Rapoport’s blockbuster on Gase’s job security Dan Leberfeld

There’s been a lot of speculation on Adam Gase’s job security entering the Jets’ Thursday night’s game against Denver. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport made an announcement on Thursday morning on where things stand.

“Heading into tonight’s matchup against the Denver Broncos on the NFL Network, it does not appear Gase’s job hangs in the balance pending the result of the game,” announced Rapoport on NFL.com. “According to those informed of the decision-making, the thinking is that firing Gase would not only be counterproductive in general, but also potentially damaging to quarterback Sam Darnold.”

Rapoport added: “History has shown that brutal performances for woeful teams on Thursday nights or right before bye weeks can lead to job turnover. But that isn’t slated to happen this time.”

Rapoport’s announcement comes a few days after this tweet from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen:

“Jets coach Adam Gase is under more intense scrutiny this week and it’s not just the external noise from media or fans. League sources say even w/ injuries, Jets’ brass monitoring this week closely, today vs. Colts but perhaps more telling is TNF vs. Broncos. Interesting watch,” Mortensen tweeted Sunday morning.
