He is endorsed by Peyton Manning. Manning has nothing to gain endorsing him nor does he go around endorsing everyone. He made the playoffs his first year in Miami and admittedly some mistakes after that. While not identical his record in Miami was similar to Belichick in Cleveland. His first year with the Jets he made some mistakes and the wheels came off. He kept everything together and took a team with 5 win talent to a 7-9 record, finishing 6-2 after starting 1-7. Darnold loves him and that says a lot. The NFL is an offensive league. Look at the coaching landscape and tell me what realistic option would be better than Coach Gase?
