ALL HAIL BLEERGH.
In tribute to Bleergh, here’s the Conference weekend 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.
*Bleergh says that this was totally Pass interference, as is disappointed in the non call.
*And Bleergh says this is nawt a penalty, but likes that it was called.
Here are the best (in the eyes of Bleergh) penalties of the week:. Sadly no turnovers or lost points this week.
|NE||DPI||23 yard penalty|
|KC||Roughing the Passer||15 yard penalty|
|LA||Chop Block||15 yard penalty|
|LA||DPI||14 yard penalty|
|NE||DPI||13 yard penalty|
Here are the worst (in the eyes of Bleergh) penalties of the week. Not much fun this week.
|KC||Illegal Block Above the Waist||3 yards|
|A bunch at 5 yards|
For multiple penalties, just 2 players with multiple penalties this week.
|Player – Team||Number of penalties||Total yards|
|J.Jackson – NE||3||41|
And here’s the total number of penalties per team this weekend, now with penalties against but declined, and splits by half with yardage:
|Team||Penalties against- Yards||Penalties declined||First half||Second half|
For one of NE’s declined penalties, it was on a play with 2 defensive penalties, and KC took the one with the most yards ( 23 yard DPI vs 5 yard Defensive Offside). Multiple flags on one play warms Bleergh’s cold heart.
I’m going to spend some time with the full 2018 season of plays and find the 2018 best and worst penalties and players next week. I’ll also get some team stats for the least and most penalizes team by shear number and by yards. I’m hoping to find a 99 yard penalty, a 1 yard penalty, a whole bunch of TD’s and hopefully field goal reversals, and last but not least turnovers nullifed by penalties. Let me know there is something else you’d like to see.
ALL HAIL BLEERGH.
