Greene Said ‘Change’ Did Not Refer to Jets QBs

Posted by Randy Lange on November 15, 2012 – 5:17 pm

Updated, Friday, 7:25 a.m. ET

Shonn Greene wanted to set the record straight.

The Jets tailback made a point to tell the team’s beat reporters after today’s practice that he didn’t say what Michael Silver of Yahoo Sports said he said under the headline “Jets RB Shonn Greene is right: Time for team to hand ball to ‘terrible’ Tim Tebow.”

“I think the quotes were totally out of context,” Greene said. “It was that we’re 3-6 and things need to change. I said nothing about changing the quarterback, nothing about any single person on this team. I’ve been here four years and I never once said anything about anybody on this team.”

Greene’s agent had set up the interview with Silver on Tuesday. The first he heard of the piece was when a friend texted him the article after it posted Wednesday night.

“I was shocked,” he said. “First of all, the article was supposed to be a feature on me and where I’m at right now, and how it turned into me saying this about this person and that person, I don’t know.”

One of the key quotes Greene took issue with was Silver quoting him saying, “You feel bad for Mark, but at the same time you want to win. We’re not here to protect people’s feelings.”

“I never said that,” he said, adding he didn’t bring up QB Mark Sanchez’s name at all. “What I said was we’re 3-6 and some things need to change. We need to win.”

This Jet-on-the-media story comes on the heels of head coach Rex Ryan’s critiquing of the unnamed Jets who were quoted on Tim Tebow in Tuesday’s Daily News, both to his team and to reporters at Wednesday’s news conference.

“First you get yesterday, now today with me. It’s just ‘C’mon, like, really?’ ” Greene said. “We just want to play football. That’s all we want to do.”

Greene said his relationship with Sanchez was unharmed by the story.

“I let him know about it through a text,” No. 23 said. “We’re not worried about that. We’ve got a game to play.”

Thursday Injury Reports

It’s good to see big Kenrick Ellis moving around again. The 346-point nose tackle seems to be nearing a return to action after sitting the last four games with the knee injury he suffered vs. Houston and not even practicing the first three weeks after the injury. He’s listed as full-go in practice this week, along with 12 other teammates, and he could help in trying to corral ninth-year man Steven Jackson, the 240-pound feature back whom Ryan today called “a big-time playmaker who’s as big as he ever was, strong, determined, and still has speed and all the skills.”

Also on the Green & White I-report, WR Stephen Hill stayed home for a second day with an illness but Ryan said, “I’m hopeful he’ll be able to play” on Sunday. S LaRon Landry (heel) also didn’t practice, as per his usual late-week schedule. And RB Bilal Powell, listed as limited before practice, also was a DNP. Powell may have gotten his concussion Sunday when he was shoved by Seattle’s Malcolm Smith and fell into what appeared to be an accidental knee shot from Leon Washington as he was tackled after a punt return.

For the Rams, WR Austin Pettis (toe) did not practice today, while LB Mario Haggan (thigh), new to the list, and DE Eugene Sims (knee) and S Darian Stewart (knee) were all limited.

Alumni News

John Schmitt, Joe Namath’s Super Bowl III center, visited the Jets training center today, as usual impeccably clothed in suit and tie. Schmitt just celebrated his 70th birthday on Monday but he doesn’t look a day over 60. Maybe that’s because of the 60 hours he still puts in every week running his businesses.

Former Jets RB -KR-PR extraordinaire Bruce Harper will be among the sports world luminaries at the 16th annual “Teddy Dinner” at the Hilton Garden Inn on Staten Island, N.Y., tonight. Teddy Atlas, is, of course, the celebrated boxing trainer and ESPN Friday Night Fights analyst and a former Jet himself as a consultant in Eric Mangini’s regime. This year’s gala will benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy throughout the New York area from Staten Island to Rockaway.

Pass and Catch

A little unfinished business from Seattle that may interest only me:

Golden Tate had the first-quarter 38-yard touchdown reception from Russell Wilson and the fourth-quarter 23-yard TD pass to Sidney Rice. A TD catch and a TD pass in the same game … that doesn’t happen often, does it?

No, it doesn’t. The only other time an opponent did it in franchise history was on Oct. 1, 1961, when the Jets were the Titans, the game was in the Polo Grounds, the opponent was the Boston Patriots, and Gino Cappelletti had an all-around scoring day. Cappelletti threw to Larry Garron for a 27-yard TD on a fake field goal, caught a 32-yard strike from Butch Songin and kicked three field goals and three PATs, accounting for 24 of the Pats’ points in the Titans’ 37-30 win.

