The question proposed, and really the entire premise of the OP is a bit silly and misinformed. Like others have mentioned, this particular rule is in place for the safety of the long-snapper. These types of violations should absolutely be avoided if possible, if there is a legitimate risk of player injury. Sure, there's no guarantee the long-snapper would get injured in this case. Where do you draw the line with that? If a player suffers a concussion in the middle of a game, there's no guarantee he'll hurt himself any further by continuing to play. Should players with concussions be allowed back into a game if it would potentially mean the difference between a win and a loss?
It's not about preventing penalties (like the OP is phrased). It's about preventing injuries..simple as that. It's not like refs are out there telling a team if they have 12 men on the field or giving the QB a little nudge when there's 5 seconds left on the playclock to avoid a delay of game.
White struggling doesn't mean Norman is better....not in coverage. He isn't.
As much as it pains me. And it does to say this....at least Norman plays the run very well. So if White is gonna struggle at least Norman brings one thing to the table. Run support. But the pass plays will still be there.
All I know is the real issue next week is Rodgers is gonna have Cobb or Nelson in the slot and will throw 345 balls at Godfrey. Nothing we can do
