Previously we discussed how the Jets defense must improve by being able to set the edge.  Today, we turn our attention to the offensive side of the ball.

What do all great offenses have in common? Who was the Colts offense? Peyton Manning and his right arm, and everything else came off of that. Who is the Patriots offense? Tom Brady, and the rest branches off.

Look at the Giants. What are they? A downfield passing team. What were the Jets in 2009 and 2010? An offense that was based on the strong running attack, and play action passing that played off of that.

What do all of those, as well as any other great offense you can think of, have in common? You could easily identify what they are about. They had an identity, and worked hard at performing well based on that identity.

For us, it played out in the statistics. Turn the page and see.
