New York Jets Salary Cap Page

Playing Time: Jets vs Seahawks

The Jets only ran 52 plays on offense this week, a season low. Its the fourth time this year they were in the 50's which is really knocking home just how ineffective the offense is as a whole. If you dont run plays you are not going to win the game. It is that simple and the Jets dont convert enough to keep their offense on the football field. In terms of participation Sanchez was actually removed more from the game than usual, playing in 87% of the snaps. Tebow was up to 15% and I felt the Jets used him more in a traditional role with Sanchez off the field and the Jets running plays not just sneaks. A sign of things to come? Who knows. Chaz Schilens saw his role drop with his snaps going to Clyde Gates on the day. Maybe the guy who should have given up his snaps was Stephen Hill who you didnt even know was playing he was so invisible. Hill played in 63% of the snaps, most of any wide receiver.

The coaching staff seemed to rely a bit more on their veterans this week with Bryan Thomas and Bart Scott playing in 68% and 50% of the snaps. Eric Smith also saw a season high 43% of the plays. Of course that meant something had to give and it was the younger players who saw their time diminished. Quinton Coples fell from 64% to just 42% while LB DeMario Davis went from 98% to just 29%. In my mind that in unacceptable when you consider the fact that the season is basically done, but at the same time it seemed to work for 3 quarters. The Jets did give Garret McIntyre and newcomer Ricky Sapp opportunities to do something as they logged 28% and 18% of the snaps respectively. Sapp seems to have replaced Aaron Maybin who was inactive for the game and seems to have co0mpletely fallen out of favor with the team.

Here are the percent of downs played by our offense and defense in week 8, plus the cumulative percent of snaps on the year. I also added a new feature which tracks the prior 4 weeks to give a better idea of the direction the playtime is headed for each player:
