New York Jets fans execute a faint “fire Adam Gase” chant at Lucas Oil Stadium despite the COVID-19 restrictions and road conditions.
It wasn’t loud, and by no means was it one that’ll be remembered until the sports fan’s dying day. But it was still impressive in spite of overwhelming restrictions.
New York Jets fans somehow managed to get a faint “fire Gase” chant in at Lucas Oil Stadium at some point during the team’s horrific 36-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. They did so despite the fact only 7,500 fans were allowed in the building.

Adam Gase, 42, is now 7-12 over his first 19 games as Jets head coach. He has, amazingly, started his second-consecutive season 0-3, and this time, Sam Darnold didn’t come down with mono.
This year, nothing has gone right. Not even the defense can come close to the level of play it put forth under Gregg Williams in 2019. Without Jamal Adams, the lack of talent and abundance of injuries has just been too much for the team to overcome.
Of course, the media and fan noise in Gase’s direction has been clear and heavy since his January 2019 hire. Not until Sunday has any legitimate report surfaced about the organization taking a hard look at the head coach’s current status.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that the Jets will be looking closely at Gase in Week 3 and 4, which extends to this Thursday night’s game against the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium.
In spite of COVID-19 restrictions and the road scene, Jets fans still made sure their voice was heard in Week 3, and each of them is hoping Mortensen’s report has legs.