The Jets have also done it twice to opponents: Curtis Martin at Tampa Bay in 2000 (the “Flashlight Game”) and Freeman McNeil in ’83 at Miami.

It’s the first time it’s happened in the NFL since 2009, when Mewelde Moore turned the trick for Pittsburgh vs. San Diego, and it’s only the 12th time since 1960 that a wideout was the player who threw and caught a TD pass in the same game.

    Greene’s original comments certainly sounded to me as if he meant a change at QB is due. I agree. My only question to him would be, why did he sidestep from his original statement? Everyone and anyone who watches pro football, particularly NY Jet football would agree with his original comment. It aint no surprise. If there is anyone out there who believes Mark Sanchez is not a major part of the problem (and that is about as discreet as I can be) then they have been spending the past couple of years in some alternate universe.

    Ok Greene, we believe, you .. Rex should show as much passion with players to perform, as he did about the sewing circle gossip.. maybe we would be 5-4 or 6-3 .. Well folks Woody has heard the call of the wild, He went on record today,saying in his own words I didn’t sign on for 3-6 , sending a warning ,Watch how fast Rex decides Sanchez doesn’t give the Jets our best chance to win anymore , Maybe now get a statement from Mike -T, I seem to remember him bragging every week when the team was showing some promise. he’s been missing in action of late .. Westy showed stones of all our coaches, admitting we have a long way to go, Unlike all other simply bloviating, Shame he never had a chance to become a head coach,

    Not really that much to argue about any longer. Mark is not getting better, PERIOD! It’s becoming obvious that bringing Tebow here was never about playing but merely to revive merchandise sales that have been dropping since LT retired. The fact that Tebow is not even used inside 10 is quite telling. It seems Rex is afraid Tebow will ACTUALLY PUT POINTS ON THE BOARD! Then what will Rex do? We should do a DNA test cause last time I seen a coach coddle a QB like this was in Bantam’s and the QB was his son! There’s about 5 back-ups on the bench in this league that are better than what we got starting. Sorry to say cause I really like Mark. He’s without a doubt a quality human being. I would like to see him succeed!

    The only change I want to hear about Greene is when we either sign him to a cheap 1-yr deal or let him go, same goes for Keller, I’ll give them both one chance to shine or that’s it. Wouldn’t matter a bit if they were gone, they’re clearly not on the path to All-Pro status and we’d be better off starting over at both positions. In fact, we should start stockpiling picks and prepare to unload most of this sorry team. Like I said after last season, we only have about a dozen players who must be kept, especially if you don’t count guys like Revis and Holmes who we should trade, and Sanchez and Tebow who should go at any cost. Finishing 5-11, which would be my guess, might accelerate this process so I won’t blame anybody for rooting for that.

    He’s absolutely right. And hopefully now that we have Kahlil Bell the change will be at RB!!!! We can JETtison Shonn ( journeyman) Greene!!!

    I do agree that players should own their comments, but support those who are critical of this mess, even if they call names. I’d be Sanchez’ face if I were in that locker room. Players are busting their butts, especially on D, only to be shortchanged over and over again. Only losers would suck it up and stay quite. Winners want to win and some are simply frustrated because management and coach refuse to correct to obvious.

  7. By Another Tom on Nov 15, 2012 | Reply

    not too many comments that support re signing Greene..but He s proven to be a bruising runner. Not a fast and elusive guy but certainly a tough guy that could average 4-5 yards per carry with better run blocking..McKnight appears to be injury prone and not very durable..3rd down back/ kick off returner at best.Powell has shown some flashes of power and quickness..but cant stay on the field either. Maybe Bell will be a pleasent surprise??? May have to re sign Greene and Please improve the OL this off season

    Why is it that most of the Jets players are each week saying we have to change and start winning ballgames, but they never do change? Sounds like some one has a job and are afraid to lose it and keep making excuses. If you don’t change Jets you ain’t going to win and next year you will be looking for a job just like your coaches. Shonn Green step up and be a man under Tebow you would be doing as much running as you are now, maybe even more, and you might even score points once in while. Go Jets.

    Mark SANCHEZ and dustin KELLER are killing this team ,it`s like watching the WITTEN and ROMO show and the team knows it. remember this from sunday . the scores are tied 7 – 7 the jets have a second and goal on the opponents 2yd line in comes TEBOW out goes SANCHEZ chance of a touchdown 100%.only KELLER jumps early 5 yd penalty, 2nd and 7 out goes TEBOW in comes SANCHEZ, pass play, throw to right sideline front of the endzone intended for “guess who” DUSTIN KELLER ….but as usual it`s INTERCEPTED and goes the other way for 20yds. Right then and there the game ended and SANCHEZ didn`t seem to have a care in the world. THE PASS DID HAVE A BEAUTIFULL SPIRALL THOUGH ROMO OH SORRY I MEAN SANCHEZ…

    So how many points do you think SCHOTTY will put on us this week surely it`s gotta be more than the, 0 , ZERO , NILL , NADA , NOUGHT , that we managed last week. can`t believe i purchased the jets package on nflgamepass as not to miss a game this season . where is CURTIS MARTIN.

