Also, I don't understand the Bush bashing. He ran hard all day and has run hard all season. The guy works his tail off and sets a great example for the rest of the team to follow. I think that it is going to hurt our team if he leaves and yet some of you are more than eager to push him out the door.
    To answer your question about Bush. I think people are tired of his dancing around all the time looking for the sensational play. That really worked when he was in college but in the NFL that doesn't work very often. Sure that dancing around has gotten him a big play every now and then but for the most part he's losing yards and putting the offence and 2nd and long and 3rd and long very often. He leaves yards out there everytime he does that. I'm not talking about big yards but sometimes it's ok to gain 2 or 3 yards rather than lose 2 or 3 yards. Everyone knows he works hard, but his style puts our offence in a hole several times a game. Barry Sanders used to do that too but he'd hit that big play way more often than Bush does.

    Ozzy rules!!

    Unbelievable. One time since he's been here Bush doesn't fight for an extra yard and somebody calls him out for it. Its OK to give players the benefit of the doubt once in a while and maybe they're seeing something that your not.

    I thought hartline had a good game all around but he also dropped that deep ball right in his stomach! That was another big play left on the field.

    Also, how can some of you place the blame for the roughing the kicker on the coaching staff? Seriously? The player has to be smart and know where he is. The block call had nothing to do with Wilson making a bonehead play! He needs to be smarter.....coaches are NOT to blame for a stupid play by a player! SMH at some of you!! You just want to blame the staff for everything.

    Yes, blaming Wilson's running into the kicker on Philbin is asinine. Wilson has no excuse for doing it but I'm sure when a guy who doesn't get much opportunity to make a game changing play sees a punter 5 feet in front of him with the ball not even off his foot he wants to make something happen. Still Wilson's a bonehead and I put all the blame on him for not trying to take a better angle.

    I dont complain about refs normally but something was def a little suspicious in this game, the favortism towards the pats was quite obvious. They got all the calls. Even a Bad pass Interference call on jones. Even with refs favoring the pats, i still think they outplayed us on offense and we didnt do enough to win on offense. They put up the points, we didnt. Our offense just isnt very good yet and its costing us games. Our defense is keeping us in games but they gas out eventually if u keep them in there too long.

    It's situational football. When you go for a punt block, you open yourself up to those kinds of mistakes. By sending jn more blockers than usual, you increase your chances of a penalty in that spot. Simple. In that situation, the dolphins had just held the Pats prolific offense and was gaining momentum. Had they just called a regular punt return instead of the block, the penalty would not have occurred and the Dolphins likely would have had the offense starting a few yards from midfield. Yes, Wilson is to blame, but so are the coaches for putting him in that position when it absolutely was not needed.

    Was bush being a puss when he dove for that TD last week?


    I thought that Tannehill dive looked like a 1st down. But that's just me. Oh well, you can't have outstanding officiating every game.

    Yeah, but I'd like to have decent officiating just one game maybe.

    I think Bess is a bigger culprit of not getting an extra yard or two when we lays down. But then again,when he does try to get an extra yard or two he loses a yard or two and a first down in the process. Not trying to dog on Bess, I like him alot. But Bush's effort is not the problem.

    This is 100% wrong. You can say the same thing about Jamall Charles, Shady McCoy, Spiller, CJ etc.. need I go on? You take the possibility of a loss for the chance at an ankle breaking run. This is the case with ALL RBs that are 205lbs(estimate) and below. So you not only want Reggie to be a bruiser and get those hard 2-3 yards when there is no hole, but also want him to catch balls out of the backfield and make electric plays like a lighter RB does? Good luck with that, because that player doesn't exist.

    If Reggie had a hard time hitting open holes or his decision making was bad we'd hear about it. From professional analysts not few dolts on this forum.

    All the hate that Reggie gets on this forum. He averages 4.5 YPC, almost 800 yards (gonna be another 1k season on the ground), consummate professional and a leader of our locker room. Mind you he's being underused and not even utilized to the best of his abilities (talking about receptions). All of this, yet this guy must be a bum right?

    In other words. Get real dude.. You and the rest of the haters on this forum.
