Adam Gase, just like the rest of us, needs that pick-me-up to get him through his job.

In his case, it is sniffing smelling salts prior to coaching the New York Jets’ first preseason game against the New York Giants on Thursday.

OK, so maybe Gase’s scenario is just a little different. But it certainly isn’t surprising.

The Jets’ new head man raised some eyebrows at his introductory press conference earlier this year, when he seemed a little ... off.

Oh, and the game is being suspended because of severe weather. But regardless, Gase is wide awake by now.

Let’s just say that if Gase manages to turn the Jets franchise around (Sam Darnold went 4-for-5 in an opening drive that resulted in a touchdown), nobody will mind his shenanigans.

And if the Jets end up being the Jets, at least their coach will be entertaining.
