    You know it right? It seemed to me that for some reason Philbin and co. (Ireland behind it?) did not Bush to get his 1000 yds. rushing today. 8 carries??? Really?? The guy needs 40 yds for a significant achievement and you decide not to give him a shot at it? For what reason? The game was clearly over before it started, so why not give him the ball at least 15 times for christ sakes.

    I just do not get it. I think Ireland was behind it, passing the message down to Philbin, so his agent will not ask for more money because of the 1000 yd season. Shame on them.

    Whatever the case, Bush is clearly pissed about it, and I think this seals it. He will NEVER want to play for the Dolphins again. He probably will not even listen to their low ball offers.

    My guess is he surely signs with the Jets, 3 year deal, and the Jets beat the Dolphins 2x next season on 2 great games from Reggie. Book it! :crazy:

    Did you watch the game? Reggie had like 7 carries for 8 yards at one point. The OL was being dominated, the team was behind, and the running game was ineffective.

    Could be that at one point he had 7 carries for 8 yards...

    Reggie dances too much when he should of cut up field.

    We need WRs who can get separation. Teams stack the box on us. I can't blame Reggie although he does dances too much at times.

    Did you watch the game?? We had no where to run!! We were also down 21-0 most of the game. We couldn't block a group of pass rushers from a nursing home today. Plus he fumbled at the 1yard line.

    Ya, you kind of need BLOCKING in order to run. You wann blame someone, blame Ireland for putting together the atrocious o line that allowed New England to cement RT into the turf and open up nothing for a running game. I hope to God that we are able to get some playmakers in free agency, because you are probably going to HAVE to draft olineman AGAIN because its the biggest weakness on the team. Which should be IMPOSSIBLE considering how much money and draft picks have been spent on it! Pathetic!!!

    Yes, please. Instead of March Madness this year, can we have some kind of Thunderdome contest in which guys like this, dolphans1 and nyjunc get exiled to the Depths after being forced to participate in grueling fights to the death?

    horrible performance by the o-line today, but bush could have made more plays instead of dancing around or running into the back of the lineman. i dont get it with reggie, one game he can be outstanding and the next he can just stink it up

    I think it's likely that we'll be using Miller more next year. Bush still makes for a good passing catching RB, which is where we need to use him more, and is also a better pass blocker than Miller.

    The game didn't evolve well for Reggie but he didn't play well and has no beef. On the fumble he tried to jump cut outside after sensing Mayo was going to blow up the inside design, and Reggie forgot forgot to bring the ball with him.

    It reminded me of many games when he was a Saint. If the early carries are blown up, suddenly the I formation is junked and Reggie doesn't touch the ball. As I pointed out a couple of weeks ago, he has a considerably lower yards per carry when he doesn't carry the ball at least 13 times.

    This was an uphill game. That's my friend John's astute term for a massive transition from one week to the next. We hosted perhaps the worst team in the league then played on the road versus one of the best. That's severely uphill. Invariably the team in an uphill mode is a bit shell shocked and has trouble adjusting. Our offensive line still wanted to block Jacksonville at home.

    From the outset we were on skates. Reggie was wearing a fanny pack, as were most of the players. It's a fragile team that earned its spot, which was missing the playoffs by 3 full games. Cincinnati, the 6th seed, won 10. We won 7. Forget about being close.

    I think Reggie will sign with his hometown, San Diego Chargers or the Raiders.

    Reggie did not fumble. Tannehill was indecisive about the read and didn't get it to Bush cleanly. That fumble was on Tanny. If this team gave a shat about its players they would have made sure he got his 1k yards. It's **** like that that makes free agents think twice about coming to Miami. Reggie has been kissing their assets all season and they phuck him over...winning starts at the top and the top guys in our organization don't have a clue.

    I love when people bring up the cap, we will see how much cap space the Jets have when next season starts.

    How is the OP a doom and gloom post?? Reggie to the jets would be the greatest thing that could happen, unless it was Reggie AND them deciding to give Sanchez one more year. If Sanchez was under center and Reggie "the drive killer" Bush was in the backfield, they could keep Saprano on board and might set a record for the lowest point total in the history of football.

    Reggie to the gets would have me dancing on the ceiling. Although I really don't care where he goes as long as he isn't here, the jets would be a PERFECT place for him to go.

    I don't see how you can blame the QB for that handoff. I like Bush and I want him to be resigned, but that play was on him. He didn't have a strong game today, but really, who on this team did?

    Our passing game was ineffective as well. Should we stop passing because of that? Or take the ball away from Tannehill and give it to Moore as a punishment after his INT?

    Yes your right but NYJest are 20mil over and have a tonne of guaranteed contracts ala M.Suckchez being close to 13.5 mil against the cap. They have a bunch of players like this so it will be very difficult for this team to release enough players to get to the cap let alone under it.

    It was Tannehill's fault. The QB has to put the ball into the rib cage of the RB. When a QB hands it off he has to be accurate. There is no over/under or slightly next to it like a pass where it easy to always fault the receivers. A RB cannot recover from from a bad hand-off without an OL-man being right there. The ball was handed into Bush on his left arm.

    Me and the stat sheet disagree with you. But it really doesn't matter. We got our asses handed to us, our season is over, and we still suck....I need a drink.

    UH NOT ANY MORE!!!! I was going to start a thread about this subject, but Miller had a GREAT game today in pass pro. He has made huge strides in this area. He also didn't look lost like he did early in the year. Miller looked great today. Several times today when there was NO holes he would wedge himself between two lineman and pickup 4 yards, where Bush in those same situations will run backwards and lose 3. Miller is the future and a great reciever out of the backfield.

    Now im not saying that they will be under the cap like crazy, but they will be able to sign one or two decent FA's. We have the rollover money from this season.

    Yeah, my agenda is .... The Miami Dolphins.

    I am not the one having a man crush on a certain player and make every excuse in the book. I gave Tannehill credit where credit was due this season and I criticized him when it was warranted. Bush did not run very well too but he also had only 8 attempts. But the fumble was not on him.

    Agenda? :lol: Laughable at best.

    I saw the replay in slow motion, I'm pretty sure it was square in the chest.

    Reggie deserved to be benched. His fumbles are a real problem and the oline was having a terrible time blocking.

    Good riddance. He's soft and cannot break a tackle to save his life at the line of scrimmage. He's a perimeter player who hits the odd big run to up his average. Most of his runs are 2 yards and down. Money can be better spent elsewhere.

    Depends on what you mean by decent the roll over money won't take you out of the negative cap space along with the fact you have to have at least 6mil for the draft. The player also has to want to go there in order to sign with a team.

    One thing people need to understand, players play for the money, it doesnt matter for what team. The fans create the bitterness against the teams. Case in point, Jason Taylor.

    Correct. Knicks fans and heat fans don't like each other but melo and Lebron are great friends. I know Knicks fans that not only cant understand why they are friends but can't understand why in fact they don't hate each other. To the players it's a business, to the fans it's personal.
