Adam Gase: Jay Cutler looks the same

AP

The Dolphins held their first practice with quarterback Jay Cutler on Tuesday and head coach Adam Gase said there wasn’t much sign that Cutler was just getting started with the team.

Gase said at his Tuesday press conference that Cutler looks the same as he did the last time he saw him on the field and that things went “nice and smooth” when Cutler stepped in with the first team because the quarterback “remembered basically everything” about the offense after working with Gase in the past.

Cutler joked on Monday that he doesn’t need to be in good shape because he plays quarterback, but Gase showed no concern about the quarterback’s condition. He said Cutler’s arm was strong and that the quarterback “felt good” during and after his return to the field.

“He’s not going to sugarcoat anything with me,” Gase said.

Matt Moore took some of the reps with the first team during Tuesday’s practice and will run the offense at the start of Thursday’s game, but it certainly doesn’t sound like it will be long before Cutler’s the only quarterback working with the starters in Miami.

  1. I trust Gase, but I have to feel bad for Moore. Everytime he is given a chance the rug gets pulled out from under him. The consensus must be that he is only a really good back up. Gase knows his Qbs.

  2. Yeah,

    Dude had 2 long TD’s on his first day of practice after being retired for 8 months.

    I think this may work out well for Miami

  3. You cannot do an article about Jay Cutler without including the Under/Over for Games Actually Played during the 2017 Season.

  4. Honestly, I didn’t want Cutler. But I trust Gase and what he’s building in Miami, so if he hand picked him, I trust his decision. Cutler has way-better weapons than he did in Chicago with Gase so he should thrive. Gase is the man and my coach and I trust his decision. Although I may not like it, but I trust Gase. Honestly, I don’t trust Moore for 16 games. Love him as our back up and to spot start here-and-there, but for 16 games??… Let’s hope Cutler get’s us wins, especially week 2 in L.A., the game I’m going to… #phinsup

  5. You gotta love smokin’ Jay Cutler.

    He rolls off the couch and joins a playoff team for $10M plus incentives for one season’s work. The guy lands one big contract after another, is a young fit millionaire NFL quarterback with a beautiful wife and kids.

    You can’t blame a guy for wanting a job and waiting and then taking advantage of a great opportunity. Yeh, he is not a *great* quarterback, but he has played his cards well and maximized his opportunities.

  6. I hope there’s not a “sore arm” in the near future … he needs to be brought along very slowly as he’s not thrown in 8 months or more.

  7. Playoff Wins:

    Mark Sanchez 6
    Jay Cutler 1
    Matt Stafford 0

    Umm…what’s your point again?

  8. Miami seems like an up and coming team. Might be best to run with Cutler this season and try to draft a legit franchise QB next year. Really don’t think Tannehill is that guy.

  9. Dude Matt Moore should be jacked. Another NFL paycheck season and not have to take any hits because he doesn’t have to play anymore. Forget playing– free money baby. To the bank.

  10. The Matt Stafford and Jay Cutler comparisons have got to stop. Who’s better? 1 playoff win vs none. Big deal. Both have super strong arms. When I looked up lists of the strongest arms in the NFL, Cutler would always come in #1, Stafford #2.

    Stafford’s third season saw him throw 41 TD’s, over 5,000 yards, 17 int’s, but he got snubbed for the probowl. The Lions teams have always been mediocre, so it’s no wonder he’s never won a playoff game.

  11. For those who said he had a pouty face, he did not so get that out of your system
    He actually did a good job with the whole interview. Everyone needs to get over it,
    he is the Dolphins QB and there was no other choice. Kapernick would not have worked
    in Miami with the Cuban Americans. Wearing a Castro shirt is a NO NO.

  12. Truly hope the guy can find success in Miami — he’s been through the ringer — some of which is on his shoulders — but he’s got a fresh start — and would be great to see how in the playoffs.

  13. Was talking to my buddy today. He’s a Fins fan and has accepted that they might not make the postseason. Honestly, I’d wait and see. Cutler may surprise some. Or he may be absolutely garbage. If he’s great, it proves Tannehill sucks. If he’s awful it proves what most of us have believed for a long time.

  14. after all these years of being the fokin kardashians of the NFL,
    thank you Mr Ross & Adam Gase feels damn good.
    i love how such a young coach like Gase isnt afraid to think outside the box
    and putting together such a innovative programm.

