The Jets bestowed unbelievable trust in Shonn Greene this offseason, when they released Thomas Jones and Pro Bowl Guard Alan Faneca. They deemed Shonn Greene the starting running back. In his first game as the new star running back, 5 carries for 18 yards, 2 fumbles, and a dropped pass were enough to welcome the “War Machine” back to the bench. He also had a reception for nine yards.
This week, Greene will have to show why his post-season performance wasn’t a fluke. He will have to extend drives, pound the ball through the middle, show some burst, and HOLD ON TO THE BALL. When Greene is on, he can open up the passing game more, since the Jets can utilize play action. If Greene can rebound this week against the Pats, the offense as a whole should be more dynamic.
