Seahawks snaps lost from 2022
Seaside Joe 1165: Which parting players are taking the most snaps with them?
Seaside Joe is nearing a 600% increase in subscriptions over the last three months! I have to give credit to Pete and John for making things super interesting this year, as most of the feedback I’ve heard from Seahawks fans over the last eight weeks is that the team was lacking intrigue in recent seasons.
The Russell Wilson trade, the release of Bobby Wagner, and chaos around the NFL has been a perfect storm for fascination.
Thank you for being a Seaside Joe reader. If you are relatively new here, today is the 1,165th day in a row that I’ve sent out the Seaside Joe newsletter, but prior to 2022 most of those editions went out via mailchimp. I’ve no idea when the Seahawks newsletter streak will end but there are no plans to do so and I’ll continue to put out at least one FREE article per day—as well as more Regular Joes premium bonus posts in the future.
You can help support the newsletter by joining the $5 month club—but it also helps immensely to share, to comment, and to become a part of this growing community. All in all, I’m just happy to have you here as a reader, when you have the time to pop in!
Expect more film, more NFL media criticism, more Kenneth Walker III love, more Grayson McCall adoration, and never enough Seattle Seahawks.
Pardon me for a brief Joe today—I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday! I wanted to quickly run down which former Seahawks played the most 2022 snaps. Consider what that means for Seattle: In which cases is that bad news? In which cases is that good news?
In 2021, the most snaps that left the team: KJ Wright (991), Jarran Reed (848), Shaquill Griffin (813) represented three of the top-five snap-getters on defense in 2020. The offense had relative continuity, other than two guards (Jordan Simmons, Mike Iupati), David Moore, Greg Olsen, and Jacob Hollister.
