Why does Cam have to start clapping if he wants the ball to be snapped faster, yet no other quarterback in the league seems to have this problem?

I think sometimes he is just trying to draw the defense offsides.

Because that is how he calls for the ball when he wants it, you hear Eli always shouting "Omaha!" "Omaha!" that means he wants the ball snapped now.

So you are saying it's a John Fox hard count. Wait Cam never played for Fox. Lame ass hard count.

That's my other question, does our offense even have a traditional snap count?

Everyone does it different.

I'm pretty sure Cam says white 80 hut or something, I guess thats the snap count.

LOL at haters always looking for something to critique about newton.

It's called a snap count. I'm sure he says on 8 or something and everyone listens for that 8th clap.

he's not the only one doing that by any means. it happens quite often, esp. at away games.

it doesn't help that he doesn't have his regular center there. it takes time for the center and QB to gel.

it's not the special snowflake of a situation that you'd think. it's pretty common.

You are trying so incredibly hard to defend all Cam criticisms that you are finding the in places they don't exist. The OP is criticizing the offense, which is popular here remember?

Take a break from the Huddle, get a little perspective

when in the shotgun formation Cam does not have control over the snap count. The center decides when he wants to snap the ball after Cam tells him he's ready with the leg lift or some other signal (he typically drops his right arm all the way down)l. The clapping is just left the center know he's running out of time and need to get the ball off quickly or get a delay of game.

most offences in the NFL you will see the guard looking back. When the guard see this signal he will tap the center who knows it's now okay to snap the ball
