These are just a few of the questions that hover over the franchise as it prepares for a tumultuous off-season. The organization has been very excited on the Woody Johnson matter, with the exception of CEO Christopher Johnson, who expects him to play a big role upon his return. When the season is over, the Jets will need to disclose – or at least clarify – their succession plan as it will affect their operations.
Adam Gases fate. The embattled coach has a close relationship with Christopher, the man who hired him in 2019. Gase hopes Christopher toss him a life preserver if he wins a few games and the rookies show promise. This dynamic changes when Woody parachutes in and participates in the decision. Gase and Woody Johnson hardly know each other.
Timing is everything. Let’s say gas is fired, which is the likely outcome. It will be another coaching quest. Teams like to move fast because the competition for top candidates is fierce, which raises questions: Would Woody Johnson be involved in the process? Would he be attending from England via Zoom? Would the jets wait for him to get back? Candidates want to know who is responsible.
Rent a minority. There is a general focus on minority attitudes. Woody Johnson, who has hired two black head coaches (Herm Edwards and Todd Bowles), will be in the spotlight because a government report says he made racist comments as an ambassador. One may wonder if this would increase his desire and / or affect his ability to hire a minority candidate like Eric Bieniemy, the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Big name hunt. As the owner from 2000 to 2017, Woody Johnson loved making lively moves, especially with quarterbacks. (See: Brett Favre and Tim Tebow. ) Knowing Johnson, he’s probably thrilled at the prospect of starting over with Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence.
Social justice. Christopher’s results on the field have been dismal – 16-41 with him in charge – but he is considered a player-friendly boss who has (literally) stood by his players during times of contention. Woody Johnson was never able to make that kind of connection. So it makes sense to keep Christopher as a channel for the players.
2. Double standards? If Gase is committed to the youth movement, he should redistribute the stretcher as he walks back and give newcomer La’Mical Perine more work than Frank Gore. For a winning team building for the future, it makes little sense to have a 37-year-old as the primary ball carrier.
Since Le’Veon Bell was boxed, Perine has received most of the game time (120 snaps at Gores 85), but he’s only got 32 transfers at Gores 44. This is hardly a tremendous inequality, but it certainly raises an eyebrow. So why is it happening? Two thoughts:
• Game selection from our NFL experts »
• PickCenter »| ESPN Chalk More NFL Coverage
Gase’s well-documented affinity with Gore, the third-leading rusher in NFL history, influences his judgment. He said that Gore is « playing at one of the higher levels of anyone we have right now, » but it should be noted that he’s 46th. Place occupied by 47 qualified rushers in yards per carry (3). 6).
The other thought is that Perine (also average 3). 6 yards per carry) has not proven any special properties. So why should he be the guy?
Conclusion: Gore shouldn’t be buried because of its age, but the bulk of the litter should go to Perine. Gase has seven games to get it right.
3. KB better than LB: Gase took a lot of flak for how he used Bell, but did anyone check him out in Kansas City? It was horrible – 16 rushes for 54 yards. Maybe it wasn’t a Jets thing; Maybe it was a Bell thing.
Who could have imagined that Kalen Ballage would be the Jets’ best return this season? Yes, you read that right. And they have to deal with him on Sunday in the SoFi stadium.
Ballage, cut by the Jets after doing some pass protection missions against the Denver Broncos in week four, landed on the Los Angeles Chargers training team and worked his way up into a prominent role – 33 carries for 137 yards in the last two games.
4. Almost Toast: It’s rare for a team to be eliminated from the playoff competition before Thanksgiving, but the Jets (0-9) are staring at that possibility and it’s only week 11. According to ESPN Stats & Information Research, there are six scenarios involved. Instead of listing them all and complicating the inevitable, just know this:
If they lose to the Chargers and the Miami Dolphins or Indianapolis Colts win, the Jets will kick off. It would be her 10th. Getting out of the playoffs year in a row, one that shy away from the longest drought in franchise history (1970-80). .
5. Did you know already? The Jets have lost 14 straight games dating back to 2016 when their starting quarterback was off the lineup. That includes a 0-9 mark without Sam Darnold. Joe Flacco, who is replacing the injured Darnold, is hoping to end the series on Sunday. Flacco is 0-3.
ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini is joined by former jet / college football analyst Anthony Becht, who shares insights into Trevor Lawrence. “Listen here
6. Dynamic Duo: Anthony Becht, former college football analyst, brings up an interesting possibility in terms of the draft. He believes the team’s first choice should hire Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott, who will match him with Lawrence.
« That could be a package deal, » Becht said on ESPN’s Flight Deck podcast, explaining that Lawrence’s familiarity with the offense would get him way ahead of the rookie curve. « Could you imagine the advantage for a team? . . . It makes too much sense. It’s a no-brainer. «
7. Hole in Trevor’s game? Interesting take on Lawrence from former NFL coach and offensive guru June Jones: Although he described Lawrence as « a superior athlete who plays quarterback » and « a great leader », he wondered about his accuracy on long balls and hit his Completion Percentage Before (71%) is inflated because of so many screen passes.
« The only question is how exactly does he throw off the field. « said Jones, who has an instructional video on CoachTube. com. « He has enormous one-size receivers at Clemson and does passes in the field, but in the movie I saw, receivers often make great catches with balls that are there but not right on the money. «

The numbers support his opinion. Before that weekend, Lawrence was 10 to 29 (35%) on passes from at least 20 airfields, which is 63rd, according to ESPN Stats & info data. Occupied place in the country. In case you’re wondering, Ohio state Justin Fields was 8-versus-11 (73%).
8. No excuses: Injuries are always talked about a lot around the Jets, but they were relatively lucky with only two players injured at the end of the season – cornerback Brian Poole (shoulder) and defensive end Kyle Phillips (ankle). .
9. Chill in California: Safety for Beginners Ashtyn Davis still doesn’t own a car. Every day he rides his bike from his apartment to set up the jets. It’s only 10 minutes, but one morning it was only 23 degrees – weather shock for someone from Santa Cruz, California.
10. The last word: « I feel like every newcomer, we all have this chip on our shoulders. We all want to be the reason we win. I have the feeling that every rookie takes this approach « – tackle Mekhi Becton, one of 12 rookies on the roster.
