Wrong Rb to lose bc McKnight SUX!!!
depth should b
DRAFTPIC - Lttimore,Taylor,Lacy,Michael,Ball
don't blame green for the lack of a running game.the offensive line sucked.even the best running backs would not have done well with jets offensive line.
If the jets keep Powell and McKnigt, they better draft a RB and bring a veteran in.
Greene will be a nice complimentary back somewhere, but not right for the Jets .
He came up big for us in two straight playoff years. Other than that, he hasn't done a damn thing and was a bust pick.
The Titans Chris Johnson will probably be cut real soon. The Titans aren't paying him what he is due. He the type oF Rb that the Jet offense needs. Can the Jets afford him is the question.
Geezus, its amazing how many people on here rip the offensive line. Greene had some of the worst advanced metrics of any starting back in the league.
He cant make defenders miss, and actually choosed to run into them rather then around them. He cant catch or function as a reliable receiver in any way.
The guy is below average in every possible way, cant wait to have him gone.
If Shonn Greene ran through a desert and there was one cactus in a million square miles he'd be stuck to it.
Greene has been "marketed" to us as a Power Back that wears down defenses. The problem is that "power back" isnt true and is really only an excuse. Greene measures in at 5'11 226lbs. Here are some other RBs for comparison:
Arian Foster 6'1 228
Willis MacGhee 6'1 230
Stephen Jackson 6'2 240
Trent Richardson 5'9 230
Are any of the above considered "power backs that grind it out"? No, they all catch passes, are great in the open field and have break away speed.
Greene has NONE of those qualities and has been excused for poor production because "its not his forte" well what has he every done well for us? Ran forward to get 3.8 yards when the oline gives him space for 5 yards?
Whoever is in there next year, will be a massive upgrade over the farce of an NFL RB that we have had for the past 2 seasons.
Other than that, I don't like Greene as a starter at all.
I would rather have started Powell for most of the year, or McKnight. Greene was the guy based on seniority, IMO.
