FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Although running back Shonn Greene's 39-yard touchdown run against Cincinnati in the wild-card playoff game last week came on a toss around left end, the Jets have spent the bulk of their time this season running right behind guard Brandon Moore and tackle Damien Woody. In fact, they led the NFL with 63 first downs on runs to the right.
It seems a little odd considering that center Nick Mangold just was named All-Pro, left guard Alan Faneca has been to eight Pro Bowls and left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson was the No. 4 overall draft pick in 2006 and is a superb technician.
"I just think we're a righthanded football team," Woody explained. "It's more natural that we're going to run right. Me and Brandon have the chemistry, but our whole line has chemistry. There's been many times where we might run it right, and Shonn will just cut it back behind Alan and Brick. You run right, and those blocks on the back side are critical. Our whole line has done a tremendous job along with the tight end and the fullback. It's a collective effort to make the run game go."
