Haven’t made it out to Redskin Park yet today but I’m sure the Great Punt Off 2009 is well under way. I believe a punter will be signed today or Wednesday so they can start working with the special teams and be ready to play Sunday at Carolina.
Here are the playing time totals for every defensive player and every offensive skill-position player Sunday against Tampa Bay (all totals are unofficial and include penalty snaps, but not delay of game or selected false starts):
OFFENSE (61 snaps)
RB: Clinton Portis 41, Mike Sellers 34, Ladell Betts 14, Marcus Mason 6.
TE: Chris Cooley 58, Fred Davis 6.
WR: Santana Moss 60, Malcolm Kelly 50, Antwaan Randle El 22, Devin Thomas 11.
Analysis: Davis and Thomas continue to see minimal playing time. Three of Davis’ six snaps were the end-of-game kneel downs. … On second offensive snap, the Redskins went with an empty backfield when Portis motioned to wide right. The Bucs floated a safety over to cover Portis. … Interesting formation in the second quarter — Cooley and Davis wide left and right and Moss and Kelly in slot left and right.
DEFENSE (57 snaps)
DL: Andre Carter 50, Albert Haynesworth 45, Kedric Golston 31, Cornelius Griffin 28, Phillip Daniels 21, Jeremy Jarmon 11, Lorenzo Alexander 7.
LB: London Fletcher 57, Brian Orakpo 54, Rocky McIntosh 42, Chris Wilson 6.
DB: LaRon Landry 57, Carlos Rogers 57, DeAngelo Hall 57, Reed Doughty 49, Justin Tryon 24, Chris Horton 21, Kareem Moore 9, Fred Smoot 1.
Analysis: Obviously, Smoot has fallen on the depth chart — his only snap came as a safety late in the first half. … Jarmon played no first-half snaps but was on the field for the final three snaps and forced the game-sealing fumble. … Tryon’s sack came in a dime package when he blitzed from the left slot. … On Tampa Bay’s first third down, the Redskins went with 3 DL/2 LB/6 DB. They played three down linemen several other times.
Kickoff coverage: Suisham, Moore, Westbrook, Cartwright, D. Thomas, Tryon, Doughty, Blades, Wilson, Sellers and Alexander.
Kickoff return: Cooley, Cartwright, Betts, Moore, Alexander, Yoder, Sellers, Blades, Wilson, Horton and McIntosh.
Punt coverage: H. Smith/Suisham, Albright, Tryon, Sellers, Doughty, Horton, Yoder, Blades, Cartwright, Westbrook and Moore.
Punt return: Randle El, Smoot, Jarmon, Landry, Westbrook, Blades, Alexander, Tryon, Horton and Moore.
Analysis: Cooley assumed Fred Davis’ spot on kickoff return — on the front line of the formation after Davis didn’t really block anybody against Detroit last week. … Suisham’s hang times on three punts were 4.41, 4.38 and 3.09 seconds. … On the blocked point after attempt, the Bucs overloaded one side — six defenders against four blockers. Todd Yoder blocked the player closest to the ball, but was unable to chip Ronde Barber, who came in unblocked to block the kick.
