Running back Reggie Bush took to the press on Friday to deliver an honest and obvious message, the Miami Dolphin’s stink this season.
Speaking about his teams last minute meltdown during last weeks game which took the Dolphins to 0-6 on the regular season Reggie said:
“It’s an embarrassing loss. Had no business losing that game. We were up 15 points with what, five minutes left to go? … And we couldn’t win it? It’s disgusting. Right now, this team stinks.”
Bush’s comment wasn’t taken well by safety Yeremiah Bell, a nine-year veteran of the Dophins who chimed in:
“He stinks. … That shouldn’t be said around this locker room. We know that we’re 0-6, and we’re not playing the best. But at the same time, there’s no need for that.”
After Bush was told what Yeremiah had said he quickly responded:
“I do stink, we all stink.”
I have to agree with his “I do stink” comment, since being acquired from the New Orleans Saints during the NFL lockout Reggie Bush has managed to rack up just 377 all-purpose yards with a single touchdown to his name.
That’s not to say that Reggie plans to give anything but his best, telling reporters:
“Do we want to listen to the media and maybe lose the rest of these games and play for the first pick? Or do we want to play for a little pride here and try to turn this thing around?”
“There’s no room for sensitivity in this league. This is a man’s game, we all signed on the dotted line, and whatever we’ve been doing is not good enough at this point.”
In the meantime the Dolphins will likely end up with the first round pick they desperately need to likely draft Stanford QB Andrew Luck for next season.
