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.
