Up until the last game, Jets fans have been VERY DOWN on running back Shonn Greene. With a career day this past Sunday, fans are quick to forgive or so it seems until the next time he has an average game.
Shonn Greene and Emerson Boozer only RBs in #Jets history to rush for 150 yds, 3 TDs in game — almost 40 yrs apart. Boozer, Oct. 15, 1972.

Jets’ Shonn Greene had a career day Sunday in a 35-9 win over the visiting Indianapolis Colts. His 161 yards on 32 carries were both career highs, and he played so well that the Jets’ coaching staff just kept dialing up running plays, leaving the pass plays for another day. via ESPN
Who need @TimTebow for a GROUND-AND-pound when Shonn Greene is running the F-Ball like this. We’ll see if it continues, though!
