For the second year in a row, the Jets are winless through Week 5, and among the common denominators between the two versions of the team is that head coach Adam Gase is calling plays.
That may not be the case for much longer.
Answering a question as to whether or not he would ever take more of an overview role as head coach, Gase said the idea has come to mind more than once.
"For the last four years (as a head coach), I've toyed with the idea every once in a while," Gase said. "I mean, I don't think I've ever been opposed to trying something to try to change things up. I'd say everything is on the table at this point."
"I'm considering everything... I'm just looking at everything and trying to figure out whatever can help us turn things in the right direction. I'll be all for that."
After calling the plays for three seasons as the Dolphins head coach, Gase was brought to New York for that task and his ability to control and offense.
Yet in 2019, Gase's offense was dead last in total yards and 31st in total points, and so far in 2020, the Jets are 28th in yards and last in points.
Gase's overall control of the offense — including it's stars — seems to be up in the air aside from just calling plays.
Le'Veon Bell and Gase seemed to be at odds yet again after Sunday's loss, with Bell liking a tweet which said he should be traded since Gase isn't using him properly.
Even if Gase actually gives up play-calling duties, the Jets are already in a deep hole for what is likely another lost season. Besides for two games with the Dolphins, there isn't a game on their schedule that really looks winnable.
Come the end of the season, I'm not so sure play-calling duties will be the only thing Gase loses.
