Jets’ Offensive Line Could Be Difference In Successful 2016

With all of the recent quarterback talk, the overwhelming attention has been taking off the New York Jets real offensive issues.

This extraordinary yet brutal of game of football is played from the inside out. It’s a game that starts in the trenches first. It then trickles its way out onto the perimeter.

It’s always been this way and will always continue on as such. This is the case despite this new age era of high flying pigskins traveling through the air at record pace.

It seems Mike Maccagnan understands this age old philosophy from a defensive perspective, but when the offensive trenches come into the conversation, things get a little questionable.

Muhammad Wilkerson, Leonard Williams and Sheldon Richardson form one of the best defensive lines in football. These beasts do the dirty work. They take on double teams and allow David Harris and company to roam free on the second level. These guys also get to the QB allowing Darrelle Revis, Calvin Pryor and the rest of the defensive backfield an easier Sunday.

What can we say about the New York Jets offensive line?

The only possible thing we might be able to say is if Ryan Clady actually stays healthy, they could be solid.

That’s pretty sad for a team who has aspirations of bettering their 10-6 campaign in 2015.

We already know the names and faces, but for this particular spot we’ll go through each guy and examine their 2016 prospects. We begin with the undoubted leader of the group.
