Adam Gase, Sam Darnold explain tense sideline exchange

Adam Gase and Sam Darnold had what appeared to be a disagreement on the sideline during the New York Jets’ disappointing loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night, but both the coach and quarterback insist that is not what happened.

After one of several drives stalled without points, Gase and Darnold had an exchange that looked like it got a bit heated. The reaction of backup quarterback David Fales also made it seem like the conversation was an uncomfortable one, at the very least.

Gase and Darnold both downplayed the exchange while speaking with reporters on Friday. Gase claimed he and the quarterback were actually venting about another player who didn’t do his job.

Darnold had a similar explanation, noting that he was frustrated by the situation but was not having any type of disagreement with Gase. He also commented on the look Fales gave.

There’s no way of knowing if Gase and Darnold are telling the truth, and it would not be a surprise if the discussion was a bit more tense than they are willing to admit. Gase has seemed frustrated with some of his players recently, and the Jets fell to 5-9 with Thursday’s loss. When expectations aren’t met, tempers flare.
