Week Four in Review

Week Four is complete and short snapping issues continue to plague veteran Brad St. Louis of the Bengals, as he had two poor snaps that led to a blocked field goal and extra point.  St. Louis did rebound and deliver a solid snap on the game-winner in overtime.  On the tackle front, Dave Binn of the Chargers had two solo tackles, while Jon Condo of the Raiders had a solo tackle and an assist.  Client Brett Goode (Packers), Don Muhlbach (Lions), Zak DeOssie (Giants) and Brian Jennings (49ers) each had one solo tackle.  The NFL Long Snappers chart is updated with the latest tackle figures.

While there have been no changes at the snapping position, some teams have begun to evaluate snappers in case of emergency.  Client Bryan Pittman, Nate Hodel and Ryan Neill are among the veteran free agent snappers with recent workouts.  Snappers who have had some injury issues this season include Jason Kyle (Saints), Joel Dreessen (Texans) and Pat Mannelly (Bears).  Each snapper has been healthy enough not to miss any game action.  The Saints were concerned about Kyle this week and announced that either linebacker Troy Evans or cornerback Chris Reis would serve as the snapper if Kyle could not go.
