Each day that goes by offers more and more proof of how inept Adam Gase is.
When questioned about our running game being so poor against the Jets, Gase had this gem of an excuse:
When they called running plays to Kenyan Drake: “We got caught in a couple of coverages that were not ideal.” “Got caught???” The very first thing you do when you’re caught in ANYTHING is to get out of it. Don’t let yourself stay caught. Better yet, be smarter than the guy who caught you, i.e., avoid getting caught in the first place.
“Getting caught” while you’re still in a pre-snap situation leaves you plenty of time to opt out. When Brock Osweiler sees the Jets stacking the box, he needs to audible away from Gase’s play call. Unfortunately, either Brock didn’t recognize the defense (highly unlikely to not see 8 men in your face), or else he is not allowed to audible out of Gase’s play.
More: “Some of the runs that we ended up calling when Kenyan was in there, they weren’t ideal looks for us. ” So change something !! It’s simple. Change the formation to something that IS ideal for you, instead of playing into the defense’s hands. You are making the ideal call for the Jets’ defense, and you’re not opting out? You’re not calling a timeout? You’re doing nothing?
Gase is clueless. He is surprised that the Jets knew what plays we were running and had the right defense. Well, they caught us. Nothing we can do on this play. Too late. Let’s get ready to punt. Champions do not think like that. Champions make the defense be caught in a non-ideal net, not the other way around.
How dare the Jets have us well scouted and stop our plays!!
