ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 12:36 PM) I think that the JETS will try but they won't try hard enough to win and they will lose even though losing won't affect our draft position much
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 12:51 PM) GAMETIME
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:57 PM) Lose the next 2

XvNukemHighvX Icon : (Today, 01:09 PM) That was just drawn up great, totally confused the protection. Looked like 3 lineman had no one to block and were just confused
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:10 PM) lmao Jalen Saunders becoming a good return man with the Saints
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:10 PM) I think the Jets gave up on him too quickly.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:12 PM) these f***ing playcalls are horrible
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:12 PM) another 3 & Out
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:12 PM) Harvin is tough, guy has a sprained ankle and isn't missing a game

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:12 PM) I want Harvin back
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) first time Pryor has made a play
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) Pryor making a nice tackle there
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) almost flipping that POS amendola head over heels
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) I still think Pryor will be a good safety for us, just put in a bad situation this season due to how bad we are at CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:14 PM) I'm excited for the season to end to see what changes are made
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 01:15 PM) Me too
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:15 PM) I'm already putting Pryor into the Miliner category = BUST
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 01:15 PM) If Woody cleans house it should be an attractive place to come too. Some talent and a lot of cap space.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:16 PM) incomplete
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) at least the D is shutting them down so far
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) That's good for you. Injuries derailed a promising season for Milber
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) but our O is horrendous
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) another 3 & Out coming up for the JETS O
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) We are really pathetic at CB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:20 PM) our O SUCKS

ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:21 PM) That 3 & Out was brought to you by Marty Morningwhig
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:22 PM) If you want your D to get worn down...you get a Marty Morningwhig led O to do that
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:25 PM) Marty Mornhinweg is restricted by Rex
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:26 PM) We will never have a good offense under Rex
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:26 PM) Unless we had a proven veteran QB and good OL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:28 PM) lmao @ brady
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:28 PM) Just keep hitting Brady
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:29 PM) I will miss seeing this defense vs Brady. Rex usually gives him more trouble than most do

Shonn Greene
RB, Iowa

War Room analysis
Inside running: Consistently attacks the hole and punishes defenders. Is patient; waits for blockers to open the hole. Shows solid flexibility. Is able to knock the tackler backward. Falls forward for an extra yard or two when going down. Does an excellent job of keeping his legs churning after contact. Is able to easily run through arm tackles and keep his feet against hard hits. Grade: 8.5

Outside running: Does not show the explosive burst to consistently get around the corner. Is able to make sharp cuts. Is very effective running through defensive back and linebacker tackles on the edge. Grade: 6.5

Blocking: Is not an experienced lead blocker. Gives questionable effort in pass protection. Needs work on his technique. Grade: 4.5

Hands/routes: Is only adequate catching the ball. Does not consistently keep his eyes on the ball. Will fight the ball at times. Is inexperienced running routes, catching only 11 passes during his college career. Is a strong and productive runner after the catch. Grade: 5.5

Durability: Shows toughness and competitiveness. Was only a full-time starter for one season. Needs to prove he can handle an entire NFL season. Grade: 5.5

Bottom line: Green's Iowa career is somewhat of a concern because he was a one-year wonder. He was a backup in 2005 and '06 and was declared academically ineligible in '07. He has many of the tools to be a starting tailback in the NFL, but his limitations in pass protection and lack of explosiveness could keep him from being a first-round selection.

sounds like a goaline type guy. Straight up the gut for a few yards. Leon will be our home run guy.

Shonn Greene-RB-Jets Apr. 26 - 10:19 am et

The Jets traded their third, fourth, and seventh-round picks to move up eleven spots in the third round to select Iowa RB Shonn Greene with the No. 65 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

The Jets aren't shy going for the players they want, giving up five picks and three veterans for two rookies in Mark Sanchez and Greene. It's expensive, but we love the fit. Greene, at 235 pounds, is a classic bruiser who will pound teams in the red zone. But he can also block and catch passes, making him a major dynasty sleeper. This crushes Thomas Jones' 2009 value because they will likely split carries and Jones will lose touchdowns, assuming Jones is even back with the team. Greene will probably take over in 2010.

It is better to destroy than create what is meaningless, so the picture will not be finished.

Seems a bit expensive but if we come out of this weak draft with a franchise QB & RB I'm sure all of us would take it in a heartbeat.

He's not a franchise RB. He's not going to out run anybody. he's a bruiser with some moves on the inside. We have a good O-line so he'll do fine. He's no Moreno.

He is a Bradon Jacobs clone. Will pound the hole (ROFL) and lives for contact. I can see him and Leon leading the attack for several years.

His burst will surprize you. Yea the speed numbers don't jump out at ya. He reminds me of a young bettis style. I wasn't a fan of his at first, but he grows on you as he just keeps banging.
He is alot more than just a goal line type.
I watched all his games since he was at Iowa. Hope he works out for Jets.
After last years #6, we have to have some luck coming our way?
He is just so truely humble...and is really hard to find today and that carries him

I'll take that next season

His report states a one year starter & seen limited playing time. I see this as a plus in a smash mouth RB.

In an interview on newyorkjets.com he answers a questions about his running style. Saying "Yea I love contact, I love the Violence" .. I think we know the kinda people Rex likes.

I'm a Big Ten guy also (Penn State) and I got to see Greene run a bunch and let me tell you, he can fuckin flat out ball. He reminds me of a Bettis/W.Parker hybrid. Thats almost the perfect comparison to how this guy plays. He's got wheels, don't let the skeptics fool you. I saw him outrun LB's @ OSU and PSU all season long, and his initial burst will certainly surprise. I'm with you Jetshenderson, I think he could be a great player. Rex Ryan and Tanny know what their doing.


p.s. can we please think of a new name for those two? Tangini was perfect, haha. Now what? RyanBaum? lol. T-Rex?
