Dear Stephen Ross, Please re-sign Reggie Bush.....!
I'd bring him back as long as it was affordable. Which it should be....
Today we saw the best and worst of Reggie, a few great runs but even more 1 yard and negative yard plays that made me swear at my tv. I have no idea what to do about Bush.
Dolphins please play Lamar Miller more.
But a more diverse offense and consistent offense this guy is solid.
Unless we are going to use Reggie properly, I don't see the point in keeping him.
one great play...but way too many dancing and trying to bounce it outside plays when he just should have taken the three yards
if affordable, i would resign him because he brings the professionalism to the team that Philbin wants
but i honestly do not think he is a priority
That's because the OL can't open up a hole on a regular basis...
They are gonna be forced to resign Reggie.Daniel Thomas is too injury prone..
reggie is a tough one to decide on bc he tends to dance way to much in the back field with negative results, but also makes big plays. if he comes cheap he will be back
Bring him back.
The o-line opened up a hole big enough to drive a truck through at one point- Bush inexplicably didn't see it, and tried bouncing it to the edge. A play where he'd still be running resulted in a 2-yard gain. This happens with Bush a little too much for my liking. It's not always the o-line's fault.
It is not a difficult decision at all. RE-SIGN REGGIE BUSH AND TRADE DANIEL THOMAS FOR A BAG OF DORITOS AND A 2 LITER SODA. Then you draft a bruiser type to back up Bush and Miller. See how simple that was?
i agree 100%. he misses holes bc he is always wanting to bounce it outside. on that sweep play today if he would have cut up instead of bouncing it he would probly still be running
I want Reggie back too but not as a feature back. Use him more on passing plays and some tosses. Let's see what Miller has to offer these last two games too.
Do we resign marcus thigpen? Bush can be a return guy to
I'm not a big "pro-Reggie" guy, so your point is taken. My point is that it doesn't matter who we have at RB with this OL, they don't open holes consitently....the only one on this line right now worth a **** is Pouncey...
Martin and Jerry have been completely unable to open holes on their side...Incognito just sucks....and sucks even more in the zone blocking scheme. We need to change the OL big time. If we don't, expect the same crap next year.
Do we keep the third best returner in the NFL? Take a guess...
The Reggie knockers would have eliminated that 53 yard gain today. He never would have been in the game, let alone getting the ball, if they were the deciders.
Imagine their dismay when he burst into the open field, and suddenly their petulant outbursts during the first half were wiped out within seconds.
You've got to love it. Seriously, you've got to love it. That's what happens when you bet against a great talent. Looking stupid is well earned. I'll bet against Daniel Thomas and take my chances.
Sean Payton eliminated the 53 yard runs. He had the same mindset as countless posters on this board. When Reggie started slowly, Reggie didn't get the ball. That was particularly true during the final two seasons in New Orleans, and that's one reason why Reggie averaged a full yard less as a Saint than Dolphin. Of course, Payton was bailed out by the fact he had Drew Brees and many effective skill position options. In our case the Reggie knockers are particularly pathetic because they don't want him to get the ball, while simultaneously denouncing our receivers as the worst in the league, and the quarterback as an inexperienced rookie who can't be expected to carry everything on his own. As I said, you've got to love it.
If it were up to some of the Finheaven faithful, Cam Wake would play RB, Randy Starks would play TE and Reshad Jones would play WR, while MIke Pouncey would play both ways on the OLine and DLine. Everybody else can "walk" like we will magically find thse "better players" to replace them.
Reggie is the biggest offensive talent we have outside of the "potential" of Ryan Tannehill. We would be damn fools to just let him walk.
Yeah, I don't disagree about the o-line at all... My ideal scenario would be to leave Martin at left tackle, kick Jerry to right tackle, and draft a guard or two in the middle or later rounds. I don't know what FA guards may be out there, or even what FA right tackle's if they decide to keep Jerry at guard. I agree that Incognito needs to go, he's not cut out for the zone scheme.
I would hope we resign thigpen to but hey u never no.
Reggie is the biggest drive killer on the team. The people wanting Reggie on this team really doesn't understand football. One 53 yard run does not make up for 5-7 rushes per game where he doesn't take the yards on the field and ends up with negative plays. Especially with the kind of offense we have now. Every one of the 5-7 negative runs equals a punt. There is no way Philbin is going to allow him back on this team next year. I really think we would be in the playoffs this year if Reggie wasn't on this team.
A big run every two or three games in NO WAY overcomes the 15-20 drives ended over that same time because he is so unwilling to take what is there, always trying to break the big one. I would rather them bring back Pat White than resign Bush. And I am 99.9% convinced Philbin sees the same thing. Wait an see.
What a crock of ****, last I checked coaches like explosive plays. I'd like to see some evidence any coach would rather have thirty 3.3 yard runs than a few big plays mixed in with minimal gains for the same 100 yards.
The problem with Reggie is not his sporadic yards per play but the fact that he's relatively expensive for a running back and has proven to be a hit away from missing games. A lot of teams in the league would gladly make Reggie their feature back if he would sign with them for free.
OUR problem as an organization is he is our one and only playmaker. I don't know if you can be a contender paying a running back $7 million per year in this day and age but I do know that you won't be a contender with zero playmakers on your team.
Re-sign Bush, let Long go. Then use the smattering of draft picks to get an OT/G and a WR. Walterfootball is calling for Eric Fisher and Stedman Bailey. I agree with the principle, but maybe the Dolphins can package the xtra picks in the 2nd and the 3rd for better talent than those guys.
There was a wasted opportunity in the 2nd quarter where there was a huge hole stairing at him, yet Busg decided to try to get to the edge and lost 4 yards. The commentators even pointed it out
Not to mention the fact that he's mediocre on his best day.
MILLER's d*(k. He has shown virtually NOTHING so far.
Agree dude. I don't get all these fans saying "yes, but only for cheap" or "he doesn't do this or that". He's the only dangerous player on offense and this will be back to back 1,000 yd years w 4.5-5.5 yds per carry. I don't care if the average goes up due to occassional long bursts. 3 yds per carry doesn't get it done in todays NFL - its about play makers - and Bush is a proven play maker. Heck, have him rtn punts too like he did so well for NO. Get another back that can compliment him. Throw more to him like NO did. But by all means don't let the guy walk.
what a deceiving stat line bush puts up it seems...one big crater size hole carry that you could run a truck through for 53 yards surrounded by a bunch of east and west when he should be putting his foot in the ground and going north and south...in a zone blocking scheme no less
bush isn't getting it done and that per carry average is tainted by all the negative runs and 2 yard gains etc as a result of too much bouncing things wide in an effort to gain the corner...
i'm over it...give me north and south
this is such a tough question. production is good but could be so much better.
But I just watched an interview with Reggie and ive made my mind up, the guy is a leader, such a hard worker, such a fantastic example. Guys even if it means overpaying him a bit he needs a new contract he is important to the future of this team on and off the field.
Plus he is a guy that people will pay money to watch, and there is very few of those on this team. If one of the goals is putting butts in the seats . . . you can't get rid of Reggie Bush. Plus like you mentioned, he is an example for your entire team . . . very stand up guy.
I think Daniel Thomas being injury prone has really made resigning Bush more realistic. I also think Martin's play at LT and the impending loss of Jake Long's fat contract help the cause as well.
Very good comment!!! I agree 100%.
Yes you re sign him. Aside from his tremendous work ethic and leadership ability, he averages 4.5 YPC and is the only Dolphin capable of making a big play the next time he touches the ball. If they sign a WR that can truly threaten a defense, Reggie will produce even more. I think he has proven he can stay healthy and function as an every down back.
