The Jets have obviously experienced a lot from the transition of last season to the upcoming one. Mark Sanchez has the fans buzzing and Rex Ryan has the city believing, for now.

One player that has been more dependable than anyone is Leon Washington, and if I had the opportunity to interview him, I would ask him about the new coaches, the addition of the new players and how he feels his role shifting on the team.

Leon, what do you feel you bring to the team week in and week out? Why do you feel they rely on you so much?

What is the team like under Rex Ryan opposed to Eric Mangini? Does his coaching style motivate you to take the field more? What kind of responsibilities do you think he will ask of you?

How has Mark Sanchez been adjusting to the team? Does he have promise in being the face of the franchise? How does the offense respond differently from the leadership of Brett Favre?

What do you expect from the team this year with all the changes that have taken place? Do you believe the team will come out with a vengeance?

What is your favorite responsibility on the field? Do you prefer running the ball or returning it? Have you been working on special teams in the off-season?

Do you plan on being a Jet for a long time, when the team reworks your contract?

Do you try to be a role model for the children who look up to you? Who inspires you?
