Nelson admitted he shouldn’t have snapped the ball at all. When he tried to pull it back, it was too late and the ball skipped across the ground to a surprised Rocca.
“No. Believe me, that was a shock to me, too,” said Nelson. “I was just caught in the middle of a snap. I didn’t want to snap it and at the same time I wanted to snap it…Next time I’ll know if I hear something that I wasn’t sure about, I’ll just stop and if we take the penalty, we take the penalty. Maybe they’ll even jump offsides.”
