But as local radio has said, more likely these factors:
1) His reaction speed is just a tiny bit behind where it was, so he overcompensates to get the play.
2) There used to be more tolerance of helmet hits than there is now.
I think there is some truth to that...
Seahawks has been one of the most outspoken teams back then(-Lynch) & we got target for the most penalties. We lead with the most penalties combine for like 5 year span.
Now when all the outspoken player left or got traded, somehow we have less penalties? 2017 lead the league in penalties, 2018 ranked 16th. This year 19th.
