Super Bowl snap counts

Below is the full list of snap counts for the Super Bowl.

Ultimately, I guess there was just one snap that counted in this game. But there are a few interesting things in there nonetheless.

To wit. …

Will Tukuafu played on both sides of the ball, becoming the first Seahawk to do that in a Super Bowl. Tukuafu did it two years ago with the 49ers, so it’s not the first time it’s been done. But it has to be fairly rare.

— A year after being the Super Bowl MVP, Malcolm Smith didn’t play a down on defense, though he did get on the field on special teams. He’s an unrestricted free agent and it’s possible that a year after his greatest day as a Seahawk that he has now played his last game for the team.

Marshawn Lynch got 81 percent of the snaps, which without checking, I’m pretty sure was his highest percentage of the year. Robert Turbin played almost solely (if not only — I need to review the tape) on the drive at the end of the second quarter, which is his usual role to play in the two-miunte offense at the end of the half. Christine Michael didn’t play at all.

Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman each played all 74 snaps despite injuries that might lead to them having off-season surgery (or in Sherman’s case, undoubtedly will).

— Not much use of two tight-end sets, and probably the fewest of the season in a game when they were all healthy.

Michael Bennett with another yeoman’s effort with 89 percent of the snaps. When it was 24-14, you could have made a case for him as the MVP.

— Again, I’d have to go through every play-by-play to make sure. But the 47 percent of the snaps O’Brien Schofield played was probably a season high, and due to the loss of Cliff Avril to a concussion in the third quarter. Avril’s loss, I think, was a pretty big deal in the game.
