3rd Greatest Strength: Brandon Marshall
Didn’t we list offensive weapons as a strength already?
Yeah, we did.
Guess what though? Brandon Marshall is such a difference maker that he’s a positive in his own right.
What happens when Brandon Marshall is on the field is incredible. Jets fans couldn’t fathom such a change simply due to the fact they haven’t seen such a difference maker out wide in Jersey since Keyshawn Johnson‘s early years.
What No. 15 does is completely change defensive gameplans. On each play, the question of a double-team or at least defensive shading is an important one.
If the defense looks to be bringing pressure while leaving B-Marsh one-on-one, Ryan Fitzpatrick took advantage. If they gave the look with a safety shaded over-the-top, Fitz had Eric Decker on the brain.
Not only did Marshall remind the world of how dangerous he truly is a year ago, he did with anger. His 109 receptions for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns were good enough to earn Marshall his sixth Pro-Bowl nod.
If the Jets have any playoff designs in 2016, at 32-years of age, Marshall cannot slip.
