Saints News, 12/11/15: No One Commits Penalties Like Brandon Browner

New, comments

From Kevin Seifert at ESPN.com: It is all but impossible to discuss the NFL's high penalty totals this season without focusing on the absurdity of Brandon Browner's role in it. Browner committed three more penalties Sunday, bringing his season total to 21 and expanding his already-commanding lead in our recurring Penalty All-Star salute. "[Browner's] situation is that he doesn't get it. He's getting called so many times, and they're legitimate calls. He doesn't seem to understand the line and that someone is always watching him, especially defensive backs. There is an official assigned to each route. The best players know when to back off. They know where that line is and they don't cross the line."
