Several Jets players met with the media on Zoom calls the day after the team’s season ended. They were all asked what was missed by Gates, who had just finished 2–14 in their fifth straight losing season and tenth of the playoffs.
Each gave a similar answer for aircraft lacking a winning identity and culture.
The Jets team hopes to solve this issue with the appointment of Robert Saleh as their new coach. Saleh comes to airplanes after stints with successful organizations such as 49ers and Seahawks. He has one Super Bowl episode and has gone another.
Saleh made the impression on aircraft decision-makers that he could be desperate Factor of change required for the organization. He seems to have the personality and makeup to inspire the team and propel him in the right direction. It’s something Gates struggled with in coaching coach Adam Gas and Todd Bowles.
This season, Saleh said of his philosophy, “Offense, defense and special teams don’t matter.” “It is the mentality of the responsible person that creates an atmosphere in which players compete and players fight for each other, and players have a true love for each other.”
Saleh held the position Seahawks Defense Quality Control Coach From 2011-13. That’s a low-key position, but Saleh has been watching Seattle coach Pete Carroll in action every day. Culture is a word overused in sports, but Carroll has created culture in Seattle.
“The only thing they pushed so much in Seattle is just the culture,” said Gates offensive George Vant, who played for the Seahawks from 2016-19. “We have to change the culture. We have to bring the culture here. I think that’s what they committed to do.”
Fante referred to Carroll as the one setting the tone in Seattle.
“Every place is different.” In Seattle, the home is the culture, Vant said. “The way he comes to work every day with an excitement that makes you feel like you’re not at work. You enjoy playing football and bonding between your teammates and coaches every day.”
Both Bowles and Gas tried to establish a culture, but failed. Neither of them had the huge personality to make a change immediately. They both believed that they could do that over time by bringing in certain types of players and winning. Rex Ryan changed the culture of the Gates when he walked in the door, and the players bought it when the team started winning, and that led to two matches for the AFC title. Then the planes let some of the main team leaders out of the door and the team felt turned away. Aircraft have been trying to regroup since then.
For a long time now, there is There was no identity to being an airplane.
“Just a real identity,” said full back Tarel Basham at the end of the season about what the team lacks, “As much as you see when you look at the D line, what you see when you look at high school, what do you see when you look at the attack line, what you see when you look at Our receiving corps, an identity. This is something I feel lost. “
Players come and go and there is no legacy, as is the case with teams like the Ravens, the Steelers, or the Patriots. Saleh will not be able to change that overnight. It’ll take time, and General Manager Joe Douglas has to stock up on the list of players who will be staying here for more than two years.
Still, the fit feels He can change the conversation about airplanes When he walks in the door. In a way, he actually did, when you look at fan reaction to this Thursday night ad. Aircraft fans globally have not been pleased with this decision for a long time.
Saleh spoke in 2017 about Carole’s influence on him.
“The biggest influence I got from Coach Carroll is from a philosophy point of view,” Salih said, according to ESPN. Understand who you are as a person. Understand what is important to you as a person. How to apply it to the message you are trying to convey. Understand that every person has a style and that every style is the right one provided you apply it in the right way. So, from a philosophy point of view, talk to People and dealing with people is where I have grown the most from Coach Carroll. “
