Buccaneers vs. Seahawks Snap Counts: Keith Tandy takes over

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The snap counts are in for Sunday's game, and Keith Tandy, Leonard Johnson and Skye Dawson received a surprising number of snaps.

Keith Tandy is not a good safety, despite an interception against the Seattle Seahawks. In general he lacks the speed and coverage abilities to really function in the NFL. I'm not a big fan of Ahmad Black, but he was certainly better than Tandy. And yet, Tandy took all of the snaps against the Seattle Seahawks with Dashon Goldson on the sidelines -- Kelcie McCray didn't even get on the field once on defense.

Leonard Johnson is quickly being replaced with the return of both Danny Gorrer and Michael Adams. Johnson managed just 18 snaps, with Adams getting 15 and Gorrer adding 19 snaps. Johnson's play has been poor all season long, but the Bucs really didn't have any better options. Another interesting point in this game: even second cornerback Johnthan Banks played just 71% of the snaps.

This was probably due to Seattle's use of run-heavy personnel, which dictates fewer nickel and dime packages than the Bucs usually run. Mason Foster took 59 of 63 snaps after all and Jonathan Casillas was on the field for half of the game.

On offense, Tiquan Underwood took the majority of the snaps as the second wide receiver, with Skye Dawson acting as the third receiver throughout the game. Eric Page managed just two snaps and with Chris Owusu out the team didn't have many other options. One interesting development: Tom Crabtree had three more snaps than Tim Wright, probably because of the Bucs' run-heavy game plan.
