Adam Gase Says He Wasn’t Happy About Gregg Williams’ Comment About Jets Offense

Jets coach Adam Gase, trying to keep his winless team from fracturing, wasn’t pleased that defensive coordinator Gregg Williams took a veiled shot at the offense when speaking to reporters on Friday.

Gase addressed Williams’ comments Sunday night after a 24-0 loss to the Miami Dolphins, which dropped the Jets to 0-6., Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.

“Yeah, I wasn’t happy about it, but we talked about it,” Gase said. “Right now, our players are doing such a good job as far as trying to get things righted. It’s just that everything we say, it matters. He understood that we have to set the right example.”

With the season spiraling, the coaches have emphasized to players the importance of not pointing fingers. Williams seemed to do just that with a cryptic remark about the struggling offense, which is run by Gase.

On Friday, Williams was prompted by a reporter who noted the Jets were allowing 32 points per game. The fiery defensive coordinator replied, “It’s not a very good number — and a lot of it’s not all defensively.”

Asked to elaborate, he said, “You’d have to figure it out.”

Gase was irked. At first, he tried to downplay it, saying, “He was trying to talk about complementary football, all three phases playing together.”

Nevertheless, it prompted Gase to call a meeting with Williams to discuss it. Gase insisted the matter is resolved.

“I felt like we were good after we talked,” he claimed.

Gase also offered a harsh rebuke of Williams in the CBS production meeting on the eve of the game. According to the telecast, Gase told the CBS crew, “That’s not what we need. No one is pointing fingers. We all need to pull in the same direction. Everyone needs to shut up and play.”

Jets Place Veteran Wide Out Chris Hogan on Injured Reserve

The Jets have lost another vet, as today the team placed veteran wide out Chris Hogan on injured reserve.

Hogan was hurt during Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals in which he went to the locker room with a knee injury.

This season he put up 14 grabs for 118 yards. After three games he can return if he’s back to being close to 100 percent.

Video: Jets Look for First Win of 2020 as they Host the Cardinals

The Jets will look for their first win of 2020 on Sunday as they play the 2-2 Arizona Cardinals at home.

Arizona enters the game Sunday at 2-2, while the Jets are 0-4.

Gamblers Starting to Place Money on the Jets for Sunday’s Game Against Arizona

This may surprise you after watching the Jets lay an egg on Thursday last week against the Broncos at home, but those who like to lay the odds are placing money on the Jets this week.

New York is sitting as a 7-point underdog against the Arizona Cardinals, who enter the game against the Jets at 2-2, 1-1 at home and 1-1 on the road.

The Jets at 0-4 have allowed 131 points so far in their four losses, that’s 32.7 points per game.

Nevertheless, here’s the latest write up from Sports Illustrated’s gambling page on the Jets and Cardinals and how money is sliding to New York.

Arizona Cardinals at New York Jets

Moneyline: Arizona (-305) | New York (+260)

Spread: ARI -7 (-110) | NYJ +7 (-110)

Total: 47– Over: (-110) | Under: 47 (-110)

Game Info: October 11, 2020 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT | FOX

This is easily the most perplexing movement of any line in Week 5. The Cardinals (2-2 SU; 2-2 ATS) have seen the line move against them after opening as 8.5-point road favorites against the Jets. Despite the strong support in ticket count for the Cardinals, the line has moved in favor of winless New York. Oddsmakers at DraftKings Sportsbook have adjusted the line to a current market offering of Arizona as only 7-point road favorites. Bettors are really expecting a clueless Adam Gase and his New York Jets (0-4 SU; 0-4 ATS) to cover the number against Kyler Murray in Week 5? I realize the Cardinals have dropped two straight, but there is no way anyone should ever be putting their hard earned money behind an Adam Gase coached team. Despite nearly 75 percent of the money being in support of the Cardinals the oddsmakers have moved this line surprisingly in favor of the Jets.

Jets Deny They’re Talking to Agents of Coaches with Adam Gase’s Job Not Safe

While head coach Adam Gase might be firmly situated on the hot seat, the Jets denied they’re making plans for his successor just yet, Chris Ryan of NJ Advance Media reports.

According to Pro Football Talk, the team denied a report that said CEO and acting owner Christopher Johnson started reaching out to top coaching agents who represent potential candidates for the Jets’ next head coach, should Gase be fired.

On Monday, Colin Cowherd of FOX Sports reported Johnson and the Jets started reaching out to agents with Gase potentially coaching for his job with the team at 0-3 entering its Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos.

