The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Gase Must Oversee His Team

Gase Must Oversee His Team

Gotta captain the ship
Publish Date: 11/10/2018
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis
MIAMI GARDENS, FL - SEPTEMBER 23: Miami Dolphins Head Coach Adam Gase on the sidelines during the NFL football game between the Oakland Raiders and the Miami Dolphins on September 23, 2018, at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL. (Photo by Doug Murray/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images)

Adam Gase came to the Miami Dolphins as an offensive guru and a creative offensive mind. When he was named the head coach, he said he would call the offensive plays because he is used to doing it. That’s fine and it’s his right to call the offensive plays. Andy Reid and Sean Payton are head coaches and they call their teams offensive plays as has a lot of other head coaches, but the problem that can happen is it can take away from your responsibilities as a head coach. Gase is an offensive minded coach so naturally he will be more involved in the offensive game plan, but on Sunday when Reshad Jones took himself out of the game due to him not being happy about the safeties rotating and taking away from his playing time, Gase said he didn’t know what was going on. What? You’re the head coach how in the world do you not know what is going on with your football team? A head coach should always have the pulse of his football team and know what’s going on good or bad. They should also be aware of the tension and issues that are going on. There is no reason he couldn’t have known what is going on. Instead of looking at photos of your offensive plays by yourself on the sideline, you should figure out what’s going on with one of your better players on defense. You look as clueless as Joe Philbin some five years ago when he was unaware of the bullying going on in his locker room on your watch. It’s no different than any job, when you are the head person in charge you should know what’s going on.

Then the day after the game, you say you met with Jones and hashed out everything and we’re on the same page and everything is good. Ok how is it good for a player to take himself out of the game because his feelings are hurt from his playing time getting cut? It’s not ok. Jones basically quit on his team and instead of the talking about a good defensive performance on Sunday, we have to talk about why Jones took himself out of the game and nobody knew why. Was it not OK for Lawrence Timmons the team the night before the game last year, but it’s ok for Jones to take himself out of the game for no reason? For Gase not to have a clue to what’s going on with his team should get him fired after 3 years. Gase must have had an idea of what the team was going to do on defense Sunday right? I mean he does have a say in the game planning, so he must have known Jones’ playing time would have been cut correct? Obviously Gase is more in tuned with his offense than he is with his team as a whole. Gase hired Dowell Loggains as offensive coordinator, even though he doesn’t call the plays, and he knows the offense. Why don’t you just delegate and let him call the offensive plays so Gase can oversee everything.

On top of that, by having Jones’ back, Gase basically threw his defensive coordinator Matt Burke under the bus. Burke needed to shake things up on defense, so he made some changes in the secondary by playing rookie Minkah Fitzpatrick on the boundary and free safety at times. That meant cutting into Jones’ playing time. Jones is a good player, but he does have a reputation as a player who likes to free-lance and go off of his assignments and that exposes him to leaving his teammates out to dry and give up big plays. Burke obviously had enough and made a bold decision which is what you have to do as a coach. Could Burke have communicated with Jones better? Sure, so he and Jones were on the same page, but Burke wanted to shake things up because they defense had been pathetic for the last month. I just don’t understand how Gase was so clueless as to what was going on. I would think Burke kept Gase in the loop on his plan to change things on defense, but if that didn’t happen then the Dolphins should fire the whole coaching staff. Good for Burke for trying to shake things up, but shame on Gase for being as clueless as he was.
