[QUOTE=GreenWave;4502036]That's great, but how does this matter after the player has been in the NFL for three seasons?
What have you seen from Greene in his career that counters what the original article was stating, specifically about vision?
The playoffs in '09 were great for him. But if you recall, on both of his long TD runs he ran in a straight line to the end zone. Yeah, he trucked Weddle against SD, but there was nothing in his playoff performances that demonstrated the vision you'd expect from a quality #1 RB.[/QUOTE]
In Green's first year, he didn't get an opportunity until Leon Washington went down and even then was a back-up to Jones, until Jones got banged up later in the year.
In his second year, LT had a very good season and was very effective still as a RB. He really didn't get the reps and the carries.
It wasn't until his 3rd year, last year, that he got a bigger workload, and he produced, despite injuries and subpar play on the OL and and flawed offensive philosophy. Because of poor play overall in the passing game and lacking talent to stretch the field, it hurt the running game in the process and in play-action, still, Greene put up over 1,000 yds and didn't get all of the carries with LT still getting a significant portion of the workload.
Your 3 year argument is flawed.
