What Adam Gase just said, Monday after Dolphins beat Titans


At the end of a news conference following the longest game in NFL history, Adam Gase was honest. He said he just wanted to go home.

But such is life, we were able to reconnect with Gase on Monday morning at Dolphins camp in Davie. Here are some things Gase said:

• I slept well last night.

• We try to find out the solution and execute the best way we can. I am hoping we don’t go through a lot of these situations again.

• Darren Rizzi helps when there are situations like what happened. 

• Ryan Tannehill’s deep ball was nice. Right where we talked about it. 47 yards, right down the hash. It was covered pretty well.

• The ball may have slipped out of Ryan Tannehill’s hand on the interception intended for Mike Gesicki.

• There was some miscommunication on the interception intended for Jakeem Grant.

• The Albert Wilson end around with an option to Kenyan Drake was an old Mike Martz Rams play. 

• There was a lot of good on defense. They want to be more efficient and consistent in stopping the run game. We had some missed tackles we can’t afford. We have to be able to tackle 1-on-1 in space, in the hole. We need more tackling like Reshad Jones.

• Bobby McCain made some really nice plays. They targeted him six times without completions as far as I’m concerned.

• We’ll look at the backup quarterback competition each week. 

• Durham Smythe is the backup snapper. John Denney (shoulder) is still being evaluated.

The Dolphins intend to fill their vacant roster spot by promoting practice squad safety Maurice Smith, a league source confirmed.

He was on the roster all of the 2017 season and appeared in five games and likely would have played more if not...

There couldn’t be anything worse for the Dolphins’ offensive line than to lose bear-sized left guard Josh Sitton, their crucial free agent acquisition, one week into the season. That one hurts. But Adam Gase is making this the year of no complaining. He’s tried to purge what he saw as a defeatist attitude from Miami’s locker...

Willie Taggart didn’t create this mess. Jimbo Fisher did.

Two years of little accountability on or off the field. Two years of allowing academics to become an afterthought...
