Question: Aiden Hutchinson Played 60/60 Defensive Snaps & Pressured Mahomes Relentlessly

Q might simply be a player who is most effective playing a certain number of snaps.  Especially when the engine is revving the entire time in an attack oriented defense.

Completely different body type than Hutch or Donald.

Big picture … the world is not always black or white.

Lets take Offensive Tackle as another example.  Would Becton rather be a top 5 RT or an average LT?  He wanted to stay on the left presumably to make more money but the reality is a top 5 RT makes more than an average LT.

This article is a just under a year old but I think it holds true:

Take a look at how Williams’s playing time compares to some of the other top-tier defensive tackles in the NFL:

  • Williams: 40.0 snaps per game / 63% snap ratio
  • Jeffery Simmons (TEN): 54.0 / 81%
  • DeForest Buckner (IND): 53.0 / 78%
  • Jonathan Allen (WAS): 52.3 / 78%
  • Chris Jones (KC): 51.7 / 74%
  • Grady Jarrett (ATL): 51.3 / 79%

Again going to say it again offenses will counter this.  You can bet you will see a lot of offense use the no huddle to stop the Jets  from substituting freely on defense.     Huff and McDonald their  pass rushers are out there , keep them on field,    and pound the football right at them.    Also get those guys coming up the field, and the screen game will kill them.

What is the benefit of giving Q only 60% defensive snap count?

Because the Lions don’t have any other high end talent at DE. It’s Hutch and 3 other guys. Who are the other guys? Exactly!  When Dan Campbell is asked why Hutch plays every down, he responds 

Ps oops i responded to the wrong post

No one gave a **** about the defensive line snap counts until Ulbrich opened his mouth about it, then all of a sudden we had a whole bunch of snap count experts around here. The Jets had the #4 defense in the league last year in both points and yards without any help from the offense. This year, we should have a lot fewer three & outs, and a few more points. An offense that can stay on the field might alter their defensive rest schedule. I’m willing to let these guys run it the way they see fit. I feel like they’ve both gotten their dawgs while also adapting their scheme to the players they have. 

Teams didn’t need to push the ball downfield last year when playing the Jets. Just take what the defense gives you with “dinks, dunks & dribbles” because the offense would give them back the ball quickly & in good field position. Last years defensive “Stats” could be an aberration.
 

This year will be different as Rodgers & Co. should be able to hang 25+ points/game on the board. Teams will need to be more aggressive and having QW on the field an extra 20% of the time gives me comfort.

Adams will be a Jet

So your theory is that teams chose not to pass the ball and score quick efficient touchdowns on purpose?

Great, making opponents run an offense that is different from what they normally run will help the Jets.   
McDonald has shown nothing that says he can’t play the run. 
Playing hurry up keeps the more rounded DL on the field.  
Any more cliches?

Teams didn’t need to challenge the best CB duo in the league nor a stout DL. They felt comfortable enough to kill clock and take the easy screens and dump-offs because they knew (IMO) that the Jets offense was saddled with sub par QB play and a patchwork OL. Why risk an INT.
