The Green Bay Packers will be the first opposing team to play in the Vikings new stadium and the anticipation of loud crowd noise has the team preparing to deal with it.
When the noise goes up, team have to go to silent snap counts, but sometimes if the communication isn’t right, it’s not much of a help.
“I think a lot of it is the tackles have to know when you’re going to snap it based off your body movement,” center JC Tretter said, via Packers News.
“So a lot of that just takes reps, and they have to trust the ball will be gone when it’s supposed to be gone because they’re going off your body movement. It’s just consistency, it’s just reps. Getting used to it.”
“Obviously teams do it a bunch of different ways,” Tretter said. “You have the guard tap, you have the guard flash, you have the (quarterback) leg kick. There’s just a bunch of different ways to do it.”
