Manning, Cutler endorse Gase hire

AP

After hiring Adam Gase as their head coach earlier Saturday, the Dolphins shared some quotes from two quarterbacks with whom Gase has worked.

“Adam is ready for this, for sure,” Peyton Manning said.

Gase was Manning’s offensive coordinator with the Broncos in 2013-14. He spent 2015 as the Bears’ offensive coordinator.

“He has worked extremely hard his entire career and is very deserving of this opportunity,” Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said. “I wish he could stay with us in Chicago but everyone has a journey and this is the next part of his. His work with quarterbacks is well documented and I know firsthand how good he is. He will now continue to have success in this league as a head coach.”

While Gase was offensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014, the Broncos led the NFL in scoring, total offense and passing offense.

“He’s an extremely hard worker, a grinder,” Manning said. “He’s extremely bright on all things football, an excellent communicator and always eager to learn more. He asks a lot of questions and writes everything down. I’ve always been impressed with his work ethic and his eagerness to learn more.”

  1. “He asks a lot of questions and writes everything down. I’ve always been impressed with his work ethic and his eagerness to learn more.”

    Wait a minute, who was the coach here ?!?

  2. Interns ask a lot of questions and write things down. Do you think Shula or Lombardi did this? They didn’t need to. Should have hired a real coach or brought back Campbell. Philbin 2.0 is right.

  3. Yeah, that Manning quote at the end says it all. But no way Manning would be a coach after retirement, he’d get too fired up with his QB not doing it the way he would.

  4. That picture is a really good capture of Jay’s ‘tic;’ that odd movement he always does with his head.

    Jay’s grown a lot as a person; especially since he’s been married and had 3 kids. But still such a weird dude. Weird, weird dude.

  5. Blessings from Mr. One and Done. Guess that would make the Dolphins something they’ve gotten used to: None and Done.

  6. Stephen Ross refuses to admit that Ryan Tannehill isn’t that good and needs competition. Instead he keeps hiring coaches that will coddle him.

    Perhaps Miko Grimes is right after all.

    Peyton already sounding like a front office type

  8. Blessings from a player who has human growth hormone, a PED sent to his house? Not someone I would want a reference from, or endorsement .

  9. Well I had hoped Miami was going to hire a smuck, but this guy sounds pretty good, now I’m worried. I know many of us Patriots are worried, because my friends say everyone wanted this guy and somehow Miami got him, when we all thought they would end up with an old retread. But we still have the best coach and team, we are still superior to you, so we can still feel better about ourselves. Oh yea, and that Manning drug thing, everyone cheats, not just the Patriots, so there.

  10. Manning is the same guy who gave Caldwell an glowing endorsement…..who cares what the HGH king has to say…..

    didn’t the guy who started it say he made it up?

  12. Again, wow! First, Don’t really want to bash poor Mr. Gase, he REALLY didn’t know what he was getting into when he took on a head case like Mr “Twitchy” himself, Cutler. But, wow, sure didn’t take long to take the first coaching job offered, did it??? Run, run like the wind!!!! Good luck, in Miami, I really mean it, Mr. Gase. While I’m sure you were left twiddling your thumbs as Manning ran the show in Denver, I am POSITIVE Tannehill will be a breath of Fresh Air compared to you know WHO in Chicago!!!!

  13. Another layer of available excuses now ready for another so-so year for the Bears in 2016/17. Won’t be the worst and won’t again make the play-offs.
