It’s not really a matter of “if” Adam Gase will be fired by the Jets, but more of a question of “when,” as the team’s 0-13 record speaks for itself.
Gase was lucky to survive his first season as the team’s head coach, as he appeared to lose the locker room, with the Jets having lost seven of their first eight games. A few of the players that didn’t get along with Gase were traded away this season, but that didn’t really make any difference in terms of their competitiveness and results.
At this point, it’s looking unlikely that the Jets will manage to win a game this season, as they’re running out of chances, with only three contests remaining. And coming off arguably their worst performance of the season, a 40-3 drubbing by the Seahawks, Gase somehow still remains employed, making it look as if he won’t be relieved of his duties until 2021.
And even Gase himself appears to know that he’s let Jets owner Christopher Johnson down, in terms of the team’s performance, as indicated by comments he made during a press conference on Wednesday.
“He knows how I [feel],” Gase began, via ESPN’s Rich Cimini. “I’ve told him multiple times. He deserves better, especially with how he is with our players, our staff, coaches … anybody involved in this organization. I mean, I couldn’t ask for to work for a better guy. […] You try to figure out where things went wrong and what we can change…For him not to feel a playoff feel, of being competitive in December, it’s disappointing to me that we haven’t been able to do that for him.”
Not being competitive is an understatement. At this point, it’d be a complete shock if the Jets even managed to win a single game.
