    Brian How much of Atlanta's rating is because of their ridiculously low Penalties total?Where would they rank with average Penalties?

    If they had an average penalty rate (about .41 yds per play), it would drop them 5% points. In other words they'd be at a .60/.40 disadvantage vs SF rather than the .55/.45 they are now.

    This is probably worth a full post.
