Chicago Bears @ NY Jets Defensive Snap Counts

We're going to look at who played on the defensive side of the football and how much.

I get the impression that we are just a couple of players away from having an elite defensive unit. Unfortunately the players we need all reside in our secondary and if the secondary is a weak link, it makes it harder for the front 7. We simply have to address that position in the off-season and then we could see this unit come together to be something very special.

However lets dive straight in to our defensive snap counts:

Player Position Snap Counts Percentage of Plays
Dawan Landry SS 66 100%
Darrin Walls CB 66 100%
Antonio Allen CB 66 100%
David Harris LD 66 100%
Calvin Pryor FS 65 98%
Demario Davis LB 64 97%
Muhammad Wilkerson DE 64 97%
Sheldon Richardson DE 58 88%
Calvin Pace OLB 57 86%
Quinton Coples OLB 54 82%
Damon Harrison NT 32 48%
Kyle Wilson CB 21 32%
Kenrick Ellis NT 13 20%
Jason Babin OLB 12 18%
Legar Douzable DE 10 15%
Trevor Reilly OLB 5 8%
Phillip Adams CB 4 6%
Jaiquawn Jarrett FS 3 5%

Really not a great deal to notice here. Obviously the slot corner plays as much as the offensive unit sets up, but 32% from a former first round selection. I think we can agree now that perhaps that wasn't the best selection. Quinton Coples rose from 70% against the Packers to 82% here and he looks as though he's becoming more comfortable at the position.

Darrin Walls and Antonio Allen having to play 100% of the snaps is never a good thing.
