LOL.  He was a poor pass catcher/route runner so they moved him to WR?  He didn't do much, I will give you that, but he has certainly looked good enough out of the backfield.  I don't remember the backs running so many routes as swinging out and beating LBs anyway.

To be fair, Stephen Hill is both of these things and the Jets still drafted him in the second round.  Doesn't exactly make you think that the Jets are a good judge of talent and what guys are and are not capable of doing.  McKnight is a good kick returner.  That's about it.

I think that they intended to.  McKnight was hurt almost the entire year.  He came back and tried to tough it out, but he was dealing with that lingering high ankle sprain most of the year.  Near the end of the season he had migraine problems.  He was dealing with hamstring problems through camp and to the start of the season. The hamstring and a shoulder stinger he got fighting with the RB coaches kid let Powell jump him in the first place.  Then there were the weeks he had to practice at WR and CB because of injuries.  Pretty much a lost season.  He is the one guy that seems tailor made for Mornhinweg.

The whole being asked to play at CB was fun, but ridiculous. I almost put it as a sign of the coaching staff seeing him as a throwaway, instead of a potential threat.

He wasn't in 2009. He was slightly better than a washed up LT in 2010. None of that really means anything. If you like a RB with no speed, no elusiveness and no ability to catch the ball out of the backfield then Shonn Greene is your man!

 

Moot point. Greene's a UFA who's unlikely to return.

Sign him. He could be this season's Plaxico. A thankless turd who will have limited impact.

Their best deep threat was out most of the season so that really isn't a great argument. He's avg'ed 4.6 yards for his whole career too. 

 

Who cares what he averaged for his career.  Are these corny stats all your concerned about? Have you watched him play before? He's a slight upgrade to Greene, SLIGHT! Not a game changer, not gonna be leading us to victory either.  Annnd I'm not saying Greene is either or Powell.  But why bring over Giant trash when we have a back like Powell who would do an equally good job as a Bradshaw would next season?

Everyone does realize that the new offense is all about throwing the ball to the RB in space right??  Look at the Eagles RB the past 10 years, they all are fast and can catch.  No way we add a plodding up the middle RB.  We are going to add by draft or FA a fast RB that can catch and make poeple miss in the open field. 

 

I have never been a big Reggie Bush fan but he looks to be the perfect RB for the new offense.  Just saying.

I would just like to say, for the record, that I prefer corny stats to all other stats.

1000% agree on bush.  Throw some hot sauce on him and maybe he'll sign for cheap

It's hard to have an argument with someone who says that a player's factual performance doesn't matter because... well i should take your word for it.

Jacobs, now Bradshaw. These Giant rejects think they can all just talk their way onto our team. GTFO.

I wish to inform the gathered masses, that I am currently thinking about having a nice cup of Earl Grey.
