  • If it wasn't apparent before the coaching change, it certainly is now. Chuba Hubbard is the lead back around here, and Miles Sanders is a change-of-pace backup. Hubbard got 65 percent of the snaps to Sanders' 32 percent. He also had 104 yards and two touchdowns on a career-high 25 carries. It figures to stay this way, if not expand, as long as Hubbard's running the way he did Sunday.
  • Speaking of shifts, wide receiver Mike Strachan (31) got more snaps than DJ Chark Jr. (29). Chark still made some plays, but he's a veteran on a one-year contract on a 1-11 team, so it's worth noting that they're trying to see if Strachan can help in the future.
  • And even though it was just one play, it was good to see two extra offensive linemen on the field again, with David Sharpe and Cade Mays checking in as eligible for a snap. As an old and not-skinny person, it makes me happy to see big bodies on the field.

  • It appears that cornerback Jaycee Horn's pitch count was around 30 snaps, and he snuck just past that limit. He played the first series of the second half and was done for the night. It makes sense for a guy coming off a 10-week injury since Horn is a long-term investment here. That role should expand in the coming weeks.
  • Outside linebacker Marquis Haynes Sr. was back and playing a regular role again, especially after Brian Burns was ejected. Haynes has battled back problems all year but said Sunday he was feeling much better, and he showed he can contribute, tying Frankie Luvu with a team-high seven tackles and also adding a sack, two tackles for loss, and a quarterback hit.

JJ Jansen 10 (34%)
Johnny Hekker 10 (34%)
Eddy Piñeiro 6 (21%)

  • Again, the list of dedicated special teamers is shrinking, as everyone else ends up playing a part on offense or defense. Other than Sam Franklin Jr., Tae Davis, and Jammie Robinson, it was specialists and spare offensive lineman Brett Toth. That's what a thin team looks like.
