Jets Players Offer Conflicting Views of Life Under Adam Gase

As you’ve surely heard by now, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News interviewed Jets star safety Jamal Adams who, to put it mildly, trashed head coach Adam Gase as training camp gets ready to kick off.  Interestingly enough, running back Le’Veon Bell claimed otherwise just a few days ago.

According to Mehta, Adams had this to say about Gase:

“At the end of the day, he doesn’t address the team.  If there’s a problem in the locker room, he lets another coach address the team. If we’re playing sh—y and we’re losing, he doesn’t address the entire team as a group at halftime. He’ll walk out of the locker room and let another coach handle it.”

In fairness to Gase, it’s not uncommon to focus on his side of ball, in this case being offense.  However, as poorly as the Jets played last season, it would be quite concerning if Gase never felt compelled to take the floor in front of the whole team in order to regroup and refocus.  However, the comments from Adams differ quite strongly from running back Le’Veon Bell, who spoke about Gase last week and had glowing reviews.

“I’ve never played for an offensive-minded coach. So I’ve talked to him more than any other coach that I’ve ever talked to… I don’t get how people get that relationship thing… But since I got there, me and him have no problems”

This time around, in fairness to Bell, he is addressing his personal relationship with Gase, saying nothing about how Gase works with the rest of the team.

Even before being hired to take over in New York, there  were whispers regarding Gase’s treatment of his players and that hasn’t gone unnoticed as mentioned by Connor Rogers of Bleacher Report.

But as mentioned by another Conner, this time of the Hughes variety, if Adams had such an issue with Gase, why would he be willing to sign an extension just a couple of months ago?

Plenty of conflicting views and opinions on the Jets current predicament, putting a damper on the start of the camp as only the Jets can.
