Gase preferred Mayfield and Allen over Darnold in 2018 Draft

Recommended Posts

Quote

It was the worst-kept secret in the Dolphins’ building. Gase believed that Mayfield, who rolls into town with the Browns for a Monday night showdown against the Jets, was clearly better than Sam Darnold, according to sources familiar with the situation. In fact, people in the know revealed that Gase had more of an affinity for Josh Allen than Darnold too.

The Dolphins didn’t schedule a private workout on campus with Darnold or bring him in for a visit, because Gase simply didn’t think he was as good as Mayfield and Allen.

LOL - this gets better and better.

 

Maybe he can still get Rosen into the building and change his attitude.

If Gase can’t turn Darnold into a Matt Ryan type of QB that is on him. The talent is there, he just needs good coaching. 

 

I’m very happy the Jets hired Gase though, I could see this team turning into a dumpster fire really quickly. They have had a poorly run organization for years.

Was he both a right Josh and a Wrong Josh fan over Darnold too.  Maybe he can still get Rosen into the building.

 

😂

He didn’t like Rosen but they said he was oddly fascinated with him and used colorful metaphors  to describe him :lol:

And so it begins.

 

You'll need more than smelling salts, Mr. Gase.    There's blood in the water and the New York media sharks are circling...

The timing of this article is very suspect 

The timing makes sense right between the Allen and mayfield games. The problem for Gase is that Manish went to his old pals in Miami for the dirt and I’m sure they had no problem dishing it.

There is no way Gase survives the N.Y. media.

 

My thought exactly, haha. He seemed to have a difficult time during his presser yesterday, getting kinda snippy and short with them. He's a putz. Might be a decent X's and O's kinda guy but he's got like, zero leadership ability. He reminds me of Josh McDaniels in that he believes he's the smartest guy in any room. (For any insight on McDaniels, check out "Slow Getting Up" a book by Nate Jackson, a WR/career special teamer who played under McDaniels when he coached in Denver). He also believes he doesn't have to answer to anyone or justify anything he does. Don't expect your players to take accountability when it's clear you can't take it yourself.

eh, i maybe believe the Mayfield part but not sure about Allen; if he was referring to pure talent I'd believe that but i'm not sure even he missed that Darnold was the most ready straight away and had the longer runway.  (for the record i think Allen will get there)

 

someone is just trying to fuel the fire, gosh, i though our local media coverage was prickly...

 

Darnold was the right pick where he was taken.

Yikes! Is this some kind of left-handed hex on the Bills? IDK but I think I could have gone the rest of my life without this little tidbit from Mr. Throw-my-whole-team-under-the-bus

I hope when Gase went home after the game, all ready for a hug off the wife, he found an empty house and a note on the fridge that simply said: "see how you ***** like it"

And this is a day after he publicly criticized every unit on his team like nothing was on the coaching staff. 

Never understood how this guy became known as a quarterback/offensive guru - I think he was just luck to ride on Peyton Mannnig's coattails. 

May be one and done in Gotham for Gase.

Darnold was the right pick where he was taken.

 

 

It wasn’t about the right pick for the Jets - it was about his evaluation as a Dolphin HC.

 

They mention in the article that some of it may be that he knew Darnold was going before the Dolphins pick - where as they were not sure if Allen and/or Mayfield might make it to their pick.

 

He also states that nothing Darnold did WOWED him - not that he would fail, but that he was good at a lot of things, but not great.

 

It just ends up being a bad look long term on a team with a questionable overall relationship between the HC and the team.

Both he and Mcdaniel are classic examples of coordinators who have no business trying to be head coaches.

There was a previous report that he did not want Leveon Bell too, because he didn’t believe in paying a RB that much $
