Snap Count Key?

44 posts in this topic

Similar deal: In the 03 Cowboy game, Buckner caught on to Quincy Carter tipping the snap count (something he did with his hands, if I remember right) and the Panthers D-Line used it against the Cowboys offense all game.

That I can believe...but no one will tell me a pro football team was going on one/two/first sound the whole time.

So you're trying to tell me a professional football team was going on the same snap count all the time?

Get real.

The story was reported after Henning's firing (Observer, I think). Whether it's true or not, I don't know. The Panthers are fairly tight-lipped and don't like to bad mouth anyone, even guys they've let go, so I doubt they'd confirm it.

Watching the way Henning ran the offense when he was here, I have to admit it sounds at least somewhat plausible.

The Cards definitely saw something about how Ryan snapped the ball to get a jump on. It wasn't all because of crowd noise. Several times the ends jumped offsides right as the ball was being snapped. They clearly weren't doing this because of crowd noise. They saw something.

However, my biggest beef was the defensive tackle lined up off sides on every single freaking play and not once did the refs call him on it.

I remember that as well.

I have read that AZ noticed Ryan leans back a little or something of that nature in anticipation of the snap.

And Parcells dumped Quincey Carter as fast as he could after that game. I remember that clearly. Jenkins & Buckner were called for offsides a couple of times because they were moving off the "give" so quickly.

If the Falcotton headed ninny mugginss fans are talking about it, Jake and Davidson are thinking about it. You can count on Jake changing things up.

Edit: :lol: I typed F-a-l-c-u-n-t-s and the filter changed it. :lol:

Oh no, I remember that, too. Still don't know if it's true, but I can't imagine a pro-level coach not having the mind to vary a snap count. It's simple and something done even at the middle school level. I was talking about the person who said that the Falcons were going on the same snap count because Ryan was a rookie. I don't buy for a minute that they were going on the same sound all game. I do buy, however, that they Cards may have seen something in film (like him leaning back as Pumpkin Eater says) or something of that nature.

If Henning was going on the same snap every down maybe that's why his butt was fired :D

But is it not the QB's responsibility to designate the snap count?

Jake is the most poised in the Playoffs. Don't worry about it.

the Cards benefited from playing against a rookie QB and the homefield crowd noise.....I'm sure the crowd noise made Ryan limited in what he could do at the line and the Cards locked onto something......game is in Carolina and Jake is a great big game QB.....we have other concerns imo, this isn't one.

Don't buy it.

Teams prepare for this sort of thing. Teams intentionally practice with simulated crowd noise in preparation for those things. It wasn't a shocker that the fans would be loud.
