Make In-Game Adjustments
While Joe Judge has yet to coach an NFL game, Adam Gase has coached plenty. And he must realize he is on the hot seat in large part because of his lack of in-game adjustments.
No matter if a team is up by 30 or down by 20, a coach must constantly be altering the game plan in order to prevent predictability. This being something that has plagued Gase for years. Last season, the Jets offense played its best football in the first half and fell apart in the second due to not changing their game plan. His offense posted 3.5 yards per carry and a 65% completion rate in the first half, but 3.1 yards per carry on a 58.5% completion rate in the second.
Gase must learn to make better in-game adjustments in order to keep the Jets in-game, and Judge must learn to not make those same mistakes. Look at Andy Reid and the Chiefs, who could flip between pass or run heavy any given quarter. In 2020, a team can have all the talent in the world, but the one that has better preparation and coaching will be the one that comes away with a win each week.
