Niswanger's Snaps

From KC Star:

“Chiefs coach Todd Haley said the team has studied center Rudy Niswanger’s bad snaps from last weekend’s 43-14 loss at San Diego, and Niswanger will spend this week trying to correct those mistakes.

Niswanger delivered two errant snaps to quarterback Matt Cassel, who was in the shotgun formation.

Haley indicated that there was a “common denominator” in Niswanger’s poor snaps, but he wouldn’t reveal the specific problem. Niswanger said he didn’t know what caused the problems, but both he and his coach said the episode was enough to elicit extra work to prevent future mistakes.

“You don’t let anything go,” Haley said. “We’re working on it. We worked on it today, and we’ll work on it throughout the week and make sure that there isn’t any kind of bigger issue, which I don’t think there will be.”

Niswanger said he thought it was a technique breakdown that “crept in” and became a noticeable problem.

“I think it was surprising to all of us,” he said. “It’s something that can’t happen and shouldn’t happen, and unfortunately it did.

“It’s like anything. You get back on the field and try to correct it and work on the things that cause that problem. You go back to doing the basics.”

I say the team should work on his run blocking, pass blocking, scheme protection, resume, med school application, unemployment benefits, ah hell you get the idea. What do you think?
