ALL HAIL BLEERGH.

In tribute to Bleergh (the God of Penalties), here’s the week ten’s best and worst penalties. Here’s a random breakdown of this weeks penalties.  I may or may not 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 bestest (in the eyes of Bleergh) penalties of the week:

Team Penalty Result
KC OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE TD nullified
ARI DEFENSIVE OFFSIDE Missed field goal nullified
OAK DEFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE Interception nullified
OAK DEFENSIVE OFFSIDE Interception nullified
SEA DEFENSIVE HOLDING Interception nullified

These plays have multiple flags.  This pleases Bleergh.

Total number of penalties are up from 215 last week to 219 this week with 4 teams on bye.

Once again, I plead – nay, DEMAND that multiple penalties be stacked. Let’s have some 1st and 35 ACTION!!
