Happy Friday everybody! I know it was only a four-day week, but somehow it made me more ready for the weekend. That said, let’s hit the ground running here.
In the Greene: Sometimes I just can’t help myself with some guys and I draft them when I probably shouldn’t. That said, I’m excited about Shonn Greene this year for the Jets. Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano told reporters Greene was going to surpass 253 attempt this season. Which was already a lot. When you think about how Reggie Bush rebounded with Sparano in Miami, I’m excited about Greene this year. And with quarterbacks like Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, you can understand why the Jets will run the ball a lot more.
A possible breakout candidate: You figure the Steelers will eventually come to terms with WR Mike Wallace, who is absent from team workouts right now. But it means extra work for Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders. The later is projected to be one of my breakout candidates for the coming season. Sanders had six receptions for 81 yards in the playoff loss to the Broncos last year and I expect that to be a preview of things to come in 2012. Of course, the last time I was this excited about a player’s playoff appearance I bought 600 Jim Lindeman cards following the 1987 World Series.
Whisenhunt wants Kolb to start: Sometimes what you want and what happens are two entirely different things. Ken Whisenhunt is going to learn that the hard way. Whisenhunt wants Kevin Kolb to be the starter. Much like I want to be in the next Batman reboot. Doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. But if Kolb can be the starter in Arizona, I would think about him as a QB2 … and then pass on it because I want to win.
Hey, who was the best quarterback Johnny Utah or Shane Falco?
