Adam Gase: We have a long way to go

The Jets are 0-2 after watching third-string quarterback Luke Falk finish out a 23-3 loss to the Browns that felt like a much more lopsided blowout given how little chance they had to come out on front against Cleveland.

Injuries have knocked several starters out of the lineup, the offensive line was a sieve, the team committed 12 penalties to ensure that any positive momentum would have as short a shelf life as possible. It was all enough to make you wonder if the entire team came down with the mononucleosis that’s sidelined quarterback Sam Darnold.

There’s a trip to New England on the docket for Week Three and the entire situation led to head coach Adam Gase fielding a question about what message he’ll send to his team this week.

“It’s familiar territory for me,” Gase said. “We have to get better at what we’re doing. We can play so much better than this. The details of what is going on in all three phases can get a lot better, and it’s going to have to. We have a long way to go. We have a lot of practice, a lot of games. It’s just going back to what we started doing in the spring and making sure we’re executing that way.”

A few more games like the first two and Gase will have plenty of company when it comes to calling for execution of one sort or another.

  1. Adam Gase is a loser. Every Jet fan knew he wasn’t the guy to rebuild the team yet Johnson hires him. We will always be a losing team till they get the right people in the building.

  2. Egads, that game along with the fact that we had Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland calling it seemed just bad enough to about finish off ESPN’s MNF experiment forever.

    Get it back on ABC with quality announcers and it might have a future.

  3. I loved the Gase hire. Who better to tutor your young QB, than someone who held multiple meetings with Peyton Manning, and almost successfully coached the Dolphins.

  4. I watched the game and I think this is a fair assessment. Yes losing Darnold was bad. Honestly toss up between Falk and Trevor. In Falk I saw some flashes. But what lost that game was execution. And that is going to be a problem.

  5. Gase is the architect of the current Miami Dolphins team. Their nucleus was hand picked by him. When he’s had gold jacket Manning running his offense, he has won. When anyone else is running his offense, he’s lost.
    Now word coming out of Miami is that he didn’t think Darnold could play when looking to replace his hand selected Tannyhill. There is a common denominator when looking at the two worst teams in football. Maybe he’ll stand on the table to bring Tebow back since he wanted him so bad in Denver that they used a first round pick on him.

  6. Dude, you haven’t even begun the journey.
    That was not an NFL caliber team last night.

    For Jets fans –
    the team is awful and it will take a few years to rebuild, thats just a fact of life. There have been two terrible GMs after Mike Tannenbaum, so the rebuilding has not even started.
    It starts next draft when Joe Douglas gets his first draft.

    This gives the jets 2-3 year to realize that Adam Gase is a bad HC.
    They need to get rid of him when the team finally gets good.

  7. It’s just embarrassing watching the Jets operate. It’s like they’ve never known anyone to point out their ineptness and arrogance that they show every year.

    All they do is swap different, bad hires in and out. Look at their drafting. It’s horrible.

    You’d think Jamal Adams was somehow the next coming of Ed Reed and he’s not even Rich Miano.

    They’re all hype and talk.

    Stop mentioning Joe Douglas. He has accomplished nothing to make it seem like he has clout. It’s the same annoying commentary about Dorsey in Cleveland or Ballard in Indy. They’ve done nothing other than somehow brainwash the media into thinking they are great.

    For some reason, the media latches on to soup du jour names because they are NEW. It doesn’t mean these people have accomplished anything or they are a proven commodity.

    The Jets are cooked and will always be cooked as long Woody Johnson owns that team.

  9. Not that it really mattered but the way Gase handed Cleveland 3 points at the end of the half by totally failing Clock Management 101 was truly appalling.

  10. Mike Tannenbaum was useless picking talent once Mangini left. Rex knew nothing. Idzik a moron. Gase apparently another idiot. Praying Joe Douglas brings talent

  11. Leveon Bell thought he won the lottery going to NY where he could be the star. Now, with the 3rd string QB in the game, he’s gonna remember what the childhood game of “pile on” was all about. I wonder how he is going to feel when he starts the season 0-6?

  12. Man, dude just sucks!!! Why did they hire him in the first place they could have just kept Boles for all this….SMH
