To be the wife of a football coach is not for everyone.
View the fourth season of "Last Chance U" this summer and the difficulties Jessica Martin faces, having followed her husband on the JUCO level, three children.
In a way, it gets easier. In other cases, it can be harder.
Jennifer Gases, the wife of New York Jets coach Adam Gases in the first year, can understand this with certainty. An incredibly thorough profile of The Athletic coach Dan Pompei shows just how much it can mean to be the wife of an NFL head coach.
Gases Leaves the Birth of His Son for Peyton Manning
Gases was a coach known since 2003 in the NFL and after stations at the Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears as an offensive head. From 2009 to 2014, he spent six years in Denver, primarily as a quarterback coach and then as an offensive coordinator.
For three years, he overlapped himself with future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning. And here happens the biggest "um, what" story.
Via Pompei at The Athletic:
The file for October 1, 2013 is particularly interesting. Every Tuesday, when he was in Denver, Gases met Manning at 2:00 pm. Except this Tuesday, when Jennifer gave birth to Wyatt by caesarean section.
Gases prompted his wife to schedule the operation at 10 o'clock in the morning. "So they pulled the baby out of me and said," It's a boy, "Jennifer says," They did not even put my organs back and sew me up before saying, "Are you alright?" I said, "Yes "I'm fine." He said, "All right, I'm out." They said, "You want to cut the umbilical cord?" He said, "No, I'm fine."
At two o'clock, Manning stopped stunned that gas was waiting for him in the meeting room.
Manning: You have to kid me. Did not your wife have a baby two hours ago? "
Gases:" Yes, but did you really think I would let you win?
Background: The Broncos played the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5 this coming Sunday. The offense was a cruising average of 44.75 points per game with Gases as the offensive coordinator and the Cowboys defense was not outstanding.
A Tuesday afternoon meeting with one of the game's biggest quarterbacks can take at least a few hours. It seems clear that he would understand, especially if he has children of his own.
Even if it were a big game, none of that really matters, because your wife has done everything work and gave birth to her child. That's not an easy task.
Such large family moments must not stand in the way of a job.
Gases asks woman to order a lunch.
The birth moment is not the only story that raises eyebrows profile. Via The Athletic:
Gases are unlikely to prepare a meal by themselves. When Jennifer recently left him alone to spend a day with the dog, he sent her a text message asking her to order him a lunch at Uber Eats.
It is unclear whether the dog is the gas or not, but whether he observes the dog, not a dog sitter. And that he can not order food for himself, instead of asking his wife, who may not be able to enjoy their day off from the children, is at best questionable.
If you manage to get along in a stingy defense, you can order a sandwich for lunch.

Gases profiled as caring for players
For those who read the excerpt The Athletic shared on Twitter It is difficult to read the full profile and get into the section on Gases benevolence and how he reportedly supports everyone else there.
He phoned the assistant's wife for three hours late at night, while the assistant in the apartment was surgery after a bicycle accident. And when Ryan Tannehill crashed on the first day of the Dolphins training camp in 2017, he hurried to the hospital after training to be with the quarterback's wife.
Several sources reported how exceptional the gases were in building relationships and relationships with players and their teammates. The juxtaposition of his son's natal story and the stories of connecting to players is blatant.
Twitter mentioned this in the responses to this Athletic post and was not satisfied with Gas's priorities . It's a welcome break from days when players who took paternity leave were ripped off.
Every relationship is different, and it's easy to look in and criticize at times without knowing everything. Via The Athletic:
Jennifer is an ideal fit for him – the daughter of a football coach whose normal perception can easily go awry. "I love that he loves what he does," she says. "He trains and I take care of everything else."
He says he is like her fourth child. But no child is so organized.
Again, the wife of a football coach is not for everyone.
