Here are some observations based on the snap-count data from the Chiefs 45-10 win over Washington on Dec. 8. Numbers provided by the NFL.
*So, just one week after I wrote this, the Chiefs blew out Washington and proceeded to play A.J. Jenkins a grand total of three offensive snaps. Guys, thats 30 fewer than Junior Hemingway, who logged a season-high in snaps Sunday (with 33) but was taken roughly six rounds later than Jenkins was in the 2012 NFL Draft.
In a way, the vast disparity in snaps between the two on Sunday doesnt really surprise me. Hemingway is a superior blocker, which certainly came in handy considering the icy weather. But with a snap differential like this (in a blowout, no less), its also possible hes simply the superior receiver.
