That's what we need, to have a former player decide who to bench and why.
Bush is a team leader and it is possible for Joe to lose his team if his actions are taken the wrong way by the team. Joe needs to be careful.
I totally agree with Rodney! Finally someone else with a brain on their shoulders agrees with me. All Philben did by benching Bush was create more tension and controversy in the locker room. Bush is our best player and you bench him for Donald Thomas and Lamar? Give me a break. The only guy that should of been benched is Tannehill!
Two weeks ago people were saying Philbin was a candidate for coach of the year and the Dolphins were on the right track with the front office in place and Tannehill was a franchise quarterback. Now people are calling Philbin an idiot and speculating he is going to lose the locker room, every player sucks, certain coaches and the GM should be fired and Tannehill is no longer a franchise quarterback. If the Dolphins win the next two, the Dolphins will be considered the King of Kings again according to these same people.
Perennially voted The Dirtiest Player In The League, (which no doubt earns Incog's admiration), Harrison lacks the credibility to declare what's proper, improper or downright right or wrong!
Wisdom from a "QB Whisperer::
"No we have our FRANCHISE QB and I want to keep him rather than get 2 guys who may or may not be productive NFL players.
Palmer's situation is different and if I had my choice between Palmer and buttfumble, I'd take buttfumble"
Everyone has to be accountable for their actions including idiot Joe Philben. Benching Reggie was a dumb move - period! Okay take the guy out for a play or two to prove a point but to bench him the whole game. Come on! This isn't college football! You can't go benching your star players that can help you win.
