I picked up Powell in fantasy hoping the OC would realize what most of the posters already know.
why are we always horrible? Why is it always so difficult for us to try new things.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAwhy are we always horrible? We is always so difficult for us to try new things.
Arent you one of the kool aiders? Are you joining us on the dark side?
And look at the difference in our cross-town rivals... Wilson in the doghouse, Bradshaw gets hurt, they plug in Brown and he runs wild (13 for 71, long of 23 with a TD).... makes me sick
Same thing happened in 2007 during their SB run... one guy got hurt, they plugged in another and no difference...
Either they draft much better RB depth or maybe the key is the OL
Well greene got hurt, we plugged in Powell and he averaged 3 yards a carry. Its not like Powell was ripping off 20 yard runs.And look at the difference in our cross-town rivals...

the jets should have signed d.j ware when the giants released him.
And to be honest, Brown's being hanging around for years.
What happened to this guy? He was an absolute animal in 2009
I think we would be pretty hard pressed to find a worse 1,2 and 3 running back corps in the entire NFL.
Just sad really.
hard to address that now unless tanne can pull a trade similiar to the edwards deal years ago.
This is a silly thread. Greene is our most physical runner and critical to our ball control offense. After he came out of the game in the 2nd quarter we weren't able to move the pile after moving them off the ball nicely the entire 1st quarter. In the second half we we're playing from behind and they mugged our receivers at the LOS and moved them off their routes/timing. They played physical defense. We are not yet an offense that can play from behind.
You can find 10 or more teams with 2 RBs better than anyone on our roster... for example...
New Orleans: Ingram/Thomas/Sproles
San Fran: Gore/Hunter
Could also argue...
St Louis: Jackson/Richardson
and there are likely others where we just don't see enough of the #2
After watching the fins game yesterday, Lamar Miller looked really good. Hes super fast and quick to the hole. And, he was still around in the 4th round of this years draft.
Miller and greene would have been a real nice tandem. Thunder and Lightning.
If his name had been anything other than Tebow, fans would have been pulling their hair out about why the guy who had 1 carry for 20 yards didn't get any more carries.
We're better off with Powell starting. Greene is a one dimensional runner and cannot cut. Atleast Powell can run around the edges and cut in and out of blocks.
Also he cannot block worth a damn and he cannot catch out of the backfield. He is also slow and has no real change of direction. He is a straight ahead runner to gets himself dinged up every game. Literally every game.
He is also the best runner we have on the team which is a sad commentary on the other two.
greene is a 1 dimensional rb. opposing defenses like pittsburgh know this and game plan for it. big deal we beat buffalo this offense needs alot of work.
