3. He can cut and find a hole in the second level.
There is simply no way greene would have scored on the second TD run. He only know 1 direction, straight forward.
Powell is a very good 1 cut runner and also has the power to run between the tackles at 210 lbs. I really hope we feature him this thursday
Agree 1000%. Greene runs right into that defender that Powell cut around. Greene gets 4 yards on that play, Powell scored. The added dimension in the passing game is the biggest difference, I have been preaching this all season that getting the RBs involved in the passing game will be a huge help to Mark.
