    Philbin message to Carroll: Job's on the line

    Dolphins coach Joe Philbin had a little chat with cornerback Nolan Carroll today.

    Carroll, you will recall, had a tough night against Buffalo his last game. He had two pass interference penalties, a holding call and an illegal contact called against him. It was four first downs and 76 yards worth of penalties.
    So the Dolphins coaches perhaps felt the need to remind the cornerback that a starting job is notgifted or inherited. It is earned. And Carroll has to earn better than he did last week or he's going to find himself replaced.
    "I talked to Nolan today a little bit individually," Philbin said. "I know the coaches communicate with him on a consistent basis. I think Nolan is an aware player. These guys that have been in the league, they're professionals. They know their job's on the line. Told him today. We all get evaluated by our performance on Sunday. That's the most important thing for what we do -- what I do as a coach and what they do as players. He's aware of what he needs to do and things he needs to do better."
    "It happens all the time," Taylor said. "It's not an exact science and personnel guys aren't the end-all, be-all. " Jason Taylor,2011

    And we would replace him with who? After 5 years of drafting and off season aquisitions the only unit with any depth is DT...hard not to fault Ireland for that.

    I'm not sure Nolan Carroll understands what that means.

    It's tough to save your job when you don't even understand what your job is.

    It's amazing to me that Nolan Carroll keeps finding the football field.

    The only option I see would be Wilson, who was moved to S, and back to CB.

    hope he has had this same conversation with SEAN SMITH as he is equally as bad, actually, worse because he was a hi round pic and making a boat load of money.

    this secondary will never be ANYTHING untill those two are gone.

    I have said for awhile that I like R.J. Stanford. He got a little love in Joe's presser this week. Let's see if he gets additional chances. Can't hurt.

    Carroll didn't do anything different that any other corner in the league does on a week to week basis! He was hand checking same thing every wide-out in the league does. I never thought much of Carroll, but he is playing with a lot of intensity this year, and is much improved.
