The Bleergh Report – Conference weekend

Game Time Decision
Latest posts by Game Time Decision (see all)


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.

Team Penalty Result
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.

Team Penalty Result
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
M.Christian LA 2 10

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
NE 6-61 2 2-10 4-51
LA 7-64 0 4-30 3-34
KC 4-28 0 0-0 4-28
NO 3-20 0 0-0 3-20

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.


Team Challenges  Call reversed
LA 0 0
NO 0 0
NE 1 1
KC 1 0

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.

This is great work! And it essentially confirms to me that there is, on average, one penalty for every possession.


Okay, so the Dr. Mrs, Esquire is going to the Laker game so I will be home alone for the evening. Here is my chore list before I can start drinking:

1. Respond to client re: sound analysis.
2. Arrange housesitter for next Tuesday.
3. Download 1099 from TD Ameritrade.
4. Walk dog.
5. Book hotel in Goleta for Tuesday.
6. Charge some batteries for work.
7. Put on pants (it is starting to get chilly).

Some idiot congressman in New Orleans demanded that Roger Goodell testify about the no-call.


Does BLEERGH have an English cousin? Or is this the same god, but different? Like Church of England?

There is also the linesman/assistant ref who can put up a flag to indicate the attack is offside. Lesser BLEERGH works, since is Lesser Footy.

I guess maybe penalty kicks are Children Of A Lesser BLEERGH?
