    Remembering count no snap

    [size=13pt]NFL Insider: Remembering count no snap[/size]


    Pre-snap penalties are the most common infractions in the NFL. And although they are only 5 yards, they can be among the most damaging.

    Re: Remembering count no snap

    I don't remember which article it was in, but it mentioned that the starting offence had no penalties in the game against the Rams.

    That might be some of the best news to come out of that game.

    It's still early, but not having pre-snap penalties was very noticable and not bad for a first preseason game. Keep the consentration up guys.

    Re: Remembering count no snap

    Now that you guys mention it I don't remember any pre snap penalties on us either which is unheard of in preseason or regular for that matter. That is a very good sign. Another thing that will help will be to have Hutchinson back in the line up.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
