Greene - not very impressive (inherently) & his 2009 playoff meal ticket is expired
I never been a fan of this guy from the get go (hated the draft pick), and his career with us has been highlighted by a few "run of mill" Lamont Jordan runs in the playoffs and a library of boring game tape in between
Shonn Greene - RB - Jets
NFL Films guru Greg Cosell believes Shonn Greene is a "little bit of a one-speed runner," and lacks the ability to create his own yards.
"I think he can move the pile because he’s got natural strength. But I don’t think there’s much burst to him," Cosell said. "He’s not a guy who’s really going to make people miss. I think there’s no way you can be an elite back or a top-level back if you can’t make unblocked defenders miss. ... You must be able to make unblocked defenders miss. He’s not gonna do that." Greene expects to surpass last season's career-high 253 rushing attempts, but we share Cosell's doubts. He's Rotoworld's No. 26 running back.
I'd honestly be OK with cutting him. not sure if that's plausible from a cap stand point but i fail to see what Greene brings to the table any more. TERRIBLE hands, poor YAC, and no top speed. Powell as sucky as he is, can do the same. I'd rather have Tebow back there all day.
Give him McKnight, Ganaway the keys to the cadillac.
