NFL  > New York Jets  > Why won't they give Jones and Washington the ball?
December 15, 2008, 08:40 AM
Does anyone remember the other week when Thomas Jones had TD's for 59 and 27 yards? Or the 67 yard TD run that Leon Washington had? Remember running for 200 yards for 3 weeks in a row? Why doesn't Schottenheimer stick to running the ball? Leon Washington scored on a 40+ yard run, and didn't get any more carries. Are they trying to save them both for the playoffs? I personally think that its horrible, and it bugs me every game to see them get 21 carries between the two of them, while Favre chucks the ball 35 times for 3 int's. When will this team let the RB's RUN the ball 35 times, while Favre passes 20 times? I think no matter what happens this season, the OC Brian Schottenheimer should be replaced next season by an OC that likes to run the football. Anyone else have other thoughts?
