quick football thoughts
1) The NFL does not let the game breathe. There are too many games where a ton of penalties are called. For example, in the Bears-Panthers game yesterday, there were 22 penalties called, 12 on Chicago and 10 on Carolina. 10 of the 14 games played yesterday had at least ten penalties called. One of them was not the Pats-Jets because as we sports fans all know, Bill Belichick is so smart and his team is filled with geniuses who never commit penalties.2) Too many defensive coaches in the NFL. I like the Bill Walsh approach. Unfortunately, there are too many Lovie Smiths and John Foxes and Mike Tomlins around.
