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."

I was expecting the conversation with Carroll would be more along the lines of raising his spirits or perhaps serving as crutch to waning confidence. Nope. That apparently wasn't the approach.

 "I think the confidence to us, to me, is gained through your preparation and doing things in practice and doing things consistently. Doing them well," Philbin said. "And then the transfer of practice to the game. We're expecting him to play well Sunday."

Philbin said Carroll has practiced well and obviously you see the team expects him to play well. If he doesn't for the second consecutive game ...

Well, job's on the line.

Kris,

Now you are just being a total moron. Anyone can see it, paragraph 5, for those who can count that high.

Harbaugh is smart to say it is not injury related. Otherwise he would be obligated to put Smith back in when he is healthy. Instead he uses the fact Smith has not been cleared yet to give Kaep another look, and the door is open to switch back.

------------------------------

Do you REALIZE how DUMB YOU SOUND....please re-read this....and then...TRY AGAIN....

KRIS IS A LIAR AND A MORON. PARAGRAPH 5 is what I posted. See for yourselves:

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick will take all the first-team reps for the San Francisco 49ers this week, quarterback Alex Smith told ESPN Wednesday night.

Smith told ESPN that coach Jim Harbaugh informed the two quarterbacks of the practice split on Wednesday.

Sports Illustrated reported Wednesday night that Harbaugh told Smith that Kaepernick would start Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Harbaugh's decision was not based on health, according to the report.

Harbaugh said earlier Wednesday the QB for the NFC West-leading Niners (7-2-1) could change week to week, and even during the course of a game.

Smith plans to fight for his job once he is fully healthy, but he had yet to be medically cleared Wednesday after missing Monday night's 32-7 rout of the Bears while recovering from a concussion.

Kris you have won the DUMB award for the rest of the year.

Kris = no longer worth responding to. A stubborn idiot and a bitter fool.

Actually....

I have been trying to CUT AND PASTE that ARTICLE...and it KEEPS GETTIG DELETED.....

Thanks for TAKING THE BAIT.....and PROVING WHAT WE ALREADY KNOW.......

YOU ARE EITHER ARMANDO....or @ a minimum...you work for the HERALD....

:)

sucker.....

MEL KOPPER....

ANOTHER HERALD EMPLOYEE...TROLL.....

posted by: WHAT ELSE IS NEW.....

What a nonsense response. Sure. I'm Armando with nothing better to do. Believe what you want.

You couldn't even man up an apologize for your false accusations.

You my friend are are what they refer to as a loser.

Not only is Kris a loser, but he has shown himself to be a pathetic one at that. Let him have fun on his high horse with his few stooges that frequently spout disgusting childish sex acts. The rest of us know better,

WHats up with you SENSITIVE TROLLS.....

ALWAYS ASKING for an APOLOGY......yet you INSULT EVERY REAL poster @ EVERY CHANCE....

F U ARMANDO....and you're TROLL NAMES.....

you will get NO APOLOGY HERE......

#EXPOSED.....again.....

Question: DEFINE TROLL....

Answer....LOOK IN THE MIRROR.....

Does anyone else here have any experience with ecommerce, websites, blogs, online advertising?

Those of you who do then know it would be a financial loss for the a newspaper to employ a troll for blog hits. Blog hits mean nothing until you are adding well into the hundreds of thousands daily, not on this frivolous, barely visited site. If a troll posted 10,000 times a day it would not be enough to exude financial gains.

So this whole nonsense about Herald employees here for blog hits is senseless. If they paid minimum wage it would be all wasted because it wouldn't be enough to gain another penny in ad fees.

Kris has been wrong 20 times today yet is still calling everyone else dumb and a troll. He rants on people for not reading what is written yet he does the same. You give him him evidence and he comes back lying about it saying it wasn't there or comes up with a lame story it was a trick. He is an ahole to so many people yet he regularly associates himself with the most disgusting bloggers here.

He is one very ignorant fellow in denial.

Let me TRANSLATE 12:03 post.....

"don't look @ me....i've been EXPOSED".....

I seem to have intimate KNOWLEDGE of the Herald...and its procedures.....even tho I am a ROLL SCREEN name that is bein used for the 1st tim..I am the NIGHT SHIFT TROLL....and I engaged the WRONG PERSON...oh...and I'm SENSITIVE....and need an APOLOGY...much like the ALOCO CHARACTER"......

that about sums it up.....

