    The fact that the RB specialists don't learn from it is yet another reason to be concerned.
    No, when you think he's the best option, you have a problem.

    Gaining yards as a QB when the D doesn't know if you are running or passing is the the same as a RB lining up to carry the ball every time he touches it.

    Huh? I'm talking about speed, skills, technique. Not playbook.

    Pay attention.

    How far into that plastic jug of Popov are you?

    i like McKnight as a change-of-pace back to complement Greene, so i would have them alternate/split the "running down" carries

    keep Powell in the 3rd-down role

    not a problem for the 2012 Jets team
    Like it or not...don't get the feeling LT is walking through the doors at Florham Park anytime soon so I think it's fair to set Mcknight will be getting a ton of carries

    A lot of you are thinking McKnight is much better because he got a lot more snaps the other night. You can't evaluate what you can't see. Bilal Powell is a much better bet to stay healthy and durable. Joe McKnight will easily go down for the season if they start giving him too many carries between the tackles. His body isn't built to endure that kind of punishment.

    Besides, why would you want such a lazy punk starting?

    In all honesty , I don't think this CS have a clue what ground and pound is. I think Rex likes it because it sounds good with a great defense. If they did , they would have the right persons for ground and pound right now since its four years already. A stout O line,a blocking TE and atleast one big down hill RB.

    Doesn't matter who starts if the oline can't push people off the ball, that's the main problem

    It took him almost until the end of the season

    dominated.

    Damn good idea.
    So few people get this. Greene is a closer type back. Not so good as an every down back, IMO.

A thunder lighting/lightning thunder duo, either or, I'm just glad to see our backup having a productive camp regardless of who starts. Greene has earned the starting role thus far, putting up a productive season behind a struggling offensive line. Coming through in the clutch during postseason play. It's now up to McKnight to continue emerging.
    Agreed. Bring Green in as more of a Mclain type of back like baltimore use to do. Mcknight is there best back by far right now.

    Green' limited upside is fading. Starting him is almost comical. He doesn't set the tone and defenses aren't feeling his will.


    Shoulda signed Braylon

    I think Powell and McKnight should fight it out to be the starter.

    I personally think our RB situation is as poor as our OL situation.

    We have a good 2nd back in Greene, but no viable starter, IMO.

    I agree with your post, though, that one of those two should start.
