NY Jets @ Kansas City Chiefs: Defensive Snap Counts

We started Antonio Allen and Marcus Williams at the cornerback position yesterday, that's all that needs to be said.

We're going to be taking a look at the defensive side of the ball, who played and how often.

Player Position Snaps % of defensive snaps
Dawan Landry SS 58 100%
David Harris ILB 58 100%
Demario Davis ILB 58 100%
Muhammad WIlkerson DE 56 97%
Marcus Williams CB 56 97%
Sheldon Richardson DE 51 88%
Calvin Pace OLB 47 81%
Quinton Coples OLB 44 76%
Jaiquawn Jarrett FS 38 66%
Damon Harrison DT 32 55%
Antonio Allen CB 30 52%
Josh Thomas CB 28 48%
Calvin Pryor FS 19 33%
Kenrick Ellis NT 15 26%
Kyle WIlson CB 14 24%
Jason Babin OLB 14 24%
Legar Douzable DE 11 19%
Antwan Barnes OLB 1 14%
Trevor Reilly OLB 1 2%

This was just a really poor show from everyone. We didn't get any pressure, mainly because Alex Smith could just complete a pass in soft coverage whenever he wanted it. Antonio Allen was horrendous and was replaced by Josh Thomas. We got nothing from our outside linebackers and as John mentioned in his recap, our linebackers were poor in zone coverage.

Calvin Pryor continues to disappoint in his rookie season and Trevor Reilly has seen his snap count diminish thanks to the return of Antwan Barnes. We have a great defensive line to build around, but we may need 5-6 starts on this defense to get it back to a position we're happy with.

Leave your thoughts on the defensive game plan and peformance below.
