I think Green is as good as any cohort in trying to get there just based on talent and drive. If he can hold up, he will be in the mix for an All-Pro consideration. If he can't, then bring in Brown and repeat & stir.
Your unbridled optimism is commendable, without a doubt.

I'm just in a wait-and-see mode at the moment, because we have so many aspects of the running game to work out. We have not had any positive confirmation that any of them will be successful at this point, so my cynicism is grounded in the reality that the proof is in the pudding.
