Week Twelve of the NFL season is complete and marked the return of veteran snapper Patrick Mannelly to the Bears. Mannelly missed two games due to injury and was replaced by Jeremy Cain.
Although there have been very few major snapping incidents this season, some snappers have struggled at times, including Beau Brinkley of the Titans. After the Titans win this weekend, in which Brinkley had some poor snaps, he went to Twitter to take full responsibility and to do better. Attached to his post-game tweet was the note attached in full below which should serve as a great lesson to all snappers regarding to the ups and downs of a life in football, especially in a position that demands excellence each and every time.
On the tackle front, Brinkley recorded a solo tackle in punt coverage, as did Brett Goode (Packers) and Danny Aiken (Patriots). Jon Weeks (Texans) added an assisted tackle. The NFL Long Snapper Chart after Week Twelve is below.
