In the second half we we're playing from behind and they mugged our receivers at the LOS and moved them off their routes/timing. They played physical defense. We are not yet an offense that can play from behind.
The problem with Greene is that he is a fragile as a pane of glass yet he tries to run as if he were indestructible. The problem is not that he is a pane of glass. The problem lies in the fact that we have not recognized this fact and made changes accordingly.
Also he cannot block worth a damn and he cannot catch out of the backfield. He is also slow and has no real change of direction. He is a straight ahead runner to gets himself dinged up every game. Literally every game.
He is also the best runner we have on the team which is a sad commentary on the other two.