    It will be interesting to see how Schotty and Rex go after each other this week. Hard to get a feel for this game at all after all the nonsense and thats what it is from the media and Jets this week. Can the Jets players put this behind them and focus on winning a game. Thing that scares me is that the rams can get after the QB. I can only hope they finally win a game. After watching the Fish game last night still can’t believe we fell asleep against that team and lost.

    Look,if you are a professional quarterback you can at least throw 50 yards down the field,the quarterbacks who win move the chains,short passes,intermediate passes.How many actual bombs do you see in a game,this is not the old AFL.If you are accurate with a receiver with speed you will get your YAC yards.The quarterbacks who throw the football down the field have a running game,when the safeties cheat to stop run the quarterbacks go over the top.Any quarterback on an NFL roster can throw down the field,but the situation needs to present itself.A line that blocks, a back that presents a threat,receivers who are lead with the quarterback throws,all things leading to getting the ball down the field,not always about winging it.

    WR-M.Wallace / D.Bowe

    This is what I would like to see.
    Offense – QB-Matt Moore / RB- Bell (if he looks good) / if not Felix jones
    WR- Holmes-Bowe-Kerley
    Offensive line -Keep the same unit

    front three- Wilkerson-Ellis-Coples
    LB’s Davis-Maualuga-Harris-McyIntre
    CB’s- Revis-Cro

    In Woody Johnson, we may have the least ambitious capitalist on earth. I’ll bet anything him and his pals, including Romney, sit around swigging brandies and regaling each other with tales of when Newt strode the halls of Congress bloviating about “the creative destruction of capitalism.” And yet faced with one of the worst editions of one of the most perennially disappointing franchises in post-NFL merger history, Woody wastes his time on non-entities like Mr T and Rex and seems to understand nothing about the QB position and how it needs to be played in 2012. All in all, Woody’s enough to give capitalism a bad name. He must go along with most Jet players and the new owner must start over in New York, like the Nets are doing in Brooklyn.

    I like Rex, but his job should be in jeopardy. He’s obviously lost the locker room, AGAIN, and it’s too late to change now. It’ll take a new set of players and a new coaching attitude for a fresh start, and that’s not realistic. He’ll probably mature into a better coach, but unfortunately we might not be the beneficiaries when he finally does.

    Woody said “Player drafts and trades are decided by coaches and GM. It’s up to the coaches to determine how many plays a player gets. Careless player errors is the reason we’re losing. Sanchez will be evaluated like every other player.” Sounds like an owner with a hands-off approach and someone who’s putting a lot of trust in his coaches and GM. Also sounds like he’ll wait until after the season ends to “Evaluate,” rather than doing something now. Keep your seat belts fastened folks, and your sick bag handy too, the rough ride continues with no end in sight.

    I have been saying for a while that we need to stockpile some draft choices and use this year and NEXT YEAR to unload our deadwood and hopefully have a brand new start in 2014. There is too much to be accomplised in just one year plus another year of horrible contract numbers. BTW . . . When i say deadwood it also includes most of the coaching staff starting with the scouts and working up.

    Almost everyone here agrees that Sanchez and Tebow are nice guys and great teamates. Unfortunatly we need great players. Lawrence Taylor was not a great teamate and neither was Montana but they played when it mattered.

    Also Sanchez does well in practice since it’s against the Jet defense who can’t sack anyone on gameday.

    So much for Howard being the answer at right tackle “This game’s real mismatch will occur between Rams LE Chris Long and Jets RT Austin Howard. Proving himself not remotely the answer in the post-Wayne Hunter era, Howard ranks 63rd among 70 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus’ offensive tackle pass-blocking rankings. Howie’s son is PFF’s No. 4 overall 4-3 pass-rushing end. Long should eat Howard alive.”

    Attn All Jet Fans….This team and its organization has NEVER HAD A GOAL. A strong organization has goals, like being the best in its division, actually winning the divison and competing for the championship of NFL. Have you ever seen an organization that consistently doesnt win its division and compete for the championship. when that happens these teams just fade away never really being the top of the league.. The Jets un like the Yankees will never be the team to beat because not one member of the management staff think long term or even consider the effort to be a consistent winner….

