On Wednesday, the Tebow experiment officially became Peter Brady’s volcano.
On Thursday, the cleanup process will commence with running back Shonn Greene putting some of the lava back into the mountain.
On Wednesday night, Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports quoted Greene as saying “something’s got to change” and characterizing the remarks as Greene lobbying for a shift at quarterback from Mark Sanchez to Tim Tebow.
Per a source close to Greene, the veteran running back plans to address the situation during Thursday’s open locker room session with reporters.
The source says Greene is adamant that he was referring to a “change” from losing to winning, that Greene never said there should be a change at quarterback.
The interview, per the source, occurred on Tuesday. (On The Dan Patrick Show, Silver said it occurred on Monday, and that they talked again on Wednesday.) It was arranged by Greene’s agent, not by the team.
This isn’t the first time a player has been candid with Silver before subsequently claiming that he didn’t say what Silver says he said. Silver is very skilled at getting guys to be honest and frank. When guys see their words in print, and when they start to get flak for saying what they said, it’s time to get the lava shovel.
So look for more from Greene today.
Yep, it’s a very good thing the Jets aren’t a circus.
