    Week 6 Update:

    Jeff Triplette: 111 (95 accepted, 16 declined)
    Jerome Boger: 106 (85 accepted, 17 declined, 4 offsetting)
    John Parry: 106 (91 accepted, 11 declined, 4 offsetting)
    *Walt Anderson: 102 (82 accepted, 12 declined, 8 offsetting)
    *John Hussey: 101 (90 accepted, 7 declined, 4 offsetting)
    Terry McCauley: 98 (84 accepted, 15 declined)
    *Ed Hochuli: 94 (79 accepted, 11 declined, 4 offsetting)
    Gene Steretore: 93 (71 accepted, 17 declined, 5 offsetting)
    *Craig Wrolstad: 93 (83 accepted, 8 declined, 2 offsetting)
    Clete Blakeman: 89 (82 accepted, 5 declined, 2 offsetting)
    *Tony Corente: 89 (72 accepted, 15 declined, 2 offsetting)
    *Ron Torbert: 89 (75 accepted, 10 declined, 4 offsetting)
    *Brad Allen: 83 (69 accepted, 11 declined, 3 offsetting)
    *Carl Cheffers: 83 (73 accepted, 10 declined)
    *Walt Coleman: 82 (74 accepted, 8 declined)
    *Bill Vinovich: 78 (63 accepted, 13 declined, 2 offsetting)
    *Pete Morelli: 77 (65 accepted, 10 declined)

    No teams were called for 6 or more penalties more than the opponent this week. As the season goes on, the officiating seems to be balancing. Two crews are over 20 per game. Walt Anderson at 20.4 and John Hussey at 20.2. Clete Blakeman is the only one under 15, at 14.8.

    All crews are over 80 percent accepted, except for Gene Stenatore at 76.3.

    At this point, if it was the playoffs, I'd want Blakeman doing the the Pats game. He throws less than 15 per game and has a 92.1 percent acceptance rate. Taken together, it strongly hints that his crew doesn't throw flags that just won't matter.

    Week 6 Addendum:

    The Bills continue to lead the NFL in penalties with 62. To put that in perspective, the #2 team, the Texans, have 50.
    In last, Carolina and Minnesota each have 32 penalties.

    This proves how wrong anecdotal accounts can be. I would have sworn that the Colts already have 1,745 holding penalties.

    In a way, you are correct. Over six games, Indy has been called for 49 penalties. (11 3 times, then 7, 5, 4). However, 16 of the 49 have been Offensive Holding. Basically, 1 in 4 calls against Indy is holding on the offense. And it should be worse! They easily could have been called for a dozen against JJ Watt, in the TNF Houston game.

    Indy is tied with the Bears for the most offensive holding calls in the NFL.

    The breakdown:

    Allen: 2
    Castonzo: 4
    Doyle: 1
    Fleener: 1
    Herremans: 1
    Holmes: 2
    Reitz: 1
    Thomas: 1
    Thornton: 3

    Eleven penalties in a game is a ton, especially for an NFL team, and they've managed to do it three times? Jesus. Not nitpick, but it's one in three penalties, so the effect you're talking about is there for Colts watchers, only it's actually worse.

    One addendum. Yesterday Nickell Robey was flagged for Being A Bill Late In A Tight Game They Should Have Been Way Ahead In Anyway And Now We Have The 47th Way To Lose A Game They Had No Business Losing, so that should be subtracted from their total.
    Go, Flaming Thumbtacks!

    Wait....you're telling me the Colts are still supposed to be an NFL team? Who knew?

    Week 7 Update:

    Jeff Triplette: 133 (115 accepted, 18 declined)
    Jerome Boger: 132 (108 accepted, 20 declined, 4 offsetting)
    Terry McCauley: 122 (104 accepted, 18 declined)
    *John Hussey: 120 (101 accepted, 13 declined, 6 offsetting)
    John Parry: 116 (101 accepted, 11 declined, 4 offsetting)
    *Walt Anderson: 114 (92 accepted, 14 declined, 8 offsetting)
    *Carl Cheffers: 108 (92 accepted, 12 declined, 4 offsetting)
    *Craig Wrolstad: 107 (95 accepted, 10 declined, 2 offsetting)
    *Ron Torbert: 105 (88 accepted, 11 declined, 6 offsetting)
    *Ed Hochuli: 103 (87 accepted, 12 declined, 4 offsetting)
    *Pete Morelli: 100 (85 accepted, 15 declined)
    *Brad Allen: 94 (80 accepted, 11 declined, 3 offsetting)
    Gene Steretore: 93 (71 accepted, 17 declined, 5 offsetting)
    *Clete Blakeman: 89 (82 accepted, 5 declined, 2 offsetting)
    *Walt Coleman: 89 (81 accepted, 8 declined)
    **Tony Corente: 89 (72 accepted, 15 declined, 2 offsetting)
    *Bill Vinovich: 89 (71 accepted, 14 declined, 4 offsetting)

