He didn't, so it's not.

Used to be until it helped the Seahawks. Now they don't call it.

Didn't touch anyone. Still seems likely to be looked at by the competition committee for safety reasons, doesn't help us now.

EDIT. Did graze him, the story is you have to have leverage. I'm pretty sure this strategy gets looked at. Then again, gets people talking so maybe not.

What's the rule on blocking the snapper? 93 for the Broncos pushed Drescher down, allowing 31 to jump over him.

He jumped the center and his foot dragged his back plus the DT pulled the center down by the back of the helmet.

You can block the LS after the ball is snapped. You can't line up anyone head up on the snapper though.

It was a legal play.................I do think the return man stepped out of bounds though!!............:aargh:

Apparently you can jump the center when the center is being held to the turf by a DT

It's easier when their lineman holds our snapper down by the collar:

If this is legal, which I don't really know if it is or not, why is not every team doing it? Just have your inside guys on all kicks just jump on the center's back.
