LaRon Landry -- 35 snaps/60 percent

Eric Smith -- 30 snaps/52 percent

Antonio Allen -- 15 snaps/26 percent

Josh Bush -- 2 snaps/3 percent

Analysis: The story here is Landry. This was by far his lowest percentage of the season. He didn't start the game, sitting the first two plays. Very curious ... Bell, who missed only one snap in the first 15 games, sat for a total of eight. The coaches threw some crumbs to the younger players, such as Bush, Allen, Ellis, Harrison and Sapp ... Because Ellis Lankster was inactive, they had to play Walls a season-high 50 snaps -- hardly an ideal situation.
