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
But is it not the QB's responsibility to designate the snap count?
Here ya go. Henning had them go on one every play. http://www.thehuddle...ID=5&portID=541
--The snap count was "one" for every Carolina Panthers offensive play last season under former offensive coordinator Dan Henning, according to veteran guard Mike Wahle.
That will change this year as offensive coordinator Jeff Davidson takes over and continues to mix things up and challenge his offensive players to think and react.
"Our snap count isn't on one every play anymore, so guys aren't just going to just tee off on the same snap count over and over again," said Wahle, who seemed very pleased with the change in philosophy.
Although that may seem like a minor detail, Wahle believes it help keep the defense a little more back on its heels.
"You can minimalize that as much as you want but that's a big deal for offensive linemen," Wahle said. "Keeping those guys guessing and the fact that we're not coming off with the same drive block every time helps."
When asked why Henning decided to go on one for the snap count, Wahle let that question pass, saying, "I'm not going to go into that. That was the way it was and there's nothing you can do about it."
Wahle admitted Davidson's offense is more complex as a whole than Henning's, but said it's nothing the players can't handle.
"The complexity is only going to help us," Wahle said. "It takes a little more time in your playbook, but it's only going to help us."
