Opening Statement…

Alright, obviously, going into this game, (there are) no playoffs on the line, winning record, all that stuff is out. But we’re playing a team with a lot of talent. And with that being said, I think you start with the running back, you look at C.J. Spiller, and you guys would know this more than I would, he’s averaging 6.5 yards a carry. I don’t know when the last time that happened, I don’t know how Adrian Peterson’s doing in Minnesota, but I can’t remember a guy averaging, going into the last game of the year, 6.5 yards a carry. So the first week, when he went crazy against us, I guess he’s gone crazy against a lot of people, so obviously (they’re) very talented there. You have the (Stevie) Johnson kid with about 1,000 yards receiving again. So they have some weapons, certainly, on offense. Then on defense, I guess it’s kind of quiet (joking), but Mario Williams has 10.5 sacks, so I think that’s pretty good. Then the (Marcell) Dareus kid, I think has 5.5 sacks and then Kyle Williams has 5.0. So, (they’re) obviously capable up front of putting pressure on the quarterback. And then the (Jairus) Byrd kid, I think has five picks. So with that being said, I think the most impressive part of their team may be their special teams. The Bills are always strong on special teams. I think (Rian) Lindell’s maybe only missed one kick the whole season, which is saying something when you kick half your games in Buffalo where the wind can go crazy. But they’re always strong on special teams and this year’s no different.

On how he keeps the team motivated for Sunday…

Well, I think the big thing about motivation is you have an opportunity to go compete. You’re in the National Football League and obviously, that’s your job. But besides that, it’s more about this is an opportunity for you and, shoot, nothing’s ever guaranteed, whether it’s a player, coach, whatever. For some guys in our locker room, it could be the last game they ever play in the National Football League. The last game they could ever play, you never know. But also, it’s just a chance to compete with your teammates and I think that’s a big thing. It’s about being professional and finishing the year no matter what.

On if he’ll give more of an opportunity to the younger players on Sunday…

We’ll see how it goes, but that’s a possibility. Maybe get another young guy up or two. We’ll see how it goes. I know we’ve had some injuries. I’ll get to (the injury report) with you guys. But somebody like Damon Harrison might be a guy that you play some this week. Muhammad Wilkerson’s not practicing today. I might as well give you all this before I forget. So Muhammad Wilkerson had a concussion and knee, so he won’t practice today. All these players won’t practice, Dustin Keller, ankle, Ellis Lankster, concussion, Chaz Schilens, knee, Aaron Berry, hamstring, LaRon Landry, heel and hamstring. So, all those players will not practice. And the guys that will be limited today will be Braylon Edwards with a knee and hamstring, Bryan Thomas, chest (and) Ricky Sapp, ankle. The following players will be full today, that’s Kenrick Ellis, knee, Mark Sanchez, low back, Matt Slauson, knee, Jeff Cumberland, wrist, Calvin Pace, shoulder, Nick Mangold, shoulder, Bart Scott, toe, Joe McKnight, ankle, Bilal Powell, shoulder, Garret McIntyre, elbow, Nick Folk, mid-back, Brandon Moore, hip (and) foot, Tim Tebow, ribs, Sione Po’uha, low back, Greg McElroy, abdomen and Robert Malone illness. So, all those guys are expected to be full today.

On the pass protection against San Diego…

Obviously, against this team that can really rush the passer, as noted with those three guys, you’ve got to try to stay out of third-and-longer situations, clearly. But it falls on a lot of guys, it wasn’t just the offensive line breaking down, it was blitz pickup, it was possibly the quarterback maybe holding it longer or drops not being as consistent as (they should). There were some routes that were a little off. So I think, overall, it was (a lot of factors), which is not unexpected when you have that many sacks.

On how Wilkerson got a concussion after playing every snap…

That’s interesting because obviously, at the end of the game, that was (when it happened). It was kind of news to me that he has a concussion. Hopefully he’ll be able to play.

On when Wilkerson was tested for a concussion…

I think it was after the game. I’m not 100 percent sure. But I know I wasn’t aware of it until yesterday.

