    That's two really good games in a row.
    Good coverage and good tackling.
    Maybe we have something here!

    Carroll has really surprised me the last 2 weeks. He no longer scares me when he is in the game. You can see his confidence is totally different than the 1st 2 years in the league. I will say this about Coyle, this guy can really teach and Miami is fortunate to have him on the staff. Carroll, Smith Jones and Clemons look like different players than in earlier years.

    Seemd to me just about every completed pass they had was in Nolan Carrolls direction. Yeah you can have alot of tackles and tackle good when you let the guy catch the ball every time. he's getting to the ball just a bit to late.

    Nahhh, Misi couldn't get off of blocks all day. His worst showing so far - big reason the Rams put up 160+ yards on the ground.

    I don't know what you were watching?
    The only time I saw him get beat, he had good coverage and the receiver just made a good catch.
    Believe me after the first few weeks, I was one of his biggest critics, but
    got to give credit to him.
    He has really improved.

    He's playing where he should on the boundary. Marshall should be nickle or fs when he is healthy

    Really? I didnt notice that. I did notice he was in on the qb quite a bit. And thats always been the criticism on him, his pass rushing.

    only thing I didn't like was that him and Smith were playing off the WRs so much. Big reason for the Rams passing game going off. Outside of a great throw from Bradford to Kendricks, and the bomb to Givens, I think most of Bradford's passes were comebacks taking advantage of the soft zone.

    This. Those two plays made Bradford's job much easier.

    I concur. I saw Carroll getting beat several times today. Maybe we were not watching the same game as the original poster.

    I don't know what game you're watching but LIVE you can tell he was getting beat like a drum. They picked on him the most on the last drive. S. Smith didn't play too good either. I'm surprised we struggled so much against these receivers.

    they were playing off today and then they tightened up at LOS. Set um up a little.

    Misi did not set the edge well at all on long run on first set of downs.

    Our secondary is not weak, they just tend to give up yards, but they dont break often. Holding teams to 18pts on avg. thats with 30 points in first game. 13 last week. 14 this week. Trend is building.

    Everyone knows teams will throw on the CB opposite Smith. It happened again today. Our pass was average at best and that was with a solid pass rush.

    Exactly.
    I never said that Carrol was the reincarnation of Darrel Revis, but he is improving every week and not giving up the big play.
    Alot of times the safety has responsibilty on some of the balls over the middle that you may be blaming him for.
    I think at this point he is an upgrade over Marshall.

    Carroll was like a db version of Clyde Gates. He was a great athlete with exceptional speed who learned how to play the game at the NFL level and we saw what that looked like. But he grew and you could say that he's now arrived to he at least an average Starting CB. He was a 5th round pick who, with time, has far exceeded his draft position. It's easy to give Ireland mad props but I think he just got lucky with a late round pick.
