New York Jets head coach Adam Gase wasn’t happy with the help around Luke Falk during Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots.
The New York Jets are off to a dreadful start thus far in 2019. Down to their third-string quarterback Luke Falk, the Jets have fallen to 0-3 on the season. On Sunday, they couldn’t get the job done, as they lost 30-14 to the New England Patriots.
Falk struggled for Gang Green. He completed 12 of his 22 throws for 98 yards and an interception. However, head coach Adam Gase isn’t pointing the finger at his quarterback. Instead, he makes it known that he isn’t satisfied with the on-field support surrounding Falk.
“There was a lot of things he did really well that he didn’t get a lot of help with,” Gase told reporters after the loss, per Gary Phillips of Jets Wire. “That was frustrating to see that the guy that’s in his first NFL start knows what’s going on and other guys aren’t executing the way it should be done.”
Running back Le’Veon Bell only had 35 yards on 18 carries (1.9 yards-per-carry). Their two leading receivers were Braxton Berrios (two receptions for 29 yards) and Bell (four receptions for 28 yards). Receiver Robby Anderson only had three receptions for 11 yards on the day.
The offensive line was bullied by New England’s front seven all game long as well.
With Sam Darnold still recovering from mononucleosis, the Jets will go into a much-needed BYE week. Their next three games after their week off will be against the Eagles, Cowboys, and Patriots once more. That being said, an 0-6 start is very possible for New York.
