    Penalties!

    Hate to open a wound, but I was at a wedding and missed the penalty fest last night.

    This discussion is in Offseason since its preseason, but isn't this the job of Childress to make sure these assclowns aren't leading the league in penalties? Isn't this the time to drill in that discipline?

    I heard a new guy had 4 penalties alone!

    Penalties were absolutely rediculous. I bet Childress chewed ass all the way back to Winter Park.

    Re: Penalties!

    11 penalties called on the Vikes and 10 enforced for 75 yards:

    1 - DeGeare, Illegal Block 10 yards
    2 - Mills, False Start 5 yards
    3 - Clark, Holding 10 yards
    4 - Radovich, False Start 5 yards
    5 - E.Griffin, Illegal Block (punt) 10 yards
    6 - Clark, False Start 5 yards
    7 - Clark, False Start 5 yards
    8 - Mills, Holding 10 yards
    9 - Mitchell, Offsides declined
    10 - Clark, Holding 10 yards
    11 - Gerhart, Offsides (kickoff) 5 yards

    The Gerhart and Griffin special teams penalties aren't good but I didn't see them and wouldn't attach a lot of meaning to it. I would think they just need to practice timing and learn the special teams rules.

    Clark was terrible, but the offensive line and a tight end (Mills) were bad in general. Too many false starts, too many holding calls.

    Who is the offensive line coach? Hueber? We already know you can't get your guys to run block (saw that again last night), but can you please get them to remember the snap count by the time the regular season starts? At least it was the reserves.

    Bolded are the rookies, the rest are backups. At least there weren't a ton of penalties against the starters. Besides, this is what preseason is for, ironing out the mistakes

    *edit, Clark isn't a rookie, but he's never played a game, sooo yea.

    I'm not overly worried. Its the first preseason game, I expect things will improve during game 2 and 3. If its the same crap on game 4, then there's cause for a bit of concern.

    This. There are always a ton of penalties in the first game. The majority of them came back to back to back to back *takes a breath* to back and then we gave up that punt return td. That was concerning, but it was backups being backups.

    We smoked a terrible team without any play maker starters on offence (harvin, rice, favre, ap, schank). Nothing to worry about
    We're bringing purple back.

    Re: Penalties!

    Anyone know where we ranked last year in penatlies??

    It felt like we were getting flagged all the time, but that could be beacuse I enjoy being pissed at Childress and what I view as bad coaching.

    It's expected that the very first game after the offseason will have some mistakes. The Oline also has to get used to the ref being in a different position as well. More holding penalties may be called with him being back there.
