NY Jets @ SD Chargers: Offensive Snap Counts

Who played for the Jets on offense during their embarrassing shut out in California.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Eric Decker was obviously out for this game which meant an increase in playing time for some other players. Unfortunately for them, they did very little to make the Jets believe they can survive without their star receiver. The Lions having players who can step up when Calvin Johnson is down, the lack of talent on this offence means that when Decker goes down, we have nothing!

Player Position Snaps % of Offensive Plays
D'Brickashaw Ferguson OT 57 100%
Nick Mangold C 57 100%
Brian Winters OG 57 100%
Breno Giacomini OT 57 100%
Willie Colon OG 52 91%
Jeff Cumberland TE 52 91%
Jeremy Kerley WR 52 91%
Greg Salas WR 43 75%
Michael Vick QB 34 60%
David Nelson WR 27 47%
Jace Amaro TE 27 47%
Geno Smith QB 23 40%
Chris Ivory RB 22 39%
T.J Graham WR 18 32%
Chris Johnson RB 18 32%
Bilal Powell RB 16 28%
John Connor FB 8 14%
Oday Aboushi OG 5 9%
Zach Zudfeld TE 2 4%

What can we gather from this? It was only with 7 minutes left in the 4th quarter that we took our first snap in the San Diego half, which is beyond ridiculous. Nobody stood out, the offensive line weren't blocking anyone, the receivers were not getting open, the tight ends continued to look lethargic and the Jets continued to rely too much on Cumberland and not enough on Amaro.

I don't really know what else I can say. Oday Aboushi got some snaps in favor of Colon, but not enough to form an opinion. Geno obviously got benched for Vick and then Vick looked as though he was Geno in disguise. Why Cumberland played 91% of the snaps is anyone's guess, he showed very little throughout and his blocking is just absolutely terrible. David Nelson was hobbled and played less than 50% of the offensive snaps.

It was just poor all around.
