Seahawks Snap Counts: 2009 Game 13

Brian McIntyre of NorthwestFootball.net reviews how the Seattle Seahawks used their personnel during Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Houston Texans

Seahawks Snap Counts

A look at how the Seahawks used their personnel during Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Houston Texans, as well as the number of offensive and defensive snaps each Seattle Seahawks player logged. 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.

Five of Wallace's six snaps came at quarterback. One was during a "Senecat" play, which was run out of "E" personnel, with Wallace flanked by Julius Jones and Justin Forsett. Wallace was also on the field with Matt Hasselbeck for a 1st-and-goal play at the Houston 7-yard line.

Wallace lined up alongside Hasselbeck in the backfield, with Justin Griffith on the other side, but for charting purposes, he's counted as a wide receiver as part of "Zebra" personnel because when Wallace is in the huddle with Hasselbeck, the opposing team views him as a receiver.

Deon Butler's 32 snaps were not a season-high. He logged 37 snaps in each of the first two games of the season, where Deion Branch was out. Most of Ben Obomanu's nine snaps came after both Nate Burleson (ankle) and T.J. Houshmandzadeh (head/shoulder) were injured.

26 of Justin Forsett's 33 snaps were in the second-half, with 5 of his 7 first-half snaps coming on third down plays. Forstt's 42-yard catch-and-run came on the first time offensive coordinator Greg Knapp called a screen pass on Sunday, which came on Seattle' 49th offensive play and 30th passing play of the game.

The Houston Texans, perhaps more than most teams, employ a lot of 2-TE sets, so Seattle's high-percentage of plays run out of it's base defense isn't very surprising, nor was it dictated by the lopsided score. 24 of the 39 plays from base personnel were in the 1st half.

Jamar Adams got in for one snap towards the end of the 1st half after Lawyer Milloy had his bell rung by Aaron Curry. Milloy would return in the 2nd half.

Will Herring replaced Leroy Hill at weak-side linebacker for a pair of snaps in the second quarter. Hill was shaken up after rushing the passer. The broadcast showed him lunge towards Matt Schaub, but it's unclear what, if anything, he injured on the play.

Lance Laury replaced Curry at strong-side linebacker for the game's final snap.

All of Cory Redding's snaps were at defensive tackle, with all but one snap played alongside Craig Terrill.

When Seattle sent additional pass-rushers after Schaub, he was 6-of-11 for 78 yards. When Seattle didn't send additional pass-rushers, Schaub was 23-of-28 for 295 yards, 2 touchdowns, and an interception.