    Thanks for your insightful remarks, Mr. Faulkner, on THE SOUND AND THE FURY of Jets players talking after each loss, which ultimately adds up to nothing. SCfromNY, russ, 40 year, and Tim, I like all of your points and I agree with you, too, klecko, about how few guys we have that are really worth keeping — and how pointless it is to raise taxes on the folks who are just starting to make enough money to think about expanding their businesses and hiring more people. Doesn’t mean a damn thing if we win this game, Ira, the entire team is collapsing and should be allowed to do so so that things finally change big-time at this woeful org.

    Allen O, I like the Mat Moore idea, I would like him to compete with McElroy and a high mid round pick for the starting job. I would like that 1st round pick to be best RB available. I would like the D to transition to a 4-3 with Wilk and Coples at DE and Ellis and Harrison at DT. The LBs Harris inside and Davis, McIntyre and a nice 2nd round speedster in the mix outside. Then, see what the open market brings for Sanchez, Tebow, and Keller then use those picks along the O line and on a prototypical TE. Only problem left? Holmes!

    Rex Ryan is such a horrible head coach. In 3 1/2 years he is 31-26. That .544 winning percentage puts him at 61st ALL-TIME for Head Coaches with 3 or more years as a Head Coach. Which incidently is higher that John Gruden (who everyone wants to replace him with) and Weeb Ewbank. He is also 4-2 in the postseason in 3 years. That’s six postseason games in 3 years. That number is better than any Jets coach in history in a 3 year span. His W-L percentage in the postseason is .667 which is tied for 12th ALL-TIME. That’s the 12th best W-L percentage in the post-season ALL-TIME! And who would you replace this horrible coach with?

  36. By scjoe on Nov 16, 2012 | Reply

    Ira, I have to admire your never ending optimism. The thing is St. L has a better offense then Seattle does. You have Shotty who is very familiar with the Jets defensive schemes. You have a very knowledgeable HC in Jeff Fisher, and you have a pretty formidable defense. On the other side of the ball you have a QB who can’t even reach that very average level of 50% completion, a core of WRs where no one seems to want to step up, and a defense that spends almost 40 minutes a game on the field. Not a whole lot of optimism there for me. Although, unlike a lot of others who would like to see them drop all the rest of their games for that high #1, I want to see them win at all cost. Just not quite sure how it is going to happen.

  37. By SCfromNY on Nov 16, 2012 | Reply

    Slowly many are coming around to the complete rebuild. Allan o’dane you are correct about keeping some of the players. I myself beleive many would be better as backups. Keller is Ok but IMO a better #1 is needed especially now. look around at all the TEs being used. Holmes can leave also (this is why i say it will take 2 years) In 3 years he averaged 44 catches per year. Does anyone consider that a #1 WR. maybe if we added his drops.

    russ; I have to disagree that the jets have no goal. They play for a wildcard! Every year they conceed the division to NE. All they talk about how many losses they can have and still be a wildcard. If mediocracy is your goal you will never do better. Usually you will come up short.

    joeydefiant, it’s said of fascists and others who suffer under totalitarianism that they can’t create anything (a romantic relationship, a family, a business, a work of art, etc.) because they’re locked in the past and have no conception of the future. Gruden is hardly the only candidate to replace Rex and Rex’s past record doesn’t mean all that much now, given the disastrous direction the team is going in the last 2 yrs. Throw in the fact that absolutely EVERYTHING Rex has ever tried with respect to offense, which rules the NFL now, has failed MISERABLY for us and there’s certainly a case to be made for getting rid of him. Though even I’ll admit that he’d probably have done a lot better if we’d gotten Manning instead of Tebow.

If they play CONSISTENT they could run the table here… 10-6 is their best chance of getting in this year.. 9-7 we’d have some serious competition with TIEBREAKERS determining who gets in… This year is complete parody.. Even this week some teams on the bubble will drop out of the playoffs.. Denver, Colts, Pitt, etc.. The Wild Card will indeed be WILD this year.. JETS SHUT OUT RAMS 20-0 OR MAYBE THEY GET 1 OR TWO FIELD GOALS! DEFENSE RISES TO OCCASION!! BRING ON NE BABY!!! OR ELSE PACK ITIN! SHOW SOME HEART LIKE THE KNICKS AT LEAST!!

    The players who need to talk would be a non entity,otherwise,Their play refuses to make noise,so their mouths have too.Rex needs to understand it is the players that hate you,will respect you more then your buddies who will laugh behind your back.As Michael Corleone said,keep your friends close,but your enemies closer.
