Jets coaches say Frank Gore is already making his presence felt

Frank Gore has not yet played a game as a Jet, but his coaches are already glad to have him.

Jets head coach Adam Gase told reporters today that Gore’s leadership has been on full display even in the team’s Zoom meetings, where Gore has shown the same kind of leadership that made Gase love coaching in Miami.

Jets offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains also praised Gore for the way he’s making clear that he wants to keep getting better, even at age 37.

“Oh, my gosh, I could go on for a long time,” Loggains said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN. “This guy has the ultimate chip on his shoulder.”

Gore may have lost a step, but the Jets still think he has something to contribute on the field. And a lot to contribute off the field.

  1. It took Gase a month of prepreseason to say more positive things about Gore than he did Bell all last season and to this day.

  2. This shows you just how much of a train wreck the Jets have become under Gase. Gore should be a complimentary piece to provide added experience and leadership, not be *the* leadership focus. It will be another long season for long suffering Jets fans.

  3. It seems like Gore has been around forever. He takes care of his body (obviously), STAYS OUT OF TROUBLE, and has life skills and leadership abilities young players need and crave. He’s kinda like a life coach with a uniform. Sometimes aging leaders mean more in the locker room then they do on the field but in this case I believe Gore can do both. I wish him well. [It seems like the “stone age” of my life when I watched him play college ball… I guess “old Man River” just keeps rolling along. I don’t think he’s going to retire anytime soon.

  4. That says a lot about the rest of the team when the guy a year or two away from retiring comes in and demonstrates more leadership than anyone else.

  5. Some players are good on the field but bad off the field. Frank Gore is good off the field but bad on the field. Actually, Frank Gore has long been a coach’s dream. But there are 52 other men trying to win a championship, so at some point you have to walk away.

  6. If Frank Gore can be a leader as a player he can be a leader and a great head coach someday.

  7. Now Frank Gore would be a guy who might make a good HC candidate when he retires if he would be interested. Tough as nails, good character, well respected.

    As a Giants fan, I have no dog in the fight, but none of what you said makes any sense at all. The AFC East is up for grabs and any of the four teams – even the Jets – could win it.

    ding, ding, ding!

    We have a winner!

    The Jets will always be a laughingstock. A 37 year old about to break down as a 1 year rental is their best leader during a pandemic.

    lol

    Um, no. Pats have the best D in the league, one of the greatest secondaries ever assembled as witnessed in sb 53, and almost all of last year, improved and likely brilliant special teams, and a lot of talent on offense that hasn’t been tapped yet.

    Brady sucked royally last year. Sucked.

    Buffalo finishes in 2nd, misses the playoffs, the Jets 3rd, squeaking past Miami in 4th, the latter with a serious continuity problem from last year and no camp dur to Covid19.