Well now that that is all out of the way...

To the rest of you, Happy Thanksgiving...enjoy.

I'll ALSO help the translate 12:10 post...but i'll keep it short.....

Disgusting in TROLL speak means REULAR/REAL people....who talk FOOTBALL.....

See ya NEXT SCREEN NAME....

Kris obviously never even had a friend with internet programming 101 experience. Anyone who has ever done the slightest bit on web programming knows this very basic knowledge. To Kris, its like I am part of the CIA. Ha, what an ignorant fool.

Mel,Kris I believe is non-other then OdinDouche/Douchi, Its the only explanation, Seeing how Armmando finally banned the hippie/druginfested/un-employable Odin, it was only time that Odin posted under a different name, Nothing here to see, Move along.

No....

Your like the TYPICAL TROLL to me.....

nothing more...and nothing less......
We have had NUMEROUS CONVERSATIONS....Mostly arguments...but I am sure I have agreed...or laughed @ some of you're more light-hearted stuff....

The difference between you and ME....

ME=ONE SCREEN NAMES....standing behind opinions....defending or changing them as information becomes available...or convincing arguments from OTHER REAL posters are made...

YOU= DOUCHE who is a HERALD BLOG HIT TROLL....

Poor Kris. Way out of his league intellectually tonight.

the fact that YOU continue to make up FAKE NAMES to agree with you....pathetic.....and PAINFULLY OBVIOUS......

Question?

So u do this for free? Oscar.

I mean mel.

If u don't work for the herald?

How do u Delete Pages?

Kris. That has been one of Dashi's Theory for a while.

Odin has it down to 2 people. Monkey Buoy and ...

Dashi Just wants to know?

Who is Snooki? Who is JWOWW?

U might have it down! To the right answer.

Home is U know who!

Next new screen name post will say.....

I'm not mel Kopper..but.....

or some variation....

...and you can take THAT...to the bank....

Pavlov

Maybe so OBL. I think today Kris has proven for good what a waste of time he is.

Dashi....

I think it's ARMANDO himself.....like HE said earlier....they can't AFFORD to hire someone and pay them minimum wage.....kind of telling on himself....

ARMANDO is the ONLY one who stands to gain from a TROLL INFESTATION.....

the math ADDS UP.....

Armando,

Would you please explain to your bloggers how silly their idea is about Herald employees paid to hit the blog? You have an amazingly nontechnical crowd here. To many of them the website/blog is all mysterious magic and they think anyone who has a clue about what is going on must be a Herald employee.

Here is a tip for you non-techies...with the cursor on this page, click the right mouse button, you will see an option to view source...that is the entire source code programming for the page. You can see it on every site online. The web is an open platform. Anyone with just a few months of experience can tell you just about everything about any site. I'm not even a programmer, I just know this from hanging around some techie folks.

I'm out......................

Kris. Correct.

It's his alter ego!

Or some low life! Relative or life partner. Which is most of the characters. Oscar and others. That he gave his password to.

Whoever it is! Knows NOTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL!! And Just Repeats whatever Mando tells him.

The reason the Old Man! Talks anything but FOOTBALL!!

U asked why does Dashi still talk to the troll sometime. PITY!!

I feel bad for him.

That Age All ALONE!! And The Jets Suck!!

Dashi.....

I believe it's ARMANDO.....during a LIVE BLOG....he seeks out the TROLLS (himself) to have conversation with......

Totally disrespects REAL POSTER Craig M....with his now INFAMOUS question..."Define Troll".....

anyone with EYES can see that this TRAIL leads DIRECTLY back to ARMANDO....

Agreed that only a painfully stupid and clueless person would entertain the laughable notion that Armando or the mysterious "Herald Employee" would actually invest their time accruing completely worthless blog hits in some insanely dim witted belief that it affects 'ad revenue.'

Kris, the simple fact of the matter is that you just aren't terribly bright and unfortunately there is no cure for that.

Kris,

I'll give u All the Credit. Today for exposing the Troll.

But why is it when Dashi Comes out to Play!! The Troll runs away?

Just saying.

12:44....

you forgot....

I'm not Mel Kopper...but.....funny how you both use the word clueless in a matter of moments of each other......purely coincidence I am sure....

signed,
Pavlov

Dashi...

That is a good question......the troll did beat feet when you showed up.....

I was prepared to show Armando for what he is.....

I wanted him to stick around.....I got nothing but time as I prepare for tomorrow....

