Full season snap count notes: Eagles offense

These numbers are per Pro Football Focus:

Player Snaps Player Snaps
Todd Herremans 1094 Kyle DeVan 294
Jason Kelce 1094 Vince Young 218
Evan Mathis 1024 Owen Schmitt 173
Brent Celek 970 King Dunlap 147
Jason Peters 953 Ronnie Brown 147
LeSean McCoy 894 Steve Smith 135
DeSean Jackson 869 Winston Justice 84
Michael Vick 849 Chad Hall 69
Danny Watkins 807 Dion Lewis 42
Jeremy Maclin 755 Mike Kafka 33
Jason Avant 731 Jamaal Jackson 17
Clay Harbor 368 Julian Vandervelde 1
Riley Cooper 330  

– No Eagles played every snap in 2011.  Todd Herremans and Jason Kelce both missed 7 snaps.  Evan Mathis, perhaps the Eagles’ best free agent signing, was 3rd.  He missed the back-breaking home loss embarrassment against the Cardinals.

– Brent Celek is a badass.  He played 970 snaps with a sports hernia and torn labrum in his hip.

– Danny Watkins held out of camp for 5 days.  Just five days.  But those five days were enormous.  The offseason was exceedingly short, and those five days killed him.  By the time the season began, Watkins wasn’t ready and the Eagles had to plug in Kyle DeVan, who was downright awful for 294 snaps.  DeVan played in 5 games, and was cut.

– I felt the Eagles largely did well with their bigger free agent acquisitions, but the role players that they brought in were disastrous, particularly the guys on offense.  Vince Young, Steve Smith, Ronnie Brown, Kyle DeVan combined for 794 snaps of awfulness.  None of them will be Eagles in 2012.  Ronnie Brown gets all the heat for his fumble (as he most definitely should), but watch Kyle DeVan trying to pull from RG on that play.  Comical:

– The Eagles used Owen Schmitt on just 13.3% of their snaps.

– King Dunlap played just 147 snaps this season, but was very good when the Eagles needed him.  I wonder if some team out there thinks he can start in the NFL.  If there’s one out there, Dunlap could be leaving Philly.  Otherwise, the Eagles have done an excellent job developing him into a good swing tackle.

– Winston Justice lost his starting job in 2011 and played only 84 snaps.  He’s set to make $3.2 million this season.  He won’t be making that in Philly.  It’ll be interesting to see if the Eagles can trade him for a late round pick.  Somehow, they were able to unload Stacy Andrews and his God-awful contract to the Seahawks and got a pick in return, so it’s not out of the question.  Otherwise, the Eagles will cut him.  Ditto that for Jamaal Jackson (17 snaps).

– Chad Hall had 69 snaps.  One year, hopefully in the near future, he won’t have any.

    Atleast we got 330 snaps of Sunshine

  18. Anders says:

    I hope to see Harbor with more snaps next year, the 2-TE set seemed very successful when they used it.

  19. Will says:

    I’m surprised Smith had as many snaps as he did

  20. RogerPodacter says:

    i’m almost happier with chad hall returning punts over desean jackson.
    sure, we wont see the highlight reel td return once a season, but i like how hall gets the ball (securely) and just heads up field and takes what is there.

    I’ve always been a Dunlap fan. I think he’ll find a starting job somewhere.
