As having been written about already this morning, LaDainian Tomlinson is clearly the Jets featured back three games into the season.
Last night, LT was on the field for 45 of the Jets 57 plays, while Shonn Greene, once thought to be the replacement for Thomas Jones, was on the field for just 14 plays.
Given LT’s history of injuries, that just isn’t going to cut it. Greene needs to regain some confidence and continue his downhill running that he exhibited last season, or else the Jets will be in trouble with their running game.
In case you missed it:
In case you missed it, the Jets honored Jason Taylor in two ways last night:
1. Taylor, one of the games 4 captains, went solo to the coin toss for the Jets, and;
2. Got a gatorade bath from Rex Ryan at the end of the game. How often do you see that?
