It’s former Jets great, Freeman McNeil.
If we look at their numbers, using Freeman’s first 3 seasons, the comparison is quite interesting. Take a look:
Shonn Greene-2,360 yards
Freeman McNeil-2,063 yards
YARDS PER CARRY
Shonn Greene-4.3 yards per carry
Freeman McNeil-4.6 yards per carry
Shonn Greene-10 TDs
Freeman McNeil-9 TDs
Interesting, huh? Greene is better in two out of the three categories, and in the third, McNeil is not even a half yard better per carry. McNeil is an all time great in Jets history, and Greene is not too far behind.
Don’t worry about Shonn Greene. He is on pace to be just fine.
