That would be OK in my book. I don't know too much about him, only what I've watched on YouTube today. He looks like he had a great OL there and that opened holes for him. But not only that, he took full advantage of every situation he was given. He was always falling forward squeezing every last yard out of every play. And he was damn hard to tackle.
He's going to be a bruiser, and a guy that's going to tirer out opposing defenses all game long. After they get tortured by Greene all day, and they're tired, we'll send a healthy dosage of Leon at them, and they flat out won't be able to keep up.
All 3 of our backs compliment each other very well. We really do have a little bit of Earth (Green), Wind (Washington, and Fire (Jones) in the backfield now. For a young QB, this will be crucial. Sanchez won't be asked to carry the offense from day one. That's why he'll have a chance to succeed.
[QUOTE=BIGKIDD325;3105157]Yeah because I'm sure no RB has ever been decent in the NFL while running anything over a 4.5...[/QUOTE]
There's a huge difference between a 4.5 and 4.67. Most linebackers in the league run at or faster than a 4.67. I'm trying to think of runningbacks that have timed this horrific and had productive careers and am struggling.
Nobody is saying that Shonn Greene is a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball, but rather he's your prototypical between the tackles pounder whose goal is to move the chains. I think he'll be just fine for that role.
I could care less about a 40 time @ the combine because...The man could have been a little rusty, he may have not been 100% loose, he may have got off to a bad start running the 40, who knows? But I know one thing...This man has talent.
He rushed for 20 TD's last year (His 1st year as a starter)
He rushed for over 100+ yards like 11 games in a row
And he earned/won the award as the NATION's best running back.
It's a steal that we moved up and stole this Shonn Greene guy with the 1st pick of the 3rd round.
Jet fans have been buzzing about Shonn Greene for months now, long before we drafted this guy so lets not act like we are drinking the kool-aid only because we just drafted the man.
Apparently he timed at 4.53 and 4.56 on his pro day which makes a huge difference in my eyes. I want him to succeed as much as you guys do, but I still have my reservations about this player. I'm just not convinced he has the speed and initial burst to succeed.
