New York Jets: Alex Green Highlights


After yesterday’s first set of signings, one of the newest members of the New York Jets is Alex Green. He led the Packers in rushing last year, granted he didn’t amass 500 yards (464). Then again, when you are part of an offense that is led by Aaron Rodgers and has all of those weapons, you don’t need much in terms of rushing attack.

Here are some highlights, so we have an idea of who we are dealing with here:

Here is his first NFL TD:

This clip is a TD from a September 2012 game against the Kansas City Chiefs:

And finally, some November highlights:

He has a nice burst of speed. His ability to rack up yards after contact will be an asset to a Marty Mornhinweg led offense. Green also has nice hands out of the backfield. He is very effective on screen passes. Imagine if we got him out there on some screens, and the Jets actually executed correctly.

Oh, the possibilities.

    Don’t forget he blocks very well also. Something Kahil Bell was unable to do on a consistent basis. It’s just funny how the media wants to criticize every Jet move. Suddenly Bell was great or at least as good as Green! Of course if they stood pat they would have said that the running backs was an area of concern and the Jets didn’t address it! And of course they would make up a story for good measure.

      Very true, they really can’t win can they?

    I’ve just realized what the jets need to do to help markie with his screen passes, in the event he ever takes another snap for the team. Just line up a defensive lineman, like Mo or sheldon as a running back the way Chicago used to do with their kitchen appliance. He should be able to hit them in stride and chances are it’ll go for a TD!

      hehehe good one matr.

    And Geno can set up the screen unlike Sanchez. Just don’t throw it to the DL!!
