Seahawks Snap Counts: 2009 Game 6

Brian McIntyre of NorthwestFootball.net reviews how the Seattle Seahawks used their personnel on Sunday. This week's edition features the debut of Sunday's Offensive MVP, punter Jon Ryan (left).

Seahawks Snap Counts

A look at the number of offensive and defensive snaps each Seattle Seahawks player logged during their 27-3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. These snap counts do not include special teams plays, as broadcast limitations make charting those plays difficult. Plays nullified by penalty are not counted, either.

Curry's 83.1% playing time percentage was a season-low. For the first time since Leroy Hill went down 10 plays into the season, the Seahawks removed the fourth overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft for an extra defensive back when the Cardinals brought in fourth receiver, namely former Seahawk Jerheme Urban. The 2008 Seahawks took a similar approach when they faced Kurt Warner and the Arizona Cardinals last November at Qwest Field, when they removed Hill when Cardinals' then-offensive coordinator Todd Haley went with 4 or 5 receivers. Hill's 42 snaps (of 70 total plays by Arizona that day) was his lowest of the season in a game in which he was healthy. (Hill's '08 season ended 13 plays into the Dallas game two weeks later.)
