Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum was asked about his team's running game:
Do you believe Shonn Greene is an elite running back, who you can build a ground-and-pound game around?
“Shonn Greene has played well in the past. Has he been to an elite level? Obviously he hasn’t yet, but with that said Bilal Powell we think is a good player, who is improving. Joe McKnight is going to see the ball as well and obviously the ball has been in Tim Tebow’s hands as a runner as well, but the running game is going to be focused through Shonn. He’s been a good player and, again, he hasn’t played up to the standard that he’s hoped, but over three years we’ve seen him do a lot of good things and along with Bilal we think there is a good foundation to have a productive running game.”
