Consistency is key for Adam Gase against the Redskins


Adam Gase must've had a big sigh of relief after hearing from owner Christopher Johnson that he will be back next year as the Head Coach of the New York Jets. However, he shouldn't get too comfortable because the seat is still warm. Even though this team has battled through a lot of injuries this year, there is no excuse as to why the "quarterback whisperer" can't seem to figure out an identity of what this offense actually is. The team has the talent but Gase can't seem to utilize that to the players strength, more specifically for Le'veon Bell who hasn't been the same this year. Bell can be used in both the pass and run, but Gase hasn't involved him at all. Gase may have the trust from the owner, but he doesn't have it from the fans and he needs to change that with the last couple games of the season.

Last week against the Giants, the Jets offense finally came alive by scoring 34 points for the first time this season and the first time against their crosstown rival. Sam Darnold didn't see ghosts as he torched the Giants secondary, looking more confident in the pocket than he did the previous few weeks. Now he will look to carry some momentum against a Redskins team that has been good in both the run and pass. If Adam Gase was this offensive guru, he would look to get Bell more involved in this offense.

I would like to see this team not only have a similar day like last week, but a better execution by taking advantage of the Redskins mistakes. The Redskins will be starting their rookie quarterback who's not having the greatest debut season, Haskins has not only thrown multiple interceptions in almost every game but has yet to throw a touchdown pass this season. If this defense can force some turnovers, can the offense capitalize that into touchdowns? It's up to Adam Gase to figure that out.
