Playing-time analysis: Offense

By Rich Cimini

A breakdown of the offensive snaps (based on a total of 75):

QUARTERBACK

Mark Sanchez -- 74 snaps/99 percent

Tim Tebow -- 1 snap/1 percent

RUNNING BACK

Bilal Powell -- 43 snaps/57 percent

Lex Hilliard -- 31 snaps/41 percent

Shonn Greene -- 29 snaps/39 percent

Joe McKnight -- 1 snap/1 percent

TIGHT END

Jeff Cumberland -- 56 snaps/75 percent

Konrad Reuland -- 31 snaps/41 percent

Jason Smith (jumbo OT) -- 17 snaps/23 percent

Hayden Smith -- 3 snaps/4 percent

WIDE RECEIVER

Jeremy Kerley -- 57 snaps/76 percent

Braylon Edwards -- 57 snaps/76 percent

Jordan White -- 27 snaps/36 percent

Clyde Gates -- 23 snaps/31 percent

Analysis: This amounted to one final insult for Tebow ... Three of the four wide receivers weren't even on the opening-day roster. That tells you something ... White, a rookie, played a career-high in snaps because Gates suffered a possible concussion ... Greene carried the ball on 19 of his 29 snaps. A bit predictable? ... Hard to figure why McKnight doesn't get more chances.
