Sabo Radio 58 hits on the New York Jets’ canceled practice Thursday as well as the meaningless Le’Veon Bell vs. Adam Gase rumble.
The New York Jets joined the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Football Team Thursday morning when they officially canceled practice. After those three announced the cancelation, multiple teams followed (Tennessee Titans, Arizona Cardinals, etc.).
Players and coaches huddled up at the team’s facility. Christopher Johnson and Joe Douglas were also there. By the time the conversation started, it was evident to the Jets that the players did not want to practice.
Friday’s scheduled off-day will remain firm, which means Saturday will mark the first chance for the Jets to hit the practice field again.
Elsewhere, the Le’Veon Bell vs. Adam Gase rumble has increased tensions thanks to hamstring gate at 1 Jets Drive. Gase said his running back had a hamstring injury and that he took him out of practice due to “precautionary” reasons. Bell, on the other hand, completely disputed the head coach’s claim.
This marks the first real instance of public trouble between the two individuals. But in the end, it matters very little.
Squabbles such as this become a blip on the radar for winning organizations. The Earl Thomas noise will be gone in a couple of days. Why? Well, it’s pretty obvious: the Baltimore Ravens are a proven winning organization.
It should not be Bell vs. Gase; it should be the Jets vs. the NFL world. Until the Jets build a proper personnel infrastructure and put forth a proven track record, narratives such as Bell vs. Gase hold little meaning—especially in the New York market that hops on everything.