    At this point, every crew is under 20 flags per game except for John Hussey, who is at exactly 20. Corente's crew has already had two weeks off, while some crews have not had one. Every crew is at over 80 percent accepted except for Stertore at 76.3 and Vinovich at 79.8. Three crews are under 15 flags per game, and all three are at 14.8, Two of those crews Clete Blakeman and Walt Coleman are the only crews over 90 percent accepted (at 92.1 and 91 respectively.) The third crew is Vinovich.

    One team was called for 6 or more penalties more than the opponent this week, and it was a doozy. Tampa was flagged 16 times to Washington's 4. 12 of the 16 calls against Tampa came in the second half. 5 were automatic first downs against the defense, which included a 17 second sequence in the 3rd where they had 2 roughing the quarterback and one defensive holding called against them in 17 seconds!

    The Bills maintain the lead for most penalties at 72.
    The Vikings are in last place at 35.

    Week 8 Update:

    Jerome Boger: 160 (133 accepted, 23 declined, 4 offsetting)
    Jeff Triplette: 145 (126 accepted, 19 declined)

    **Walt Coleman: 89 (81 accepted, 8 declined)


    As the season continues, we are seeing a regression to the mean on penalties. Teams seem to have done a lot of adjusting to the points of emphasis. At this point, only one crew is at 20+, and that is Boger at 20 even. Three are under 15 per game. Coleman at 14.8, Vinovich at 13.9, and Steretore at 13.3. Most crews are in the 80s for percent accepted. Coleman is at 91, Blakeman at 90.5, and Steretore is the only one under 80 at 77.3.

    Two teams were called for 6 or more penalites more than the opponent. Both won. The Saints were called for 12 to the Giants 5; and the Broncos were called for 11 to the Packers 2.

    Tampa made a push in the Bills bye week to tie Buffalo for the lead in penalties with 72. The Vikings still are in last, with just 39 flags against them.

    Week 9 Update:

    Jerome Boger: 180 (150 accepted, 26 declined, 4 offsetting)
    *Ron Torbert: 148 (125 accepted, 15 declined, 8 offsetting)
    *Jeff Triplette: 145 (126 accepted, 19 declined)
    *Carl Cheffers: 143 (123 accepted, 13 declined, 7 offsetting)
    *Craig Wrolstad: 141 (116 accepted, 13 declined, 2 offsetting)

    *John Hussey: 136 (115 accepted, 15 declined, 6 offsetting)
    *Terry McCauley: 134 (115 accepted, 19 declined)
    *John Parry: 134 (114 accepted, 13 declined, 7 offsetting)
    **Walt Anderson: 130 (104 accepted, 16 declined, 10 offsetting)
    **Tony Corente: 128 (103 accepted, 19 declined, 6 offsetting)
    *Clete Blakeman: 123 (110 accepted, 11 declined, 2 offsetting)
    Gene Steretore: 122 (95 accepted, 22 declined, 5 offsetting)
    **Pete Morelli: 116 (100 accepted, 16 declined)

    *Bill Vinovich: 106 (85 accepted, 17 declined, 4 offsetting)
    **Walt Coleman: 101 (91 accepted, 10 declined)

    The average number of flags per game, at this point, is 16.8. This makes our outliers even more interesting. Boger has 20 per game for a significant over. The significant unders are Coleman (14.4), Steretore (13.6), and Vinovich (13.3). Everyone is in the 80s for acceptance except Coleman (90) and Steretore (77.9).

    I want to talk about Jerome Boger for a moment. His crew has called 180 total penalties over 9 games. He has more accepted pentalties than any otger crew has total.

    Ron Torberts' crew is two games behind the lead for most flags thrown. It is an astouding number. If you root for a team that likes to run a fast paced offense, you do not want Boger doing your game, simply because the volume of flags they toss with disrupt pace.

    Only one team was called for 6 or more penalties more than the opponent this week. The Rams were called for 12, the Vikings for 6.

    The Bills take back sole possession of first with 85 penalties on the year. In last, KC and Minnesota are tied at 45.
