Six of the National Football League's eight head-coaching vacancies are filled with the New York Jets having selected former Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase to be their next head coach, and former Cincinnati Bengals assistant Vance Joseph is "one strong possibility as defensive coordinator" for Gase if the Bengals don't hire him, according to a report via Twitter from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Bengals and Dolphins are the only two remaining NFL teams with vacancies. The six others all have found new head coaches this week. Joseph was the defensive backs coach in Cincinnati in 2014 and 2015 before spending 2016 as the Miami Dolphins' defensive coordinator under Gase and becoming the Broncos' head coach in 2017. The Broncos fired Joseph last week - having completed their first back-to-back losing seasons since 1971-1972. Multiple media outlets reported that Joseph's hot seat grew hotter during the Broncos' four-game losing skid after they beat the Bengals, 24-10, in … [Read more...] about Report: Vance Joseph may be defensive coordinator candidate for New York Jets’ Adam Gase

The New York Jets have their new head coach. The team plans to hire former Dolphins coach Adam Gase, a league source confirmed Wednesday night. He replaces Todd Bowles, who was fired on Dec. 30 after after four seasons without reaching the playoffs. Gase will try to change the Jets' fortunes and lead them back to the postseason for the first time in eight years, the second-longest drought in franchise history. Gase, 40, went 23-25 in three seasons with the Dolphins. He dominated the Jets over that stretch, going 5-1. He's a risky choice, an offensive mind who never got his offense clicking in Miami. But his teams were sabotaged by injuries and poor quarterback play. The hope is that things will be much, much different with a young quarterback like Sam Darnold. The Jets interviewed eight candidates for their head coaching opening. But the decision seemed to come down to Gase, Baylor coach Matt Rhule and former Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Green Bay Packers will line up Sunday against the New York Jets with right tackle Bryan Bulaga for the first time since Dec. 2, as the veteran has come back from a torn medial collateral ligament that knocked him out of the Cardinals game three weeks ago. His return bolsters an offensive line that has been in flux since that game. Backup offensive tackle Jason Spriggs was ruled out Saturday as he is still experiencing concussion symptoms and did not travel with the team. The Packers will once again be without defensive tackle Kenny Clark, who was ruled out Friday with an elbow injury. Wide receiver Randall Cobb (concussion) was considered doubtful coming in and he is inactive, meaning the free agent-to-be will miss his seventh game of the year. The team made a roster move Saturday by promoting running back Lavon Coleman off the practice squad to replace injured cornerback Will Redmond, who was placed on IR. Joining Spriggs, Clark and Cobb as inactive … [Read more...] about Bryan Bulaga makes his return, Randall Cobb out for Green Bay Packers vs. New York Jets
Here's a position-by-position analysis of how the Green Bay Packers graded out during their 44-38 overtime win Sunday at the New York Jets. Quarterbacks: How do you not give Aaron Rodgers (103.8 rating) an A? He brought the Packers back from down 15 in the fourth quarter. He made plays with his legs (five rushes for 32 yards) and arm. This was the quarterback the Packers were expecting to see all season. Grade: A Running backs: Jamaal Williams (156 yards in total offense) had a good game running and receiving, though he did whiff on a blitz pickup in the fourth quarter that allowed a sack. Grade: B+ Offensive line: Right tackle Bryan Bulaga, right guard Lucas Patrick and center Corey Linsley were very good in the run game. Rodgers was sacked four times but also had all day to throw on some other plays. Grade: B+ Wide receivers: Davante Adams was the main target early and caught 11 passes, though mostly on screens and hitches (6.5-yard average).
