Jones, Hall blame Seahawks for penalties

By Terry Blount

RENTON, Wash. -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall blame the Seattle Seahawks for the increased number of penalty flags thrown in the first two preseason games.

“It came about from Seattle,” Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 FM The Fan radio in Dallas. “They basically played a style that would risk a holding penalty as opposed to not having an aggressive defender back there. That got a lot of complaints and you're seeing it reflected during the preseason."

Hall also said he believes the extra penalties are a result of the way the Seahawks played defense en route to winning the Super Bowl.

“The Seahawks got their ring, they did it their way,” Hall told NBC4 in Washington D.C. “Now we all have to pay the consequences.”
