Jets RB takes shot at Mornhinweg

Mike Goodson's season-ending knee injury cut down on Gang Green's options out of the backfield, but Chris Ivory isn't ready to go away from the run. "I would like to see us to run the ball more," Ivory told the Daily News on Monday. "I really feel like when you can run the ball, that opens up everything else. It would take a little (pressure) off Geno." "Going (forward), we have to run the ball," Ivory added. "I feel like it's a must." Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, of course, believes that points are generated through the passing game. ... "We run the ball," Ivory said. "I just don't feel like it's consistent ... Rex wants to run the ball, but I guess as the O.C. you see something different out there ... I think he's just a passing guy. The offense he runs is built for passing." (New York Daily News) Comment

Greinke could go in Game 4

At 0-6, the Giants have drawn the eyes of the vultures. [Several teams are] reportedly ready to see if they can pick off Hakeem Nicks. And with the receiver unsigned beyond the end of this season, the Giants might have to at least listen to offers. But if they do trade Nicks, or any other veteran player, they'll have to consider what it would do to their already fragile locker room. According to Brandon Jacobs, such a move would be a "dagger" to a team that already has enough daggers in its heart. ... [Maybe] it might make sense for the Giants to at least explore the trade market -- although for a rental of a receiver who may need several weeks to learn a new offense, several NFL sources believe the most Nicks would bring in return is a mid-round pick (third or fourth) in the NFL draft.

Knicks cautious with K-Mart

When reporters were allowed in to watch a portion of Monday's practice, Kenyon Martin had his shoeless left ankle wrapped in ice. [But] he and the Knicks were quick to downplay that sighting as little more than a preventative measure. Mike Woodson said Martin took part in the majority of the team's earlier practice - but the veteran forward continues to be held out of team scrimmages as a precaution to try to keep him available for the regular season and beyond. "I understand it, maybe the younger Kenyon probably wouldn't have, but the more mature and older Kenyon understands what the goal is," Martin said. "They need me in April and May and definitely June." Martin sprained his left ankle near the end of the regular season last April. (New York Daily News) Comment
