49ers offensive snap count vs. Seahawks: Andrew Tiller, Jordan Devey still splitting snaps

The 49ers continue to rotate right guards, even as the season slips further and further away. I have no idea why.

The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up an embarrassing effort on Thursday, losing 20-3 to the Seattle Seahawks. There was so much wrong with what we saw that it might take some time totally unwrap everything. The team was coming off a win over the Baltimore Ravens and a near-win over the New York Giants, but clearly those were red herrings. And given what we know about certain aspects of those two teams, it is certainly obvious in hindsight.

There is a lot of big picture stuff to figure out, but I thought I'd at least start with the snap count this morning (gamebook PDF). The big news again is the ridiculous snap count split between Andrew Tiller and Jordan Devey. Tiller did not have a great performance last night, but Devey is just no good as a starter. Bill Barnwell might have summed it up best:

Anquan Boldin matched Torrey Smith for most snaps, which was a bit surprising considering the hamstring injury that limited him in practice this week. On the other hand, Carlos Hyde had a fairly limited outing. Reggie Bush had a season-high in snaps, and Mike Davis took over late in the game when it was out of reach. Hyde is dealing with a stress fracture in his foot. It is primarily a pain tolerance issue, but rest would eventually get it right. It will be interesting to see if the 49ers do anything in that regard as the season slips further and further away.
