Miami morning take: Targeting Carroll

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the web:

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel examines why opponents target Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll.

Morning take: With starter Dimitri Patterson out the past two games, teams have thrown Carroll's way at a high frequency. Brent Grimes is playing at a high level, and quarterbacks feel it’s less risky to test the other side.

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes about all the good things Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace has to say about his quarterback: Ryan Tannehill.

Morning take: Wallace played with two-time Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger, so he knows a good quarterback when he sees it. Tannehill has surprised even his teammates with his stellar play in the first three games. The key will be keeping it up for the entire season.

  • Brian Biggane of the Palm Beach Post notices the impact head coach Sean Payton has on the New Orleans Saints.

Morning take: New Orleans was a 7-9 team without Payton in 2012 and a 3-0 team with him this year. He is clearly one of the NFL's top coaches and has a Super Bowl win on his resume.

Morning take: Miami has allowed 14 sacks in three games, which is a concern no matter who the opponent is. The Saints had four sacks last week and will be looking for more on ESPN's "Monday Night Football."
