Chan Gailey is a guy who loves to spread it out. We know this.

This is why a guy like Quncy Enunwa is so valuable to a Gailey-led offense. Enunwa provides matchup problems all over the field. At 6’2”, 225 lbs., Enunwa has the body of a tight-end but runs like a wide receiver. This allows Gailey to play four wideouts with no tight-ends more than any NFL team. How this will affect the returning Jace Amaro remains to be seen.

The versatility of Matt Forte will also do wonders in keeping the Jets more chameleon-like.

In 2015 when Chris Ivory was on the field, defenses knew covering the running-back out of thr backfield was of a lesser priority. Only when Bilal Powell entered was it a concern. Now, Forte or Powell can play in third-down packages.
