Here is some of what Adam Gase said the Friday before Sunday’s Falcons game:

• DeVante Parker is officially doubtful. Gase won’t rule him completely out.

• Jay Cutler needs to lower his target when he throws at Jakeem Grant. They will also stay away from some plays and routes because Grant is eight inches shorter than Parker. It was tough for Grant to step in when he was basically doing walk-throughs won the side with Leonte Carroo.

• The Dolphins defensive backs need to stay tight. They need to pressure the quarterback.

• Cordrea Tankersley thought we were nuts for not having him in there faster. A lot of guys wouldn’t be like that. But he’s confident.

• The team is trying to decide what should be taken out of the offense. The team hasn’t been playing well on third down. So they’re trying to focus on what they think they can do well on third down.

• Nate Allen has been solid aside from a few missed tackles. He’s trying to keep things in front of him.

• Vic Beasley is going to keep coming, after the initial rush.

• Must be great in leverage and sound in coverage against Julio Jones. He’ll move around so more than one guy will have to cover him.

• He’s seen Jakeem Grant jump higher than he did on the pass breakup in the end zone against Tennessee. If he had timed it differently it would caught it.
