Head coach Adam Gase has not lost his cool, says the New York Post. It’d be hard to lose something you have never had, wouldn’t it? “His attitude hasn’t changed,’’ guard Brian Winters said. “It’s like nothing has happened to him, which is what you need in a head coach. He comes to work every day happy and ready to roll. He’s the first guy you lean on, so when you see a guy like him chipper and ready to roll, you feel like, ‘Hey, we’re good to go.’ ’’ Crapping all over the Miami Dolphins and still getting employed by another team fills a guy with confidence.
