The New York Jets are looking like one of the worst—if not the worst—team in football this season. And while many are already calling for the head of coach Adam Gase, according to reports close to the team, his job is safe for now.
Even though the team looks terrible in nearly every phase, the organization will remain patient with Gase, with some reports claiming that Gase will most likely remain the coach because it’s the best thing to do for New York’s young quarterback Sam Darnold at this time.
Dropping their fourth game in a row to start the season, the Jets lost to the Denver Broncos, who were starting their third-string quarterback Brett Rypien.
Even though the game didn’t end in a blowout like the first three, it was still painful to watch for Jets fans. New York ended up blowing a fourth-quarter lead, mainly due to their undisciplined play. They had 11 penalties for 118 yards on the night, six of which were personal fouls.
The Jets offense went 0-3 in the red zone and Darnold had another nightmare game in the pocket, getting sacked six times. Darnold had to exit the game for a bit after a brutal sack in which he was tossed to the ground violently, spraining his shoulder.
Unfortunately for everyone, especially Gase and Darnold, the Jets schedule will only get harder from here on. They face the Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Chargers, Buffalo Bills, and the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs over the next four weeks, making an 0-8 start to the season all but inevitable with the way the team is playing right now.
