    Greene: We can run on Texans

    Either Greene has high hopes for Lex Hillard and Johnathan Grimes or someone finally explained you are not supposed to seek out players to run head first into them:

    Greene: We can run on Texans

    Jets running back Shonn Greene knows how good the Texans defense is. He knows it’s the No. 1-ranked unit in the NFL.
    Still, Greene said he thinks the Jets can get something going against them if they execute their game plan Monday night.
    “We’ve got to try to bring it to those guys and not let them bring it to us,” Greene said. “I think our offensive line has to be a bully in this game and try to get the push on them so we can make plays. We’ve just got to execute.”
    The Jets running game has been a rumor so far this season. Greene has 191 yards on 68 carries with just one touchdown. The Jets’ rushing attack ranks 24th in the league at 86.5 yards per game.
    Anthony J. Causi
    RUSH HOUR: Shonn Greene, taking a handoff from Mark Sanchez last week, believes the Jets can succeed on the ground against Houston tonight.


    Greene said as tough as the yards have been to come by, he is not losing confidence.
    “You can’t get frustrated,” Greene said. “It’s a long season. I’m pretty confident we’re going to get it going and we’re going to be fine.”
    Left guard Matt Slauson said the key for the Jets is avoiding the killer turnovers that could cause them to fall behind in the game and then abandon the running game.
    “We have to assert our dominance early,” Slauson said. “We have to get into a rhythm. We can’t have those devastating mistakes where we turn the ball over so many times where we have to jump out of our running game.”
    ***
    The Jets denied an NFL Network report Sunday that 12,000 tickets remained unsold for tonight’s game as late as Friday. A team spokesman said tonight’s game will be televised locally along with the remainder of the Jets home games this year.
    The Jets do not comment specifically on ticket sales numbers or if they have to purchase tickets to avoid a blackout, but that does not appear to be the case for Monday night.
    If the Jets struggle to sell tickets, it will fuel speculation the team is going to bench quarterback Mark Sanchez in favor of Tim Tebow to generate publicity.
    ***
    The Jets expect nose tackle Sione Po’uha to miss the game with a back problem. Po’uha, who has not practiced this week, has been dealing with the back issue since training camp. He missed most of training camp as well as the season opener with the Bills.
    Po’uha has played the past three games, but does not look like he is 100 percent.
    “I think it’s pretty obvious that it’s definitely affected him,” defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said.
    Pettine said Po’uha has been affected by the lack of training camp, as well as the pain in his back.
    ***
    The Jets will induct Mark Gastineau and Wesley Walker into the team’s Ring of Honor at halftime.

    Pretty damn good report from our CBNY with Greene's 2009 pre-draft report:


    BIOGRAPHY: "Big 10 Offensive Player of the Year last season after rushing numbers of 307/1,850/20 and eight receptions. Did not participate in the football program in 2007. Second team running back in 2006 and finished the season with 32/205/1. Will be 23 years old when this season kicks off in September."

    POSITIVES: "Athletic ball carrier with a developing game. Turns on his burst in one quick step, consistently runs north/south and gets a lot of force going up the field. Keeps his feet driving on contact, aggressively puts his shoulders into defenders, and falls forward when tackled, picking up the extra yardage. Displays good footwork in a small area, with the ability to bounce around piles. Attempts to set defenders up and make them miss or runs over them altogether. Very strong in his lower body, and delivers some punishing blows. Works to get as much out of every run as possible. Effectively picks up blocking assignments, squaring into defenders and removing them from the action."

    NEGATIVES: "Lacks the agility to turn the corner or beat defenders around the outside. Loses momentum when he must immediately cut back against the grain. Not a creative ball carrier. Improved his vision and instincts as the season moved on, yet at times slow finding the open running lanes."

    ANALYSIS: "Greene comes off a tremendous campaign where he literally carried the Iowa offense on his shoulders. He possesses outstanding size and ball-carrying strength, yet at the same time, he shows enough playing speed to run away from defenders. Greene?s game needs polish, butt he's a running back with very limited mileage on his frame and a prospect who should only get better the more he plays."

    PROJECTION: Second Round

    How can anyone read this, has seen Shonn Greene play as a back-up and a starter and not come to the conclusion that he was perfectly cast as the closer to a starting RB.

    I don't know why Greene thinks he can run on the Texans when he can't lift his head to see the holes the OLine is opening up.

    We could barely even run on the Bills. I like the confidence but it borders on delusion more than anything....

    Red face DAMIEN WOODY TALKS ABOUT JETS DECLINE

    ..Talent, personnel, there has been a steady decline. The talent is not there. When I was watching the game [Sunday], the 49ers are what Rex wants his team to be. One of the first things Rex said when he came to New York is he wants to build a bully. Well, thatís what San Francisco is. They come there, they kick your teeth out and thatís it. Rex was looking at it first-hand on the field on Sunday.

    Q: Any hope they can turn it around?

    A: Itís not looking good right now. ... They canít block, they canít run, they donít tackle, they canít throw it and they canít catch it. Thatís why they are not a good football team. ... Itís not like itís going to get any easier this week. They are going against the best team in the league. People were saying the 49ers were good, wait till they see Houston. The Texans are even better on offense. Things could get ugly on Monday night. I hope itís not, but unless they get those five things fixed itís not going to be pretty.

    That's why the fact that we struggled running against even the Bills might be the most damning thing about our running game this season. If you can't un it on them, you can't run it on anyone. Their D is a disgrace. At least Sanchez took advantage, although it's been all downhill ever since
