Adam Gase not coaching for his job against Broncos
Fans of the New York Jets may want to avert their eyes to the news that has surfaced ahead of Thursday night’s game versus the Denver Broncos. Despite previous rumors of his job hanging in the balance, Adam Gase is not coaching for his job against the Broncos.
Following New York’s lopsided loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3, there were murmurs that Gase could be on the hottest of hot seat in Week 4 versus the Broncos. However, it appears he’ll be safe for at least another week.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Jets aren’t considering firing Gase regardless of the outcome of Thursday’s game. The reasoning for their hesitancy to part ways with Gase is they believe moving on from him would be ‘counterproductive’ to the development of Sam Darnold.
Ever since Gase took the job in 2019, it’s easy to see that he hasn’t exactly been productive for the development of Darnold. Through the first three weeks of the 2020 season, Darnold has thrown for only 562 yards, three touchdowns, and four interceptions.
When it comes to Gase, he’s posted a 7-12 record in his first 19 games as the head coach of the Jets. One thing that may be keeping Gase safe from losing his job is the fact New York finished strong in 2019, winning six of their final eight games.
Many fans in the Big Apple have been calling for the Jets to incite a move that would prompt the team to begin looking for a new head coach. For the time being though, it seems as if Gase will be at the helm unless something drastic happens against the Broncos.
