NY Jets @ SD Chargers: Defensive Snap Counts

New, comments

The Jets had a 30 burger planted on them Sunday, who played and how often?

Donald Miralle

Doing these kind of articles are a lot easier after we've won, less than 24 hours after that loss, you don't even want to think football. The Jets were poor on Sunday in all facets of the game, the red-zone defence continued to struggle and it's likely we're going to see a lot more passing touchdowns on us this season.

Player Position Snaps Percentage of Defensive Plays
Dawan Landry Safety 74 100%
Dee Milliner Cornerback 72 97%
Demario Davis Linebacker 70 95%
David Harris Linebacker 68 92%
Muhammad Wilkerson Defensive End 67 91%
Calvin Pryor Safety 63 85%
Quinton Coples Outside Linebacker 56 76%
Phillip Adams Cornerback 52 70%
Calvin Pace Linebacker 51 69%
Sheldon Richardson Defensive End 50 68%
Damon Harrison Nose Tackle 34 46%
Leger Douzable Defensive End 33 45%
Kyle WIlson Cornerback 32 43%
Jason Babin Outside Linebacker 25 34%
Antonio Allen Safety/cornerback 24 32%
Darrin Walls Cornerback 21 28%
Trevor Reilly Outside Linebacker 9 12%
IK Enemkpali Outside Linebacker 6 8%
Nick Bellore Linebacker 5 7%
Jaiqwuan Jarrett Safety 2 3%

Milliner looked OK, but he wasn't really targeted because the Chargers were moving the ball easily against the other corners. I was surprised that Jarrett didn't get more time, I thought he played well against the Lions. It's tough for corners to go from playing 100% of their team snaps to playing around 30%. However of course Walls got injured and Allen was moved back to his safety position, although he gave up two touchdowns there so was probably better suited to playing outside.

In all the team were poor all around. Pryor's tackling is questionable and the angles he takes to the ball are horrible. Davis and Harris inside were horrible in run defense and on passing downs. However what do you do? We just don't have the talent in the secondary to compete with these multi-threat offensive passing attacks.

David Harris was injured and will have an MRI, Walls looked to suffer a bad knee injury and we'll have to wait and see how serious that is.
