While the Jets seem rather committed to Greene for the foreseeable future everybody knows Tony Sparano loves to run the ball, and if Powell is the hot hand he will most definitely steal touches and cement his role in the new run based offense. Greene will always get his carries around the goal line and in short yardage situations but the pressure is on for him to perform early and often, the opportunities will be there and he must take advantage to retain his spot on the depth chart.
I’ve always been a Joe McKnight fan because I realize the things he can do with the football. He can be a solid ball carrier and a true weapon out of the backfield, but his mental mistakes and pass blocking ability may limit his touches late in close games. I think McKnight still gets 6-10 touches a game both catching the football and on draw plays and misdirection, hopefully having significant impact in his given opportunities.
