Tom Brady blasts NFL over ‘ridiculous penalties’ in Jaguars-Titans game

Tom Brady may benefit from the protections the league gives to NFL quarterbacks, but he does not appear to be a fan of all the penalty calls referees are making.

Brady complained on Twitter Thursday night about all the penalties in the Tennessee Titans-Jacksonville Jaguars game.

He then said he was turning off the game because of all the “ridiculous penalties” in the game.

Analyst Troy Aikman didn’t like the call and said so on the air. Neither did Kurt Warner.

We’ve got news for the NFL: NOBODY watches the games to see penalty calls. Holding calls were an emphasis in the preseason, and unfortunately that trend has spilled into the regular season. Nobody wants to watch that. Maybe Tom Brady saying it will produce a change.
