ALL HAIL BLEERGH.

In tribute to Bleergh, here’s the week four’s best and worst penalties. Here’s a random breakdown of this weeks penalties.  I’m not going to even try to find the tape for these, nor am I making any judgement call on the individual penalties.  I’m sure that there are plays that should have been called and were not, and other plays where the penalty wasn’t needed, depending on your fandom.  This is mainly me looking a some numbers and publishing my findings, so let me know if there’s something you would like to see added or removed to the list.

Here are the best (in the eyes of Bleergh) penalties of the week:

Team Penalty Result
SEA OFFENSIVE HOLDING TD nullified
JAX ILLEGAL USE OF HANDS TD nullified
PHI OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE TD nullified
LAC OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE TD nullified
TB UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS FG nullified
KC DEFENSIVE HOLDING Turnover reversed
JAX ROUGHING THE PASSER Turnover reversed
MIN DEFENSIVE HOLDING Turnover reversed

These plays have multiple flags.  This pleases Bleergh.

Great work on these posts!

King Hippo

Donks’ Bradley Chubb (playing on a torn ACL) forced a fumble which would have greatly increased the chance of a win (Minshew miraculously picked it up and threw a completion – but 2 yard gain and tackled inbounds)…but they called a personal foul on Von for smacking him across the CHEST as he released the ball.

Jaguras took the gift and easily got in FG range, just like Chi**** two weeks previously.

This post kind of reminds me of when they used to print the police blotter in the local newspaper. Hell, they might still for all I know. There would sometimes be some pretty crazy shit there. Best ones I ever saw were when I was in Kuwait. One guy got arrested for having witchcraft gear in his car. Another time the cops did a raid on an illegal still (booze is illegal there, or was in 2008, anyway) that was being run by a bunch of North Koreans. The NKs responded by attacking the raiding cops with fucking swords. The blotter claimed there was at least a dozen of them. Not sure what the hell NKs were doing in Kuwait, anyway, never heard of that country being a warm body exporter like the Philippines, Pakistan, India, Malaya, or Sri Lanka.

So, inspired players pull one out of their ass and win one against Seattle in their owner’s honor, or winless players say “meh.”?
