Cornerback Nolan Carroll seemed a bit puzzled on Monday after a frustrating game in Buffalo in which he was whistled for four penalties.

Carroll was removed from the game in the third quarter but returned when Sean Smith left with cramps in the fourth. But he was back with the starters at Monday’s practice.

This and that

• The Dolphins have lost nine of their 13 fumbles offensively and have recovered just three of 16 balls fumbled by the opponent. That discrepancy prompted Philbin to schedule fumble drills during Monday’s practice.

...

Receiver Jabar Gaffney, who missed Thursday’s game with a knee injury, practiced Monday and is optimistic about playing Sunday against Seattle. Rishard Matthews, who caught one pass for 19 yards and drew a pass interference penalty covering 30 yards, played well in Gaffney’s absence, and Philbin indicated playing time among the backup receivers would be based partly on practice performance. Matthews “played fast,” Philbin said.

The costly penalties need to stop. Nolan Carroll kept two Bills drives alive on just about his penalties alone. The Dolphins are the 5th most penalized team in the NFL right now. Whether it's costly defensive pass interference calls like Carroll's or drive killers like Incognito's the other week, the penalties need to stop. Our coaches need to pull the reigns and get this team to play with more discipline because we can't keep shooting ourselves in the foot and expecting to win games.

Stop grabbing WRs and turn your head around when the ball is in the air.

Mak, it is amazing to me that it seems about every time the ball is in the air that the Miami corners never seem to have the awareness to turn around for the ball. Hard to believe that if our Defensive Coordinator specializes in the secondary, why that has not been corrected.....at all.
