NFC West Penalty Watch: Week 10

OK, one last item on the defensive pass-interference front.

Our weekly look at penalty leaders focuses on defensive pass interference calls against NFC West players since Oshiomogho Atogwe entered the league in 2005.

Some of the players with higher totals have simply spent more time in the division. Longevity favors them appearing in the chart below. I wanted to break out the totals anyway because Atogwe, flagged memorably in Week 10, had incurred only three such calls previously in five-plus seasons.

Thanks to ESPN Stats & Information for the numbers.

The Seahawks, seeking to salvage their season at Arizona in Week 10, last won a road game against the Cardinals on Nov. 6, 2005.

Shaun Alexander carried 23 times for 173 yards and two touchdowns during a 33-19 Seattle victory at Sun Devil Stadium. The Seahawks, headed to Super Bowl XL after that season, picked off Kurt Warner three times and sacked him four times.

A couple things about these teams have changed since that game. I had some fun sifting through those 2005 rosters.

If the Rams knew how bad they were going to be in 2008, they presumably would have added more than a kicker and a guard in unrestricted free agency.

Paying a $7 million signing bonus for Tennessee guard Jacob Bell might have worked better if Bell could have brought the rest of the Titans' offensive line to St. Louis as well.

The Rams' line struggled again. Josh Brown, signed to help the Rams win close games, continued to distinguish himself as one of the best long-range field goal kickers in the league. He made 10 of 13 tries from 40 to 49 yards and 6 of 8 from 50 yards or longer.

Retaining safety Oshiomogho Atogwe as a restricted free agent was an easy call.

I did not watch Brandon Chillar play for Green Bay this season, but the Rams could have used another linebacker. Some of the Rams' other moves -- adding Reche Caldwell, for example -- escaped serious criticism here because they cost relatively little financially.
