ALL HAIL BLEERGH.

In tribute to Bleergh (the God of Penalties), here’s the week twelves’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
TEN OFFENSIVE HOLDING TD nullified
NYJ OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE TD nullified
MIA UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS pickerception reversed
NYJ ILLEGAL USE OF HANDS pickerception reversed
SEA DEFENSIVE HOLDING fumble reversed
DEN ILLEGAL BLINDSIDE BLOCK pickerception reversed
PIT ILLEGAL USE OF HANDS fumble reversed

 

These plays have multiple flags.  This pleases Bleergh.  This week with a triple penalty on a single play ( you know which play)

*note that the zeros are penalties called from previous weeks but still in the list.  Way too lazy to remove them and it ups my word count. Ha.

Offensive holding with over 19% of the total penalties called this week, down from last week of 22%.

Total number of penalties are down from 223 last week to 223 this week with 4 teams on bye.

 

ALL HAIL BLEERGH.

Evidently Colorado girl just broke it off with her boyfriend of a month.

Who has two thumbs, a fake military rank in his screen name and now has so many text alerts that there’s smoke coming out of his phone?

If you have to pee, you must go to Ole Miss.

Eli is cross that he raised his leg instead of his hand. ALWAYS ASK PERMISSION!

I woke up hungover, and then I shoveled 2 1/2 feet of snow from my sister in law’s deck. Thought I was gonna blow some festive chunks while I was out there, but I feel quite a bit better now!
