Steelers Offensive And Defensive Snap Counts From Week 7 – Ravens

Below are the snaps counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday win over the Baltimore Ravens along with some observations

Mike Adams played 20 snaps with the majority of coming as an end of the line tight end. He did fill in for Guy Whimper for a few plays at right tackle when he was dinged. Adams use also cut into the snaps of Emmanuel Sanders, who played just 35 snaps. Jonathan Dwyer only played two snaps on offense but made the most of both of them.

How much sub package did the defense play? Well. nose tackle Steve McLendon only saw 17 snaps of playing time and inside linebacker Vince Williams played just 18 snaps, so that should give you a good idea.

    I like the idea of getting C.Allen and S.Thomas on the field more in these packages.. we may want to consider a similar type of package against New England in a couple weeks now that Gronkowski is back, Edelman is playing a bigger role and Brady is starting to get comfortable with his young WRs

  • dgh57

    I like the fact Heyward got more than double the snaps: 55 snaps vs Hood 23 snaps!

  • Jeff

    I was surprised to see pretty low snap counts for Vince Williams and McClendon.. It felt like they were in their more than that..

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Very interesting on both sides of the ball. Power football from the offensive side and looks like nickel and dime packages mostly from the defense. It is almost like we didn’t respect the Ravens rush offense.

  • John Hinton

    And with good reason considering how poorly they have run the ball so far this year. On the other side of the ball, it was good to see production out of our running game for four quarters.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I cannot remember having running success like that against a Ravens team. It was good to see.

  • Lamarr56

    When Shamarko is on. The field, is he playing safety or corner? A couple of weeks ago, I heard a report saying he would take snaps from Clark, but that’s obviously not happening. I have like what I have seen from him so far, especially on special teams

  • Fire.Mike.Tomlin

    Really? He has missed a lot of ST tackles by crashing down on the returner at way too steep of an angle.
    I don’t know what you’d call his position this week, it seemed like they were moving him and Polamalu all over the field in various roles.

  • steeltown

    He’s been playing a lot of nickel and dime Defense, basically playing CB, but its hard to gauge exactly and its also hard to label his position other than to say he’s in on nickel and dime defense.

    I like when I see Polamalu talking his ear off on the sideline and directing him around the secondary pre-snap, he’s gaining invaluable information from an NFL great

  • srdan

    I agree. He is quietly becoming a stud. May be our best defensive lineman.

    Shhhhhh, don’t tell the rest of the league, but the Steelers got young in a hurry again!

  • T R

    And to think not long ago if we would thought that Guy Whimper would have gotta 47 snaps on offense.. That was the demise of the Pittsburgh Steelers… LOL Wow how things change… a victory over the Ravens with Guy whimper having 47 snaps… Where do we go from here ….?

  • dgh57

    Looks like V. Williams & McLendon only played when they were in their base defense which didn’t get used that much.

  • Lamarr56

    Dave, is there a reason you stopped doing the offensive line breakdowns every week. Not to be pushy, but I really loved those and I think they helped me really examine how each specific lineman does. I realize it might take a lot of time and effort to complete the breakdown though.
