WhartonJet Posted October 13, 2020 Share Posted October 13, 2020 With a lost season after week 5, I’ve been thinking about the seemingly baffling play calling from Gase this year. I’m certainly no Gase apologist. Like most, I want him gone at the end of the year. But, does anyone remember us scoring TDs on our opening drive in 6-7 straight games last year? Did Gase suddenly forget how to gameplan? Are the injuries that much of a factor this year vs. last year? This got me to think that maybe the tank really is on at 1 Jets Drive. What if Joe Douglas and Gase have decided that Trevor Lawrence is the chosen one and they are willing to flush a year (where we weren’t going to win the super bowl anyway) in order to secure the first pick and Trevor Lawrence. Maybe they decided in the offseason that Sam just wasn’t the guy after evaluating him all of last year. If you look at it through that lense, the bizarre play calling makes more sense. Holding players back from returning from injuries also makes sense (Sam with the shoulder, no Mims, no Zuniga, no Hall, nursing Becton, Ashtyn Davis, Vyncint Smith, etc). It would also explain how Joe Douglas approached the offseason with all the 1 year deals and getting no weapons for Sam. Assume Gregg Williams is on board and maybe that explains some of the regression on defense. The troubling part of this would be if Adam Gase is “in” on the tank, that would mean he is the coach next year. Unless Douglas only guaranteed Gase’s job to get the tank accomplished and then knifes him after the season anyway - much like Gase did to Big Mac. Thoughts?
