Adam Gase is not the coach for the Buccaneers
The title for this reason is self-evident. Adam Gase and his offense have decimated the Jets franchise (and the Dolphins to some degree), and numerous players have blossomed in Gase’s absence.

Le’Veon Bell was playing at a Hall of Fame rate before joining the Jets, and during his first season in New York, he saw career lows in most categories. Ryan Tannehill is an example of the opposite, where leaving a Gase-led offense ended with a massive payday and emergence as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
Adam Gase has stifled the development of numerous players, and Sam Darnold is currently moving into his second season with a coach that has never shown prowess with developing quarterbacks.
Darnold does make several errors on his own accord, but a substantial amount of the blame needs to fall on the coaching staff. The third-year quarterback from USC would flourish in an offense under a better coach, and leaving New York could be the only way to save Darnold’s career.
If Tannehill is any indication, Sam Darnold could be an extremely talented player waiting for the right coach (like Bruce Arians) to come along.
