Jamal Adams had previously requested a trade. For quite some time no one felt that the trade was going to be processes. The Jets weren’t publicly taking trade calls, almost any player can be traded for the right price, but the Jets weren’t openly listening for trades. Then the right call came along and the Jets made a deal. That or Adams finally said what he had to about the Jets organization and head coach. Probably a bit of both.
Trade: Jets deal Jamal Adams and 4th-round pick in 2022 To Seattle, in exchange for Bradley McDougald (safety), 1st-round pick in 2021, 3rd-round pick in 2021, and 1st-round pick in 2022, source tells ESPN. Deal is pending physicals. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 25, 2020
If you really want to get traded away from a team the tried and true method of calling out the head coach and saying he will never get your team to the Super Bowl is a great way to do it. Two first round picks for Adams makes sense but the Jets weren’t keeping the stud safety after what he said about head coach Adam Gase.
“I don’t feel like he’s the right leader for this organization to reach the Promised Land,” Adams said. “As a leader, what really bothers me is that he doesn’t have a relationship with everybody in the building. “At the end of the day, he doesn’t address the team,” Adams added. “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.” New York Daily News
That statement came out Friday the 24th and the Adams trade was announced Saturday the 25th. Jamal Adams wanted out and all he had to do was say what everyone already knew about Adam Gase. That he doesn’t care about anyone on the team but the Quarterbacks and a few other guys on the offensive side of the ball. The man does not understand defense to such a degree that he can’t even give defensive players the time of day. Considering Adam Gase and Jamal Adams haven’t spoken to each other since December 30th it all checks out. Gase only cares about scoring points, which as an offensive coordinator thats fine, however, when you’re the head coach you have to give a shit about every single part of the team. Even the punters and kickers. Easy punters and kickers joke, check. If you follow Adam Gase and his career at all the fact that another player has accused Gase of being a terrible head coach and wants to leave the team isn’t a surprise. Adam Gase was terrible with the Dolphins. He wasn’t all that great as the Bears offensive coordinator either. Plus he didn’t contribute a thing to the Denver Broncos legendary 2013 offense.
That offense was all Peyton Manning all the time. Sure Gase was calling the plays, but then you would listen to 20 seconds of Peyton Manning barking play changes, him screaming OMAHA, and other route and blocking checks. By the time Manning was done doing his checks the play was something completely different from what Gase called. Gase had little to nothing to do with the success of that offense. The team had Peyton Manning at the helm, ask any Denver Broncos fan and even they will say Adam Gase had nothing to do with the success. Manning is held in godlike regard for bringing that record breaking offense and eventual Super Bowl to Denver. Adam Gase gets no love from the city of Denver. He receives little credit for the best offense in NFL history, and it’s because he had little to do with it. When Gase left to take the Bears offense to new heights and talents to rival the Denver Broncos he brought all the knowledge he had and got them to an impressive 18th best offense. If Gase deserved credit for the success of the 2013 Denver Broncos offense he would have stepped in and gotten the Bears offense to at minimum top 10, to get a head coaching job he should have to get the Bears to a minimum top 5 offense. Nope, the Dolphins want the guy that coached the 18th best offense in 2015 to be their head coach. Gase ended up trading away several important players on that Miami Dolphins team and he’s started doing it with the New York Jets.
New York Jets fans should be worried. Jamal Adams was awesome and could have anchored the secondary for the Jets for years to come, and sure two first round draft picks is a good return for a single player, but do you really trust Adam Gase and the New York Jets to use those picks wisely. They’re far more likely to draft a tight end with shaky hands and then an edge rusher with two bad knees and a history with PEDs. J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS! Adam Gase and his smooth talking will some how convince the Jets upper management into giving him another year after what is bound to be a disappointing and sad 2020 season for the Jets. Gase will claim that this season shouldn’t count towards his overall performance because of the strange circumstances and no fans and some other BS and he will be the head coach in 2021 as well. Which will also be bad, if Adam Gase is the head coach of a team expect it to be a bad year. Adam Gase continues to have a job because his name is tied to an offense that was from seven years ago and was led by one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
