Approximately a week ago, we brought you the State of the Defense Address. On this Friday morning, we bring you our up to the minute state of the offense address.

The offense is on the right track, despite the off day at OTAs yesterday. There is a new attitude, brought about by new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. His playbook, according to all accounts, is much simpler than the previous offense administration.

He is no-nonsense, even this early in workouts. When guys make mistakes, including Tim Tebow, he is on their case right away. Even Hayden Smith, who has never played football before, has not escaped the ire of coach Sparano. He is focusing on not turning the ball over, which the Jets have done far too much lately.

He is also returning to the physical style of offense that head coach Rex Ryan loves. The “Ground and Pound” has brought the Jets their greatest success in the Ryan regime, and bringing it back to the forefront is exciting.

    Solid analysis.  I will say that I am not really all that concerned with the Tebow situation.  I really think the Jets staff know what they want to do with this guy, and it doesn’t involve a QB competition.  And I really believe Sanchez is primed and motivated to shove all of the criticism up the collective buttocks of his many non-believers.
     
    The one thing I am concerned about is the WR group.  Not only am I still concerned about Holmes keeping his head on straight, but I also fear a little too much is being expected from Stephen Hill.  There are exceptions, of course, but rare is the rookie WR who comes in and is an immediate impact player.  It generally takes them a couple of seasons to really make a big impact, and I’m talking about players who played in passing systems in college, not Hill, who has a further hill (no pun intended) to climb in learning pro-style route trees.  I like the group they have, but they are young an inexperienced…would be nice to have one more veteran.

      Glad you liked my take Ron, and thanks for reading.

      I hope you are right on the Tebow thing. From your lips to gods ears, would love to see Mark shove all that criticism where
      the son don’t shine on these reporters.

      You could be right on Hill, and Rex apparently indicated in post workout presser that Tanny might be on the lookout for one more receiver. Maybe the
      veteran that you feel they need.
