Quarterly playing-time report: Offense


We're at the three-quarter mark of the season, so here's a breakdown of the offensive snap counts for the third quarter of the season, games nine to 12 (based on 264 snaps):


Mark Sanchez -- 221 snaps/84 percent

Greg McElroy --32 snaps/12 percent

Tim Tebow -- 11 snaps/4 percent

Analysis: Stunning. Who could've imagined that McElroy would have more playing time than Tebow? All told, Tebow has played only 66 snaps on offense.


Shonn Greene -- 130 snaps/49 percent

Bilal Powell -- 108 snaps/41 percent

Lex Hilliard -- 88 snaps/33 percent

Joe McKnight -- 14 snaps/5 percent

Kahlil Bell -- 3 snaps/1 percent

Analysis: They've shifted to a committee approach in recent weeks, creating more opportunities for Powell. Greene's days as the "bell cow" (Rex Ryan's term) appear over.


Stephen Hill -- 150 snaps/57 percent

Jeremy Kerley -- 140 snaps/53 percent

Chaz Schilens -- 131 snaps/50 percent

Clyde Gates -- 73 snaps/39 percent

Antonio Cromartie -- 8 snaps/3 percent

Jordan White -- 1 snap/1 percent

Analysis: Well, look at the bright side: Hill is getting a lot of on-the-job training. That will serve him well in the future. For now, his lack of experience hurts the team.


Dustin Keller -- 176 snaps/67 percent

Jeff Cumberland -- 135 snaps/51 percent

Konrad Reuland -- 75 snaps/28 percent

Jason Smith -- 57 snaps/22 percent

Analysis: Cumberland has received a ton of playing time, although he doesn't have much production to show for it. Keller, hampered by injuries, wishes he could take a mulligan (not Matthew Mulligan).


D'Brickashaw Ferguson -- 264 snaps/100 percent

Austin Howard -- 264 snaps/100 percent

Nick Mangold -- 264 snaps/100 percent

Brandon Moore -- 253 snaps/96 percent

Matt Slauson -- 220 snaps/83 percent

Vladimir Ducasse -- 55 snaps/21 percent

Analysis: The Jets have been really lucky here in terms of injuries. The left-guard platoon has made recent headlines (here's to you, coach Guges), but it's not like Ducasse is seeing a whole lot of time.
