Jets head coach Adam Gase made a bold statement about the defending champions, and let’s just say that he surprised us a lot. The New England Patriots won Super Bowl LIII, and Gase didn’t really like it. So, he made sure everyone knows that he came to the big city to defeat the New England Patriots. Gase delivered this message to his team, and we believe he is determined to turn his dreams into reality.
“He’s going for that one team that’s been winning every single
year in the division,” Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley told media members. “He said that’s one of the main
reasons he came here. We all believe that. And the guys that are the new
additions to the team … we’re pretty much here for the same reason. We know
what team’s been up top for a long time. We feel we have the tools, the players
and the game-plan to get that done.
the end of the day, history shows who we have to beat to get to that top spot.
Not overlooking anybody else in the division definitely or anybody else on our
schedule, but we know if you want to get to where we got to be, we know what
chair we got to knock off.”
Did Gase forget that the Patriots have owned the
division for two decades? Even Sam Darnold knows it. He knows that the Patriots
have run the division for his entire life. The Pats won six Lombardi Trophies
in the Brady-Belichick era, and won 15 of the last 16 division titles.
Gase gave his team enough confindence for the upcoming
starts off from a mental standpoint,” Mosley said. “You got to know where you
are. You got to know where the team is with a new set of coaches on both sides.
The intensity that the coaches (have) themselves to get us in the right position
brings a mentality to the players. We feed off that energy. If they’re
confident, then that makes us confident. When we’re both confident together –
especially knowing our game-plan and what we can and can’t do – that can make
us a dangerous team.”
