Of course, you have to be at least competent on offense. Which I'm not sure the Jets are at this point. But, I think they could be - even with the current personnel - if they have an OC who is creative enough.
I also believe all teams should be disproportionate to a degree. We're obviously a defensive team, but our offense is flat out neglected. Look at other similar teams-SF, offense has Gore and Davis. BAL-Ray Rice and Boldin. PIT-Wallace, Mendenhall, Brown, Miller. We have Holmes, who I believe is a decwnt #1 WR and a great #2 followed by peanuts. Greene is average, slow, and goes down easily for his size. Hill is a rookie. Keller is great sometimes, then disappears for weeks. Bottom line is if you're going to field a stellar defense, you still need one or 2 stars on the offensive side of the ball to be competitive.