On the Philadelphia team coached by his father, Buddy, that recorded 11 sacks in a game…

I think the record is 12 and I think he was with the Bears, when (Buddy Ryan) had that record. We could use some of that this week ourselves. But no, it’s hard to imagine the only reason I knew it was that after the game, the number kept posting up there. I’m like, ‘Oh my goodness, we’ve given up that many sacks?’ I think we had maybe nine or 10 against (Ben) Roethlisberger one year, it’s probably the most I ever had. But I don’t know how to address it, there are clearly several things that went wrong, and to San Diego’s credit, they were able to get that kind of pressure on the quarterback.

On how much he’s concerned that Wilkerson won’t play on Sunday…

That would be a big concern without question because I think Mo’s one of the best interior linemen in the league. Hopefully, he’ll get that kind of respect when the Pro Bowl voting comes out. Again, forget all that, I’d like for Mo to play but I am concerned with the fact that he can’t practice today.

On if the knee injury is also keeping him out of practice today…

Well, it’s (listed as a) concussion and knee (on the injury report), so I’m not sure. But take your choice, he’s not practicing.

On if Tebow will participate in practice as he normally would…

Well, yeah we’ll see how the week goes, on who’s getting what work and all that stuff. But like I said, in the game, Tim would’ve gone in the game, if I would’ve chosen to have him in the game.

On why he would go back to using Tebow in the Wildcat with the way Jeremy Kerley played on Sunday…

Again, I never said I was definitely going to do that.

On if he was upset that his conversation with Tebow requesting not to play leaked out of the organization…

Again, the conversation I had with Tim will be private.

On someone leaking out the nature of his conversation with Tebow…

Again, there are only two people who know what went on in that conversation. (That) would be Tim and I, at least my conversation with him.

On the possibility of all three quarterbacks being active Sunday…

Well, it’s certainly a possibility and right now, with this injury thing, we might not have that many (players available), so we’ll see how it goes as the week goes on. But it’s a possibility that we can dress all three. We’ve only done that once this year, but it could be less than that. I guess we’ll see how the week goes on.

On who will play Sunday if McElroy can’t play…

If Greg can’t go, I don’t know. That’s going to the what-ifs and everything else. Right now, I’m assuming Greg can go, so that’s how I’ll approach the game right now.

On McElroy’s injury…

Well, it looks like he’s practicing full, so it must not be that serious.

On when McElroy suffered his injury during the game…

I have no idea, but you get sacked 11 times.

On if he was told during the game that McElroy was injured…

No, not at all.

On what he learned about himself as a coach this year…

Well, I guess the big thing, I obviously never expected this type of season. There’s no doubt about that. But I guess, the consistency and all that type of stuff, those are things that you’re always shooting for and the frustrating thing to me is that I think that’s kind of what we’ve been lacking. We haven’t had that consistency. When you look at it on offense, there’s times we do a great job protecting the quarterback, do a great job running the football and then there’s other times when, obviously, the protection issues, especially this last week, I guess you can say it was consistent, but not in a good way. So I think that’s it and just trying to keep everybody focused on what’s in front of them. I know are guys are competing. They’re trying to do their best. But I think that’s kind of been disappointing and it’s certainly not something that I expected, so this is uncharted territory for me.

On the run defense improving with the return of Po’uha…

Yeah, it’s great to have Sione in there and you’re right, early in the season with that back (injury), and that was a thing where I never realized the extent of that (injury) but as he missed several games. Then you had Kenrick miss games on top of that, so it was kind of a snowball effect. But I think we are playing better run defense than we did, obviously, at the beginning of the year. So, I’m encouraged with that. I really like the way Mike DeVito’s playing, I think Mike’s doing a tremendous job and, obviously, you see Muhammad Wilkerson doing this. I’d like to get Quinton Coples to where his run technique improves and all that as well. It’s probably not there on par with DeVito or anybody like that yet, but I see some improvements there as well. Overall, I’ve been happy with how the D-line has progressed during the season.

