    A great head coach needs to know who his leaders are and has to get them to buy into the team philosophy. You don't bench your leaders if you believe in them, so Philbins benching of Bush tells you what he thinks of Reggie. If not Reggie as a leader, then who?

    I do not like what he did, just cut off our own nose to spite our face. This whole team should be benched.

    I don't agree. What happened if Thomas had fumbled also? Then only play miller?

    I was fine with sending him a message, maybe bench him for a drive. Down big and your offense has only one home run threat... Play that man. He may only get that one big play but its more than the 0 every else will give you. The fumble began the crappy game but was far from the sole reason it was a blow out. Should have benched every other player except hartline.

    I wasn't a big fan of it... It's not like Bush pulled a Legadu. The ball was stripped as he was coming down. He should have stayed in the game.

    Exactly. You bench one of your most talented players on offense for a mistake?

    Its a tough mistake to swallow, especially since it led to a TD. But you need to move on and get back into the game. Instead you bench him. When RT throws a few picks thats cool with you though...we don't see him benched, we don't see Moore come out.

    Guess one guys mistakes aren't the same as another on this team.

    No he didn't, you just remember his fumbles more than Bush because you have a higher perception of Bush and you are critical of Thomas because he's unproven.

    Great move by Philbin. Coughed up a ball he had no business fumbling and cost his team 7 points. Take a seat and think about it Reggie. Say what you want but Philbins got balls and I like the cut of his jib.

    Although I get this move at the hs/college level I don't see how this motivates a pro to play harder. Reggie probably could have been told to make it up and responded better than the silent treatment.
