Gang Green Nation takes a look at our running back situation, and how the off season has affected the position going into 2012. Take a look at the post by clicking on “2012″. Here’ s a teaser:
It feels like more than a decade since there was a draft where we didn’t take a RB. Everyone says Rex loves his CBs, but RB is the position he has always drafts without fail. This draft strategy compliments Rex’s ground and pound mentality. First he drafted Shonn Greene to compliment and replace Thomas Jones. Then came Joe McKnight to replace Leon Washington. In 2011, we picked Powell to give Greene a rest from all the punishment he takes throughout the year. We can’t forget John Connor either. He was brought in to replace the future Hall of Famer, Tony Richardson. Last April, the Rex/Tanny connection brought in Terrance Ganaway.
I don’t want to give away too much, read it. But it is a good take on this year and the future, with a lot of it being based on the Terrance Ganaway production.
Alan has been a passionate Jets fan since 1985. Obviously, that means he is a glutton for punishment, as he has suffered through many Jets disappointments. He remembers Mark Gastineau's late hit in the 1986 AFC Divisional Playoff game like it was yesterday. There have been many more failures than successes, but through it all, Alan has remained true to the Gang Green. He has been blogging for the Jets on various websites for the past 5-6 years. He lives and breathes the NY Jets all year round, and is committed to bringing the Jets passion to "The Jet Press" on a daily basis. Alan has also been recently named to the Pro Football Writers Association. Like what you read? Hit him up on twitter at @thejetpress
