The New York Jets have plenty of talent on the offensive side of the football. In the beginning of the year, the offense could not find its way and certainly shared responsibility for a 2-3 start that greatly hurt their chances at the playoffs and a Super Bowl run. As of recent it seems that their weapons have become comfortable and effective with the Jets winning six of their last eight.
Santonio Holmes is a major asset for this team and is crucial for their success for the rest of the year. Holmes has seven touchdowns this season which is the most he has recorded since 2007. WIth a touchdown in each of his last three games, Holmes looks like he's only getting better as the season moves forward, which is a huge positive for the Jets passing attack.
Plaxico Burress was a high-risk acquisition this offseason and he has more than earned his keep. Burress also has seven touchdowns on the year and is in many ways responsible for the Jets being in control of their own destiny.
When the Jets were 3-3, they hosted the 4-1 San Diego Chargers. In a pivotal game for the Jets, Burress was able to catch three touchdown passes as the Jets edged the Chargers 27-21. In Week 12, Plax showed more heroics as the Jets were 5-5 and fighting for their playoff lives. Burress had a touchdown catch and a leaping one-handed catch to convert on a crucial 3rd and 11 with under two minutes to play. The Jets would go on to score a touchdown on the drive and win the game.
Burress has shown he has found his niche in the Jets offense. He has been gracious (publicly) when seemingly not a key to their gameplan, and has been clutch when his number has been called. His efficiency in the red zone has been his biggest asset and the Jets have found a way to utilize him to his full potential.
Dustin Keller needs to be active for the Jets to continue progressing into a Super Bowl contender. Keller has been relatively efficient as of recent and the Jets offense is at its best when he is making plays. Keller seems to be someone that can get Sanchez into a groove, and it is important that these Jets weapons can get and keep their young quarterback confident over the course of the game.
All three of these players give the Jets an aerial attack that must be respected. Now that the players are acclimated with each other, after the addition of Plax, it seems this group can be dangerous come playoff time.
