After a month of hearing and reading how Ahman Green was obviously a goner, Green himself was quoted yesterday saying that the Packers are interested in having him back in 2010. Well, this obviously didn't fit the storyline the guys and gals on the beat had already written out - Jason Wilde in particular almost sounded like he was belittling Green on the D-List yesterday when asked about it, saying that it was "nice of Green to think that" but that, clearly, Green is done.
I'm here to tell people that Green is not only not done, he's ready to split time with Grant.
Look, is the guy older for a back? Yes. Did he spend two years in the injury wilderness down in Houston? Yes. But I went back tonight and watched most of Green's carries and receptions from last season and I'm telling you - the guy still has it, he just needs more carries. Not only that, he's by far the best short-yardage back on the roster.
Don't write him off. He could be the Packers' version of Curtis Martin, who everyone thought was done and who then came back and had two more stellar years starting for the Jets. He can do everything Grant can do and can do some of them (catching the ball, goalline running, etc) even better.
Yes, the odds are stacked against him, but people would be wise to actually go look at the tape - Green can still play. He just needs a chance.
