    There's nothing other than he was in pain Saturday. Just watch the first 5 minutes of the video I posted. He looks hurt

    He's listed on the ATL chart this week. Minihan is not. Hansen is back.

    I’ve rewatched your post and stand by my comment. Snap was off, leading to timing issues on offense. I can’t think of another game where I was so aware of the center.

    Bullshit, you whiny bitch. Were they NFL quality snaps? Nope. The snaps got there and were easily handled. None were rolled back. None over the head. I realize, of course, that if you were a center, all the snaps would have been at the perfect elevation and location, prick. There was nothing wrong with the vast majority of the snaps last Saturday. You are just a whiney ass little bitch who complains about every ööööing thing.

    I don't know if this is trolling or not, but:
    • Snaps were not easily handled and often off the mark, causing the QB to adjust and throw off the timing of plays
    • Not expecting NFL quality snaps, but FBS quality snaps would be nice
    • I wouldn't have done a better job, but I also had 0 FBS scholarship offers, so there's that
    • Maybe you're confusing me with someone else, but I can't remember a time I complained about the performance of a player. There's probably some over the decade, but not "every ööööing thing" which should be an indication that this was a particularly poor performance

    That's how "also" works

    You contradicted your own statement in your bullet points. You expected us to have FBS quality snaps but from a guy that had 0 FBS shcolarship offers, like yourself, who also stated that you would not have done any better. I expect us to have FBS quality snaps too, but this guy is our 3rd string, possibly 4th center. Minihan (who I believe is 2nd got hurt), then Cooper. I believe Lagod also snaps some but he was not dressed for this game, so he may even be 3rd.

    Great point. Most long snappers don’t have another position other than long snapper. Most are not big enough. My nephew is a LS and that’s all he does.

    When I was in HS, I was the center and punt snapper. The field goal snapper got hurt, so I went in. Hit the kicker in the chest on a field goal.

    Not relevant to this argument, but it was fun stuff.

    That is why I suggested Coco might be a possibility. He has the size and he played OL in high school.

    I'm getting concerned that the new offense's weakness isn't incorporating a TE, or WRs that can run routes, or RBs with breakaway speed, or QBs that can accurately make reads and throw the ball, but all based on a center that can snap the ball accurately and still block his man. Which 5 star centers are we recruiting?

    We have no 2020 center commits. We have two offers to centers, both 3 stars per 247. One of those two is from Buford and currently commited to Bama. The other one is from Texas and we are in his top 5.
