Do players ever get penalized or even fined for yelling at refs?  Fined maybe for saying something in a press conference maybe, but that still seems super rare.  I can only think of a handful of situations I remember a possible penalty, and it's almost always on the HC or sideline in general.

NE blown out in playoffs due to old and slow defense, so they list a WR as their first pick.

That alone tells you how little stock to put in that writer's picks.

I heard on the radio today that Brady is last among starting QBs in receiving roughing the passer penalties. Didn't know how to check it out, but it sure doesn't seem right.

Middle of the pack but some of these guys didn't start this season, just an average for starters from the last ten years.

Matt Ryan is king, and strangley Fitzy is his prince.

Brady gets the call when he needs it. Third down and a bad throw? Oh Tom got sneezed on, penalty.

That comes from working under Belichick.
BB was the driving force behind the massive uptick in DPI penalties and then Roughing the Passer. Belichick knew it'd heavily benefit his pass-heavy offense and it paid off.
Brady's just a little late to the game here.

There's also the fact that guys tend to avoid roughing Brady at all costs, because they KNOW the flag is coming.

The stat that would be more meaningful would be, "How many questionableroughing the passer calls has Brady been the beneficiary of?"

And honestly, I don't know the answer to that question.

It will be nice when he retires, then the football media will only mention him every hour, instead of every half hour.

Win 7 rings and be the face of the league and you'll get such treatment too, it's the nature of the beast

Some QBs are less likely to get roughing calls because, um, let's just say, "for reasons."

The massive uptick in pass interference is known as the Ty Law Rule (warning, Patriots homer writing).  It came from Bill Polian and the Peyton Manning Colts teams because they couldn't beat the physical Patriots teams, and that originally derived from what was known as the Mel Blount (Steelers corner) rule, at the whining of Don Shula, self-ushering on the Marino era.

/I wouldn't doubt Brady getting on refs came at the coaching of Belichick.  That's where he got everything else, except his kids.

Without a doubt. He gets calls he needs.
