    Was he awful on running back punts/KO?

    No, no you were more than likely correct in what you said in your previous post, that Greene saw that Hunter ran right past the DE. Why is anyone's guess (I think it's a lack of instinct). And I agree, you can bet that Greene, or any RB worth his salt, knows the blocking assignment of every OL on any given rushing play (since they have to, like, run behind them and all). Only a fool would think otherwise.

    He needs to go.The fullback is a dead position in the NFL.Too bad our coach is stuck in the 1970's

    Tebow will be in there for short yardage

    LOL..did you watch Connor at all last night?? He did nothing to help the running game. On one play he was actually blocking Keller in the back on a short yardage play. He is a useless as a FB.

    Shonn has no right to be frustrated at anything/anybody but himself. He gained 2 yds on 2nd and 3 resulting in a 3rd and 1. Shonn couldn't get that 1 yard and we go for it on 4th and 1 and then Conner gets stuffed. So Shonn had 2 plays to gain 3 yds and couldn't. Connor had ups and downs like he always does, he made that good catch in the flat for 8 yd gain then on next play had great block on Blackburn for Green to gain 6 yds for a 1st down. There are bigger problems than the terminator.

    I disagree. Aside from that silly penalty he was ok. I do think its time for him to put up or shut up. I think he gets too much hate because he threw up three years ago. People do not mention his strong returns last year. I guess they conveniently forget that! I do agree that Conner is on the bubble. I thought he was terrible last night.

    In his defense , hunter missed the key block on that 4th and 1.

    Sanchez bobbled the exchange on that run did he not?

    Conner has got to adjust to the situations at hand he is not going to run through Giants that already made forward penetration. He made a nice catch though, I think?
