A look at the New Orleans Saints' snap counts in their 37-34 overtime loss at the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1:

OFFENSE (75 snaps)
Quarterback: Drew Brees 75
Running back: Pierre Thomas 34, Mark Ingram 20, Travaris Cadet 12, Khiry Robinson 12
Fullback: Austin Johnson 7, Parys Haralson 2
Receiver: Marques Colston 64, Brandin Cooks 52, Joe Morgan 49, Robert Meachem 19
Tight end: Jimmy Graham 66, Benjamin Watson 28, Josh Hill 10
Offensive tackle: Terron Armstead 75, Zach Strief 75
Guard: Jahri Evans 75, Ben Grubbs 75
Center: Jonathan Goodwin 75

Thoughts: Itís always surprising to see the low totals for the tailbacks -- but thatís unavoidable since they typically play one at a time. For the most part, they all made the most of their touches. Expect a similar distribution all year. ... Morgan clearly started the season as the No. 3 receiver with Stills out. Although he wound up with no catches, expect him to remain active ahead of Meachem and Nick Toon when Stills comes back. ... Haralsonís two snaps were pretty interesting -- especially considering he successfully served as a lead blocker on a touchdown run by Robinson on his first snap. Haralson, a linebacker by trade, said it was a new wrinkle the Saints added this week, and he had never played fullback at any level in the past.

DEFENSE (72 snaps)
Cornerback: Corey White 66, Patrick Robinson 64, Keenan Lewis 63
Safety: Kenny Vaccaro 72, Jairus Byrd 70, Rafael Bush 27, Vinnie Sunseri 2
Outside linebacker: Junior Galette 60, Kasim Edebali 10, Parys Haralson 7
Inside linebacker: Curtis Lofton 65, David Hawthorne 63, Ramon Humber 12
Defensive end: Cameron Jordan 67, Akiem Hicks 63, Tyrunn Walker 14, Glenn Foster 8
Defensive tackle: Brodrick Bunkley 33, Brandon Deaderick 26

Thoughts: White supplanted Bush as the Saints' nickelback -- not a huge surprise after White played so well this summer, but a change from last season. White was the Saints' third cornerback, but he wound up playing the most snaps because of minor injuries that temporarily sidelined Robinson and Lewis. ... Young backups Brian Dixon, Ronald Powell and Kyle Knox played only on special teams.

agreed--
a lot of people like to rag on Lofton, but he consistently leads in snaps, usually by a large margin
Jordan's # surprises me the most... maybe that's why we had no pressure- he was tired?

was at the game but didn't notice Haralson at FB. Did Hill line up at FB as well? Thinking I might have transposed their numbers and assumed it was Hill
