The Adam Gase Watch Has Officially Begun

The job status of Jets head coach Adam Gase is a hot topic of discussion. ESPN’s Chris Mortesen posted this ominous tweet prior to yesterday’s game against the Colts.

Mortensen also said something similar on TV prior to Sunday’s game. I am sure the Jets subsequently going out and losing by 29 did little to help Gase’s cause.

We are seeing all of the signs that typically accompany a coaching change. The team isn’t playing competitive football. The young quarterback is floundering. Players are opening questioning the team’s practice habits. The fan base is restless. The pressure is so great that the owner felt compelled to give the coach a public vote of confidence.

There are many cases where these things happen just before a coaching change. They just usually don’t all happen in a span of three weeks.

Last year Gase’s status felt unclear after the Jets got off to a terrible start. At this point I don’t think there’s as much drama. A firing seems inevitable. The only question is when it will happen.
