Giants and Eagles snap count notes from Week 5

Snap count data via Pro Football Focus.

Jake Ballard: Big, slow, and playing well.

– Chris Snee missed the last 8 snaps with a knee injury.  Apparently, his knee is OK. Jim Cordle filled in and didn’t look good.  Losing Snee for an extended period of time would be devastating.

– Jake Ballard (55 of 75 possible snaps) is clearly the starting TE over Travis Beckum (26).  Ballard has been a pleasant surprise for the Giants.  Back at Giants training camp (one of the first days of camp), there was a big, slow white guy with the number 85 who was getting a ton of reps.  I asked a couple beat reporters who he was. One shyly admitted he didn’t know, and the other suggested I get a roster sheet (in other words, he didn’t know either). But Ballard has played well.  He had 3 catches for 72 yards and a TD against the Seahawks, which is one less yard than Brent Celek has on the entire season.

– Brandon Jacobs didn’t play. In his absence, Danny Ware got 18 snaps.

– Osi Umenyiora’s snap count increased to 56 this week, and he had a big game.

– Mathias Kiwanuka left the game early with a groin injury after 40 snaps.

– Jacquian Williams likely got a few extra snaps in Kiwi’s absence, but regardless of Kiwi leaving early, Williams is now firmly entrenched as a regular in the Giants’ D.  He had 76 snaps.  Williams’ snap counts on the year so far – 16, 28, 43, 34, 76.  I think it’s pretty clear Perry Fewell likes him.

Finally.

– Brent Celek (56 of 63 snaps) continues to get almost all the snaps at TE, despite continually dropping passes and providing nothing in the way of production in the Eagles’ offense.  Clay Harbor got 9 snaps, mostly in 2TE sets.

– Ronnie Brown, one week after his goal line gaffe, saw a grand total of 1 snap.  Dion Lewis saw 4.

– Steve Smith continues to contribute nothing. He got on the field for 4 snaps.

– Jarrad Page (57 of 66 snaps) was finally benched.  It took the Eagles’ coaching staff 310 snaps of awfulness to see that Page doesn’t belong on the field.  I tried to think of an Eagles player that had a prominent role on the team that’s been worse during the Andy Reid era than Jarrad Page.  Came up with only one – Mike McMahon.  Kurt Coleman (9) got the remaining snaps.

– Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie saw his most action of the season, with 49 snaps.  He squandered a great opportunity to make a huge play Sunday by dropping an INT.

– Jason Babin played 55 of 66 snaps, and the rest went to the following: Darryl Tapp (38), Phillip Hunt (21), and Juqua Parker (18).  Tapp and Hunt were invisible, and Parker wishes he was.

  35. Great beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your web site, how can I subscribe for a blog web site? The account aided me a acceptable deal. I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright clear idea

  36. I have been cooking all my life. I was the oldest of 5 kids with a divorced mother, so she would have me make out the weekly menus for the family, do all the shopping and 90% of the cooking. When I graduated high school, I was determined to make it in the corporate world but I was always the one that everyone called when they were having a dinner, party or some occasion to plan or cook the food. I never really thought that what I was doing was catering. Anyway, after decades in the corporate world and this latest boss (who was beyond intolerable!) I made the statement that I would love to go back to school to learn how to cook professionally and open a restaurant.A fellow employee told me that Le Cordon Bleu had just come to Atlanta. We made an appointment the next week. Once I stepped in those doors, sat thru the presentation and took a tour, I knew I was meant to be there. I enrolled that night. After having several panic attacks about going back to school after all this time when I should have done it earlier, I found that i loved it.

  43. Though I don\’t agree with you in details, your post is insightful

  44. Brian says:

    I would say Page has only been a little worse than Ernie Sims. Its certainly close though.

  45. Macc says:

    Who are we kidding here? So what, best case is they go 9-7 and have a road playoff game in New Orleans or some other hell hole and get smoked. What does that accomplish? Nothing. Super Bowl is the goal, AR is not capable of delivering that goal here. He needs to be removed. The only way they do that is with L’s.

    1. brisulph says:

      Uhhhhh, if you win the division, you get a home game. It makes a big difference… just ask New Orleans from last year about facing an inferior opponent when on the road.

      1. Macc says:

        Good call , brisulph. You’re right, div winner gets a home game. Do we really want to aspire to be the 2010 Seahawks? I don’t believe the 2011 Eagles (coaching staff & roster) have Super Bowl potential. Call me crazy. You would be hard pressed to find a bigger Eagles fan than me and as much as it hurts me to say it I think change would be best. btw, we have lost 5 in a row at home, not sure the home game makes a difference.

        1. brisulph says:

          Difference is the Eagles are a team that can make some noise… assuming they can get back to playing more like their season opener. In the least, they need to make a big run of Ws, if only to keep them from a better draft pick.

        2. Gary says:

          If we start playing well enough to make the playoffs, then there’s no reason we can’t make some noise.

  46. brisulph says:

    Can a 9-7 team win the NFC East? Assuming of course, that the Redskins O reverts back to what you would expect from that outfit.

    1. I not only think a 9-7 team CAN win the NFC East, I think a 9-7 team WILL win the NFC East.

      1. brisulph says:

        That’s why Eagle fans should not be giving up yet then, because 8-3 is not an unrealistic record to achieve (especially since under Reid they play better in the 2nd half of the season).

        1. Hell, 7-4 the rest of the way could get it done, as long as those 7 wins are against the right opponents.
