Playing-time breakdown: Jets Week 12
By Rich Cimini
An analysis of the snap counts from Sunday's 19-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens:
OFFENSE (Based on 57 snaps)
Quarterback: Geno Smith 57.
Running back: Bilal Powell 42, Tommy Bohanon 17, Chris Ivory 12.
Wide receiver: Santonio Holmes 43, David Nelson 40, Greg Salas 39, Stephen Hill 26, Josh Cribbs 9.
Tight end: Jeff Cumberland 34, Kellen Winslow 19, Zach Sudfeld 4.
Offensive line: D'Brickashaw Ferguson 57, Brian Winters 57, Nick Mangold 57, Willie Colon 57, Austin Howard 57.
Offensive analysis: The coaches sent mixed messages on the plans for Hill. In the end, his playing time was significantly reduced even though he started the game, technically. He played only 46 percent of the snaps (fourth among the wide receivers) after averaging 77 percent in the first 10 games. Most of his snaps went to Salas, who played a season-high 68 percent. ... Ivory said he sprained an ankle on his first carry, which took a chunk out of his usual playing time. Powell ended up playing 74 percent, his highest ratio since Week 5. ... The coaches said Winslow's playing time would increase, and it did. He went from 19 percent to 33 percent.
DEFENSE (Based on 64 snaps)
Line: Muhammad Wilkerson 61, Sheldon Richardson 51, Damon Harrison 30, Leger Douzable 18, Kenrick Ellis 15.
Linebacker: David Harris 64, DeMario Davis 61, Quinton Coples 60, Calvin Pace 52, Jermaine Cunningham 1.
Secondary: Dawan Landry 64, Dee Milliner 63, Ed Reed 62, Antonio Cromartie 50, Kyle Wilson 22, Darrin Walls 13, Antonio Allen 12, Jaiquawn Jarrett 5.
Defensive analysis: In his second game as a Jet, Reed played a higher percentage (97) than his first game (88). Allen, the man he replaced, managed to get on the field for 19 percent of the snaps, heck of a lot more than last week (four percent). ... Cromartie re-injured his hip and was limited to a season-low 78 percent. As a result, Walls got back into the mix after spending two games in the witness-protection program. ... Cunningham made his Jets debut, but they played virtually the entire game with only four linebackers -- unusual.
