View Full Version : offensive holding calls

Is there a place that maintains all statistics for this year? I would like to see how our holding penalties compare to other teams over the season. In another thread I started, I seriously cannot remember the last time the opponent was called for offensive holding, but we get called for it EVERY week (and just about every time it brings back a ten plus yard advance). If teams get called for holding on a regular basis during the season but somehow play penalty free against the Steelers, then something is extremely fishy.

What I would explicitly like to see is if most teams average a couple of holding calls per game (like us), EXCEPT when they play the Steelers.

Anybody know how to find the info? :Boobs

I here you though... it's like the refs have us under a microscope for 3 quarters and anytime we get momentum they throw the flag...

but with our blitzing D the other teams rarely get called for holding...

thiese flags and dropped passes are the main reason our O looks so bad lately.

Just checked it out. The site says "under construction."

They are non-calls not calls. It is an embarassment how refs are trying to protect QBs from Woodley and Harrison.

Think of the NHL 10 years ago where the refs blatantly manipulated games.

Harrison is held one out of every 1.5 plays on average. It is a joke.
