Q: What do the Jets need to win a championship again?
EA: Since Super Bowl XLVII will be played Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, this is a good place for us to start.
The Jets have to shore up a number of holes, but the No. 1 priority has to be improving the offense. The NFL is all about points and playmakers.
Out of the 12 teams that made the postseason, the Colts averaged the lowest point total at 22.3 points per contest. While both the Ravens (24.9) and the 49ers (24.8) averaged nearly 25 points a game, the Jets averaged 17.6 points an outing. One of the most staggering statistics from last season is the Jets offense failed to produce more than 10 points in eight games.
Now that Marty Mornhinweg is in place as offensive coordinator, will
While the Jets have to determine what they want to do at guard, they also have to provide the quarterback with more talent at the skill positions.
The situation at receiver might not be as dire as some would believe. If

Q: In Coach Ryan’s first two seasons, the defense played eight-men in the box and press coverage on the outside. In the last two seasons, there has been more of a 4-3. Under Dennis Thurman, will the Jets go back to original blitz happy defense like their first two years?

I do anticipate DT blitzing more in 2013. He knows exactly what his defensive backfield is capable of and he has always held his DBs to a high standard. If Revis is back healthy, the Jets could potentially lock down the outside again with
The primary questions on defense reside at OLB and S. Like many teams, the Green & White would love to add an explosive edge rusher who the opposition worries about on every play.
In the weeks ahead, we will have DT join us for a special installment of “Jets Talk LIVE.” When we have that time set, I will ask Jets Nation for questions.
Q: What happened to "The Terminator” John Conner ?
EA: After the Jets released Conner, the Cincinnati Bengals signed the FB on Dec. 15, 2012. He appeared in the final two regular season games for the Bengals and did not record any statisticis.

Q: Do you think the Jets should get D.J. Swearinger in the later rounds since
EA: Albert, I see your love for the Gamecocks! I like Swearinger quite a bit too, but he is no secret and the South Carolina product might not make it past round three. The defensive standout was not afraid to step up at times in press man against excellent receivers. Swearinger, a 5’11," 210-pounder, has experience at both safety positions and he likes to deliver the punishment. We will have to wait to see what happens with Landry in free agency and
