    The "kid" is no better then Shonn Greene. This is another, the star is not recognized by the "experts" post.

    I think they are, all three of them are JAGs but Powell showed me today that he is the best of a sorry bunch. He should get more carries.

    McKnight, pffft. I guess the coaching staff must still be holding him back.

    I want more carries for anyone not named Shonn Greene. Worst starting player on the Jets and the CS thinks he's a workhorse HB.

    I'm curious to see what kind of receiver he is. If he can be effective catching the ball, it's a no-brainer as to who should be starting.

    its really time to bring in a stud running back, whether it be through the draft next year or FA. We need a stud running back to help out mark!

    Powell's got potential. I like the reception he made today. Turned it upfield and got good yardage.

    the difference between Powell and Greene is that when there is a hole, Greene gets the bare minimum while Powell can at least hit the hole and gain a few yards. Sure, he dropped a big 3rd down pass, but at least he doesnt look like an OG running the ball

    Powell should be getting more carries than greene for sure. Has a little more burst, has some wiggle, can catch and block and does all of these things better than Greene

    Powell has greatly improved from last season. He has a very quick burst when he gets the ball. I would also like to see him get continued touches.

    QFT

    Powell appears to be a JAG, but Greene is simply unacceptable at this point. In my opinion, Greene's days as a NYJ are numbered.

    Bingo. Powell's biggest credential at this point is he's better than Greene, which isn't saying much. I think he can be solid, but don't expect this kid to have star potential, I haven't seen that

    Powell and Greene both have roles that they can be succesful in, and the coaches need to figure out what those roles are soon.

    If it were my choice, Powell is generally in there on the longer Down/Distance combos and Greene is in there for anything under 3 yards to go.

    I like what Powell can bring to the passing game, and I think that the offense can be too predictable sometimes on 1st and 2nd down due to Greene's limitations in that area.

    I also do not like the idea of Powell being counted on to convert short yardage situations, as he doesn't seem as decisive to the whole yet. Greene gets a lot of flack, but one thing he does well is decides on his lane, and hits it hard, and will usually pick up yards.

    I think our offense could definitely benefit from Powell getting more touches, even if it served nothing less than having another body the D generally has to worry about in the passing game.

    As much as people are down on Greene, and I agree, he's not the type of back that should be receiving 25 carries a game, Powell is not that back either, so the coaches need to find roles to utilize them both as best they can.

    Did Mcknight get caught playing with Rex's wife's feet? I'm not saying he's the 2nd coming of Barry Sanders or anything,but for a team who lacks explosive playmakers he is one of them.


    He should at least get 8-10 touches,but I guess it's better to have Greene slam into the line and get 2 yards every damn time.
