Jets head coach Adam Gase may finally start feeling the heat.
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortenson, the Jets brass will be “monitoring” Gase closely this week and is under more intense scrutiny.
While the Jets, like much of the rest of the league, are dealing with their fair share of injuries, the team is 0-2 and has not looked good in either loss.
The Jets entered Sunday’s game as 11.5-point underdogs against the Indianapolis Colts, but Mortenson notes that this week’s Thursday night game against the Broncos may be “more telling.”
This report is, of course, a change of tune from Jets management following a Week 1 loss to the Bills in which Jets CEO Christopher Johnson expressed confidence in Gase and referred to him as “an offensive genius.”
The Jets entered Sunday last in the league in total offensive yards and second-to-last in points per game – which is exactly where they ranked last year after Gase’s first season in New York.
Still, the Jets finished strong last season, finishing 5-2 to close with a 7-9 record. Yet if the Jets do not start to turn things around this week, it seems more likely than not that Gase may not get the chance to turn things around a second year.
