Not that it matters, but...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I seem to recall very few, if any, penalties Saturday night against us. Anyone have the stats on that? Just grasping for something positive to cling to. I am still reeling from this defeat!!!!...

Penalties

I got nothing for you on that, but I will say I was calling for a flag numerous times. The hit on PT was legal according to experts but you can't tell me they wouldn't have flagged that 9 out of 10 times anyways. They had two late hits out of bounds, some pass interference and other stuff. Every week, I'm screaming for them to "let us play football" and last week, we got it.

I just remember Drew getting hit a couple times late and not a single roughing flag was ever thrown

There really hasn't been a lot flags thrown in the post season. Looks like the league has heard the complaints about the refs being too much of factor in the out come of games.

We had one penalty called on us and it was declined.

That's correct. It was a very penalty free game. Who officiated that game? Anyone know.

Yes I can. That happens a half a dozen times every game and is not called because it isn't a penalty.

Yep, 0 penalties in a shoot-out like that ... it's a testimony to team discipline and efficiency.
