DAVIE–Dolphins coach Adam Gase has had a busy week, beginning with the resignation of offensive line coach Chris Foerster, as he prepares to face the defending NFC champion Falcons on Sunday.
His No. 1 task this week, as it has been all season, is fixing Miami’s stumbling offense. Miami has scored three offensive touchdowns this year and ranks last in passing yardage and second-to-last in rushing.
Here are his thoughts from this afternoon:
— Gase regrets not playing wide receiver Leonte Carroo more against the Titans once DeVante Parker went down. He went mainly with Jakeem Grant and would’ve rather split time between them.
— The sets with three tight ends have been “hit and miss” when it comes to getting the run game going.
— Jay Ajayi hasn’t had many big plays as a runner, but Gase says his biggest priority is avoiding negative-yardage plays.
— Gase is fine with Jay Cutler throwing the ball away so frequently. He said every time he did it, it was the right call.
— The play clock continues to be an area the Dolphins need to improve. Gase wants to see all the actions between plays (huddles, calls, lining up) happen faster.
— Gase said there were five drops in the Titans game. He also said on one of Cutler’s throwaways came on a play that would’ve been a big gain, but there was no time for it to develop.
