Seahawks Snap Counts: 2009 Game 11

Brian McIntyre of NorthwestFootball.net takes a look at how the Seattle Seahawks used their personnel during Sunday's 27-17 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

Seahawks Snap Counts

A look at the number of offensive and defensive snaps each Seattle Seahawks player logged during yesterday's 27-17 win over the St. Louis Rams. 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.

For the first time since Week 4, the Seahawks used a 3-wide receiver, 2-tight end on a 3rd-and-8 play from their own 22-yard line in the 2nd quarter. The play was a screen pass to Deion Branch, which gained 5 yards.

The Seahawks used backup offensive tackle Damien McIntosh as part of a jumbo offensive line on two occasions. He's counted as a tight end in "U" personnel…Wide receiver Ben Obomanu got on the field for three offensive plays, his most extensive action with the offense since Week 6. All three of Obomanu's plays were running plays, including Justin Forsett's 3-yard touchdown in the first quarter, which was run out of "Zebra" personnel.

The Rams only used four wide receivers on 11 plays, yet the Seahawks went with "Dime" personnel 28 times. When in "Dime", with David Hawthorne at middle linebacker, Marcus Trufant, Josh Wilson, Kelly Jennings, and Jordan Babineaux at cornerback, and Lawyer Milloy and Deon Grant at safety.

Against this "Dime" personnel, Rams' quarterback Kyle Boller was 16-of-23 for 175 yards. He was sacked once (Cory Redding's sack for no gain or loss) and scrambled for 16 yards, which set up Steven Jackson's one-yard run. Wilson's 65-yard interception for a touchdown came when the ‘Hawks were in "Dime".

Much was made last week about Aaron Curry's playing time. While he obviously wasn't part of "Dime" packages, the Seahawks did use him a bit more in nickel packages, beginning late in the 2nd quarter when Curry and Leroy Hill appeared to alternate as the second linebacker in "Nickel" personnel. On the five "Nickel" plays Curry was in on, Boller was 2-of-4 for 14 yards. Curry was sent after Boller twice, forcing an early throw that fell incomplete. He was also the closest defender in coverage on another incompletion on third down, though he was slow to pick up that receiver and a better throw would've resulted in a first down.
