Observations:

  • Yet another feather in Sewell’s cap, playing every single offensive snap. Kudos to Goff too, he only missed three Bridgewater kneeldowns against the Panthers
  • Gibbs got on average 5 more snaps per game than Montgomery, I expect that gap to increase next year
  • In terms of per game snap counts, Josh was the clear WR2 ahead of Jamo
  • Raymond is sneaky productive, he had 655 fewer snaps than Josh but caught 35 balls to Josh’s 52. He also had more receptions and more yards than Jamo off 229 fewer snaps. I can see why he was re-signed early
  • Sam LaPorta took on an enormous load for a rookie
  • Brock Wright is an important player and I think we missed his blocking against the 49ers
  • Mitchell and Green didn’t contribute much, but maybe they’re on a similar developmental path as Barnes and Melifonwu were in their early years
  • We were blessed with good health at the skill positions pretty much all season. Depth options like Green, Mitchell, Craig and DPJ didn’t see much action at all

Anthony Pittman LB 5 0.4% 20 0.3
Steven Gilmore CB 2 0.2% 3 0.7
Emmanuel Moseley CB 2 0.2% 1 2.0

Observations:

  • The players at the top of this list have nowhere near the same amount of talent as the players at the top of the list on offense. AG needs to be cut some slack when it comes to evaluating what he’s done with the defense
  • The fact that only two D-linemen, Hutch and McNeill, were worth 40+ snaps a game shows just how little quality there is in that room, none of the other guys could stand out and separate themselves from the rest. The usage of practice squad guys Irvin, Bohanna and Alualu is another indictment of the overall talent level on the D-line
  • On the other hand, the fact that they gave Levi the number of snaps that they did suggests they think he has a future, and I’m excited to see what he looks like once he’s put back on the muscle that he lost when he was injured
  • Overall, there’s a lot of guys who banked plenty of snaps who we won’t be sad to see off the team or in much smaller roles next season. The era of Okwaras and Harrises might be over
  • Campbell didn’t really shine much but he got a lot of snaps and will hopefully make a big jump going into next season
  • Martin and Gilmore were carried all season on the 53 and barely played. Like Mitchell and Green on offense, they could be candidates for Barnes and Melifonwu style breakouts next season

James Mitchell TE 141 26.4% 15 9.4
Jason Cabinda FB 138 25.8% 7 19.7

Observations:

  • Just the top 15 guys, anyone who’s not getting a lot of ST snaps is on the roster for another reason
  • It’s worth noting that JRM, Rodrigo, Pittman, Cabinda, Lucas and Dorsey are on the roster and active on game days mainly for their ST skills, which is worth bearing in mind when we’re all doing 53 man roster projections in August. Providing position depth is important, but proficiency on teams will win roster spots. Pittman is particularly notable because he saw all of 5 snaps on defense but nearly led the team on special teams snaps
  • Brock Wright is a real unsung hero on this team, he contributes a decent amount in two phases and yet you hardly ever see him
  • Gilmore got 12 ST snaps in his 3 games, so that’s not why he’s on the roster. He’s a very interesting player to follow in camp next year
  • Martin had 0 special teams snaps the three games he was active. Green had 93, or just over 7 per game

Great post @Slay

Appreciate the summary all in one thread.

The guys who played over 90 percent of the snaps over a 20 game season is extremely impressive. That’s so difficult to do.

Sewell not missing a single one. Amazing. By far my favorite player on the team.

GG was signed as depth and played over 90 percent. Well done to him.

Keep Goff healthy and we kick ass again next year. That’s really the key.

Good stuff. Thanks for posting.

And he’s super clutch when we need him.

Wonder if he woulda caught that pass @ Dallas for 2pt

Wonder if he woulda scored on Sunday when TE2 got stopped at 1

Jamo….

577 snaps…

22 games

only 36 touches.

22 yards per rushing attempt.

Great post, @Slay. Hard to get info - much appreciated.

OK, at the beginning of the season, who saw Jamo getting more snaps (in fewer games) than DMont? Big surprise for me.

Well to be fair, the DLine (especially the DT’s) gets rotated to keep them fresh. The OLIne does not.
