England Patriots will have to think of a solution to minimize the
penalties. Defensive end Deatrich
Wise was flagged for a seventh time in the game against the Miami
Dolphins. He is tied for
the team lead in penalties thrown against a single player.
The defensive end
is knotted with veteran wide
receiver Julian Edelman and cornerback JC Jackson with seven flags thrown
against. Stats show that Wise also is third on the team in penalty yards with 70 behind Jason
McCourty (76) and Jackson (74). Well, if you ask him, it looks like he is ready to
provide a solution to this problem.
“It is what it is.
Yeah,” Wise said Wednesday when asked if
he will stay more disciplined.
How will he stop these flags? Is there a way for him
to stop this?
“Don’t get flags,”
The defensive end is tied for fifth in flags among NFL defensive linemen. Wise has been “penalized for roughing the passer three times, illegal use of hands twice, a horse-collar tackle once, and was flagged for offsides once but it was an offsetting foul.”
The Patriot has also only played 22.7 percent of defensive snaps in the regular season. Wise only was flagged twice last season and five times as a rookie player in 2017.
New England ranks
sixth-fewest in flags thrown against in the regular season. The team has had
the seventh-fewest yards against because of this issue. Wise had two sacks, 10 quarterback hits and 26 tackles as a situational
player in 2019.
He may have a part-time role, but he is third on the team in quarterback hits.
The Patriots are getting ready for a playoff run. This
will be the first time for the team to play a wild-card round since 2009. The Patriots
nation didn’t hope for the team to play another game. Having some time off
would be of great help for the team, but the Patriots have to play again. They
have a few injured players, but head coach Bill Belichick always has a winning formula
for his team. They are champions.
