    I'm not too fond of taking a rb in the 2nd. I want pass rusher in the 1st and tackle in the 2nd. MLB in the 4th. That doesn't allow us to take a rb til the 5th. Those 3 positions are a must. Why create another hole when we already have plenty to fill?

    I was gonna make a post, including some crappy math about how Shonn Greene didn't play against 3 of top 10 NFL rush defenses to show that maybe the stats maybe a little skewed in his favor. But he also did play against 3 of the top rushes defenses w/ CJ.

    Then I also noticed he has one carry against SF, so I can't technically count that game. So I changed it to 2 teams.

    Shonn Greene sat out when we played these top 10 run defenses in the NFL. (Seattle, NYJ)

    Both of those teams held other teams to under 4 ypc.

    about 19% of CJ's negative runs came from those 2 teams alone.

    The we also play 3 more top 10 rush defenses w/ Greene. (#1 being Arizona, Denver tied for 7 and St. Louis at #9.) These teams also held other teams for under 4 ypc.

    13% of CJ's runs were negative or for no gain against St. Louis. 20% of Shonn's were negative or for no gain against St. Louis.

    17% of CJ's runs were negative or for no gain against Denver. 0% of Shonn's were negative or for no gain against Denver.

    46% of CJ's runs were negative or for no gain against Arizona. 25% of Shonn's runs were negative or for no gain against Arizona.

    So I originally tried to use this as proof of Shonn Greene not really being on the field when we played a harder rush defense, and maybe he would have a higher percentage against them but even when we Shonn did, he had a more positive runs percentage.

    So kudo's to JCBRAVE for the chart.

    I am still a CJ fan & instead of just trying to be bias and not post the info I gathered, I still decided to share. I really wish he would take a paycut cause I'd like to see him in an offense that will most definitely use him (along with the rest of our playmakers) better.

    and yes I know, TL;DR

    Now, let me be clear, I am for cutting CJ. Having said that, in the opinion of most here, its a passing league. How can one argue that pass pro isnt a reason to consider keeping a back after they scream about this passing league? How can one look right under your nose at Shonn Greene, who got about a quarter of the touches CJ got and stayed hurt all year and see that CJs durability isnt a reason to consider keeping the guy? Again, I think we should cut ties with him because of money vs production, but if this staff has ideas on ways to use CJ more effectively, I wont be angry to see what they have in mind.

    That was the first time Greene has ever had any time missed in the pros. I wouldn't worry too much about Greene. Besides, the general idea behind cutting CJ is to bring in someone else.
