Default The new house of pain?

Flagged Frequently

Here's a look at which NFL teams lead the league in specific penalties

PENALTY* LEADER (#)
False Start Bills (18)
Off. Holding Packers (16)
Unnecess. Roughness Texans (9)
Def. Pass Interference Ravens (9)
Def. Offside Titans (9)
Delay of Game Bengals (7)
12 Men on the Field Jets (4)
Face Mask Bucs (4)
Off. Pass Interference Chiefs (4)
Tripping Cowboys (3)
*Does not include declined penalties

Full Article

For all the complex strategy involved in football, the game is more often than not decided by a weighted piece of yellow fabric. But important as penalties are in the NFL, there is surprisingly little info out there. So we decided to spend some time counting every infraction this season, reading the play-by-play logs of 129 NFL games to see what types of rules players and teams are breaking (we've got to do something when we're done perfecting our fantasy-football rosters).


Getty Images
The Dallas Cowboys are the most nefarious trippers, and the Houston Texans get unnecessarily rough too often. Curiously, the Green Bay Packers are the worst when it comes to offensive holding. They've been called for it 16 times, despite the fact their quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, has been sacked a league-high 37 times. The most oft-called penalty in the league is the false start (368 times for 1,808 yards), and no team is worse at containing itself than the Buffalo Bills. They've been flagged 18 times—perhaps they're too excited to see what tremendous play receiver Terrell Owens will make next.

On defense, the Baltimore Ravens, the league's most-penalized team, can't keep their hands to themselves in the secondary—they've got a league-high nine defensive pass interference calls. But at least they're not sneaking extra guys on the field. The New York Jets have been caught using extra defenders four times. Apparently, memorizing the nuances of exotic blitz packages is easier than counting to 11.

Frank Bush did say his defense would be more "violent," "play upfield,"
"knock the crap out of people." They are doing that. No more weak
pass rush to go with soft zones. Hell, even his cornerbacks are crushing
receivers near the ball. I likes what I sees.

I've been saying that For YEARS! Offenses should see "Houston Texans" on their schedules and say "Oh God not those guys" because they KNOW they'll be in for a world of hurt. Now...it begins.

The term "House of Pain" has a bittersweet effect on me.

I can't hear it without thinking of that retarded little monkey, Glanville.

But I did love the fact that opposing teams dreaded playing in the Astrodome because they knew the Oilers were going to bring the wood.

I'd love it if the Texans could start imposing that kind of dread among their opponents.

Part of the old Astrodome's "House of Pain" was the rabid fan atmosphere that made it difficult for opposing offenses. We have a long way to go as fans before Reliant has that kind of vibe. Although, I do think it will return once the Texans win consistently and start making the playoffs on a regular basis.

Didn't the Texans have a reputation of being a "soft" team early in the year?

Yes....but Rex Ryan was also reffering to the offense and that side of the ball hasn't changed it's stripes yet........we can't run the ball and we turn the ball over at inopportune times.

So right now, we're building a badass tough defense that hands out punishment, but we still have a "finesse" offense that struggles to get a yard or make "the play" when it really matters. We really need to focus on fixing that other issue this offseason.

I think that problem is caused by our ZBS and the type of players that are best at it. The coaches apparently defend Meyers and he is I guess good at that, but when we need to power run for short yardage he sucks. He's also a liability in pass coverage sometimes, I think.

All in all, I just don't like the ZBS and O-lines that are built for it. It makes you better at running in the middle of the field, but your short yardage suffers, and many times so does your pass blocking. However, we built it and rebuilding sux.

The key to the ZBS's success is the center. It ain't always about size, either.
Just take a look at Jeff Saturday. The Zone Stretch is the bread and butter
of the Indianapolis offense. You don't see Jeff gettin' blown off the ball, and
Edge and Addai had great careers running behind him.

Myers could certainly be upgraded, but we are running two backup guards. The middle needs attention.
