Andre Johnson not a fan of increased penalties

Houston Texans star wide receiver Andre Johnson isn't a fan of the increased emphasis on illegal contact and defensive holding penalties.

He says the extra penalties are bad for the game, but Johnson is hopeful that officials won't call it this tight during the regular season even though the league has said that the emphasis will continue.

“Watching the game last week against Atlanta, it kind of makes the game longer.” Johnson said. “It actually makes you hate it a little bit because every time you look around there’s a flag on the ground.”

Couldn't agree more. The flag-fest needs to stop soon.
