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.”
