When could the New York Jets fire Adam Gase?

New York Jets, Adam Gase

The consistent fan consensus has been the New York Jets will pack Adam Gase’s bag for his flight out of Florham Park. That consensus, though, is not that. Ownership has lauded Gase as a “brilliant mind.” Chris Johnson has been a very vocal supporter of Adam Gase, and for him to just switch gears and cut ties with him, well, it would take a drastic downfall. The likes of which we are beginning to see a glimpse of.

Analyzing past trends:

Last season featured a rarity in terms of coaching firings. There tends to be a coach fired in season, but never two. Jay Gruden was given a short leash heading into his 2019 campaign, and that was evident after his 0-5 start landed him without a job.

Ron Rivera (now Washington head coach), was also handed his walking papers near the back half of last season as well, which was surprising. Although Rivera’s situation lacks resemblance to this one, looking at Gruden’s situation, there are many parallels. Gruden was axed after an embarrassment of a start.

The team looked to show no progression after losing veteran QB Alex Smith to a career-altering injury and showed no growth in terms of offense whatsoever. See the connection now? The Football Team organization has been renowned as the most incompetent in all of football, yet even they could recognize when it was time to let go of their guy. Another scenario similar to this occurred two years ago with Hue Jackson. Jackson was a supposed innovator on offense and was given a fairly decent sized leash in Cleveland, another organization filled with incompetence. Yet they knew when to cut ties with him as well, they did hire another fairly bad coach in Freddie Kitchens, but at least they knew when enough was enough.

When will the New York Jets know?

It’s time for the Jets to break things off in the Gase. What will it take for Adam Gase to see that? Well, the first two blowout losses undoubtedly helped, but it’s going to take at least two more. If the Jets get blown out today, the pressure will continue to mount, and the walls will begin to close in. If they continue to show no growth, that will also be a reason to ax Gase.

Now, if the Jets are competitive in the next few games, then that could save Gase up until the bye week, then the Jets would have a full span to transition power. If Jet fans really want Gase out, they need to hope that they get torn apart in the next two to three weeks. If this happens, then the Jets could finally cut ties with Gase. In this case scenario, the quicker it is over, the better. This season is NOT a lost cause, but as long as Gase is around, it always will be.

The New York Jets have a Leadership Issue

The New York Jets are spiraling out of control, and it’s due to poor leadership. Adam Gase and Chris Johnson need to answer for their incompetence.

The latest news to come out of the Jets locker room is that Jets’ team captain Quincy Enunwa was fined for missing two appointments with the team doctor without notifying the team.

If that was the whole story it would be a quick and easy win for the Jets. They fined a player for breaking team protocol. Sadly, that isn’t the whole story though.

The whole story involves the Jets posting the fine on a monitor for the whole team to see. Airing Quincy Enunwa’s dirty laundry caused by personal manners to be put on display. Something that former players including former Jet Damien Woody found to be completely unprofessional.

So, Enunwa did what so many Jets players have done this year, take it to the media. He posted a long Twitter rant explaining the situation and how he felt slighted by the team. He has a right to be upset as well.

This also isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Former Jets’ backup QB Luke Falk and former Jets’ guard Kelechi Osemele have also lodged complaints about the way the team has dealt with their injuries.

Jamal Adams made his feelings on being mentioned in trade rumors known. Brian Winters screamed at his Sam Darnold and got into an argument with Adam Gase on the sidelines in a game earlier this season. Even Leonard Williams made comments about how much better the culture is with the Giants then the Jets.

These are all indictments against Adam Gase. A man who has failed to live up to his billing as a brilliant offensive mind this season. Under Gase, the team has not only fostered a toxic relationship with multiple players but has also not won any games.

That on its own should be more than enough for the Jets to say that Gase’s time here should be done. It’s a clear show of his poor leadership and ability to coach a football team.

Instead, the Jets CEO Chris Johnson decided to guarantee that his failed HC choice would be her another year. That’s unfathomable. It’s almost like the team is trying to destroy their reputation around the league.

This is an issue that needs to be dealt with as soon as humanly possible but can’t be. Why, because the Jets principal owner Woody Johnson is the American ambassador to England. Meaning that he is not around to reign this disaster in.

So, that means Adam Gase and Chris Johnson get free reign to continue to drag this team through the mud.

The only hope that Jets fans have now is new GM Joe Douglas. They have to hope that he will be able to wrestle power away from Gase or provide some stability to the franchise. That’s it, hope that one man can fix the damage of two still in power.

It’s a sad time to be a Jets fan. The team is imploding and all anyone can do is watch.
