Adam Gase defends Jets' play-calling, lack of WR targets in loss to Chargers

Adam Gase defended the first-half play-calling in Sunday’s loss to the Chargers, saying plenty of them were designed for receivers, and particularly Jamison Crowder.

"Crowder probably should have had about 15 catches in those plays," Gase said.

Joe Flacco only completed three passes in the first half of the Jets’ 34-28 loss, and none were to wide receivers. Flacco took the blame for "some bad throws" and said there were "miscommunications."

Flacco made a bad throw in the first quarter that turned into a pick-6 for the Chargers. The pass was intended for Crowder.

Gase relinquished the play-calling duties to offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains three games ago.
