    Even though the refs called 40 penalties according to Sportscenter, only 20 of them for 200 some yards were official. Here' the record for most penalties from nfl.com

    Most Penalties, Both Teams, Game
    37 Cleveland (21) vs. Chi. Bears (16), Nov. 25, 1951
    35 Tampa Bay (20) vs. Seattle (15), Oct. 17, 1976
    34 San Francisco (22) vs. Buffalo (12), Oct. 4, 1998

    Most Yards Penalized, Both Teams, Game
    374 Cleveland (209) vs. Chi. Bears (165), Nov. 25, 1951
    310 Tampa Bay (190) vs. Seattle (120), Oct. 17, 1976
    309 Green Bay (184) vs. Boston (125), Oct. 21, 1945

    It could have been worse!! Still Dallas needs to tighten it up for the next game.

    We are still making to many mistakes...this is supposed to be a very disaplined BP team...

    I was not comfy until Vandy made the FG...thoughts of last week and last years game would not let me be calm.

    If we can get past our own mistakes we should pummel some teams.

    Aside from the actual penalty yardage, if you factor in all the yardage we lost because of the big plays that were called back, the impact was much bigger than the basic stats show.

    We were indeed.

    However, the refs were way to flag happy. Some iffy calls and some WHAT!!?? calls. They set the tempo early. They shouldn't be setting the tempo, IMO.

    Your not kidding. a 50 yard play off a screen play was one of the biggest.

    I thought it was a great setup on the screen and then seeing what the refs called I was pretty PO'ed on what looked like a pretty ticky tack foul.
