Adam Gase on Jamal Adams: Media making it bigger than it was

Jets safety Jamal Adams was so upset the team considered trading him that he wouldn’t speak to General Manager Joe Douglas or coach Adam Gase. But now everyone is back on the same page, and Gase says it was never as bad as it sounded.

Asked on Friday about talking to Adams, Gase told reporters that he didn’t consider the situation a significant concern, even if others did.

“Yeah, I feel like you guys are making it a little bigger than what it was,” Gase said. “We talked Sunday, we talked Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. For me, I was moved on. I told him, I was like, ‘Man, just keep trying to lead and play well. Do everything you can to help us win.'”

The reality, however, is that it was Adams who made it a big deal when he said Douglas “went behind my back” to try to trade him after Adams thought they had all agreed he was in the team’s long term plans. The media only made the story as big as Adams made it.

  1. The playbook for people in power is a simple one. Get people to be skeptical of the media so that when they catch you screwing up and try to hold you accountable you can just say it’s their fault.

    The Boston media is way worse.
    The teams are successful and they still lie and troll.

    Here is a poster that “gets it”. The game he describes above isn’t a new technique but it’s been perfected over the last 9-10 years or so … it’s right out of the A.L.E.C. playbook (yes, there IS such a thing). It’s used to the point now where I just roll my eyes because these people are just saying, “Of course I’m lying to you…but, hear me out.”

  4. So there was a need to discuss it with the player 4 consecutive days so it wasn’t a big deal?

  5. You know story I always thought the media DIDN’T make a big enough deal out of? How Adam Gase was a horrible coach in Miami. Got fired for being a horrible coach in Miami, then somehow got hired by the Jets over tons of other coaches with better records or more potential. And is STILL a horrible coach in NY.

  6. Adams is a hyper-sensitive, thin-skinned millennial who needed to have his feelings coddled. He’s also a fool for wanting to remain with the Jets.