Normally this time of night he is talking SH@T about me.....i guess its a BIT different when I'm still here.....

Marc is spot on. Nolan Carroll is, at best, a dime back or more likely just a ST player. There isn't anyone else to fill a position of such paramount important so after the Vontae Davis trade and Richard Marshall on IR, Carroll HAS to play and teams have and will continue to expose him.
The drafts of departed payroll bandit Bill Parcells are beginning to eerily resemble those of Spielman and Wannstench!
Amazing.

ED REED SUSPENSION OVER TURNED.....according to Jim Rome show.....

GOOD for him...and the NFLPA.....and the FANS...

he is still fined tho....

Kris I still believe it's a 2 man operation.

But if u want another sign. Look at the Time. Mando makes some post. Usually when the Troll is about done.

Funny thing is.

There is No Need!! For this!! It's a Dolphin Blog!! This thing runs Itself!! If the Troll would just stick to football!!

But it benefits him!! Everybody hating the fins!! Its Personal!!

Notice! Anything Positive on The Fins!! He Denigrates!! Always quick to point out the negative!!

Pitiful!!!

With that said Dashi Out.

Later Dashi....

I'm sure we will revisit this @ a later date in the NEAR future......

A Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

Well, job's on the line.....

The Dolphins will replace Carroll with one of their solid backup CB's? Carroll needs to stop using his hands to feel for the receiver. He can not do that passed five yards. The Refs will call that everytime and they did.

Nolan Carroll had a clear shot to knock Fitzpatrick out of the game. What happended? Fitzpatrick ended up blocking him for a 1st down.
Only con man Ireland would have a team with no corners and 5 Lousy tight ends that do nothing but take up roster spots.
Forcing Carroll to start shows what a lousy GM he is.

Kris really?, You have nothing better to do with your time to point out "TROLLS", You are worse then a troll, you post endless hours poinying out who's a troll???
LMAOROTF.
KRISSY Please)And I mean this) GET A LIFE.

@ 2:16.....

I MUST be on to something....the TROLL is FIXATED on this post.....

He played like an ahole and Philbin called him on it. Good for the Phins. Last year Sparano would have called Caroll the best CB in the league.
Still need another pass rusher that lines up on the qb's blind side.
Is it me or does the middle of the field seem open all the time? And why are the cb's playing so far off the receiver that 3rd down and 15 can be made with ease. The opponents receivers are running out 15 yards stopping and catching the ball. What is that? And our guys aren't even hitting the guy.

I can see Mando's little Be-atch is still running this pathetic, so-called blog, right in the ground.

But Ho Ho, they're ALWAYS the no. 1 Blog at the Herald. At least they are when it comes to the useless and retardedly idiotic Category of simply the most hits.

-------------------------------------------------------

Pro Football Focus always goes beyomd simple numbers and they have ranked this blog 2,288 th out of 2,288 football related blogs.

Thanks Again Monkey Bu-oy! I just couldn't end this without another fine example:

Only slaves to tradition and tasteless dullards eat turkey. It is a disgusting, flavorless abomination. I will not allow it in my home and loudly exclaim "NO!" to anyone with the nerve to dare serve me that repulsive bird. It is fit only for dogs and convicts!

I wonder how he knows what convicts eat?

Just kidding, I'm sure it's related to the sodomy and the under aged boy from down the street.

This idiot will be in line with Oscar later today at the Salvation Army, anxiously awaiting them good old Turkey Pot Pies. So quit lying-LMFAO! Sheesh, what a LOSER ;)
-------------------------------------------------------

Having "Reality Checked and Mated" Monkey Bu-oy, it's time for the Hunt!

PS: Monkey Bu-oy, I'm SURE Hunting is way to **MANLY** for you, but if you EVER want any lessons just hit me up. Don't worry about the weapons or the ammunition. Just come on out in the woods.

I'll take care of EVERYTHING...............(Poosy-LOL).

Why People call my name here? I was asleep.

Oscar, help Kris's mind, for the sake of the blog.

Posted by: Mel Kopper | November 21, 2012 at 11:21 PM

Funny how all of these unfamiliar sign in names, all the ones that "SUDDENLY" show up out of nowehere for the first time, ALWAYS, without FAIL, refer to either Oscar or ALoco.

Yep! He's still fooling everyone-lol.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot!!!!

