Penalties - well done

  • As much as we cracked on it earlier this season, I have to give the coaches and players credit for stemming the tide.

    I'm not sure what the numbers are the last few games, but its MUCH improved - and no bone head ones either.

    Despite the loss, the lack of penalties REALLY helped keep my blood pressure down.

  • So we know that the coaches can identify a problem area and get the players to work on it.

    Maybe the coaches can do the same with their 3rd down defense (though I imagine that they'll need to turn that focus on themselves).

  • I wrote about this in my Preview piece this past week. That IS one of the true bright spots of this team. Here is what I wrote going in to the Lions game ...

    Much has been made about the Seahawks and their penalty situation. In their first 3 games, the Seahawks committed an almost unthinkable 32 penalties. But for all the airtime that Seahawk fans have been spending jamming the airwaves with complaints … that trend has actually changed dramatically. For those who haven’t been paying attention … since the Green Bay game and the return of the NFL’s regular referees … the Seahawks have just 19 miscues in 4 games. If you haven’t done the math in your head, let me lay it out for you …

    In Games Officiated by Replacement Refs …
    @ Cardinals ……………… 13 penalties
    Home against Cowboys ….... 5 penalties
    Home against Packers ….… 14 penalties
    Average Penalties/Game …. 10.66 penalties/game
    ------------------------------------------------------
    In Games Officiated by Regular Refs …
    @ Rams ……………………. 5 penalties
    @ Panthers ………………… 7 penalties
    Home against Patriots ……… 4 penalties
    @ SF 49ers …………………. 3 penalties
    Average Penalties/Game …. 4.75 penalties/game

    Over their last 3 games then the Seahawks have averaged just 4.7 penalties/game … which (believe it or not) is the 4th FEWEST in the NFL.


    Yesterday, the Hawks had only 2 penalties for 10 yards. So that trend has continued. In fact, over the Seahawks last 3 games, they have averaged only 3 penalties/game. That's the FEWEST number of penalties in the NFL. At least there's at least one positive we can hang our hats on.

    I expect Pete to jump knee deep into the 3rd down D like he did the penalties.

    ... and 100 yard running games on the road ... where we lose (Stl, SF, Det).

    Who the heck knows anymore, conventional wisdom is whacked.
