No one on the Jets' offense has had a great game Monday night -- six first downs and a single first-down conversion in a sloppy loss to the Ravens tend to lend themselves to poor statistical performance.

Shonn Greene might be having the worst night of anyone though. The feature back (and early round fantasy pick) carried the ball five times for 18 yards and fumbled twice, one which he recovered.

Following the second fumble with just under five minutes remaining the first half, Greene disappeared from the field for nearly two quarters, likely as a result as his inability to hold onto the ball.

Unfortunately for him, his first play back was a swing pass from Mark Sanchez that he promptly dropped, leading to a third down that featured Sanchez getting rocked for a sack and eventually testing out his knee on the sideline.

And, as near confirmation of the coaching staff's unhappiness with Greene, it was LaDainian Tomlinson in the backfield for the team's final (and failed) drive.

We won't be able to actually confirm that Greene was being punished until Rex Ryan's postgame press conference (which may or may not feature an expletive if the Ravens hold on), but it seems safe to say that he won't be having the most fun week in practice.

On the bright side, Tomlinson (11 carries, 62 yards; 1 catch, 7 yards) looks like he could fill in if Greene decides he's not ready for big-boy work just quite yet.

Rex should begin by punishing himself. Because his big mouth motivated Ray Lewis as even he has seldom been motivated!

Shonn Greene likely punished for fumbles

This is a shocker.  Ya know L.T. can catch, ya know he's a veteran target for a rookie (BUM!) QB, and ya know there would be questions about the offense and the running game with the changes in personnel this year.  Again, another dumb offseason move by the Jets this time with Thomas Jones, so brilliant that a "washed-up" L.T. may have to make this offense move the way it's supposed to.  The #2 worst offseason move behind the McNabb trade shows on Monday night as well.  Jones didn't put up big numbers, but made the most of the touches he got, showing everyone that "he's still got it."

If Rex punished everyone for making a mistake, the practice squad would have ended up finishing the game.

Ironically enough, only then would I have had confidence in them scoring.