“I’m told the Jets have already reached out to a top coach agent and started asking questions,” Cowherd said on his show Monday. “They’re going to look to college, they’re going to look to the pros. But the Jets have started the process. Of course, the Jets will deny this, but the Jets are now calling big-time agents. I’m not going to give you the name of the agent because that will give up my source. But they are calling big-time agents, Christopher Johnson, and they’re now compiling lists.”

Gase enters Thursday’s game against the Broncos with a 7-12 record since taking over as Jets coach in 2019.

Sam Darnold Says He’s Not Playing Consistent Enough to Win

Sam Darnold could have been perfect on Sunday, and it still may not have changed the Jets’ fate against the Colts.

But in reality, Darnold’s performance in a 36-7 loss turned out to be the lowlight in what was a miserable day in every aspect for the road team at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.Darnold tossed three interceptions, including two that were returned for touchdowns. The other pick came in the end zone, killing one of the Jets’ few promising drives without any points.

Darnold takes the blame for his poor performance against the Colts, Chris Ryan of NJ Advance Media reports.

“I’m not playing consistent enough to play well in this league,” Darnold said. “And so, for me, I just need to play more consistent, make the plays when they’re there, and when they’re not, just get rid of the ball, check it down, do all the right things I need to do.”

Darnold finished 17-of-29 passing for 168 yards, one touchdown and the three interceptions. Through three games, he’s averaging just 5.9 yards per attempt.

Jets to Be Without WR Breshad Perriman and WR Jamison Crowder Vs Colts

The Jets’ offense against the Colts will look nothing like the one you expected in the preseason, Chris Ryan of NJ Advance Media reports.

Wide receivers Jamison Crowder (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (ankle) will both be out when the Jets play the Colts at 4:05 p.m. on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Offensive tackle George Fant will also miss the game due to a concussion suffered at practice on Wednesday.

Those three players join a list players on IR who have long been ruled out from playing on Sunday. Running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Denzel Mims will both be out until at least Week 5 due to hamstring injuries.

Jets vs 49ers: Can the Jets Get on Track Against the NFC Champs?

Opening day didn’t go so well for the Jets, as their trip to Buffalo was a disaster as the team fell to 0-1 with an ugly 27-17 loss to the Bills.

This week won’t be much easier, as the Jets will be at home to host the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers, and many betting experts don’t see New York being able to hang with San Fran.

Betting on the NFL just got a lot easier with BetQL. Check out their NFL expert picks for this week and every week for the rest of the season.

One thing that is for sure is that the 49ers need to rebound as badly as the Jets, as they lost in stunning fashion at home to the Arizona Cardinals 24-20.

San Francisco also won’t have a couple of big players in the lineup, including cornerback Richard Sherman, and tight end George Kittle’s status for the game is up in the air.

Here’s a couple keys for the Jets if they are going to pull off the week two upset.

1. Get Darnold Going Early

Last week it was painful watching Sam Darnold trying to get the Jets offense going, and Darnold never got on track.

He ended the day 21-for-35 for just 215 yards, and most of that came in garbage time. If the Jets are going to hang with San Fran, they need to get the offense moving early.

”My timing needs to be better,” Darnold said. ”I think I did hurry some things. I feel like just at the beginning of a game I’ve just got to relax and take a deep breath, ease myself into it and make the throws when they’re there.”

That will be easier said than done, as the 49ers pass rush is even tougher than that of the Bills, and Darnold needs to make good decisions downfield.

2. Try and Establish the Run

No Le’Veon Bell, as the Jets leading rusher is going to miss a couple weeks with a hamstring issue suffered against the Bills.

That means the run game will fall on veteran Frank Gore, who played a good portion of his career in San Fran with the Niners.

Gore will play this game with a chip on his shoulder, and he is going to want to prove he’s got gas left in his tank.

3. Get To Jimmy Garoppolo

”You’ve got to deal with the situation that you’re given and control what you can control.”

That was Garoppolo last week after they fell at home to the Cardinals. The Niners offense couldn’t control much, as the Cardinals defense was able to confuse Jimmy G and get to him a couple of times.

The Jets would be wise to take that game plan and duplicate it, making it a long day for the 49ers QB can only help the Jets get a victory.

Prediction: The Niners are road favorites on the East coast, but you can expect the Jets to stay in the game and likely may even have a late lead.

It will be up to Darnold to keep it that way, but in the end, it’ll be too much Niners defense and not enough offense from the Jets in this week two battle. 49ers 17 Jets 13
