yeah the penalties and negative plays on 2nd down have killed us. Early in the year we were routinely in 3&4 3&5 etc and even when we had a 3&9 the offense was so potent we could capitalize. We aren’t that same offense tho right now and while we definitely will pick up some penalties- hopefully they are few and far between. just usually you can tell by how dak looks back there, like you mentioned the more trash back there the worse it is for us. This team could wreck a game with their d line so we have to be ready.
