    Snapper Loeffler is quietly effective in Vikings' success

    http://www.startribune.com/sports/12447806.html

    One of the unnoticed contributors to the Vikings' success this season has been long snapper Cullen Loeffler, who in four years has had one bad snap, that coming in his second year, against the Lions.

    And Loeffler said he is approaching 500 snaps with the Vikings.

    Loeffler, the former Texas snapper who was signed four years ago as a rookie free agent, gets good notices from kicker Ryan Longwell, who is having a great year, having made 17 of 20 field goals. Longwell said he is fortunate to have somebody as good as Loeffler at his job.

    "For nine years at Green Bay, Rob Davis was my snapper," Longwell said. "I've been lucky because Loeffler is just as good..."

    I feel like going back and finding the thread where people were bitching about a long snapper (Loeffler) taking up a roster spot.

    I remember a KQRS morning show sketch about long snappers way back.
    Needless to say longsnappers get no respect.