How freaking ignorant is this fool for real? This BUFFOON is so STOOPID himself, that he actually thinks that we haven't figured him out from jump street-Bhwaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Seriously you guys, in this TOOL's Brain Damaged mind, he thinks he's smarter than EVERYBODY. I know you guys don't believe it, but it's true. This Rainbow Room Queenie has CONVINCED himself that no one can see right through his IDIOTIC and TIRED old routines-lol(He even did the gay stuff earlier and the pottying on the floor crap(OMG-LOL).

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

It's Thanks Giving today. If I get back from hunting and find out you "DROWNED" in the bathroom of the Rainbow Room or died from a Meth Overdose in Mommy's Basement........................

Thats when I'll TRULY be Thankful!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving Day to the Rest of You all..........

ValHalla!!!!

(I have to moderate myself)(I have to moderate myself). They are banning me at El Nuevo Herald thru something called Discus just because I call these Cubans that are arriving here now uneducated and low class scum.

Liver Spots is just like Obama. He's the Obama of the Blog.

It's like Obama telling Romney to find an honest line of work.

Fvcking FeeAggott Hipocrit, from this day forward, your "Blown Out A ss" will be known as "Obam Troll".

Now, I've already wasted too much time on Armando and his merry band of FvckTard FeeAggott Bu-oys!

It is time to Hit The Woods(Don't get excited FagTard, Hitting The Woods........**NOT**........"Hitting The Woodys").

ValHalla!!!!

wow!!! Armando have you ever been a boss in your life(and that includes in your own home)??????

I say that because you expect the coach to lift his spirits instead of reminding him of what he is paid to do, how he has been coached to play and how he has previously played. There is a time when the coach need to take the softly softly approach and there are times when you have to be firm and lay down what you expect of a person whether that be a football player or in any other career.

How do you know coach hasn't already used that approach on previous occasions???? you don't

If i was coach i would only feed the media what i want to feed you because you don't deserve anything more. the rest or what goes on stays within the locker room (good and bad) Thats how you act when you want to keep a locker room or any other team together!!

Do you People know anything about psychological Conditioning and Gambling and addiction? The best way to reinforce a behaviour(gambling) is to reward it with winning at variable intervals(for example,win twice now, then none for 10 times in a row, then win again, then none for 3 times in a row, then win 3 times in a row, and so on). I think that's what the Miami Dolphins have been doing to Us. We are hooked.(they will probably ban me from here also soon for speaking such)

See you guys, this is how stoopid FvckTard Really is.

NOBODY claims you're an actual Employye of the Herald. We all knew that when you started posting about how much you liked the little boys and checked out their packages at your kids "Slumber Party". Remember that post Idiot-LOL.

Anyway, the point is, we ALL KNOW The Herald doesn't employ Pedo's-Sheesh!

Nope, you're not a paid employee. I would bet you make a living off of welfare, selling your foodstamp card and Shop Lifting. But that's all besides the point.

What you do, is come here and **TRY**..........I said **TRY** to do Boyfriend a favor by running up the hits with your ignorant charades. You help him beat out the NUMBERS ONLY of all the blogs at the Herald. You help him out a little with your unemployed a ss and he helps you out a little with your Rainbow Room tabs and the dime packs you get for your so called "Secret Rondevous"........LOL.

A Herald Employee? YOU....?

Bhwaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaa!!!!

You'd have better luck trying to explain to Armando what a Troll is-ROTFLMFAO!

(PS: I've heard you post this pathetic crap below under at least 30 DIFFERENT sign in names. It wasn't true then, it ain't true now and MOST OF ALL.........WE ALL SEE RIGHT THROUGH you Panty Wastes-LOL!

A Herald Employee? Bhwaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaa!!!!

Nope Monkey Bu-oy, nobody sees right through your tired a ss garbage here. Your "SECRET IS SAFE"!

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh - LOL!

Well, odin, fukkk ENH or TMH. If I am going to be forced to pay $ to make commentaries, I'll do it at The Huffington Post where there are many influential People that might do something about the Dolphin's state.

NOBODY exposed to it can escape Operating Conditioning when this one has been done well.

FvckTard reels off this big, long winded excuse for how he just couldn't be Armando's Betach Troll. He tells us that Trolls are an impossibility.

Yet, the rest of us that aren't Brain Damaged by the Meth knows that virtually every blog that isn't moderated has...........Trolls.

FvckTard tells us it's impossible.

Armando asks us to "Define Them".