    The Tannehill injury is a tough one to swallow and basically destroys the hope of gettin back into the playoffs but love where this team is moving.
    Until week 4 last year this teams offense didnt have a clue how to line up and what route to run and now all you hear and see is young players developing.

  15. Before you hate, just make sure you refer to him as ‘2015 PRO BOWL MVP’ Matthew Stafford says:

    But I suppose ‘right mind’ may be the issue here. You only ever post to say Cutler is better than Stafford, like you’re some kind of scorned lover. Happy trolling I guess

    Dolphins should try to sign Megatron, just think about that core receiving group with a real QB in the 305 now!

    NFL’s worst track record for wasting talent

    Bitter Lion’s fan can’t let Calvin go and understand that the Lions are the worst team in the history of the NFC.

  16. I am not a Jay Cutler fan or even a Miami fan for that matter but it would be pretty cool story to see Jay have a career resurgence and make a playoff run or two. The guy has so much natural talent that hasnt been realized in his starting record. I will definitely be following the Fins this year to see how it plays out, hoping he does well.

    I can’t stand the guy but he’s better than what the Bills and Jets have by a mile.

    I love the Dolphins but you keep posting this and it doesn’t really fill me with much glee.

  22. The pressure will be on Cutler to play well right out the gate. If he has a 4 turnover week 1 and Miami loses. There will be an immediate push for Matt Moore to play. He probably has teammates and coaches inside the building who feel that Moore deserves to be starting.

  23. The thing that people need to remember with Jay is that he literally played for the worst Offensive Coordinators in the sport — with the exception of Gase.

    Ron Turner washed out in college and was running an old timey offense when he returned to the Bears.

    Mike Martz was a fraud and by the time the Bears hired him (probably the last team willing to do so) he had been completely exposed. And yet the Bears still traded Greg Olson for peanuts because Martz’s offense didn’t use the tight end and he was unable to adjust his offense to work with an extremely talented tight end.

    Mike Tice actually was offensive coordinator for a year or two. He was a line coach, never coordinated before.

    So pretty much, Gase was the only legitimate coordinator Jay played with in Chicago, and he played pretty well–well enough to kill the Bears draft position.

    Anyway, rather than rip on Jay, football fans should be mildly excited about getting a chance to see what he can do with a competent coaching staff.

  24. Funny how all the Dolphin fans are here hitting “thumbs down” on all of the negative Jay Cutler comments. After around week 3 they’ll be the ones making the negative Jay Cutler comments.

  25. Dear spartylegendhyzersmadcuzlionssobad,

    I get that you hate the Lions. It’s in your username. Now, follow the instructions in MY username, and before hating Stafford further, realize the comparison was Cutler to Stafford. Not the history of the Bears TEAM to the history of the Lions TEAM. Or just continue trolling since you have nothing to say regarding Cutler being the better QB

  26. I would suggest that Miami fans remove all sharp objects from their homes before the season starts.

    This is not going to be a pretty season.

    Dear delusional fellow Lions fan,

    He’s right Cutler does have one playoff win and Stafford has zero. The are the same caliber QB in today’s standards. You’re just as annoying as he is so stop with the high horse garbage. Cutler made the probowl too, that doesn’t mean people can’t hate on him because of you’re opinion, you ding bat!

  28. detroitsportsfan11 – if we’re going to call each other names, you Turncoat, you brushed over three very little, very important letters missing after Cutler’s Pro-Bowl appearance. If you listen closely, you can almost hear the chants from back in 2015. Listen… ‘mvp, mvp, MVP, MVP, MVP!!! MVP!!!’ That’s right. That’s right, Stafford was the Pro Bowl MVP. Cutler….was not. In fact, Cutler has been so bad lately. I know there was a day when he was good. But not Stafford-good. See MVP? That is MOST VALUABLE PLAYER. Playoff win? That is a TEAM accomplishment. My gosh you two, this is common sense, this isn’t Quantum Physics. Try to keep up

  29. @Before you hate, just make sure you refer to him as ‘2015 PRO BOWL MVP’ Matthew Stafford

    It’s pretty clear that the troll has riled you up to the point of insanity. Stop embarrassing yourself, Stafford isn’t that great and pass whatever you’re smoking.

  30. Does he mean that he just mopes around looking like Elvis after a week long bender? Than I guess he does look the same

  31. Does this mean he will have the same ‘sit-on-the-end-of-the-bench-alone-and-pout’ routine when the weather gets cold?
