Is Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase incompetent?
By Sean Moon
Is Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, keeping strange secrets and lying about the statuses of players?
Last week it was reported that the Miami Dolphins and Adam Gase were under investigation about how they reported hurt quarterback Ryan Tannehill before the Chicago Bears game. Now, after a crushing defeat Sunday at the hands of the Detroit Lions, it seems there might be some internal questions starting to surface.
Following the game, Miami Herald’s Adam H. Beasley and Barry Jackson, reported on a statement by DeVante Parker’s agent James Gould that provided accusations that head coach Adam Gase has been lying about the status and injuries of his client.
"“I am responding that he is not telling the truth and his decision was an example of poor management and cost the team the best opportunity to win,” Gould wrote. “He continues attacking the health of my client and this is not acceptable. Parker is not only healthy but wants to help this team win and the only real question that should be asked is how does Coach Gase justify his own incompetence. They averaged only 6.1 yards per pass catch (Sunday). They needed Parker who is completely healthy and was in full participation all week and in warm ups this morning. – DeVante Parker agent James Gould"
He continued with his displeasure of the team and Adam Gase.
"“Something smells in Miami”.“I’m sick to my stomach. I’m tired of watching coach Gase make these decisions, this was third game DeVante should have played and didn’t. Coach Gase should have made himself inactive. He has taken advantage of a great young man, a terrifically gifted football player with God-given talent and made him a scapegoat.”"
This report comes at a really bad time following an injury plagued defeat. Albert Wilson might be gone for the season with a hip injury, the team is still waiting on test results and his agent
"Drew Rosenhaus told WSVN-7 after the game that he is not optimistic about client’s injury, saying “unfortunately it looks like Albert Wilson’s brilliant season is on hold right now.”"
Kenny Stills went down twice, once with a shoulder and once where he limped off the field and never returned to the game. Tight end Mike Gesicki was on the sideline being checked out for a concussion following a head to head hit on the sideline.
So, if this claim is true, and DeVante Parker has been healthy and could have been playing, what happened? Is this yet another player that doesn’t see eye to eye with the head coach and couldn’t be shipped away, so he was just made inactive? Or, is this the agent trying to save face for his client that is about to be moved and probable not looking at a rich deal due to his never being on the field.
The Miami Dolphins are going to need someone on the field Thursday night to catch passes, so let’s hope DeVante Parker can be. Adam Gase has the say on the roster, but let’s hope everyone above him is in on all his bizarre roster moves and dealings.
