Gase should be extra motivated to face Bills! Dan Leberfeld

Florham Park – Of course Adam Gase wants to win his Jets debut to get off to a good start as Gang Green’s head coach.

But he should be extra motivated to face off against Sean McDermott’s Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Why? Because the last time Gase squared off against that coach, and that team, he got his butt kicked, in a 42-17 Buffalo win over Miami in Week 17. Gase was fired shortly after that game.

While Gase is now coaching a different team, this game is likely still sticking in his craw. After all, it was the last time he coached a regular season game.

“We just got drummed,” Gase said after that game.

Of course Gase is highly-motivated to win the Jets’ home-opener and get off on the right foot with his new club, and that should be his main motive.

But he’s also not going to want to be out-coached like he was in Week 17 last year by McDermott.

Gase has way too much pride for that.
