Steelers Offensive And Defensive Snap Counts From Week 2 – Bengals


Below are the snaps counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday night loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Surprisingly, the Steelers only played Will Johnson on seven snaps and Kelvin Beachum only saw two snaps as a second tight end. Markus Wheaton saw the field for just five plays but that will change starting next week.

Defensively, Vince Williams saw the lion's share of the work with Larry Foote now gone for the season. Shamarko Thomas saw 28 snaps on defense in sub packages while Robert Golden played 19 snaps in the dime defense.

About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • steeltown

    Ok, im not sure if the scheme or the packages or even the game dictated the outcome of a few players snap counts, but damn we need to get Will Johnson, Beachum and Wheaton on the field MORE

  • dgh57

    The OL played every snap, but look at the 82 snaps the Defense took! Our Defense was out there way to much and the team stat sheet reflects that.

    TOS: 35:34 to 24:26 in their favor!

  • dgh57

    I would like to know why Wheaton and his speed wasn’t used on that end around play instead of Cotchery!

  • Guest

    Only 7 snaps for Will Johnson. Is Johnson healthy or does Haley just love 11 personnel?

  • schlong

    This staff has just baffled me the first two games. I can’t tell if its a loyalty thing, stubbornness, or experience vs. inexperience, but we need to play guys like Wheaton, Jones and Johnson. I like Cotchery but he’s not going to make any splash plays. Redman is a plodder, Jones at least showed some burst last night. I don’t really get it. Time for Tomlin to adjust. We’re staring 0-3 right in the face with a good Bears team coming to town.

  • Christopher Wilkes

    Yeah, pretty disappointed in Johnson being out there for only 7 snaps. I’d rather have him out there then Paulson who was on the field all but 2 plays! I just don’t understand what the deal is with this offense anymore, and I’m starting to think their problems are just as much the coaches fault as they are the players.

  • Everything Steelers

    I would like to see Moye more…He was much bigger then the corner…I could see him being used even in short yardage…go out for a 2-3 yard curl and use his big frame to shield the small defender…

  • steeltown

    Indeed

  • steeltown

    Felix Jones should be the starter, with Dwyer backing up till Le’Veon returns

    I respect Redman for his work ethic, but between his injury issues, his fumble issues and his ineffectiveness he really has no business being the starter

  • steeltown

    Too many 3 and outs.. we are not converting 3rd downs this year, its frustrating because in the 4th Qtr when the game is almost over only then does our Offense start producing

  • sean mcmartin

    thats because the defense scheme changes towards the end of the game, that’s usually when the leading team will back off and give the short completions instead of the big play..
    garbage time

  • dgh57

    Yes I know, we are 7 of 25 converting third downs in 2 games. Can’t win that way!

  • Marcus

    So Vince Williams played 42 snaps and K. Wilson played 21?? Who is the starter again?

  • Bilgewater D

    Wilson got pulled because he sucks as a starting ILB. He’s a special team guy only.

  • Marcus

    Yea, I agree. It’s not an ideal situation obviously, but at least Williams will get some playing experience.
