To continue this Shonn Greene Saturday morning, a look at Shonn by the numbers. We take a look at how Shonn fares compared to other big name backs selected in the draft with him, 2009. First, here are Shonn’s numbers for comparison:
2,360 yards rushing, 4.3 yards per carry.
Now, here are the other backs:
Knowshon Moreno:1,905 yards, 4.1 yards per carry
Beanie Wells:2,237 yards, 4.2 yards per carry
Donald Brown:1,423 yards, 4.2 yards per carry
LeSean McCoy:3,026 yards, 4.8 yards per carry
The point? Shonn Greene has faired pretty well for himself. He has better numbers than 3 out of 4 of these guys. And even McCoy, who we all see as a gamebreaker, doesn’t even have 1,000 yards more than Shonn.
He’s not so bad, Shonn Greene. Give him a chance.
