The NY Jets could be looking to move on from Adam Gase as soon as Friday, per multiple reports.
The NY Jets are set to take on the injury-riddled Denver Broncos this Thursday night. And that game between two woeful 0-3 football teams could be the last that Adam Gase ever coaches as a member of the Jets’ organization.
Multiple reports have come out in recent days indicating that the Jets could be looking to move on from Gase this week, especially if the Jets lose on Thursday.
First, it was a report from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen that came out on Sunday that indicated that the Jets brass would be “monitoring this week closely” to determine whether or not Gase should remain with the franchise.
Mortensen said that the team’s upcoming game against the Indianapolis Colts — a game they would lose in embarrassing fashion 36-7 — would be important, but that this Thursday’s game against the Broncos would be “more telling.”
This, of course, led to speculation that Gase might not have much of a future in New York. And since that report, multiple other media members have come out indicating the same thing.
FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd said on his show, “The Herd with Colin Cowherd,” on Monday that Gase would be fired if the Jets lose this Thursday.
“I am told with Adam Gase that [if the] Jets lose Thursday, he’s done.
I’m told the Jets have already reached out to a top coach agent and started asking questions. The Jets have started the process.”
Now, it should be noted that Cowherd doesn’t have the best track record with reporting news — that’s been well-documented to this point. However, another media member with perhaps more validity came out on Tuesday supporting Cowherd’s initial report.
Another source seemed to back up Colin Cowherd’s claim about Adam Gase and the NY Jets.
Colorado radio host and NFL analyst Benjamin Allbright took to Twitter to state that he said the exact same thing during his pre-game show for the Broncos on Sunday.
Speaking candidly for a moment, Allbright is almost always right about things like this so he’s certainly someone who should be trusted.
That’s now three different reports all stating the same thing — that Gase will likely be fired if the Jets lose on Thursday.
Facing an 0-3 Broncos team that will be traveling across the country on a short week is already a game that should be won.
Throw in the fact that the Broncos are just as injured as the Jets and will be starting Brett Rypien, an undrafted free agent who threw the first eight passes of his NFL career last week, and you have a must-win game for the Jets.
But seeing as they haven’t even looked competitive in the slightest in their first three games, that seems to be asking a lot. Even Vegas as caught on with the Jets 3.5-point underdogs despite the odds being stacked against Denver.
Adam Gase’s days in New York seem to be numbered and with a long week ahead of the team’s Week 5 meeting with the Arizona Cardinals, Friday might be the perfect time to officially pull the plug.
Don’t be surprised to see Gase fired by this Friday.
