    They better. I never hear his name during a game, which is a good thing.

    Does anyone really remember the hell that was the LS position prior to Ladouceur?

    John freakin Condo?


    He did get better for the raiders, ironically it was his injury that killed the raiders vs san diego this year

    I don't take LP for granted. Just think, he was out of work when the Cowboys signed him. It's hard to believe he didn't stick with some other team with a skill like that. Everybody can't do it.

    Just goes to show you that other team's have trouble figuring out the future of players, too.

    Would be nice if you could just look at a guy and know, but that's not the way it is (otherwise drafting would be easy). Often teams have to just get lucky on the Tom Bradys and Tony Romos and on and on it goes.

    Ladouceur was another lucky find for Dallas, and I'll certainly take more of them because this team needs it.

    Dallas absolutely hit the long snapping jackpot with this guy.

    I can't remember a poor snap....EVER.

    One of the most underrated guys on our 53 man roster.

    Great, or at least very good, special teamers are so important in this sport.

    LP's a great one!

    I was so pissed off a couple of years ago when Jerruh was trying to save a few pennies and tried to replace LP with a rookie. Just plain DUMB. LP is the kind of player you stick with to the end.

    We've seen first hand how bad special teams play can cost an entire game. It's good to see him (most likely) coming back.

    it has always amazed me that bottom of the roster players don't learn to deep snap and make themselves more valuable. they may never learn to be great but every team needs to have another guy on the roster who can do it so it's another reason to keep a guy on the roster. it's also the easiest money in football

    Perhaps it's not which is why guys just don't all of a sudden acquire it as a skill.

    You watch the Oakland game this year where they lost their LS? It was a complete joke watching the fill-in bowl the football back to the punter.

    Tons of centers have trouble snapping the ball to the QB in the shotgun. Add another 10 yards to it and maybe it's not all that easy.

    A staple. One of the few areas on the team that we have zero concerns about. That time between Hellestrae and Ladouceur was nerve-racking.
