we need a cutback RB ... shifty with breakout speed.
I'd even settle for Noel Devine
I don't care undrafted, CFL options, unsigned ...
Greene isn't going to cut it and we can't just pray Mcknight is that guy. Someone else needs to be brought in and you never know. Can anyone think of anyone? Even if they are a stretch but have that speed and ability.
RB is pretty far down on the list. RT, WR, blocking TE on offense. Then maybe a RB who can pass block first.
a running back on the jets that can pass block??? brilliant!!!
in this league running backs should be a dime a dozen so to alot of jet fans its a weak issue compared to what really needs to be done. the o-line. instead of the ground and pound philosophy we should follow the trend and actually put points on the board by being a pass happy offense. running the ball is great if we want to eat up clock time or setup a field goal but really in this league the passing game is where its at and anyone that thinks different is living in the past.
I agree. A good back would have busted some long runs with the holes we were giving Greene vs. Giants. He was only able to manage 5-7 yards while an above average RB would have been breaking off 15+ bursts.
Greene lacks the burst to hit the hole and get through and gain some yards, seems to hit the holes when closing and gets caught. Need a back with that burst of speed to hit the hole while open and gain some yards....
