    In 2013, games averaged 12.2 penalties and 105.6 in penalty yards.

    First week of 2014 preseason: 17.7 penalties and 145.3 in penalty yards.

    Second week of 2104 preseason: 20.8 penalties and 174.4 in penalty yards.

    20 flags a game is ridiculous and the NFL should be embarrassed that they are actually defending the officiating.

    And to add to the game Hawaiiansteel mentions, Ten - NO: there were 20 flags in a 15 minute time span. At one point there were 11 penalties called in 12 plays run. That's 91% of plays being flagged in that period. That's unwatchable football.

    My favorite commentary that I'm hearing from the announcers is that this will all get straightened out by the first game. The players will understand what is happening and change their behavior and the officials may let a bit more go when it's for real. I doubt it, the first weekend is going to be a flag fest and hopefully, viewership outside of the home teams markets will dwindle and force them to rethink this ridiculousness that is happening. How can anyone think this is entertaining football?

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    And, the numbers watching continue to rise regardless of what football "oldtimers" or "purists" whatever you would like to call us have to say, there just isn't enough of us.

    I agree with the Hairdresser and Pap. There isn't enough of the old timers and the game is worse off with Goodell. For the life of me though; I can't figure out why a casual watcher would sit there and continue to watch a game after 5 plays in a row had penalties called. I would turn that off. How is it possible the powers that be think that's good? Imagine a game where the refs moved the ball the length of the field - TWICE. Good chance we'll see that this season. We've been close in the preseason already.

    And didn't Manning set numerous offensive records last year. How much more help does the offense need? Outside of the Steelers, I find myself watching less and less NFL each season. I don't play fantasy football so I don't care about gaudy stats.

    You're kidding, right? How can you believe the Pats aren't "so great" anymore? What are you basing it on? Brady + Bellichick = play offs every year.

    BS. It's called "degrees." They have gone to a degree that will make me stop. I am waiting to see how it unfolds in the real games, but if it's any where near this bad, I will swear off on the NFL, completely. I have already stopped spending any $ on ANY NFL gear for years. I refuse to support crap.

    No interest in the Pens any more, who have established themselves as soft and as clear "chokers." Always great regular seasons followed by pathetic play offs. What a shame.
