Bills try to make sense of penalties

Posted by Chris Brown on September 8, 2013 – 11:21 pm

The penalty count was 10 to 4 in Buffalo’s season opening loss to the Patriots and the Bills were on the wrong side of the ledger. The players and coaches know they can’t have that many and win games.

“Penalties when you’re under pressure can happen,” said Kyle Williams. “You get a face mask when you really didn’t mean to or your holding a guy or you might hit a guy late, not excessively late but still late, the thing that’s hard are the pre-snap penalties, the off sides, the false starts, misalignments, those sorts of things are things that are killing you and you really have to pay close attention.”

“Ten to four, I think it’s hard to overcome especially when offensively you have a young quarterback and you’re a young team,” said head coach Doug Marrone. “It’s not acceptable. We have officials at every practice, we have to get together as a staff and we’ve got to figure out a way not to have that. We have to look at them and evaluate them first. The officials, we think we have the best officials in the world out there and I think they do a nice job. We just have to look at it.  Ten to four, obviously that’s a lopsided situation and poor on our part.”
