Seahawks Snap Counts: 2009 Preseason Week Two

Brian McIntyre of NorthwestFootball.net reviews how the Seattle Seahawks have used their personnel through the first two games of the 2009 preseason.

Offensive Personnel Groupings

These groupings refer to personnel, not formation. If Owen Schmitt lined up as a wide receiver, or as an H-Back, he's counted as a "RB" because that's the position he plays. If John Carlson lined up as a running back, he's counted as a "TE", because that's the position he plays.

"Do It With Four"

After blitzing on 13 of 53 pass attempts against the Chargers in Week One, the Seahawks sent 5+ rushers on just 7 of Denver's 41 pass attempts, six of which coming in the first half against Kyle Orton, who went 5-of-6 for 69 yards and a touchdown against those blitzes. The lone second-half blitz, a zone blitz with Baraka Atkins dropping to coverage and David Hawthorne and Will Herring rushing the passer, resulted in a sack, but Atkins was called for holding.
