    I'm really interested in knowing when Shonn Greene will be ready to play once again.I think we really need him in the backfield and not on the sideline.Jackie Battle is good but if we had Greene our rushing game should get even better.In the first game against Pittsburgh our rushing attack looked awesome with Greene,Battle and C.J. all carrying the ball along the way.Greene looked great until he got banged up and left the game and hasn't played since.I think our rushing game works best when C.J. splits the carries.With all three backs sharing the load and the offensive line doing its part we can move the ball.I definitely think our offense is better if Greene is part of the workload.Battle is good but there is a reason Greene is second on the depth chart behind C.J. The bottom line is we need Greene in there helping our powerful and bruising rushing game.I definitely saw a difference in the rushing game when Greene was no longer a part of the process.

    Battle is playing to the product of our offense. Teams know when Battle is in, it will be a run. The same will go for Greene when he comes back.

    Let's for once just throw a defense off when they get in the game.

    Why? I doubt Greene would have dumptrucked Manning like mother****ing Jackie Battle did today.

    Battle does his thing. Greene would be called to run up the middle just like every other RB we have because our coaches are clueless.

    $350 moolah to the person who gets me a good gif of that Battle Truck run from the side.

    would be a perfect time to throw a play action pass in there!

    I imagine JCBRAVE's greedy @$$ will get right on it.

    having Shonn Green might have been a difference between a W and L today. He's definitely a better runner than battle. Faster and just as powerful that reads the hole better
