Adam Gase needs to live up to his reputation! Dan Leberfeld

Even with injury issues at quarterback, and being forced to play Luke Falk against Cleveland, where is the Jets’ offensive innovation?

A lot of us thought, including me, that Adam Gase was a masterful offensive play-caller. That is what we heard. But we haven’t seen too much of that so far. We didn’t see it in the opener with Darnold, and we didn’t see it in the second game without Darnold.

Look, I know the Jets’ offense hasn’t been dealt the best hand in some ways, but we’re also not seeing the deft play-calling expected from Gase, considering how Peyton Manning raves about him. Manning called Miami for him and also the Jets, vouching for the coach.

So while the Jets are far from a perfect team, the head coach needs to be more of an offensive guru. That is why he was hired.

The Jets need to see more offensive innovation from their new head coach moving forward, regardless of who’s under center.

Isn’t that what Christopher Johnson signed up for when he hired Gase?
