    NFL.com: Santonio Holmes, Jets WRs like new offense

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...content_stream

    With the arrival of offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, and backup quarterback Tim Tebow, a lot has been made of the New York Jets offense returning to its "Ground and Pound" roots in 2012. While that will likely be the case, the team's wide receivers are learning that the new offense can be fun for them, too, Jenny Vrentas of The Star-Ledger reported Sunday.

    The fun comes from Mark Sanchez and the receivers having the freedom to adjust their routes based on what coverage they see from the defense.

    "It allows us to have a little bit more fun," Santonio Holmes said. "And to know when you mess up, it's on us or the quarterback, because of a certain sight or certain be-where-you-are-supposed-to-be-at type deal."

    With an offseason shortened by the new collective bargaining agreement, Jets quarterbacks and receivers have had a limited amount of time to learn Sparano's system and get on the same page. That could help explain the low completion percentages during the OTAs and minicamp. Jets receivers and quarterbacks will get a little more work in before training camp when Sanchez brings them together for another "Jets West" passing camp in Southern California.

    "There is a lot of responsibility, but with all that responsibility comes a lot of potential," Sanchez said of the new offense. "When it works, everybody feels good and it looks good. It looks fluid, it looks effortless, it just looks easy, and we have the ability to do that."

    Sounds good, hopefully it will work

    Which off-season is the writer referring to?

    Makes me wonder how the offense the last few years worked.

    Little by little we're getting the "secrets" that were revealed at the charity dinner.

    Like a square peg in a round hole. Luck and skill are the two most important things in football. Schotty ran out of luck last season and the lack of skill got exposed. Rex & Mike found a new compliment in Sparano, now all the team needs is luck in coming together to win. (-;

    Good post, agreed. I was thinking the same thing reading this.

    I defended Schotty a lot, and to some degree, I still think he got a bit of a raw deal by fans, but the man really didn't do a good job last year at all.

    I'm still trying to figure out if he was influenced at all by Ryan, but I think Ryan let him run the offense how he wanted to.

    Under the new CBA players and coaches can't start working together until May. Under the old one they met as early as March.

    I honestly don't think Ryan had anything to do with the offense last year, other than making the final decisions on attempting 4th down conversions or whether to try a FG or punt.

    Absolutely. My only concern is & always has been who is the #2 QB and back up Center? Those are the two most important spots on the roster & I'm counting on Sparano to agree with me.

    Not sure I agree....

    Weaker O line including back ups of course.
    Lack of break away RB
    Until and unless Hill shows up, depth at WR.


    I like Tebow as our number 2 .

    Everyone loves everyone and everything in June. Everyone has Super Bowl aspirations. I'll reserve judgement until September, especially with Holmes.

    I'm guessing you love Tebow?

    I don't think we ever read player comments about Schotty that we are reading about Sparano, off-season or not, and that say's a lot.

    70 drop backs against the ferocious pass rush of the NY Giants? A HS OC would not do something like that

    Tebow seems like the obvious choice, but isn't the plan to use Tebow as a starter in an offense/special team player role? And what about Center? Last season was a joke with Colin Baxter.

    Probably in 2006.
