    Exactly who are manhandling machines in the AFC South besides JJ Watt?

    I'm not sure why people bother with listening to outsiders looking in at what we are doing. They are just talking heads. Unless you know the exact player, situation, team... It's hard to dictate what to expect like all these writers like to do. f them

    Maybe we could have gotten those guys in the draft. These guys are proven against professional competition.

    We brought Greene in to get those yards C.J. couldn't get for instance i think Greene was 15 for 15 in third and short yardage situations something that C.J. had trouble doing was moving the chains and extending drives.

    Now as far as Greene flat out replacing C.J. no because overall C.J. is the better back overall.This team is fooling themselves if C.J. has a good year and then they cut him in 2014 and replace him with Greene.

    Both C.J. and Greene have a role in the offense as RB but make no mistake Greene will never replace C.J. and do the things C.J. does.After all C.J. is a weapon on offense and still a threat on any play to take one back something Greene can't do because is more of a bruiser who will get you three or four yards.

    There is talk of the front office letting C.J. go in 2014 because of his contract but if C.J. plays well this upcoming season it would only make sense to continue using C.J. and Greene in the same roles in 2014.

    So Greene's bread and butter will be to come in wear down opposing defenses and get the short yardage pickups.Bringing Greene in to wear down opposing defenses and improvements made to the line should mean C.J. will have a pretty good season as well.

    However, we need to have a lead to wear down defenses..

    :cj: isn't too happy about sharing the load with greene.Maybe this will be the extra motivation needed for :cj: to prove he can still be effective and run well in 2013.
