Jets head coach Adam Gase, whose team is 0-3 and has been largely non-competitive so far this season, spoke on Tuesday in advance of Gang Green's matchup on Thursday against the Denver Broncos.
According to Gase, the players are "pissed" with how the season has gone.
"I think they're pissed," Gase told reporters via Zoom. "Because there's moments in the game where we feel like we have to just get over that hump of stay right where we're at, we're right there in a one-score game. And something happens where we let it avalanche on us.
"That's the point of the game we've got to put a stop to and then find a way to actually use momentum to our advantage. We haven't done that yet and we need to clean up so much stuff. ... But at the same time, there's valuable information that we've learned over the first three weeks. We just got to get better this week."
If the Jets aren't able to get their first win on Thursday night, it's hard to envision when it might happen, as SNY's Ralph Vacchiano dissected.
With the Jets struggling badly, he was asked on Tuesday whether he has heard outside speculation about his job security.
"I can't focus on that," Gase said. "It's wasted energy. It's not gonna help me at all. All I can do is make sure I get our guys in the right head space to go out there on Thursday and play well. ... That's got to be my focus.
"If I waste my energy on anything else it's just counterproductive to what we're trying to do."
