On Monday, radio host Colin Cowherd reported that Jets CEO Christopher Johnson has begun reaching out to top agents who represent coaching candidates. The Jets say that’s not true.

Per a team spokesperson, the report that Johnson has begun reaching out to coaching agents is not accurate.

Cowherd used the report of Johnson reaching out to agents as the basis for a claim that the Jets will fire coach Adam Gase if they lose on Thursday night. As previously explained, the notion that Gase could be fired if the Jets lose on Thursday night doesn’t logically follow from the report that Johnson is talking to agents who represent coaches.

Regardless, the Jets say on the record that Johnson is not talking to coaching agents.

  1. Starting to feel bad for the guy..
    I won’t be piling any more on Gase…
    I’m actually hoping they get a spark and he’s able to keep his job for a few more years 😏

  2. Do we trust the Jets to get this right? If the past few coaching/GM regimes have taught us Jets fans anything, it’s that the executives are a bit lacking in their hiring abilities. *I still have faith in Joe D.!

  3. OF COURSE the owner & new GM are looking! Adam is gone….they just haven’t told him yet. But he knows his days are numbered.

  4. I give the Jets credit. They never wait around to mess things up, they move quickly into their next mistakes.

  5. One of the bottom five NFL franchises in the NFL due to horrendous ownership and mismanagement. In the same cesspool as Detroit, Washington, Cleveland, and Cincinnati. Same story but different locations. Too bad because the fan bases in these cities are so loyal . They deserve better.

  6. Simply put, Gase has been a failure as a HC everywhere he’s been. It’s no different with the Jets.

  7. There’s a reason Miami fired him… his status as “offensive genius” stems from coaching Manning and nothing to do with his talents

  8. Gase should never have been hired by the Jets in the first place. Sticking with him this season instead of taking the hit and getting a new coach in the offseason was an even bigger mistake.

    Right – and how much did he really coach Manning anyway? More like sit and watch the work being done. This guy is not an offensive genius.

  10. Jets owner Woody Johnson needs to spend more time on his football team and less time as a Trump fanboy.

  11. Just like how so many coaches that worked for the Patriots got jobs, and failed. Gase worked with Peyton, so he got jobs and has failed.

  12. Denver and the Jets on primetime? I don’t miss many but I may find a reason to sit out that stinker.

  13. As often as Gase looks at that playsheet, He must be Brilliant, lol. Gase is a Team Player for the business, taking it on the chin. The Johnson’s should wait it out. Be patient. 0-16 is not so bad. Give Gase and family a great severance package as well. Don’t worry about fan noise or complaining sensitive employees. This is business not about winning. Hire more cheap staff and milk this out for the profit to come.
