Happens every game. As far as the Patriots not being penalized, that probably has something to do with discipline and coaching.
I agree 100 percent.I don't remember seeing the fined play either.
They say holding happens every game as well,but it's not always seen/called.
Actually, they say it happens every play
, which is what you probably meant to say, GP.
But I think the coaching and discipline thing is right on here.
Who had less penalties than the Patriots this year?
Least Penalized teams:
2)NYJets - 91
3)Denver - 93
4)Baltimore - 94
5)Pittsburgh - 99
6)New England - 101
Teams that I would personally venture to say are "well coached".
Let's look at penalty yardage:
1)Seattle - 669
2)NYJets - 693
3)Indy - 801
4)Cinci - 810
5)New England - 822
Sure New England wasn't at the very top of these catagories, but they were close enough with their talent and experience to make them pretty dominant. Furthermore, these stats might give us a little insight into how and why the Jets and Seahawks managed to make the playoffs despite playing rather sub-par ball for a good portion of the season.
