    We have a 2 year man and a rookie behind him. Kinda scary!We have been awfully lucky so far. Me i don't like the prospect of not having a decent backup avalable at the center pos. :-(

    Geez! I never thought of football as a sport with utility players.
    Thats what Maslowski was for quite some time before he won the starting job.
    THAT quarterback is NOT a Pro Bowl quarterback. Never was and never will be.

    Just a thought but if we use casey blocking up the middle.Won't he be a bit small for that scheme.He is fast and a hell of a pulling center. But at 6'2 285 thats a bit light moving 300 plus pound gaurds backwards all game
    The scheme, under Solari, isn't going to change.
    The difference is that Solari will be less creative, or "cute", than Al was.

    Did I miss something?I thought Chris Bober was our backup.Please,fill me in if something has changed there.If not then there really is no discussion here.Chris Bober was a starter for the Giants for a couple years.He was their starter in '02 when they went to the playoffs.He's even our starting longsnapper.If he winds up taking Welbourns job, he'll still be the backup center.
    I've never been impressed by Bober.

    He is a scrub, who started in NY by default.

    I'm hoping that this kid Niswanger can show physically, because he clearly has the intelligence required for the center position.

    It will be interesting to see; we'll need someone who can step up in the absence of...can't think of the guys name; from Pitt State.

    Kendall Gammon.

    But you're talking about long snappers now.

    Gammon is the best, but he's slow, so is a non factor in covering punts.

    Chiefs signed Adam Johnson to compete for the positin, but it's highly unlikely he can unseat Gammon.

    Chiefs will only carry one long snapper, and Jared Allen can handle the responsibilty in a pinch.

    The center position depth chart is Weiggman, Bober, and Niswanger.

    Thanks for the clearification; I forgot that Gammon was the long snapper only.
