If you’ve watched any NFL preseason game, it would be hard not to notice the abundance of penalty flags that have resulted from league’s new defensive holding changes and if you ask Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall or Dallas owner Jerry Jones, you have to look no further than the reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks to find out why.
“A team like Seattle, who basically played a style that would risk a holding penalty as opposed to not having an aggressive defender back there,” Jones said. “That got a lot of complaints, and you’re seeing it [called] during the preseason.”
“Seahawks got their ring, they did it their way…now we have to pay the consequences. ” –DeAngelo Hall on more flags. #Redskins

Strong statement by Hall. If his theory is true, Seattle’s secondary won’t be the lockdown force they were last year. Guess we’ll have to wait until the start of the season to see if he’s right.
