The thing that I just absolutely can not fathom is the repeated penalties, especially pre-snap penalties. False starts, delays of game, it's just mind boggling. The line has been together long enough now to where it shouldn't be that much of a problem.
Absolutely 100 percent agree with you on the presnap penalties, those are ridiculous especially at home. But I don't agree with not including the Steelers and Ravens in the group of the big boys. The Jets got all the way to the AFC Championship game with a QB they wouldn't let throw more than five yards down the field.
