Adam Gase thinks his crew might be aggressive this season.
Gase, who is ready to enter his first 12 months because the Jets coach, was requested about his expectations for 2019 when he met with reporters Wednesday.
“I like how they work. I love how meetings went in the spring,” Gase stated, by way of the Jets official web site. “I love the eye to element, I love how our gamers went out on the sphere and grinded. I love the way in which they compete. These are good attributes to have earlier than we put the pads on.
“We will play significant video games in the long run of November and December. That is what we’ll do.”
Gase stated he was “excited” for coaching camp, which is ready to start this week.
“The last couple of days have seemed like forever and everybody’s just ready to get going, get the players in here (and) get our meetings going,” Gase stated. “There is some good juice going in our building right now. We’re ready. We’re 0-0 and it’s going to be all about how we come together. We all know we’re starting at 0-0 and it’s time to go to work and see how the chips fall.”
Quarterback Sam Darnold will start his second season because the Jets’ starter after finishing 57.7% of his passes and throwing for 17 touchdowns, together with 15 interceptions, in 13 video games as a rookie in 2018.
Darnold stated the Jets have an opportunity to rack up “a lot of wins.”
“I think there’s enough talent on this roster to be a playoff contender,” Darnold stated. “But again, for us, it’s a one-week-at-a-time mentality. We have to take it like that. If guys are looking too forward in the future, I feel like we could slip up here in the present. I think you definitely have expectations of making it to the playoffs, and we definitely have the talent to do it, but I think the way you get there is focusing one week, really one day at a time.”
The Jets completed 2018 with a 4-12 file and missed the playoffs for an eighth straight season. They fired former coach Todd Bowles in late December and employed Gase to switch him.
