    center snap listless?

    It was a great game.
    There is one thing that I noticed.
    On several occasions it seemed to me that the snap from the center to Favre when he was in the shot gun was short and listless.
    Favre seemed to have to reach out for the ball and even step forward to catch it.
    Did anyone else notice that?

    Actually, I did notice it, but put it in the back of my mind and forgot about it, but now that you mention it, it did seem like a rather weak, high arced snap.
    I wonder if Sully is nervous about perhaps snapping it too hard and missing?

    Yeah, even in pregame warmups Sullivan wasn't snapping that well; however, we didn't give up a sack, and I am sure happy about that. Come on people. We won this game, and let's think about the Rams this weekend.

    Not only weak, but also off target quite a few times.
    But the overall picture is the ball got there and Favre still had time to look around.
    Sully may have worried too much about the 3-4 scheme, but blocking-wise he did a good job.

    Agree if the problem is short off target snap but
    outcome is "gets good protection" Im sure BF will take the poor snaps as oppossed to be being hit

    Re: center snap listless?

    Wow, didn't think I would see anything negative on how the C (whole OL) played last night.......

    Something to think about.
    We've seen our OL against the 3-4 this year several times and those teams seem to be geared up to execute that scheme which resulted in alot of sacks for Noodle Arm.

    I am still convinced that the PUKERS don't have the right cats to implement the 3-4, thus the good play by our OL and 0 sacks for gramps.

    In the end, the OL did thier job and did it well in the pass protection area. First time in a while we can say that.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I said to my wife when we were watching the game that the OL were playing but did notice a couple of snaps being 'slow' back to BF as RK said. Not a major issue but needs to watched out for.
    Think it helped us as well with Kampman keeping dropping back into coverage instead of rushing but you play against what you've given so no complaints from me
    ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Having a NT on top of you definitely puts added pressure on you as a center (I played C and long-snapper).

    My guess is he was overly-focusing on getting the snap off quickly to get to his block and that was coming at the expense of power on the snap.....


    Trust me, I'm a doctor.
