After the Jets' 26-18 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, safety and team captain Jamal Adams defended head coach Adam Gase while talking to media in the locker room.
"Right now, Adam is our coach and I'm pretty sure he's going to continue to be the coach, so we have faith in him," Adams said. "That's not going to change. Whoever is in the building, that's who we're riding with. So I got his back, and that's just what it is."
A very calm Adams was honest with reporters while talking about the current state of the team.
"I just don't want anymore stories about me," Adams said. "As crazy as this might sound to some, I'm not trying to be a distraction to this team, I'm just trying to win. I want to do everything I can to help this team win, so it's about us. It's not about anybody else, it's always going to about us. So right now, yeah, I'm calm... I'm very honest. I'll never do something fake, I'm very honest."
Adams has kept the same mentality from last week's game against the Jaguars -- before all the trade deadline rumors -- when he said "I just want to win." The safety even was willing to put that loss on his shoulders and take any blame.
"Right now, we just took a tough loss, divisional opponent," Adams said. "And obviously, guys are not happy. I'm not happy about it. We gotta move on. I don't want to make that about me right now."
