Just a guess, but Chargers special-teams coordinator George Stewart probably will have something to talk to his players about in the coming days.
During the Chargers’ 17-13 loss to the Cardinals in Thursday’s preseason game, an Arizona punt late in the first half resulted in four penalties called on Los Angeles. Yep, four.
Liggins, a rookie, was also called for unsportsmanlike conduct. The Cardinals accepted that penalty and declined the three holding calls.
To his credit, referee Shawn Hochuli announced the plethora of penalties without missing a beat. The announcers got a laugh out of it:
All told, the Chargers were called for 10 penalties in the game. Well, 10 that were accepted.
