NFC West penalty watch: 2009 totals

Rams tackle Alex Barron led the NFL in penalties with 14 during the 2009 season.

Seahawks cornerback Marcus Trufant led the NFL in penalty yardage with 133.

Two other NFC West players -- Kurt Warner and Deuce Lutui of the Cardinals -- reduced penalties dramatically. Warner committed three, down from 11 last season (most were delays of game which might not have been his fault in every case). Lutui committed four, down from 12.

NFL teams averaged 110 accepted and declined penalties during the season. Oakland had the most with 137. Jacksonville had the fewest with 78.

NFC West penalty counts: Cardinals 119, Rams 118, 49ers 112, Seahawks 107.
