Jets Running Back Shonn Greene Says Team Needs ‘Change’
(NEW YORK) — Recently, some players on the New York Jets were very critical of quarterback Tim Tebow, according to an an article in the New York Daily News. It turns out that not everyone is in support of starting quarterback Mark Sanchez. Running back Shonn Greene thinks it may be time for a change.
The Jets are 3-6 this season with their season on the brink. The team’s offense has been one of the worst in the NFL, specifically in the passing game. The team ranks 27th in the NFL in passing yards per game, and have the 30th ranked offense in the NFL.
“Something’s got to change,” Greene told Yahoo! Sports. “When you get to the poitn where you’re 3-6, and losing and losing, a couple of guys are like, ‘Oh, what would happen?’ But guys at the same time guys have faith in Mark (Sanchez), so it’s kind of an up-and-down thing.”
Greene later said his comments were not an attack on Sanchez. He still did support Tebow though. Admitting that while he may struggle in practice at times, he supports Tebow’s ability as an NFL player.
Green is in his fourth season with the Jets and is on pace for his second straight 1,000 yard rushing season.
