Highlights of coach Adam Gase’s huddle with the media Monday:
- Thought defense and special teams did what they’ve been doing. Defense kept team in the game. Offensively, “we have to do what we’re coached to do.” Have to pay attention to details. “We’re not doing things right. It’s everybody. Guys just have to do what their job is and a lot of things will clean up.”
- Cordrea Tankersley’s NFL debut: “It was good. It was what we were hoping for.”
- Tankersley is now the starter at cornerback.
- Lawrence Timmons did “exactly what we were all hoping for.”
- Says confidence level on offense “better be high. If we do what we’re supposed to be, we’ll be fine. If keep throwing crap out there, it’s going to be what it’s been the last two weeks.”
- “If you’re panicking, you’re in the wrong profession.”
- On Jay Cutler: “I know where the ball’s supposed to go. … If we give him another second” things will be OK. Puts heat on the line, obviously. “We can’t let him take hit after hit after hit.”
- Says he was disappointed the Wildcat play was busted. “Too many guys screwed up.”
- Says “It drives me nuts” for people to blame the QBs all the time. Criticizes “evaluation skills” by people when it comes to QBs. Says he just listens to himself.
