PLAYERS: Shonn GreeneRex Ryan
TEAMS: New York Jets
Even though the win was nice and kept the team alive, Rex not happy in the closing moments of the game when Shonn Greene’s final score exposed players unnecessarily to injuries. “That was something that I was a little bit upset with because for the simple fact that we had to go back and play defense and cover a kick,” Ryan said. “Sometimes I’ve seen guys get injured in those situations. That was something I was disappointed in. I was disappointed in myself for not telling him. I’ll take the responsibility.” Greene said Ryan did not address the situation with him specifically after the game but did tell the team. Said Greene of the play, “I was just running.” Yes, yes … injuries are bad …. and we know Rex might not have been happy but Good For You Shonn Greene!! No one told you not to!  If Rex Ryan wanted you to fall on the one, he shoulda said it.  Your third score was the difference in me winning my fantasy matchup … just like it was the other way when MJD did it to the Jets two y

We’ll see how it is. Obviously, if you’re a running back, you have to be able to grip the football and protect it. So that’s something. Jason Taylor played with a hyper-extended elbow...

New York Jets Need Shonn Greene Now More Than Ever
