Breaking Down the Carolina Panthers Snap Counts for Week 7

The Carolina Panthers continue to roll as they beat the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 27-16. Now that they are six games into the season, patterns are starting to develop in terms of playing time for the players.

OFFENSE

Name Position Snaps Percentage
Michael Oher OT 61 100%
Andrew Norwell OG 61 100%
Mike Remmers OT 61 100%
Cam Newton QB 61 100%
Greg Olsen TE 61 100%
Trai Turner OG 61 100%
Ryan Kalil C 61 100%
Philly Brown WR 51 84%
Ted Ginn WR 44 72%
Jonathan Stewart RB 43 70%
Ed Dickson TE 37 61%
Jerricho Cotchery WR 21 34%
Devin Funchess WR 18 30%
Mike Tolbert FB 17 28%

Brenton Bersin WR 2 3%
Joe Webb WR 1 2%
Cameron Artis-Payne RB 1 2%

Notes

  • One of the biggest changes this year for the Carolina Panthers has been the health of their offensive line. This group has been incredibly fortunate and after Ryan Kalil was the only player last week to miss any playing time, one snap to be exact, the Panthers had their starting five out on the field for every play. This is one of the reasons Cam Newton has been as successful as he has been because he has an offensive line he can trust to get the job done protecting him.
  • The Panthers continue to give Philly Brown a majority of the team's snaps and yet he continues to produce at the position. He has been on the field for more than half of the team's total offensive snaps but only has 11 receptions and 133 receiving yards on the season. To put these numbers in perspective, Brenton Bersin has seen only 55 snaps this year compared to Brown's 326 snaps but Bersin has five receptions for 67 yards.

DEFENSE

Thomas Davis LB 83 100%
Kurt Coleman FS 83 100%
Josh Norman CB 82 99%
Luke Kuechly LB 81 98%
Bene Benwikere CB 78 94%
Jared Allen DE 77 93%
Roman Harper SS 72 87%
Kawann Short DT 68 82%
Charles Tillman CB 61 73%
Kony Ealy DE 53 64%
Star Lotulelei DT 43 52%
Ryan Delaire DE 35 42%
Colin Jones FS 28 34%
Wes Horton DE 23 28%
Mario Addison DE 17 20%
Kyle Love DT 16 19%
Tre Boston FS 11 13%
A.J. Klein LB 2 2%

Notes

  • One position that has yet to be settled, and probably won't be for some time, is the rotation at defensive end. The reason is because the team continues to lose key players what seems to be on a weekly basis. After missing last week's game, Jared Allen returned and ended up playing 77 snaps against the Eagles. The team meanwhile lost defensive end Mario Addison to a shoulder injury that limited to him to only 17 snaps on Sunday night. 
  • The Panthers also had Luke Kuechly miss two snaps due to an injury but he was able to return quickly. They also had cornerback Josh Norman sit out a game after the NFL called down and pulled him from the game to evaluate him for a concussion.
  • For the second consecutive week in a row, Bene Benwikere played more snaps than Charles Tillman which could be by design as a way to keep the veterans healthy and rested as much as possible this season. The same goes for Roman Harper, who played 72 snaps and saw Tre Boston get some snaps in relief.
