The New York Jets have had a rough season and much of the heat is on head coach Adam Gase. Here is why Gase needs to be fired immediately.
Head coaches in the NFL have a short period to show optimism before they are put on the hot seat. Many football experts view New York Jets head coach Adam Gase as a quarterback guru dating back to his time working with Peyton Manning.
It has been anything but smooth sailing for coach Gase leading the Jets to a 1-5 record through the first seven weeks of the season.
When the Jets hired Gase in the offseason, they should have understood the coach coming in was walking mediocrity.
His record in Miami was 23-25, hovering over a .500 record the whole time he was there. They got to the playoffs his first season going 10-6, but it just went downhill after that.
In Miami, Gase had issues with numerous quality players in the locker room such as Jay Ajayi. He wanted to trade Ajayi immediately after success because he thought the young running back was an issue in the locker room, which several players denied.
One common theme throughout Gase’s whole tenure with the Dolphins is the attempt to remove the best players from the equation. This should worry Jets fans as he did not even agree with the Le’Veon Bell or C.J. Mosley signings at the beginning of the season.

Gase thought the team gave them too much money, but it is obvious these were good signings to be the building blocks of the franchise for the future. Both players have been tremendous players and leaders for the team on both sides of the ball.
It can be argued that the loss of Mosley alone caused the Jets’ implosion against the Buffalo Bills in the second half of the Week 1 game.
Many analysts did not believe Adam Gase deserved this opportunity right away again as a head coach. He proved it to many people immediately at the press conference welcoming him that no one reads into most of the time.
The slightest improvement in Sam Darnold‘s play would warrant the hiring and a longer stay for Gase in New York. His one main job as the head coach was to take Darnold under his wing, but instead, Darnold admitted he was “seeing ghosts” against the New England Patriots defense in a 33-0 loss this past week.
When your team has a top-five running back, then he needs to be involved in almost every single play. A patient runner like Bell needs time to evaluate where he should go when he gets the ball, and it is not possible if the offensive line does not do its job.
Bell gets 16 carries a game, but the blocking schemes aren’t drawn up well enough to give him holes to run through.
All Jets fans wanted was a head coach that makes players “do their jobs,” as Bill Belichick requires for the Patriots. Gase has failed in almost all fronts and needs to go immediately. The Jets have no future that involves a .500 head coach without a vision to build a solid foundation for the future.
A fiery head coach that will sacrifice anything for its players is necessary to fit the franchise.
