Seahawks Snap Counts: 2009 Game 4

Posted Oct 5, 2009


Brian McIntyre of NorthwestFootball.net reviews how the Seahawks used their personnel in their 34-17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4 of the 2009 NFL season.

Seahawks Snap Counts

A look at the number of offensive and defensive snaps each Seattle Seahawks player logged during the 34-17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. These snap counts do not include special teams plays, as broadcast limitations make charting those plays difficult.

OFFENSE

Offensive Personnel Groupings

To combat the Colts’ pass-rush, the Seahawks unveiled a running back-less personnel grouping that featured three wide receivers and two tight ends. Seattle passed each time this grouping was used, with Wallace completing 6-of-9 passes for 67 yards. Wallace was sacked once, even though Seattle kept seven guys in to block four Colts’ rushers.

A natural explanation for this new personnel grouping would be that they wanted to protect Brandon Frye, but both tight ends appeared on Frye’s side on just two occasions, including the play Wallace was sacked. Seattle had a standard two-tight end look (tight end on each end of line) three times, had both tight ends on the right-side of the offensive line three times, and had John Owens split wide twice from this personnel grouping.
