One thing that becomes very apparent is that the Jets never had free running recievers last year. If you watched Eli he threw like 10 tds last year to a wide open reciever, the Jets WR never seem to be able to beat anyone that badly.
Alot of that has to be attributed to scheme. Running 4 routes all ending in the same place is not a good way to get a WR running free. It can also be attributed to poor QB play, by either getting the ball out too late or too early. Hopefully what we've heard of Mark throwing to a spot and trusting his guys will be there proves true and along with a more vertical passing game we'll see more productive passing.
