Kellen Winslow is a boost to get back for the New York Jets’ passing game, but what he commented on in the weekly press conference was their running game and defense.
Teams peak at certain points in the season and we’re to that point where you wanna make a decision on how good you really wanna be. I’ve been on a lot of teams. We’re a real good team defensively, and we have a really good run game. That’s what you want in the Playoffs and that’s what goes far in the Playoffs. So we’re right there.
He went on to say that he doesn’t see why the Jets can’t win them all. New York is currently sitting in second place, sitting two back of the New England Patriots in the AFC East with a 5-4 record.
With rookie quarterback Geno Smith at the helm, the Jets would certainly like to lean on that running game, the problem is that Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory haven’t necessarily been explosive this season. The passing game will have to step up if the Jets want to “peak”. Winslow would be a big part of that.
