It couldn't get worse for Adam Gase and the New York Jets, right? Well, it just got worse.
The Jets might have just one win on the season, but there's no team in the league in more dire straits than the Jets. The Jets sunk to the lowest of the low this week, as not only did they lose to the Miami Dolphins, but they were thoroughly dominated by the Miami Dolphins.
Sam Darnold has regressed to the point where he looks worse than he ever did at USC. He's just aimlessly throwing the ball up and praying a Jet catches it. I guess that's what happens when you hire a guy who has more double-digit losses in his career than wins. If there was ever a game for the Darnold doubters to (rightly) claim he isn't a franchise guy, this is it.
The only way forward is a complete rebuild. The first order of business is getting Gase FAR away from the building (because forcing owner Christopher Johnson out is impossible).
Do Le'Veon Bell, Jamal Adams, and Quinnen Williams -- the only three players on this dumpster fire that have any sort of value -- a solid and trade them to teams that will either compete for a championship or help nurture their talents. Stockpile picks and rebuild that offensive line and secondary.
Hire an experienced NFL coach with a proven record of success or an innovative young offensive guy, that way the stink of Gase can be fumigated and the damage can be minimized.
The hallmarks of Gase's tenure (if you can call it that) were ruining their franchise quarterback and turning Le'Veon Bell into an average running back. At least Rich Kotite's teams competed.
