Week Eleven marked the NFL regular season debut of Colin Holba in Jacksonville and the return of client Brett Goode to Green Bay. In addition, it was a highly unusual week since no snapper recorded a tackle in punt coverage. I have been tracking snapper tackles in punt coverage since the start of Longsnap.com in 2000 and I do not recall a week in which no tackles occurred by a snapper.
The Saints have added veteran special teams coach Mike Westhoff to the existing special teams staff to assist Brad Banta and his assistant Kevin O’Dea.
On the college snapping front, two snappers accepted invites to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. Jake Wirsching from Bemidji State and Andy Rieman from Mount Union will be the snappers. They join Tanner Carew of Oregon, who will snap in the Senior Bowl, as the snappers who have received all-star bids.
