What can you really say about that? It was embarrassing and it was undisciplined. The players were frustrated and from the fans point of view it looked as though they were unprepared. I'm surprised the offensive line didn't get more penalties called against them, but then again, you can't hold what's already past you and in your QB's face. It was just so poor all around, the unnecessary roughness penalties came from the frustration of under-performance, however let me just say that this team carries the traits of its coach, playing on emotion, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, it didn't yesterday!

David Harris, Quinton Coples and Michael Vick all make their debuts on the list. Walls avoided a penalty because he wasn't anywhere close to their receivers, but he's still top with 56 yards. Colon added a couple of false start penalties and it really is becoming unacceptable that these concentration issues are putting us in holes. He's on 6 penalties and he should be on 15-20 by the end of the season if he continues to play like this.

All in all this was a terrible game. I'm looking forward to next week and the Bronco's because it can't get much worse, at least I hope.
