    Rodney Harrison calls Philbin an idiot for benching Bush

    Didn't see this posted, if so you may merge.

    here is the link to the audio interview:

    But it's worth a listen, Harrison has some valid points defending Bush, thoughts?

    Hard to argue with what he is saying. You have to show some consistency and I'm not seeing that from Coach. It all starts at the line, and our line is getting blown up from all sides of the ball. I'm also not blind or stupid, Reggie has been struggling, possibly due to nagging injury. Winning cures everything, we need to start winning.

    Well ain't that the finest example of the teapot calling the kettle black!
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    Rodney Harrison can kiss it. He got benched cuz he fumbled 2 weeks in a row and that will not be tolerated from a RB. Reggie himself agreed to the benching and I for one think it is well deserved. If you cant hold onto the football you should not be trusted with the football. Its that simple.

    Unless your name is Daniel Thomas apparently.

    so losing your temper adn getting a 15 yard penalty and KILLING your potential TD drive isnt worth a benching?

    So Thomas fumbling and single handedly costing us games isn't worth benching?

    So NaNaee causing 3 TO isn't worth benching until he costs us our 3rd loss then gets cut?

    I don't think Philbin was right to bench Bush. Maybe for a series but not the whole rest of the half +..

    I've defended Philbin when it comes to the dudes on here that say that he should have benched Tanne as well for throwing the picks. Two totally different cases.. But ya, Reggie shouldn't have been benched. He's a leader on this team and no one questions his worth ethic.

    I'd agree. This happened before with the Rams this year (I think it was week 1). Fisher benched S. Jackson in the first quarter when he committed a really dumb penalty around the goal line and they went to the rookie RB for the rest of the game. All I heard were crickets regarding that situation.

    If Philbin wanted to make a point, instead of not giving him the ball at all, why not change the capacity in which he is used? We've all clamored for screens, inside slants, curls, "in the flats" type of use out of Reggie. It'd make sense to take him out of the running role and put him into a pseudo-receiving role.

    I wonder if Shula sit around trying to figure out what would make all the players happiest?? NO he didn't, he did what was right and let the players deal with it the best they could. Leaders do what is right and let everyone else think what they want. Philbin isn't Shula but he shouldn't be wasting his time worrying about what the players think of his decisions either. He made the decision and thats that. Whether it was the right decision we will never know because we weren't there and don't know what was said, but I for one think it was long overdue. Reggie has been hurting the team more than helping the last 3 games.

    The one thing we DO know is that Reggie himself agreed with the benching. Go to miamidolphins.com and watch his interview.

    Rodney Harrison calls Philbin an idiot for benching Bush

    What he said something bad about Joe Philbin? Well he must be an idiot because Philbin and Tannehill can not be criticized.
    The way Jeff Ireland took a GM's dream worth of cap space and draft picks and made the team worse in borderline miraculous.
