Season playing time breakdown: Offense
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- In 16 regular-season games plus the NFC wild-card playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers, the Green Bay Packers were on the field for 1,185 offensive snaps, according to playing time totals kept by the NFL.
Only one player took them all.
Josh Sitton played every snap at his new position, left guard, on the way to the best season of his six-year pro career. Sitton made the switch from right guard and was a second-team All-Pro selection.
A total of 30 players took at least one snap on offense (including a pair of defensive linemen -- Mike Daniels and B.J. Raji). In 2012, the Packers used 29 players on offense.
Six players -- Sitton, right guard T.J. Lang, left tackle David Bakhtiari, center Evan Dietrich-Smith, receiver Jordy Nelson and tight end Andrew Quarless -- played on offense in every game.
Here are the total snap counts on offense with playing-time percentages in parenthesis (the defense and special teams breakdowns are coming):
- Josh Sitton 1,185 (100 percent)
- David Bakthtiari 1,171 (98.8 percent)
- T.J. Lang 1,156 (97.6 percent)
- Evan Dietrich-Smith 1,118 (94.3 percent)
- Don Barclay 1,027 (86.7 percent)
- Marshall Newhouse 256 (21.6 percent)
- Lane Taylor 14 (1.2 percent)
- Derek Sherrod 6 (0.5 percent)
