The Lyrics

Even the things we never think about is now in question. When your long snapper is out, then realize how important this specialized skill is.
All the chips are down
Team in disarray
No one really knows
What is this guy's name

I duly perform
Every game, every day

I have been long snapping
From 'bout 15 yards away

We are on a search
To find my backup today
Well, man, since I hurt my knees
I thought a C's [center] in my place

I thought they've practiced this before
I guess it's harder than they say

I can't be long snapping
From 15 yards away

All the chips are down
Team in disarray
No one really knows
What is this guy's name

If I was never hurt
No one cared anyways

Who is my replacement
In such an urgent state
In such an urgent state
On such a scary day

I know what you're referring to even without following the link. I'm glad that I played rivers and not big ben on my fantasy team last week, but I don't have that option this time with the chargers on a bye.

Well, long snappers are more problematic for people like the punters and kickers. It shouldn't matter for QB's. I thought it would, but not really.

Nice parody! It reminds me of "The Lonesome Kicker"

Adam Sandler? Wow, thank you! Too bad, I've already done "Shane Lechler" that deals with punters and kickers.
