The Jets are returning to their “Ground and Pound” roots. There have been quotes, upon quotes, upon quotes, confirming this. Tony Sparano is leading the charge, of a team that is returning to a physical, smash-mouth style that suited them well in 2009 and 2010.

What is the first thing in a Ground and Pound? Ground. The Jets need to be a force at running the football as they were in ’09 and ’10 in order to be a success.

Shonn Greene is the leader, and we know what he can do. Personally, I have more confidence in him than a lot of guys do, but Greene still is who he is. However, despite a young depth chart behind Greene, the Jets need more.

Who they need is Ryan Grant.
