    Rich Gannon understands, why can't yall? Feed the ball to CJ as much as possible and great things will happen. I like Greene, he really does suck at blocking though.

    Ya'll quit picking on CJ! I have been convinced that he is our best offensive weapon for years, but Wright is coming on strong and I dig that! Green<CJ.

    Yeah look at his average it is sooooo much better. Hell he can't even convert 3rd and short or get it in from the redzone.

    Here are Shonn Greene's averages in the games he's played in.

    W1 4.5
    W7 2.0
    W9 4.2
    W10 2.4
    W11 3.3
    W12 3.8

    And here are CJ's in those same games.
    W1 2.8
    W7 4.3
    W9 6.5
    W10 2.5
    W11 5.1
    W12 3.7

    So twice both guys averaged less than 3-yards. And twice Greene out ran CJ. And CJ out ran Greene 4 times, but thats his job so really neither guy is doing much of anything.

    Cause CJ rarely cares when he runs. Just fall down at initial contact. Every now and then its good to at least try to hit back at the D while running- thus Greene playing.

    I can't remember the last time I've seen a toss/pitch/sweep and it angers me.
