This offense is going pass, pass, and pass some more in 2016. This is just the way they’re built.

When Mike Maccagnan allowed Chris Ivory to head to Jacksonville and inked veteran Matt Forte, he made the decision that this offense would ride or die with Fitzpatrick and Gailey’s air game.

Forte and Bilal Powell are perfect compliments in a way that’ll never tip the offense’s hand to the defense. They each play the same versatile role and are 100 percent interchangeable in any scenario. This was the exact opposite when Ivory and Powell changed hands in 2015.

Not only does the Forte for Ivory factor effect things, but the notion that this offensive line isn’t the powerhouse it once was, also decides how the Jets will play offense in 2015.

Everything about this offense suggests they will throw the ball more than anybody in the NFL.
