Steelers Offensive And Defensive Snap Counts From Week 9 – Patriots

Below are the snaps counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday 55-31 loss to the New England Patriots along with some observations

Backup tight end Michael Palmer saw three snaps on offense and David Paulson saw zero. That certainly tells you what they think of Paulson right now.

Even though he was demoted, Jarvis Jones played 21 snaps. Judging by the snaps that Steve McLendon and Al Woods played, the Steelers used base nearly 40 times when you take away the goal-line plays.

Stevenson Sylvester saw his first playing time of the season on defense after Vince Williams left with a concussion.

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

    Why is Gay still starting over Allen? I haven’t got to watch any of the games on TV just streaming on the laptop which lags from time to time. Allen played great at the end of last year. Has he not shown any improvement this year? Also after the last two weeks, I think Thomas needs to start over Clark.

  • cencalsteeler

    Just a thought. Steelers hire Bicknell, jr., Richard Mann, and Danny Smith. Are these veteran coaches only instilling fundamentals? This geriatric coaching staff is missing the desire and effort that needs to go along with coaching. Maybe some young hires might inject some enthusiasm and heart into this team. An outburst from Haley at this point would be welcomed, but I fear even he is being lulled to sleep, too.

    I had high hopes W. Johnson would be a big part of the passing game even in there as a blocker on running plays!

  • Kenneth Wilt

    I really hope that Gilbert is out this week and Adams plays next to DeCastro. I want to see how that side of the line does with those 2 together. With our current record, I think we can bring in a LT at the draft, so I want to see Adams at the RT spot. Beachum, Velasco, Gilbert, Foster, and Whimper can all fight for the LG spot or for roster spots. If DeCastro/Adams works as well as I think it can, adding Pouncey next to them could be very good for us, it could potentially solve the right side of the line, leaving the Left as the only hole, but you hope an elite LT draft pick could fix some of that.

  • cencalsteeler

    I agree. Those third and short runs with Bell back there was bad. Yes, we got lucky on one, but the others coupled with the fourth and short, terrible. Dwyer or Johnson would have been a better option IMO.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I feel Mann has done great with the WR’s this year, it is hard to tell with Bicknell because of injuries but I do not like the job being done so far and Smith is still in the air. Some major lapses going on but overall not bad.

  • Steeler Wheeler

    I’m rooting for the right side to be DeCastro and Whimper. Seems like every loss for the last two years (and there have been many) has us pointing fingers at Adams and/or Gilbert. I don’t see practices nor do I break down 75 plays every week…so who knows if they look like they can improve from ‘scrub’ to ‘marginal starter’ status, but what I’ve seen from those two is ugly and Beachum is not the answer.
