DAVIE — Here is some of what Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen said Thursday:
• Kenyan Drake’s fumble was a huge play and a swing the team cannot have. They’re better off with two backs working. They want to get Senorise Perry in a bit.
• On the offensive line, it’s not ideal, but it’s just the way the league is. At least Jesse Davis has played all over the place. Now it’s an advantage that at least he’s played some tackle. On Ted Larsen, veteran guys can get the ball back.
• Jesse Davis is high probability to start at tackle a good chunk of the season. You’d like to have veteran backups, but the way the league is now, you just have to depend on guys who have a ton of reps under their belt. Davis is long and conscientious. He is a big, long guy who is suited to play tackle. I wish we had a couple JV games before Monday night. I wish we could slip him into a JV game tomorrow.
• Jay Cutler is getting more and more comfortable. Getting the arrow go up and up would be great. There weren’t drops. There weren’t interceptions.
• The pass catching backs are very helpful.
• Julius Thomas’ confidence is up a bit.
• Jarvis Landry is very tough like Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon. He likes contact. He likes to mix it up.
• The tackles have done well at times but been too loose at times.
• For the first time in history, Clyde Christensen doesn’t have an answer. The question: Why is Jarvis Landry’s yards per catch down to 7.7?
