Jamal Adams Says Adam Gase Not Right Leader For Jets
The ongoing battle between the New York Jets and their star Safety Jamal Adams is well documented and doesn't seem to be anywhere near an end. In the latest battle between Adams and Gang Green, Adams turned his venom towards the head coach, Adam Gase. In an interview with the New York Daily News, Jamal Adams questioned if Gase was the right man to lead the Jets.
The New York Daily News interview could be the final straw that gets Adams what he really wants, out of New York. After publicly blasting team owner Woody Johnson and repeated shots at the team and front office personnel saying that Gase isn't the right leader could cause enough turmoil that the Jets may feel it necessary to finally accept a trade offer.
“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.”
It should come as little to no shock that Adam Gase leaves the lion's share of the defensive side of the ball to defensive coordinator Gregg Williams but the public criticism is a little shocking. Let's be honest MANY teams in the NFL have similar situations and it's unlikely Williams takes this job if he was being micromanaged by Gase. I can't imagine this gets smoothed over any time soon.
