Bill Belichick heaps surprising praise on Adam Gase, Sam Darnold


#Jets fans may be counting the seconds until #Adam #Gase is no longer the head coach, but #Bill #Belichick doesn’t think there’s anyone better for the job in #Florham #Park.

#Ahead of #Sunday’s matchup with the #Jets, the longtime #Patriots coach fielded questions about the team he worked for just before coming to #New #England, as well as quarterback #Sam #Darnold. #Belichick made it known how highly he thought of #Darnold, who has seemingly regressed in his second and third NFL seasons, and that he doesn’t think the QB could be in better hands.

“I don’t think you could have anybody better coaching him than where he’s at,” he told reporters #Wednesday.

#Gase, who is 9-22 over two seasons with the #Jets heading into #Sunday’s game, admitted earlier this month that he believes #Darnold’s struggles have been on him and the coaching staff. #It’s widely believed that #Sunday’s regular-season finale will be #Gase’s final game with the #Jets.

#Through 11 games this season, #Darnold has recorded just eight touchdown passes with nine interceptions. #He missed four games this season due to a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder.

“I don’t think there’s any shortage of talent there or playmaking ability,” #Belichick said of #Darnold. “… #He’s an athletic guy that has great size, big arm, hard to tackle in the pocket, good prospect, and he’s being well coached.”
