He fumbles too much and he's bad in pass protection. Those things are true, but Greene and Powell aren't going to produce "chunk" yards for us.
I'm tired of the philosophy that we have on offense. We're too conservative, and it goes beyond playcalling. We need to put guys on the field that can produce big plays. The coaching staff is going to go with Greene because he doesn't make mistakes, nevermind that he doesn't create any big plays.
McKnight at HB; Holmes, Schillens, and Hill as the primary guys on the outside; 2 TE sets with Keller and Cumberland/Baker. And there's a reason that you don't see pure Fullbacks on rosters anymore. If you want a lead blocker, put a TE back there. The ones that are still around are good runners/receivers.
How many times did he fumble last year when he was running back punts? Who told you he can't block? We have read that he has improved this ear and its because he is bigger.