On the performance of the defense without Revis…

Going into this season, I really thought that we were going to have a terrific defense. I absolutely thought that we would, I think I said a top-five defense, but I expected even better than that. Unfortunately, when he was out, obviously we’d much prefer to play with him, because, obviously, in my opinion, he is the top cornerback in football, but I also like the way some of our other guys have stepped up. I like the way (Antonio) Cromartie has stepped up and really filled that number one role. I think Kyle (Wilson) has done a good job overall playing that number two corner. The third corner, from Isaiah Trufant, to Ellis Lankster (to) (Darrin) Walls, we’re competing at that spot as well. Right now, statistically I saw a thing where we were second in the league in pass defense. I think that’s a big credit to the players that we have, guys stepping up in place of Revis and I also think it speaks volumes of the coaching staff. In particular, (Coach) Dennis Thurman and (Coach) Jim O’Neil have done a terrific job with that back end, and obviously (Coach) Mike Pettine and the job he’s done as well.

On the performance of the offense this season…

I think going into the season, I was really excited. I thought we could do a lot of creative things, including using the Wildcat. I thought the Wildcat would probably be more successful than it’s been. The passing game, that’s kind of been a disappointment this year. When you look at it from a numbers standpoint, I think that’s been an obvious disappointment. There are a lot of factors that go into that though. We talk about the loss of Darrelle Revis, but I also think we see the loss of Santonio Holmes, and some of the fronts that we’re getting, I don’t know if you do that if a Santonio Holmes is out there playing receiver. We’ve had some inconsistencies there (with) who’s been healthy (and) who hasn’t. Dustin Keller, I don’t know how many games he’s been healthy for this year also. There are a lot of things that go into it. The turnovers are probably the biggest thing. It’s something that we stressed from day one that has not gone near as well as I had hoped.

On why he thought the Wildcat would be successful…

I think even with what we did previously here, with Brad Smith, some of those types of things. Also, let’s face it, Tim ran a lot of it in Denver. There were things (where) I thought we would probably have a little more success with (than) what we had. Like I said before, it’s not Tim Tebow’s fault or whatever, it just seems like that’s kind of the way it is. Whether defenses are catching up to it a little bit, I’m not sure.

On Tebow’s ability as a Wildcat quarterback…

He’s a full-time quarterback with running back skills. That’s something that you look at as probably an ideal guy at that spot.

On whether using a small and quick player to run the Wildcat might be more effective…

Certainly, when you look at it from a statistical standpoint, I think that could be true. Now look, there have been some third-and-ones where we’ve just run (Tebow) straight into the line and he’s picked those up. I think that’s been good and the average is not going (to be as high because) you’re doing it for a different reason. I know Buffalo will run a little (bit of the) Wildcat on short-yardage as well. Those are things that maybe from a statistical standpoint don’t jump out, but if he converts the first down, obviously that’s a successful play.

On whether Jeremy Kerley will run the Wildcat at Buffalo…

It’s certainly a possibility and if it’s something that they have to prepare for and I wasn’t going to do it, I wouldn’t say it either.

On players he thinks might make the Pro Bowl…

We have some guys definitely deserving of it. I think Antonio Cromartie, obviously, on defense stands out. I’m hoping that Muhammad Wilkerson gets recognized that way. I’m not sure that he will. Sometimes it seems like it takes a couple years, but clearly those guys have jumped out and I think they’re very deserving. LaRon Landry, I think he’s deserving. On offense, obviously, D’Brickashaw Ferguson has had a great year, a fantastic year. Nick Mangold’s been a staple at that Pro Bowl, and Brandon Moore. If they don’t get on the team, I expect some guys to receive some votes for sure.

On whether he thinks the team can make the playoffs next year without rebuilding it entirely…

First off, really for me to look past this week probably is not really appropriate right now, but maybe next week I’ll be ready to answer it. I have one game left here. We have one game left. That’s where all my attention is going to be and I think that’s what the fans deserve. I can probably give you an answer, but I’d rather dial in to this football team and be able to answer that question next week.

Pressure of Gase, Maccagnan 00:00:28
Former Jets quarterback Ray Lucas doesn't believe Adam Gase has proven he?s a QB 'whisperer' but all pressure shifts to GM Mike Maccagnan

SNY's Jets analyst Ray Lucas is a big fan of the team hiring defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. But what about new head coach Adam Gase?

