Over the past few months many readers have asked me to break down the defensive penalties for the New Orleans Saints over the last three seasons to see if the allegations made on the team and the actual play out on the field had a connection.
When you break down the key defensive penalties where there may have been talk in the lockerroom and football rhetoric about big hits and knockout shots the play on the field didn’t reflect it. The breakdown below, which was greatly aided by the talents of skilled stats man Joe Liss, who has been a major help in the television booth for many local college games, shows there is no connection.

Finally some one put it writing and it goes to show how the media ignores the facts. it still enough to make you wonder what the heck the NFL has as actual proof in the way of hits to back up there case. Say whatever you want in the locker room but it is the plays on the field that count.

the stats seem a low in my book but it still gives a feel for where the saints stand in the pecking order of fouls

In these past couple of years, you'd have thought the defense was giving Williams "bounty" $$$ to let them stay on the field as badly as they played in some of the games.....

Maybe they misunderstood and it's booty money?lol

The Media Sucks. The whole thing was built by the NFL and supplemented by the biased media coverage interested in preserving their 'cozy' relationship with the league.

I am still a very angry young man. I'm anxious to hear the latest legal development...and I hope Roger goes to hell.
