Yeah, but one "oh crap" will ruin 1,000 atta boys. Have to be perfect every time.

I'm a former long snapper, so I will stand up for the brotherhood :D

Sure, but if you're getting $1.3m for 8 snaps per game I expect every one of those to be perfect.

The "Who cares?" comment assumes that to be the case.

I expect Brewer will stick due to his long relationship with Rodgers but Shimko has never had a bad snap and costs $400k less. I'd roll with him personally.

They can always cut Brewer and bring him back if Shimko craps the bed. Ain't nobody picking up a long snapper after final cut day unless someone breaks a leg.

For your information, LP Ladouceur, from Montreal, played 253 consecutive games for the Cowboys between 2005 and 2020 and didn't miss a snap.

It was still like 8 snaps a game though?
