Mike Greenberg rips Jets coach Adam Gase, cites troubling stats

  Mike Greenberg rips Jets coach Adam Gase, cites troubling stats The Jets have scored just 33 touchdowns in 17 games under Gase. They’ve punted 93 times during that span. They’ve only scored on 24% of their possessions, which is the worst in the NFL. Their average drive length is 23 yards, which is also the worst in the league.

Former Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni is expected to be a candidate for the Philadelphia 76ers job, and major changes could follow if he gets it.

Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reported Wednesday that the Sixers have begun informing teams they are open to trade talks if D’Antoni is hired. There is an acknowledgement that the current roster, which is heavy on big men and light on shooters, is not tailored to D’Antoni’s style of basketball.

D’Antoni has typically succeeded with teams that can play small to spread the floor and pressure opponents through speed… and struggled otherwise. Post-based Embiid and non-shooting Simmons don’t fit D’Antoni’s demonstrated style. Maybe Philadelphia’s roster could change.

D’Antoni is an attractive candidate for a team like the Sixers. They are already contenders, but have failed to have the playoff breakthrough that they have been looking for.

GM Elton Brand has suggested that the team’s big names won’t be traded. It remains to be seen if this remains the stance if D’Antoni is actually hired. It’s entirely plausible that guys like Al Horford may wind up on the block in that instance.
