The Leaping the Snapper Controversy Continues

About the Blog

The Patriots successful leap over Ravens snapper Morgan Cox to block a field goal attempt Monday night has brought the controversial play back into focus.  Earlier this season, the Broncos and Seahawks successfully executed similar leaps to block kicks.

Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post examined how the Patriots studied film and perfected the play and includes some revealing comments from Redskins snapper Nick Sundberg about how he defends against it.

Kilgore’s story does an excellent job of presenting both sides of this issue which he called “one of the most exciting plays in football.”
