    Thought you boys in Purple might enjoy this post.. All Flag Team..

    A little Packers facts for the opposition.

    [size=18pt]Flag these guys down when there's a penalty on the play[/size]

    1. Habitual offenders

    Green Bay's Woodson (12) and Al Harris (seven) lead all cornerbacks in penalties this season. The San Diego Chargers' Quentin Jammer leads all corners with 33 penalties since 2004, tied with Houston Texans guard Chester Pitts and Miami Dolphins linebacker Jason Taylor for the eighth-most penalties in the league, regardless of position.

    The Packers are setting a dubious standard for defensive backfields.

    Woodson has 31 penalties since 2004, second-most among corners. Former teammate Ahmad Carroll somehow ranks third with 30 penalties -- even though he's out of the league

    3. Good guys

    The best players shouldn't need to bend the rules. The crafty ones know how to avoid detection.

    Perennial All-Pro guards Will Shields and Steve Hutchinson each had only two penalties from 2004 through last season, despite ranking first and fourth, respectively, in snaps played by offensive linemen. Hutchinson has zero penalties this season. Shields retired in April.

    ...

    Cornerbacks always will rank among the most-penalized players. It's the nature of the position, particularly with the league eager to facilitate passing.

    Most corners with extensive playing time since 2004 are well into double-digit penalties, but a few have managed to do their job without attracting much heat.

    The short list includes Buffalo's Terrence McGee (seven), Miami's Renaldo Hill (seven), New England's Asante Samuel (eight), Minnesota's Antoine Winfield (nine) and Denver's Champ Bailey (10).

    The coaching staff put boxing gloves on him during practice to try to keep him from holding receivers.

    I bet most of those penalties this year have come at the line, in the first 5 -10 yards, illegal contact.
    They are aggressive, break them first so you don' have to bend.
    It is a philosophy that I would like to employ on the Vikes.
    They will have trouble with TO and big strong upper body guys with long arms, They might have to try something different that day.
    Our WRs couldn't over come the aggressiveness.

    Yep almost all of them are holding calls just after the 5 yard chuck.. Rice seems to get off the Jam well in the first game, other than that.. you are correct, they struggled with it.

    To me, the defensive back is at such a disadvantage currently with the rules they way they are, it is BS.. but dems the rules I guess. Winfield is a straight up cover man though.. I wish he wore the Green and Gold.
