    Titans punter Brett Kern was able to display a sense of humor about his missed snap on Sunday, joking with his Twitter followers that night.

    “I was saying that if `Butterfinger’ called, I could get a new commercial deal,” Kern said. “Thankfully we were able to win, so it’s kind of a joking matter now.”

    Kern took his eye off a second-quarter punt snap and saw the ball slip through his hands, allowing San Diego possession at the Titans’ 30-yard line. Fortunately for the Titans, they held the Chargers to a field goal on that possession.

    Kern, who’s sure-handed enough that he is Rob Bironas’ holder on field-goal attempts, was having a hard time remembering the last time he blew a snap.

    “I think it was like flag football in gym class in the eighth grade,” Kern said. “It never happened in college or in my six years in the (NFL) … It’s just one of those things that no matter how many countless field-goal snaps and punt snaps I’ve taken, you still have to keep your eye on the ball.”

    I am glad Kern can laugh about it, I can't. That should never happen. EVER. Those two guys, the center and the kicker, get paid TONS of money just to do that one play. How do you F that up so bad? Now, if Kern had actually made something happen that was not a complete failure, the I can see laughing about it. But he failed miserably. Sorry, no laughing here.
