Jets head coach Adam Gase might not have total job security for 2021, but he doesn’t have a playoff mandate for this year. That was the message from CEO Christopher Johnson who was asked about Gase’s future this week.

“I’m going to want to see this team progress,” Johnson said (via Manish Mehta of the Daily News). “Hopefully, that won’t be too hard from that first game, but I’m looking for real progression over this season. I’m confident that we’ll see that.”

Adam Gase disagrees with Jets players about quality of practices

  Adam Gase disagrees with Jets players about quality of practices Considering the Jets' 0-2 start, it wouldn't be a surprise if their practices haven't been as crisp as they could be.Multiple Jets players spoke publicly about how they felt the practices had been lacking, and that it contributed to Gang Green's 0-2 start. Safety Bradley McDougald told SNY some of the practices had been “slow.” Linebacker Avery Williamson agreed, telling WFAN that they “haven’t been as crisp” as they should be.

Gase, who he referred to as a “brilliant offensive mind,” guided the Jets to a 7-9 record in his first season at the helm. On Sunday, they opened the season with a tough 27-17 loss to the rival Bills. The Jets were a “mess” in that game, Johnson confessed, but he still believes that Gang Green can win in 2020 if the team stays healthy.

Of course, this Jets team wasn’t necessarily built to win this season. The Jets sat on their cash this offseason, mostly handing out one-year deals or contracts that are light on guaranteed dollars for ’21 and beyond. The Jets ultimately whiffed on most of their top targets and declined to go deep into talks for Jaguars star edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue. Then, just before the start of the season, the Jets shipped star safety Jamal Adams to the Seahawks. To most observers, it was a matter of penny-pinching, but Johnson claims that he gave GM Joe Douglas “complete discretion” in managing the roster.

Coming into this season, Gase had a combined 30-34 career coaching record with the Dolphins and Jets.

Ahead of Weeks 3 and 4, it could be smart to stash guys like Jeff Wilson Jr., Justin Herbert, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling as they look to earn high-volume opportunities.Admittedly, it's tough to drop players that you're confident in, and at this point in the season, you may have a lot of those.
