I didn’t even realize people were seriously under the belief Gase was going to get canned. Yes, the Jets are awful, but let’s not kid ourselves on this situation.
There’s not a coach in the league that could win with them right now. He missed Sam Darnold for multiple games to start the year.
At one point Luke Falk was throwing passes for the Jets. Luke Falk! Is that surprising to you? Well, don’t feel too bad. Most football fans don’t know who Luke Falk is or where he came from.
The idea Gase is responsible for how bad the Jets are is laughable, and it’s just not realistic. Now, if he can’t get the job done next season with a healthy roster that shows improvement, then there’s a conversation to be had.
Right now, firing Gase would be an insane overreaction.
Gase might not be the greatest coach in the league, but he’s a solid option for the Jets. After next season, he should be re-evaluated.
As of right now, there’s no reason at all for the team to dump him for somebody else.
