Adam Gase's New York Jets are currently sputtering out of control, as they have resorted to third-string quarterback Luke Falk as QB1 and have lost at home to the Bills and Browns.

Part of that is due to the loss of quarterback Sam Darnold, who is out indefinitely as he recovers from mononucleosis. Gase said that it's realistic to expect him back for Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but also said that the doctors could overrule that decision, as Darnold could rupture his spleen.

Hmm...you think that's a big deal?

Say what you want about Gase's acumen, or extreme lack thereof, as a football coach, but you can never accuse of him of not telling you what he thinks.

Darnold is, allegedly, the Jets franchise quarterback, so playing him at anything less than 100% health and risking further injury is another fireable offense for Gase.

Ten days after the season got started the Jets went from trendy underdog pick to same old Jets dumpster fire. Gase's presence clearly hasn't done much besides give us more quotes to laugh about.
