OL penalties: Eagles lead the NFC East

When writing up my picks article this morning, I noticed that the Bears OL had committed 20 penalties this season.  It seemed high, but just to be sure, I checked a few other teams for comparative purposes.  And… It is high.  In doing so, however, I noticed that the Eagles’ total is also quite high, with 19, so I figured I’d just list all the bEast teams from lowest penalty total to highest:

Player Team Snaps Penalties Snaps per penalty
William Beatty Giants 478 3 159
Chris Snee Giants 399 3 133
Kareem McKenzie Giants 478 2 239
David Diehl Giants 476 1 476
David Baas Giants 362 1 362
Kevin Boothe Giants 196 0 No penalties
Total penalties     10

(the rest after the jump)…

Player Team Snaps Penalties Snaps per penalty
Jammal Brown Redskins 472 4 118
Trent Williams Redskins 297 4 74
Erik Cook Redskins 181 2 91
Sean Locklear Redskins 175 2 88
Will Montgomery Redskins 472 1 472
Chris Chester Redskins 472 0 No penalties
Kory Lichtensteiger Redskins 291 0 No penalties

Derrick Dockery Cowboys 70 2 35
Phil Costa Cowboys 460 1 460
Montrae Holland Cowboys 114 1 114
Bill Nagy Cowboys 283 0 No penalties
Player Team Snaps Penalties Snaps per penalty
Jason Peters Eagles 367 5 73
Kyle DeVan Eagles 294 5 59
Todd Herremans Eagles 508 3 169
Jason Kelce Eagles 508 3 169
Evan Mathis Eagles 501 1 501
Danny Watkins Eagles 215 1 215
King Dunlap Eagles 68 1 68
Winston Justice Eagles 78 0 No penalties

A few quick notes:

– I was very hard on William Beatty for committing a rather large number of penalties last season in limited number of snaps.  It appears that may have been a tad flukey.  He’s been much better this season in that regard.  Apologies, big guy.

– Kyle DeVan was terrible.

– Jason Peters has 5 penalties (mostly false starts), which ties him for the division lead, but you just kind of live with that because of his otherwise general awesomesauceness.

– Chris Chester had only 2 penalties in 1034 snaps last season.  He doesn’t have any this season.

– Despite the high number of penalties, the Eagles’ OL has been by far and away the best in the division this season.

    I have noticed that online degree is getting favorite because accomplishing your college degree online has changed into a popular method for many people. Numerous people have certainly not had a chance to attend a regular college or university although seek the increased earning possibilities and a better job that a Bachelors Degree grants. Still other individuals might have a college degree in one discipline but would like to pursue another thing they now have an interest in.

    Want to argue that the Eagles OL hasn’t been “far and away the best in the division” but can’t. Damn you Jimmy.

  15. Joe D says:

    i think peters just tries to get off the ball as fast as he can which can lead to the false starts….but i agree i forgive him. hes like willie roaf in the fact that he can maul you or make the athletic play too.

  16. giants fan says:

    Props for admitting it, re: Beatty.

  17. fiftyfourd says:

    Agree with DeVan being horrible.

    I was actually expecting Peters false starts to be higher. It seems like every false start, I can beat the ref to calling out “False start, offense #71”.

  18. slandog says:

    Jason Peters I don’t really give him bye for the penalties. False starts are bonehead mistakes. Yes, he is a very good LT, but those bonehead false starts are keeping him from being the best. Why can’t he get the snap count down?

    Sure some stadiums are louder then others, but this has been a problem of his forever it seems. It’s a problem that should be really pretty easy to fix if he wanted too. Is he just too lazy to fix the problem or just have the attitude of oh well I’m doing fine otherwise, why try to be better? Either way, for paying him so much it upsets me when he does this almost once per game. That should be the last thing he does – false start over and over again.

  19. Anders says:

    What I dont understand about Peters is why he gets so many false start penalties against him, when he such a dominating player. Also one o Kelce’s penalties was maybe the weakest holding penalty I have ever seen.

    1. Jason-E says:

      Weakest? No. It was just a bad call. There was no holding.