Williams has the experience and track record necessary to deem him a solid replacment to Kacy Rodgers next season. But, given the Jets' priority to build the team around Sam Darnold, Lucas isn't too keen on Gase being the guy to develop him.

Lucas explained why on "Loud Mouths..."

The Cowboys are taking a shot on a failed second-rounder for the Jets in WR Devin Smith, signing him to a futures contract on Friday. 

Smith was drated 37th overall by Gang Green back in 2015 after having a superb collegiate career at Ohio State. However, the injury bug wasn't too friendly to the now 26-year-old. 

During his rookie season, Smith tore his ACL in Week 14 against the Titans, ending his year with only 115 yards and one touchdown. In 2016, Smith didn't see much playing time, playing in only four games after starting the year on the PUP list.

The Jets have shored up their new head coach and defensive coordinator, but an offensive coordinator still needs to be brought aboard. And on Friday, another potential candidate surfaced in Scott Linehan

The Cowboys let Linehan know they are going in a different direction, and the decision comes merely days after head coach Jason Garrett said he didn't believe any big changes were coming to his staff for next season. 

In an official statement, Garrett said it was mutual that both sides parted ways.

It's never too early to look at Super Bowl LIV odds.

According to BetOnline.ag, the Jets find themselves with 66/1 odds to win their first Lombardi Trophy since 1968. The Bills, Bengals, Broncos, Lions, Raiders, Bucs and Redskins all share the same odds. The Giants are in the middle of the pack, owning 40/1 odds.

After his introductory press conference, Jets new head coach Adam Gase has been the subject of numerous memes that have gained some popularity on social media.

So has Gase seen them? Not in the slightest.

"I don't have Twitter or Instagram. I don't read the Internet. I don't watch TV," Gase said on ESPN's "The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz." "All that stuff is irrelevant to me. It's poluttion of the brain. I really don't care. That's not how I operate. I'm here to do one thing and that's to help this organization win."

Jets dream offseason wishlist 00:00:18
SNY's New York Jets analysts pick each of their top three free agents they want the Jets to sign this offseason.

The Jets have their new head coach in place, and as Adam Gase puts together his staff, the next big step is what Gang Green will do this offseason to improve their 53-man roster. 

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan will have almost $100 million ($99,387,909 projected by OverTheCap.com) to work with in free agency, and to explore trades. 

So who should they go after? The SNY Jets crew gave their dream offseason wishlist for the Jets, as they look ahead to the free agent class and players that could be on the market:

Mock drafts are continuing to pour in with three and a half months to go before the NFL draft, and ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has the Jets taking a defensive tackle.

Kiper has the Jets taking Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams with the No. 3 pick, shoring up a defensive line under new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

Though Kiper has the Jets missing out on the highly-touted Nick Bosa (No. 1, Cardinals) and Josh Allen (No. 2, 49ers), it's tough to diminish Williams' ability.

The day the Cleveland Browns named Gregg Williams their interim head coach after firing Hue Jackson, their former defensive coordinator made one thing perfectly clear: The Browns were lucky to have him.

"Since I left Buffalo (in 2003), I had 11 letters to interview for head coaching jobs," Williams said. "Four of them, I didn't even have to interview. Just show up and sign the contract."

Analyzing Gregg Williams hire 00:00:57
SNY's Willie Colon believes new Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will improve defense but his personality might bother Adam Gase.

The Jets officially named Gregg Williams their new defensive coordinator under head coach Adam Gase on Wednesday.

According to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Williams has agreed to a three-year deal with the team. Williams is flying to the New York-New Jersey area to sign the contract and finalize the deal on Wednesday.

Speaking about Williams for the first time on SiriusXM NFL Radio with Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan, Gase said Williams' defenses have always been a tough challenge, mainly due to their intensity level...

Defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers has officially joins the Buccaneers' staff as a defensive line coach, as the team announced numerous assistant hirings on Wednesday.

