Note: I’ll update the snap counts in this spreadsheet all season including the first tab tracking the season totals. While I’ll paste individual game PT in each week’s recap, I’ll likely refer to the season totals moving forward from that link. So uh, peep it.
The Jamon Brown/Cody Wichmann rotation at guard was...I don’t even know. I can’t recall seeing something like that on the offensive line.
And if you want an easy way to see why Todd Gurley is going to have a tough time in 2016, look no further than the playing time for the receiving options. Does it really matter who the QB is if you’re just going to roll out a Kenny Britt-Tavon Austin-Lance Kendricks receiving threat? They were in on nearly every snap. Sure, the Rams put Brian Quick out for half of the time and flexed Tyler Higbee, Bradley Marquez and Cory Harkey for roughly the other half. But how is that passing game going to open things up? It’s a question that’s been begging and answer for three years. Not sure Offensive Coordinator Rob Boras can answer it in 2016.
Speaking of Gurley, let’s keep an eye on his work rate. Last night set the bar at 60%, though with the game out of reach late, he got some rest. Interested to see how much he goes against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend.
Any surprises here? I guess if there’s one it’s that the Rams are tied to the Ogletree-Barron duo.
Is there any chance the Rams get a third linebacker some playing time? How soon? And who?
I wondered, with Daren Bates leaving the group, if Cody Davis and Chase Reynolds would maintain their grip on the special teams leaders. It certainly appears as if that’s the case.
The linebacking trio in Littleton, Hager and Forrest is clearly a major component along with Marquez, Harkey and Hill. ST remains the easiest place to ease in transitional roster pieces. With WR Nelson Spruce on the mend, we know somebody’s going to make way. Is WR Mike Thomas and his nine special teams snaps the obvious candidate? What about as CB E.J. Gaines and WR Pharoh Cooper return?
Anything jump out to you from the playing time among any of the three units? Anyone you wish had gotten more time? Or less?
