Yes we need a GM, O-Cord., QB, WR, LB's, and two safeties. But I was wondering who will be the back next year. Greene is FA and hopefully he is done with us as I am not a fan. Powell showed some good things but I do not think he is the answer.

Do we draft a back?

Bernard -UNC
Ellington-Clemson
Taylor-Stanford
Ball-Wisc.

All four have great promise but will they be available in 2nd or 3rd rd?

Free Agents worth looking at

Chris Ivory-My choice but is restricted FA
Reggie Bush?
Rashad Jennings
Andre Brown (but is exclusive)

I'd love for the Jets to take a run at someone like Justin Forsett who is a good speed back that can catch out of the backfield. Between him and Powell they'd be fine drafting someone like Theo Riddick in the middle rounds. I'm about done with McKnight and Greene.

Powell and a Draft pick.

Although there's no elite runner imo I really like the mid rounders (2nd-5th).

Lacey
Ball
Taylor
Ellington
Bell
Michael
Barner


...Bernard might be gone by their second pick....but who freaking knows pre-combine.

I would also try to resign Greene (for the right price), who is an underrated RB imo. He's a perfect complimentary #2.

Trade for Ben Tate, and install the Kubiak zone blocking scheme that has produced guys like Arian Foster, Alfred Morris, Olandis Gary, Mike Bell, Terrell Davis.

Speaking of the Texans...any of Kirksey, Harris, or Dorrell getting OC talk? I guess they can't yet what with playoffs to play and all..,.

A mid-rounder or a free agent. Greene is of the most one dimensional backs in the league

If it was 2010 again the Jets would and should be all over it, but new GM will have to decide the direction. Jackson is the man.

Powell, Greene, draft Riddick in 5th.

Im in the minority, but I still really like Greene. He's not a #1, but he's a great complimentary #2. Really wears defenses down in the 4th.

Yes really. He's better than Greene in every facet of being a RB including the smaller aspects of the game such as staying healthy within games, catching passes, not fumbling, and pass protection.

...not to mention their impressive collection of running talent: Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, Anthony Dixon, Brandon Jacobs, and THEN they draft LaMichael James.

It's almost like they were aware of the toll a Run-First team takes on it's running backs, and planned accordingly. Hmmmmm.

Ummm how about metric's like I dont know... touchdowns 2012: Greene 8 Jackson 4 Maybe Rushing Yards 2012: Greene 1,063 Jackson 1,042 YPC 2012: Greene 3.9 Jackson 4.1 Average Rushing yard per game 2012 Greene 66.4 Jackson 65.1

Bottom line Greene was the 14 ranked RB in the league this year and S.Jax is 15. I am not say Greene is the solution but substituting him with the same player is not a upgrade

They're not the same player when you look at more than just the rushing aspect of being a RB. Jackson is a way more useful in the passing game, and fumbles less than Greene as well.

I would take Jackson in a heartbeat but I don't think either are worth any real money, especially in a throw away season

Kind of like our 2008-2009 OL? Yea remember how awesome that group was? To bad we never replaced the 4 veterans that either blocked or ran behind them in TRich TJone Faneca and Woody! That leadership has never been replaced, and IMO that is 75% of this teams problem, lack of leadership inside the locker room amongst players.
