Sluggish practices are the latest concern for Gase, Jets
An 0-2 start with dismal performances in both games has the New York Jets in an early season hole. “Nobody said anything during the week,” Gase said Wednesday. Many fans and some media pointed the blame at Gase for not overseeing better, sharper practices, although coordinator Gregg Williams is responsible for the defense. “Yeah, I mean everybody has a different feel of how practice goes,” Gase said. “We, as players, have to come out there and execute.”NOTES: The Jets signed S Marqui Christian to the active roster from Chicago's practice squad.
