Also, Powell came on and had a really nice few runs. One play he kept his legs churning (which greene never does) and got a 5 yard gain when he should have been stopped for two. On another he LEPT OVER A PILE like some kind of antelope and got a four yard gain where greene would have ran into the back of a lineman.
It drives me crazy that Greene is still the no. 1 back.
