Only One Hothead Left


Last year Adam Gase famously said the Miami Dolphins had three hotheads on their roster. Jay Ajayi, Jarvis Landry and Gase himself. Fast forward now to March of 2018 and only one of those “hotheads” is still with the organization and it is Adam Gase.

If you needed any more proof that Adam Gase runs 100% of the show in Miami look no further than this past week. If Adam Gase wanted Jarvis Landry to stay in Miami he could have made that happen. Period. End of story. Not even up for debate.

The Dolphins and Landry were not that far apart on the financials with the money Landry and his agent were looking for. At the end of the day though Gase didn’t go to bat for Jarvis Landry and pound the table stating I need this guy to win games. Gase didn’t feel strongly enough to play his power card and demand Landry stay a member of the Miami Dolphins. Gase, as we have seen numerous times in his short time in Miami, seems to have a very thin skin and is stubborn beyond belief. Adam Gase didn’t like having other “hotheads” on his roster and he wants everyone to march in line behind him where he, the King Hothead, barks orders and you do as told.

The fact that a hothead player like Ajayi wouldn’t take Gase’s hidden and sometimes not so hidden messages to heart and would openly disobey him didn’t sit well with Gase. The fact that no matter what Landry did on the field in terms of production, he was still a pain in the neck most of the time off. Whether throwing a temper tantrum on the sideline in the middle of a game and yelling at Gase. Or whether acting like a lunatic in Week 17 and getting ejected in the 4th quarter vs the Buffalo Bills.

Adam Gase lives by the adage; do as I say not as I do. If Gase wants to get hotheaded and fly off the handle that is ok, but if you are one of his players you better not act that way as you won’t last long on Gase’s team.

Adam Gase has only been a NFL head coach for 2 years and the jury is still out on him. Was year one a fluke and did Gase get lucky? Was year 2 the fluke with a bunch of bad breaks out of his control which led to a bad season. We don’t know yet. What we do know is in 2018 Adam Gase has no excuses and this roster is being molded in the shape, personality wise at least, of what his vision is.

In the past calendar year Gase has run off a bunch of assistant coaches, Jay Ajayi, Jarvis Landry, and who knows maybe by the time some of you are reading this Ndamukong Suh. When you pull “power moves” like that you best win games to back it up. If the 2018 season is a failure for the Miami Dolphins the next move to make isn’t with any player but with the head coach himself and the people who hired said head coach.

  1. This seems off base. You don't here people condemn other coaches for wanting their players to fall in line and follow the program. Read the other columns o why this was the right move. It seems toake more Sense.

  2. The only reason Landry caught all those passes the last 4 years is because we didn't have a quarterback who could throw it to our wide recievers, so Landry was the only option. It's time to draft a quarterback.

    1. You are 100% right , but you think this hard headed coach will get any quarterback in the draft.the answer is NO.
      Looks like he just do the opposite of what’s right to do . He still insist that Cutler was the right Quarterback to play after T hill went down. The best thing about he getting rid of our good players is ,he himself be closer to get fired.
      Ross you better get yourself involved and don’t let a kid destroy this dynasty .
      Ross in your real estate business do you ever hire an inexperienced contractor to build your high rises?
      Experience is everything .

  3. Welcome to the real world. You are either part of the solution or part of the problem. Show boating and talking back to your boss means it is only when you will be gone. I personally liked Ajayi & Landry passion, but only if it is focused on winning and not hurting the team. Their actions were immature and it cost them their jobs here. As I teach my son daily, there are consequences for your actions, and you need to learn that as quickly as possible.

  4. Don't get this view point at all. Why would a coach want players that don't listen or act as they want their players to act? Especially the so called leaders? You will lose the locker room very easily that way. I'd much rather see less talented players that work their butts off and march to the same beat than the "ME" players he just got rid of. Landry was all about getting paid as was Ajayi. I love how these guys say it's not about the money - if not they sign for half the price and let the team use that money elsewhere. And if you think nobody does that look at Brady in NE. He should be making $50M a year instead of $15M!!

  5. Too bad this loser owner and front office don't get rid of the third hothead -- Gase. Why did NO ONE say a word when Gase tanked the final Buffalo game w/ almost suspicious play calls that hinted of collusion to give Buffalo the win. Conspiracy theory? Yeah. But Incompetence Theory and a total disregard for the fans who paid to see at least an attempt at winning is the accurate take. I wipe better stuff off my sneaker after dog-walking than the likes of Ross, Tannenbaum and Gase. This trinity is lucky they have the most ignorant fan base in the NFl paying their way.

    1. I agree with you 100%
      What has he done the last 2 years that Ross had given him all of this authority to get rid of the best players Miami had drafted in the last 10 years?

    2. some of enjoyed seeing younger players get a chance ... if we would have done that earlier in the year the phins would have a younger better base of players now ... at the very least they would now what they have.
