Jets’ Adam Gase makes it clear ‘our job is to win’
It is no secret that New York Jets head coach Adam Gase has gotten off to a rocky start. He has managed to up the ante on himself to produce in the 2019 NFL season.
The Jet shave made headlines with all the notable changes they made this offseason. According to ESPN’s Rich Cimini Gase feels all the negative attention surrounding the team will disperse if they can prove to be a winning team next year:
“I think our fans care if we win or lose,” he said. “If we win games, no one is going to remember this, I know that. Our job is to win. Our job is to win. That’s it.”
Gase has caught plenty of flak this offseason after reports surfaced about his handling of the situation with former general manager Mike Maccagnan and the lucrative signings he made in free agency. As a result, there is speculation regarding his ability to lead this franchise out of the pit it has been mired in over the last several years. It seems he is attempting to downplay any current drama by turning the attention toward the upcoming 2019 campaign.
While Gase’s comments may provide him with some temporary relief, the criticism will come back ten-fold if the Jets continue to struggle next season. Despite all the drama, there is still plenty of optimism surrounding the team with all the notable additions they made through free agency and the 2019 NFL Draft. Gase has once again put the onus on himself to put it all together moving forward.
