Harvin: 'Sky's the limit' for Jets offense going forward


Better late than never?

The New York Jets' offense has been stagnant for much of 2014 and has improved slightly since a few weeks ago, when Michael Vick was named the starting quarterback and Percy Harvin joined the team via a trade.

Harvin, the team's most explosive player, thinks the offense is still ascending.

"I think we've improved each week,'' Harvin said Monday, via Newsday. "I think the sky's the limit once we get a chance to really, really get to work together, as far as chemistry, timing, things like that . . . You can see where we're going once we all start clicking.''

Last week in an upset win over the Steelers, the Jets' offense amassed 275 total net yards, was 6-for-15 on third down and 1-for-3 in the red zone--not exactly mind-blowing numbers. However, they won the game, which is more than they've been able to say for the better part of two months.

They also didn't turn the ball over.

Harvin has been a bright spot, as he's hauled in 17 receptions for 174 yards the last three games, rushing for 69 yards on 11 carries in that span. He's also been his explosive self in the return game.

Sky's the limit for the offense, though? We'll find out.
