More than half of the penalties were mental lapses. I think Tyron had 3 false starts, but it was JPP on the opposite end. The false starts will be worked on and I think will be eliminated. What I didn't see was a whole lot of defensive penalties, which was great.


I think the point of the OP was that people say that every year... Yet, those penalties NEVER seem to be eliminated.

At the risk of admitting that I am an old fart.. I remember the Tom Landry days.. and penalties were never an issue.. I don't recall any pre snap sanfus... they just didn't happen and the Cowboys had more pre snap movements than anyone in the league and yet they never got called for illegal motion or formation.. 4 or 5 penalties a game was probably the average for a Landry team and the reason was he simply did not PUT UP WITH IT. You jump off sides, you move before the snap, you don't play.. period. He had an accountability system in place and there was zero tolerance.

It's started in practice and that's why you never saw it on Sunday. The players that were apt to move before the snap never got on the field and yet he still won most of this games. Go figure.

You nailed it!
