ROBJETS Icon : (22 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Don't read to much into Mark in the preseason. He usually looked good in the preseason even in a Jets uniform.. Big difference from regular season where the 1st string defense is playing 100%.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) A lot of 1st stringers are just getting reps in and trying not to get injured. Its only the backups trying to keep or get a job playing hard every down. If preseason qb play meant anything then Matt Simms would be the starting qb of the Jets.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (23 August 2014 - 07:23 AM) preseason or not, our offense hasn't looked competent in a while like it does this year. our rushing attack should be very good. Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory could be a dynamic duo

FlyHiJets Icon : (25 August 2014 - 01:04 PM) Champ Bailey to be released by Denver. Considering how busted up we are and Patterson now being suspended, do we take a look?
FlyHiJets Icon : (25 August 2014 - 01:05 PM) Cro rumored to be gettin released from Arizona. We should definitely bring him in since he already knows the system and he's bett erhtan our 3rd/4th stringers which is where we're at at this point.

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:13 PM) Or street thugs
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:13 PM) f*** a CB problem
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:49 PM) need 1 more in the fantasy league
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 PM) Dimitri suspended for the rest of preseason. I'm sorry, I know we are bone dry at corner these days but they should have cut this prick on the spot . He's going to get torched regardless this year and I'd rather cut ties with any potential cancerous attitutudes before the season even starts.
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:34 PM) Where I come from you take responsibility for your actions. Not showing up for a game is cowardly and selfish. f*** him
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:36 PM) Also he doesn't know what the acronym AWOL means so he's also an idiot. No wonder he's never been anything but a journeyman corner is this league.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:11 PM) So how do you really feel?
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:18 PM) I think my last three posts pretty much summarize how I feel haha. He's making 1.5 mill this year and no call no shows because his feeling are hurt. Would rather you play corner azjetfan than this guy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:12 AM) Need 1 more for FFB!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:39 AM) Stephen Hill is going to get cut, guy sucks. Greg Salas is a better football player and deserves a spot over him
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 11:27 AM) So when do we show up to 115s house with pitchforks, tar and feathers?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 12:03 PM) i'd rather see idzik go then hill. fire idzik
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) Hill is such a disappointment. I really was hopping for so much when he scored 2 TDs his first game
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:11 PM) We need to get the J-E-T-S chant back this year to the way it was
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:13 PM) idk if any of u guys went to any of the games last year[Im sure some of u did] but im not a fan of the drumline leading the chant
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:14 PM) its not the same as 70,000 people doing it during every kickoff and after every score
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 05:43 PM) injuries and poor QB play aren't good for a WR to develop
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 06:08 PM) 115 and Hill. Lol!

Pressure Point: Can Greene carry load?
By Matt Williamson
Scouts Inc.

A weekly look at a player whose performance must improve in 2011.

A great deal was expected of Shonn Greene as the 2010 season approached, and I don't think he came close to living up to those expectations. Greene needs to step it up for the New York Jets in 2011.


Including three playoff games, Greene rushed for more than 76 yards only once -- and that game was against a horrendous Buffalo Bills run defense. In that same game, LaDainian Tomlinson rushed for 133 yards. In fact, in Week 17, while Greene sat out, the Jets' blocking utterly dominated the Bills once again, allowing Joe McKnight to rack up 158 yards on the ground.

Greene found the end zone only twice last year. Of course he wasn't alone in New York's backfield, but that isn't the kind of production that the Jets need from someone billed as a workhorse running back.

Greene is big and physical. He is built to take a pounding. He needs to be a volume runner to excel. Greene runs behind an offensive line as good as any as you will find in the NFL and is in an offense geared to take the burden off the Jets' young quarterback. To me, this should be the perfect combination for Greene to excel. He didn't last season.

Tomlinson far exceeded expectations early last season. He came to the Jets and did very well for the first half-dozen games of the season, which put Greene on the back burner. But Tomlinson inevitably wore down, and it looked like a perfect situation for Greene to put the offense on his back late in the year as the weather worsened. That isn't what happened. Tomlinson is a very good goal-line and short-yardage runner, but Greene's running style should lend itself to scoring more than four career touchdowns. New York rarely gives Greene the football in the red zone.

Greene's liabilities in the passing game also hurt him. He didn't catch a regular-season pass as a rookie in 14 games and racked up just 16 receptions in 15 regular-season games last year. He can't run a variety of routes, nor does he have naturally soft hands. In protection, he is average at best.

Greene was much more impressive as a rookie -- when he averaged an even 5 yards per carry -- than he was last season in more of a featured role.

This season sets up well for Greene to be the Jets' bell cow runner. Tomlinson, an 11-year veteran, has to be at the end of his fantastic career and should not be counted on to fill a big role in 2011. McKnight could get more touches, but his running style is very different from Greene's. At most, McKnight will be a change-of-pace guy and a passing-down specialist, although the latter role probably still belongs to Tomlinson.

Many found it curious when the Jets used a fourth-round pick on Bilal Powell. I don't find it curious, at all. Powell was a tremendous value at that point of the draft. Although he's a bit smaller than Greene, Powell could give the Jets a reliable, powerful option and seriously push Greene for playing time. He might already be the better receiver and does have an excellent low-to-the-ground running style that fits New York's offense. Will all four running backs make the roster in addition to the Jets' fullbacks?

Dominate running backs are a thing of the past , the better players are stacked on defense in today's game . when Sanchez's game goes to the next level the run game should break out .

This is the most sense you've made in at least a year. Great work! haha

You are correct though. The way the NFL has gotten soft and ensuring QB's good health the passing game is where it's at. Running is still important (to keep teams honest) but it can't really be a focal point like it used to be. Refs are calling more holding calls now more then ever before. The passing game is the key. You just gotta have it.
