Poll: Will The Jets Fire Adam Gase Before The End Of The Year?

After Sunday’s 24-0 loss to the Dolphins, the Jets have dropped to 0-6. There’s no denying that the hot seat is getting rather warm for head coach Adam Gase. At this point, his firing seems inevitable, even though he’s only in Year Two of his Gang Green tenure. 

For a while, we’ve heard that the Jets plan to keep Gase through the end of the year. But, after their dreadful offensive performance on Sunday, keeping Gase might be hard to justify. Things aren’t going to get much easier from here, either. The Bills, Chiefs, and Patriots are coming up, a stretch that could easily put them at 0-9 before their bye week.

Ownership planned to stick things out with Gase, largely out of concern for Sam Darnold, who is still only 23 and in his third pro season. The Jets may also be concerned about how they’re perceived by coaching candidates early next year – a quick hook for a second-year head coach isn’t necessarily a good look, especially given their track record for turmoil.

Gase has hardly had a competitive roster to work with since he was hired in January of 2019 and injuries have also taken their toll on the team. Still, it doesn’t seem like Gase has command over the locker room. His feud with Le’Veon Bell didn’t do the Jets any favors, either. Last week, the Jets released Bell outright, less than two years after signing him to a whopping four-year, $52.5MM deal. Granted, Gase didn’t want him, and current GM Joe Douglas probably wasn’t a big fan, either. But, Sunday’s game showed that Bell’s attitude was not the Jets’ only limiting factor this year.

    Will they? No, because they’re the Jets.

    Should they? Yes, so they stop being the Jets.

      All this talk of firing Gates now is stupid. Wait it out till like week 14 when the Jets will likely have #1 wrapped up. Then let him go. You let FAs and the team see you are changing course but also secure Lawrence.

      Why would you change now? not going to make the playoffs but could push yourself out of the running for Lawrence and/or Fields.

      • phenomenalajs

        I’ll keep stating what I have before. Trevor Lawrence is a phenomenal QB, but the Jets would ruin him with the roster around him. I’d prefer sticking with Sam and trading down a few spots to get him a weapon like Ja’Marr Chase.

      • Appalachian_Outlaw

        What if Lawrence stays in school? I know if I was a bright QB prospect and I had my choice of returning to Clemson or playing for that dumpster fire in New York, I’m staying put.

        I also don’t see where continuing to wreck the culture in the lockerroom is in any way beneficial. Even if you want to say look we changed course, why let it get to that point to begin with? I mean the DC is openly calling Gase out.

    Before end of year? I think the real question should be is he the head coach beyond Thanksgiving Day?

  3. ripaceventura30

    I say no, he is the best way to guarantee the #1 pick right now. If they have that locked up come, say, Week 15, then he’s probably gone. No use going through all that change when you’re accomplishing exactly what you want with him.

  4. HubcapDiamondStarHalo

    I think they’ll fire him as soon as they’ve mathematically clinched the #1 pick in the draft.

  5. dweis72

    Leave him in, they know it’s a bad year … again . the more you lose the better the shot at Trevor Lawrence and that would be a bigger win then any this year

  6. ironcity341

    If i was Trevor I would go back to Clemson for my senior year to avoid this train wreck of an organization he’ll may even take a redshirt to skip next draft lol. Jets bengals lions browns Jaguars where qb careers die

    • BAINES03

      He could just pull an Elway or E Manning and tell them he refuses to play for them so trade him.

      • petersdylan36

        Atlanta too
        Trevor played high school football outside of ATL and plays in Clemson which is a couple hours away

        • phenomenalajs

          The issue is that QB isn’t the real problem in Atlanta. I don’t know how much longer Matt Ryan is under contract.

        • petersdylan36

          While I would agree with that, Ryan is getting older and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to start thinking about a replacement if you have the opportunity.

    • hammer_time24

      Not all of those teams are QB killers. Stafford has been solid overall for Detroit, and the Bengals have had QBs who were at least useful over the last several years (Dalton, Palmer).

  7. SueJen

    Leave bumbling Gase right where he is. Let him coach us to 0-16 and lead us to Trevor Lawrence.

  8. bradthebluefish

    Jets are in 1st place at getting Trevor Lawrence sweepstake. Not too shabby!

    • phenomenalajs

      To me, that sounds like winning a $100K Lincoln Town Car on the Price Is Right, but not having the $20K in funds available for tax and title to take it off the lot. It’s only a great win if you can deal with the consequences of it. I’ve been a Jets’ fan since the NY Sack Exchange, but I don’t see Lawrence as the answer for this team. I’d trade down and either get Sam more protection or more weapons. The Jets can’t afford to ruin another young QB.

  9. goldenmisfit

    They need to fire this guy ASAP! He was a joke of a head coach in Miami and is a joke of a head coach in New York. Also people need to stop using Sam as a scapegoat to keep this guy just take a glance at Ryan Tannehill. Under Adam he came off as if he did not even belong in the NFL and now in Tennessee he appears like it all pro.

  10. TJECK109

    The real question is, why haven’t they already fired him? Now you got a rift between him and the DC. If Williams hadn’t said what he said last week, I think he’s HC this morning

  11. padam

    Gase is a disaster, but the right guy for the job if they want the top overall pick . Gase has rubbed too many folks off the wrong way with the Jets, and as mentioned above, bad coaching/evaluating players such as Tannehill.

    Darnold could be the real deal, just under a different coach and better talent around him to work with. It’s unfair to label the kid this early when everything around him has been crap.

    • mlbnyyfan

      Why would they fire Gase and have new coach possibly next a win or two and miss out on Trevor Lawrence. Calling out all Jets fans. Do you take Lawrence or trade the pick in a Herchel Walker type trade?

      • phenomenalajs

        Trade, but I think you mean a Ricky Williams (or Reggie Bush) type trade. Herschel was already an established player when the Cowboys fleeced the Vikings. I’d keep Sam and try to trade down a few spots to get him Ja’Marr Chase

  12. BuckarooBanzai

    Trevor is not going to the Jets.

    That’s not a prediction that another team will have the #1 Pick

    Trevor is NOT going to the Jets

    They need to trade that pick for a nice haul. I’d try to work something out with the Panthers because Trevor “staying home” would do so much for that state & franchise


  13. MarlinsFanBase

    And to think that Jets fans thought that the Dolphins were stupid for firing Gase.

    I seem to be holding back a chuckle.

  14. phenomenalajs

    A couple games ago, I thought Gase would be fired and Gregg Williams would be named interim HC. Now after GW’s pregame botched comments and botched play-calling during the game, I wouldn’t be surprised if Williams were fired first.
