Dale-Paul Jordan at Finside is misguided

He was very critical of Nolan Carroll.  WHY?  Why pick him out?   Because you played some highschool corner.  I played TE and MLB in high school.  So what?

I did not see anything about OV or Wheeler who actually HAD bad games.  He went after the 18th best Corner in the NFL after three weeks.  Grimes is 8th best.  AND, after facing two very good QBs with multiple weapons.

Further, when I tried to express my displeasure in his article using facts instead of BS observations, he and the finside cowards would not print my comments.  What a chicken s--t thing to do...

I welcome all criticisms and all points of view!  Bring it!

Since you played MLB and I really don't know who you are nor what you look like, I think I'll pass. I like my ribs the way they are.

Well...Some people as part of who they are need to attack someone and Nolan is in an area he feels 'expertish' in:)...I have been a fan for 43 years (the thought makes me feel old) there are some things i have learned over that time, here are a few... 1. All players are pros, and fans being verbal is part of being in the spot light. It would really be bad for miami if there was no interest. 2. Before computers stupid fans stood out as different from the rest, now with computers they are everywhere. 3. Before computers you had no way of knowing the stats on every players snap. So back then coaches and GM's had time to develop players, today we have fans that after 3 games are ready to write off our drafted players. 4. OJ Simpson, Terry Bradshaw, and Dan Fouts all started out slow. If they played today the current fans would have "borked" them and the GM who drafted them. 5. The bottom line? In this day in age where fans have changed so much, do not put so much faith into what they think....just-sayin

I think it was a good article. Everyone has a point of view. Omar has already come out and said Running Back is obvious area of need coming into the 2014 draft. ( He also said there is not much of a difference between Willis Mcgahee and Trent Richardson so take his running back evaluation with a grain of salt. I think my favorite comment so far was this league is not a passing league, it is a team league. The Dolphins have a very good team right now. Is Nolan Caroll a shut down corner you can put 1 on 1 with Julio Jones and shut him down? No of course not ( Is anyone really able to shut down Julio Jones 1 on 1 a whole game?) However, Nolan seems to be in the proper position and not a big cause of blown coverages. He is not elite, he is a reliable veteran corner than can execute a defensive game plan. We are going into Monday night missing a pro bowl Veteran tackle and pro ball def-end. To most teams that would be devastating. However we are still very dangerous with Dion Jordon, Randy Starks, and company. So let people knit pick away at specific plays and players they see on film. The Dolphins are very a good team. I think the fact that the colts destroyed the 49ners and we beat the colts at homes speaks for itself. I could care less what pro football focus thinks of our players. What I care about is when the game was on the line Dion Jordon rushed a pass and Jimmy Wilson picked it off. TEAM sport

The player that had the worst game last week was Wheeler!!!

Nolan Carroll played outstanding. That is not opinion. That is fact! If a Corner plays against Luck and Ryan (with all of those weapons), and is still ranked in the top 20 of CBs, that is outstanding. Our secondary has been outstanding (except for Jimmy Wilson and few blown coverages). To pick on Nolan Carroll is getting old. The man has stepped-up big - he deserves accolades not criticism.

Any other "OPINION" is just plain stupid!
