    2012 Patriots penalties

    From ESPNBoston.com:

     

    In 2011, the Patriots were the fifth-least penalized team in the NFL with just 80 regular-season flags. That number jumped to 98 in 2012, an average of 6.13 per game. 

    That total was good for ninth-least in the NFL, a respectable figure and a sign of a disciplined group. In looking at the regular season totals, 39 of the flags thrown on the Patriots (including declined penalties) were pre-snap penalties (false starts, illegal formations, etc.) -- also a respectable total. Those are the kinds of penalties that coaches aim to avoid most specifically, as they can be tightened up with sound discipline and technique. 

    Another detail that sticks out from this list is that center Ryan Wendell, who played the most snaps in the NFL this season, logged just two penalties. That's yet another suggestion that his season has been stellar. 

    The full breakdown of the season (includes declined penalties):

    If Chandler had the reputation/legacy like, say Freeney or Osi, he would have drawn at least 10 holding penalties.  I mean goodness gracious, the kid was raped at the line all season long.  It was very uncomfortable to watch.  Let's hope in the coming years as he builds his resume, he starts earning some more respect from the officials.

    I have to agree Irish.Chandler gets hosed on calls regularly.The calls definitely go to the big name players.

     There's also room for improvement on the calls that are mental errors rather than physical ones,like 12 men on the field for example.
