    Need to stop

    Being offside on a ****ing kickoff is inexcusable.

    Yep, especially that drive with two false starts. C'mon boys!

    Encouraging though that we are only stopping ourselves rather then being stopped by the lammies.

    Get 'em out of their system now. Hopefully they'll watch the tape and learn.

    We ended up with 8 penalties - it seemed like much more than that. :huh:

    Eight is more than enough.

    Trying to find a bright side...
    Most of our penalties were mental mistakes (false starts, 12 in the huddle, etc.) which can be addressed quickly.

    I'll bet all of the o-linemen learn from that unsportsmanlike penalty (for piling on the hapless csewe d-lineman). They'll see that film clip a few times with several distinct reminders from Mr Grimes on why ya don't do that.

    Good point, not like they were mostly holding penalties and illegal blocks.

    one of those penalties i will take every time. we turned a pass interference call to prevent a sure six into a field goal. i find that smart.

    another penalty was for having 12 on the field (illegal sub) when in fact one of ours was injured and trying to get off. that was a bad call on the part of the refs.

    overall, the zebras did a good job. they missed a horsecollar against us, but then flagged us for an injury, and they took away a reception, but we got it the next play anyway.

    you can fire away at the other penalties tho :)

    Definately a sign of a young team, on its first excursion of the year.
    Like Ladyblaise said, it could have been 9 if the horsecollar had been called, but all in all, it could have been much much worse IMO.

    Lets just hope they did get the mistakes out of the way now. I'd hate to see this team end up like Neuheisel's clubs which lacked any fundamentals on the penalties and dicipline.

    I thought the refs blew a couple late hits by Rams defenders - particularly one where Cody was lying on the ground and some dipsh!t Ram (repetitive, I know) speared him right in the face.

    Yeah, that one was pretty bad. I think it came RIGHT after girthy (?) was called for his personal foul.
