Earlier today Chris Mortensen tweeted that this week could be a pivotal week in the eyes on Jets decision makers on the future of head coach Adam Gase.
In the tweet, Mort shared that Gase is "under more intense scrutiny this week, and it’s not just the external noise from media or fans," adding that the Jets front office is "monitoring this week closely."
Mort shared that before the Jets took the field on Sunday during the Colts - a game that ended in a 36-7 loss for Gase's squad. The Jets scored their touchdown in the first quarter before Indy went on a 19-0 run in the last three quarters to secure the win.
Now the franchise has to pick up the pieces and play on a short week as they welcome the Broncos to New York on Thursday.
The Jets are currently 0-3, and have had some key injuries and are breaking in some young players including at quarterback, but another disappointing showing could mean the franchise decides to cut their losses decide to move on, according to Mort.
The 2020 season is Gase's second with the Jets, after leading them to a 7-9 mark and 3rd place finish in the AFC East in 2019. Prior to that he went 23-25 with the Dolphins before being fired following a 7-9 finish in 2018. Gase's lone winning season came his first year in Miami when the Dolphins went 10-6 and finished 2nd in the AFC East.
