New York Jets: A look at Chan Gailey’s projected offense


The New York Jets are preparing to truly shock the football world come next season with just how different their team will be on the football field. With a revamped defense, some new play-makers on offense and a whole new leadership regime in place, the Jets could turn into a playoff contending team in record time due to all their incredible changes. One area that the Jets needed to dramatically improve in was on their offense so what exactly will new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey bring to the table come next season?

Since the Jets have dominantly been a rushing-oriented team the past few years, Gailey will most likely look to bring a more balanced approach to his offensive playbook in his first year with the team. Considering the Jets have added better receiving targets this offseason, they should have a much-improved receiving corps ready to take off.

Gailey has historically done a pretty good job at keeping his offensive system simple and to the point for his players. Since he knows how to get the most out of his players, the Jets could field a top offense thanks to their power running and upgraded receiving corps that has an infusion of speed now thanks to Devin Smith and Brandon Marshall.

One area that will probably take the most time for Gailey to get to execute efficiently will be at quarterback. The Jets made sure to bring in a familiar face for him to use as a veteran mentor for their quarterback corps in Ryan Fitzpatrick. Whether he starts or not, Gailey knows he has someone that guys like Geno Smith, Matt Simms, Jake Heaps or even Bryce Petty can go to for some valuable tips on how to get the job done.

Overall, expect to see Gailey launch a balanced attack that will feature some power running and quick, speedy passes to a receiving corps that will be expected to make big plays after the catch. This patented quick-pass system Gailey loves to deploy should work wonders on the Jets as they should hopefully be able to light up the scoreboard plenty of times this upcoming season.
