Holmes has increased role on offense

By Rich Cimini

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- An unofficial playing-time breakdown of the New York Jets' skill-position players:

WIDE RECEIVERS
Braylon Edwards -- 55/69 snaps
Jerricho Cotchery -- 54/69
Santonio Holmes -- 39/69
Brad Smith -- 7/69

RUNNING BACKS
LaDainian Tomlinson -- 52/69 snaps
Shonn Greene -- 15/69

FULLBACKS
Tony Richardson -- 24/69 snaps
John Conner -- 5/69

TIGHT ENDS
Dustin Keller -- 52/69 snaps
Ben Hartsock -- 16/69
Wayne Hunter (OT) -- 3/69

ANALYSIS: Holmes played in 57% of the offensive snaps, an increase of about 15% over his first two games. It came at the expense of Cotchery, Edwards and Keller, all of whom played slightly less than usual ... The Jets used their "20" personnel package on at least a half-dozen occasions -- two RBs, no TEs and three WRs. Prior to Sunday, they hadn't shown that much at all. The package included Tomlinson and Greene in the game at the same time.
