    We have been one of the most penalized teams in the NFL since McCarthy took over. This is something that needs to be corrected if we want to be a consistant winner.

    C.D. at Packerchatters wrote a great article about this very issue.

    Here is the rest:

    PackerChatters Blog Archive Penalties Still The Elephant In The Room

    And if you think the majority of the penalties were a result of the defensive scheme, you are wrong.

    The Packers were penalized 110 times last year.

    37 came from the defense.

    48 from the offense

    25 from the special teams(most since 2000)

    Its not a scheme problem. Its a coaching problem.

    Most of it... I mean, Bigby and Harris had a lot to do about it, too. But it was most on MM.

    But believe we saw the start of it's end in the preseason. Every team we faced were more penalized than us... Specially amongst starters. I think the days of stupid penalties are over, or are beggining to end.

    If the whole team can just lower the penalities then we will be a great team :D

    Easy on the guy, it was his first penalty in over 1000 snaps. Plus, he wouldnt have gained 15 without the hold. How about that Al Harris penalty on 3rd down late in the game? (clearly ref error)

    We sucked in penalies again, BUT... Talk about non-existant penalties. The holding on Clifton, AND THE F'GIN ILLEGAL CONTACT ON HARRIS. What an absurd!

    Ahmad Carrol wasn't on the team last year was he?

    Well this is a young team and it shows in the number of penalties.
