    You are right. I used to hate those false starts more than anything

    It's the offensive penalties that are down that matter.

    I feel like in the past they have had to work so hard b/c of poor fundamentals to not commit penalties that it caused some overthinking and that sort of thing. Now, not committing penalties is, I think, less of a burden and more second nature, so they can be more consistent with not committing them.

    It's making a huge difference. Not having several false starts per game forcing you into harder and harder first down conversions makes a big difference.

    now if we can get the 3rd down conversion rate up we should be able to really do something on offense