Rodgers, 49, spent the last four seasons as the Jets defensive coordinator under Bowles and also worked alongside the former Jets head coach in Miami and Dallas as a defensive line coach.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | ArchiveTodd Bowles came to the Jets with the reputation of being one of the best defensive minds in football. And in his first season, it was easy to see why. After that, it was all a steady roll downhill towards the Jets becoming one of the worst defenses in the league.

That's startling considering how they had invested in their defense. For eight straight years, before they took quarterback Sam Darnold, they had taken a defensive player in the first round of the draft. And they had spent big money on defenders in free agency like corners Trumaine Johnson and Morris Claiborne as well as linebacker Avery Williamson.

Yet they still had no pass rush and they wore down late in games. The Jets' defense was a remarkable group of underachievers.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: The Jets' long road from Todd Bowles to Adam Gase began in mid-November, long before either of them were fired from their old jobs. It started after a humiliating, 41-10 home loss by Bowles' Jets to the Buffalo Bills just before the bye week.

The week off gave the entire organization a chance to reassess itself. And the consensus inside the building became that the Jets needed a change.

What happened next was the beginning of what CEO Christopher Johnson later promised was an "extensive" search that over a two-month period included a look at Jim Harbaugh, a flirtation with Mike McCarthy, a push for Matt Rhule and a surprising inability to dismiss Todd Monken. When it was over, they ended up with a new head coach who wasn't on their original list because he was coaching a team in a playoff race with three weeks left in the regular season...

New Jets head coach Adam Gase touched on plenty of topics during his 15-minute press conference on Monday, but he omitted one key name.

The 40-year-old emphasized the importance of instructing a young quarterback like Sam Darnold, not being interested in total team control and, finally, filling out the remainder of his coaching staff. Gregg Williams is the defensive coordinator generating a buzz in New York and, though Gase did not specifically utter his name on Monday, reports say the Jets are close to bringing Williams in.

There is nothing new about the phrase "long-suffering Jets fan," because over the last 50 years there's no doubt they've all suffered enough. Right now, they're in the midst of a particularly difficult period. This is the longest stretch without a playoff berth for the Jets in almost 40 years.

That's why the biggest fear of those long-suffering fans who heard the Adam Gase press conference on Monday is that when it comes to this current playoff drought, eight years still may not be enough.

SNY's Jeane Coakley spoke with New York Jets head coach Adam Gase about Sam Darnold and the team after his introductory press conference.

There may be a reason why things between the Jets and defensive coordinator candidate Gregg Williams have reportedly slowed down. 

Jets new head coach Adam Gase told SNY's Jeane Coakley at his introductory press conference on Monday that one of the things he learned from his time as head coach of the Miami Dolphins was not to rush into hiring the staff. 

"What I mean by that is you don't want to start grabbing guys that might be available," he said. "You might have to take your time, interview guys and I think we have the right mindset right now and heading in the right direction and hopefully soon we'll start getting guys on board."

As the rest of the NFL searches for the "next Sean McVay," Rams running back C.J. Anderson says he has only had one other coach who compares to him: 

Adam Gase

Anderson, who rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns in Los Angeles' 30-22 NFC Divisional win over the Cowboys on Saturday, has seen a revival of sorts of his career under McVay since joining the Rams on Dec. 19.

The Jets have agreed to a contract extension with special teams coach Brant Boyer, reports Adam Caplan of SiriusXM.

Caplan notes that multiple teams would have been interested in hirnig Boyer, whose contract had been set to expire after next season. The 47-year-old Boyer has been with the Jets since 2016 after a stint as the Colts' assistant special teams coach from 2012 to 2015.

As the Jets look to fill out their staff under new head coach Adam Gase, here are the names being considered.

Instead, he will join new head coach Freddie Kitchens and new defensive coordinator Steve Wilks in Cleveland.

In a since-deleted tweet, Jets S Jamal Adams wasn't shy about one free agent he wanted the team to pursue this offseason.

"Yeah I like #55 Dee Ford off that end for us! Let's pay him what he wants!" Adams tweeted at 7:28 p.m. on Saturday as Ford and the Chiefs were crushing the Colts to advance to the AFC Championship Game.

The 27-year-old Ford had a tremendous game on Sunday, with one forced fumble, one sack, and four tackles.
