Snap Reactions: Notes on the Seahawks’ snap counts from loss to the Packers

A hobbled Seahawks team saw their season come to a close on Sunday, as they came up short in yet another comeback bid, falling to the Packers 28-23. Seattle lost another pair of players to injury, while others battled through various ailments. That and more, below:

  • Phil Haynes entered the game for his first action on offense after Jamarco Jones was forced out with a concussion, and played 70 percent of the offense’s snaps. Upon live viewing, he looked steady and will be likely competing for a starting job next season.
  • Pete Carroll said all week long that Marshawn Lynch would have a bigger role on Sunday, and he did. The team legend played a season-high 58 percent in a night which saw the running game stifled.
  • Malik Turner, healthy once again, returned to the third receiver role and pushed David Moore down the depth chart. Turner played 45 percent of snaps, and had a drop in the biggest moment. It’s a disappointing end to a positive season for the role player.
  • Jadeveon Clowney, with a sports hernia and headed towards free agency and surgery, played a season-high 83 percent of snaps. Say what you will about his production, but Clowney’s toughness and willingness to keep playing down the stretch was admirable.
  • A disappointing end to what was good form from rookie Ugo Amadi, who played just 17 percent of snaps and got picked on by Aaron Rodgers. Despite the rough divisional round, Amadi looks to be a player for the future.
