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.
I agree with all your criticisms in his game. I don't even know if there's one trait about him that I would call "great" or even above average. 2.5 years ago, I would have laughed at that comment. Back then, I thought he was closer to becoming Michael Turner than LaMont Jordan. In his rookie year, I thought he showed impressive initial burst for a big guy. I never thought he had great lateral quickness, but I thought between the combination of burst and power, he could be a solid lead back.
To his credit, I think he's made a little bit of progress with regards to catching the ball. He still sucks at it, but he's gotten better. Part of the problem is that Sanchez doesn't put nearly enough touch on his screen and dump off passes. More importantly, IMO, he needs to work on his pass protection...as crappy as a guy like Turner is at catching balls, he's at least competent enough to protect the QB. Between him and McKnight, I'm terrified of our RBs ability to pass pro this year.
But for a guy whose cap hit is roughly $850K, we're getting good value out of him this year. Run his ass into the ground this season and kick him to the curb in 2013.
