Shonn Greene is now the NY Jets starting RB.
He’s had over 1300 yards in 2 seasons with 4 TD’s and some big time plays when it counted but it’s time for Shonn to step it up!
He needs to bring consistency to the running game and stake his claim as an elite running back in the NFL. The Jets pound and ground game ranked 3rd in 2010 but did not produce a 1000 yard rusher. Greene had 766 yards on 185 carries with 2 TD’s and a respectable 4.1 yards per carry. Not bad for a 2nd year player but now the Jets offensive coordinator, Brian Schottenheimer, would like to see Greene take over the running game and become the feature back in the NY running attack. His bruising style of play has what it takes to wear down defenses which we know is good for short yardage and goal line situations however, it remains to be seen if Greene can carry the ball 20+ times per game and become that feature back we all want to see.
