New York Jets’ Greatest Strengths & Weaknesses Heading Into OTAs

Notable Strengths:

  • Coaching
  • Darrelle Revis
  • Mike Maccagnan
  • 2nd Season of Gailey’s Offense

Notable Weaknesses:

  • Tight End Position
  • Right Side of O-Line
  • The Muhammad Wilkerson Situation
  • Offensive Speed

Until further notice, the coaching of Todd Bowles and his staff is a positive for the New York Jets. Sure the schedule was historically soft in 2015, but nobody saw 10-6 coming.

On the negative side of things, Jace Amaro‘s return will directly impact whether the tight end position regains respectability or remains completely void of a solid player. It’s on the notables section, however, due to Chan Gailey’s love of 4 WR sets and Quincy Enunwa‘s versatile existence (making the position not critical).

Though things seem murky right now with Muhammad Wilkerson, I expect Big Mo to, yet again, morph into that team guy we saw last July.

One of the more under-the-radar negatives of the roster right now relates to team speed offensively. While the names are huge and the weapons are plentiful, their speed isn’t great. Right now, of the guys who’ll see the majority of time, only Devin Smith is a true speed demon.

Now let’s get on to the big show:
