Mike Tanier's Monday Morning Hangover: Forget the Flags

It's pretty much the same as Mandatory Monday, folks. I kick off this week with a count of the holding and contact penalties, with five-year totals to show that, yes, there were a few more on Thursday and Sunday.

Then, it's off to the Gary Kubiak jokes.
