Disgruntled Jets fans organize ‘Fire Adam Gase’ protest
The New York Jets have tumbled out of the gates this season to the tune of a 0-2 record, and the team’s long-suffering fans have already grown weary of of the ongoing ineptitude.
The Jets have looked anything but competitive in the season’s first two games, losing 27-17 to the division-rival Buffalo Bills in the opener before dropping its Week 2 showdown with the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 31-13.
Now in his second season as head coach, Adam Gase is already under fire and on the hot seat. The embattled coach has received the sometimes-dreaded vote of confidence from Jets owner Christopher Johnson, but that likely just inspired a group fans to start calling for Gase’s ouster.
An intrepid and motivated contingent of Jets fans have organized a protest outside the team’s practice facility for Thursday afternoon. The stated goal is to raise awareness about how the Jets are saddled with the “worst coach in NFL history,” not to mention a “clueless” owner, and to confront the organization about it.
Details of the “Fire Adam Gase Protest” follow.

It appears that the odds of the Jets eventually having their wish granted are favorable. Odds Shark pegged Gase as the NFL head coach most likely to the first to receive his pink slip.

It merits noting that Jets fans have become known over the years for being proactive about expressing their unhappiness with the organization’s direction and organizing grassroots movements that seek to oust who they deem as unfavorable team employees.
Regardless of the impact of this latest Jets fans-led protest movement, the team will attempt to right the ship Sunday in a Week 3 showdown with the 1-1 Indianapolis Colts.
