Browns head coach says if he has to he will coach his center how to snap a ball

Browns coach is not very happy with Cam Erving’s snapping skills

Hue Jackson was not very happy with his starting center Cam Erving, who snapped a ball way over Robert Griffin III’s head.  The play actually took the life out of the Browns and it cost them.  After the game, Jackson spoke about the snap and said if he has to take his jacket off and go down there himself, his center will learn how to do it correctly.

“I don’t know if you get too many chances to keep snapping it over the quarterback’s head,” Jackson said Monday, via “I think he knows that. It is unfortunate. It is something that can’t happen in a game. It is embarrassing, and it is not right. But at the same time, I think for the negative that Cam did, he is doing some good things, too. Early in the game, for the most part, our protection was flawless.

He added: “Cam is working at it, I’m sure. We are going to do everything we can to help fix that. I don’t want to coach the center and the quarterback snap, but if I have to take my jacket off and go down there and start coaching it, then I am going to.”

Remember the Browns let Alex Mack their Pro Bowl center walk, so this is just considered growing pains in my opinion. I think it will work out in the long run, but you have to love the way Jackson coaches.
