Jets' playing-time breakdown: Offense at midseason

An examination of the offense at the midpoint of the season:

Note: Based on 570 snaps


Geno Smith -- 462 snaps/81 percent

Michael Vick -- 117 snaps/21 percent

Analysis: Despite his turnover woes, Smith managed eight starts, but he'll begin the second half of the season on the bench. Let's look at his first-half performance through the prism of playing time: He committed one turnover every 38.5 snaps, slightly worse than last season's mark (39.4). ... Vick has played roughly five quarters, but that's about to change.

Running back

Chris Ivory -- 245 snaps/43 percent

Chris Johnson -- 194 snaps/34 percent

Bilal Powell -- 125 snaps/22 percent

Tommy Bohanon -- 54 snaps/9 percent

John Conner -- 40 snaps/7 percent

Sheldon Richardson -- 2 snaps/0.4 percent

Analysis: You knew it would be backfield-by-committee, but who could've imagined that Johnson, a former 2,000-yard rusher, would have only 34 percent of the snaps at the midpoint? Ivory's strong start, coupled with Johnson's relative ineffectiveness, are the reasons. ... Powell's work has been limited primarily to the third-down role. ... The role of the fullback hasn't changed from Bohanon (season-ending collarbone injury) to Conner. ... Richardson was used as a fullback in two goal-line plays.

Wide receiver

Jeremy Kerley -- 408 snaps/72 percent

Eric Decker -- 368 snaps/65 percent

David Nelson -- 299 snaps/52 percent

Greg Salas -- 193 snaps/34 percent

T.J. Graham -- 71 snaps/25 percent

Percy Harvin -- 44 snaps/8 percent

Chris Owusu -- 20 snaps/4 percent

Saalim Hakim -- 13 snaps/2 percent

Walter Powell -- 6 snaps/1 percent

Jalen Saunders -- 6 snaps/1 percent

Analysis: What a mess. So many bodies, such little production. Crazy stat: Only two wideouts -- Decker and Kerley -- have more than eight receptions. The lack of continuity and talent, no doubt, have hurt Geno Smith's development. ... Nelson was getting a starter's share of the reps, but they dropped him like a hot potato when they traded for Harvin. ... Decker missed close to two full games with a hamstring injury, which explains his relatively low percentage. ... Salas was starting to become a factor, but injuries created an opportunity for Graham. ... Saunders, a fourth-round bust, was sent packing a few weeks ago.

Tight end

Jeff Cumberland -- 472 snaps/83 percent

Jace Amaro -- 235 snaps/41 percent

Zach Sudfeld -- 44 snaps/8 percent

Analysis: Congratulations to Cumberland. He has a the highest playing-time percentage of all the skill players, including the quarterbacks. ... Amaro's role should continue to grow. He leads the team with 32 receptions, one of the few bright spots. ... Sudfeld earns his keep on special teams.

Offensive line

D'Brickashaw Ferguson -- 570 snaps/100 percent

Nick Mangold -- 570 snaps/100 percent

Breno Giacomini -- 570 snaps/100 percent

Willie Colon -- 564 snaps/99 percent

Brian Winters -- 371 snaps/65 percent

Oday Aboushi -- 204 snaps/36 percent

Dalton Freeman -- 1 snap/0.1 percent

Analysis: The continuity was disrupted when Winters suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 6, creating a lineup spot for Aboushi. Otherwise, the Jets can't use injuries as an excuse, as they've enjoyed perfect playing time at the three most important spots -- center and the two tackle positions. Ferguson, a pillar of durability, has missed only one snap in his entire career. ... Ben Ijalana, Wesley Johnson and rookie Dakota Dozier have yet to see action.
