Snap Count Numbers For Your New York Jets Defense

New, comments

Following on from the offensive side of the ball, lets flip the attention over to the defensive side of the ball. With a lot more moving parts and a few players vying for time, I find this one much more interesting to look at. So lets take a look at the numbers first and then can get down to the conclusions to be taken away:

100% 63/63 David Harris, Yeremiah Bell, Laron Landry Defense
95 % 60/63 Calvin Pace Defense
94% 59/63 Antonio Cromartie Defense
86% 54/63 Kyle Wilson, Bart Scott Defense
84% 53/63 Muhammed Wilkerson Defense
79% 50/63 Darrelle Revis Defense
51% 32/63 Quinton Coples Defense
49% 31/63 Kenrick Ellis Defense
41% 26/63 Mike DeVito Defense
25% 16/63 Aaron Maybin, Garrett McIntyre, Marcus Dixon Defense
16% 10/63 Josh Mauga Defense
14% 9/63 Isaiah Trufant, Ellis Lankster, Bryan Thomas Defense

Demario Davis, Nick Bellore, Josh Bush saw 0% of defensive snaps. Bryan Thomas is extremely low there, but he was struggling with an injury this week. I'm a little surprised to see Trufant only in on 9% of the plays as it seemed as though he was a lot more active. Can we expect Landry (coming back from injury) and Bell (getting up there in age) to play 100% of the snaps? we can't but Eric Smith is a couple of weeks away from full fitness yet I believe. Calvin put in a good shift, and I thought he had a decent game. Revis obviously left the game in the 4th with an injury. I thought Coples was involved on more than 50% of the plays, but this shows why our eyes can be deceptive.

What are your thoughts?
