Found November 13, 2012 on Phin Nation:
The Miami Dolphins did not show up on Sunday against the Titans. Quite simply, the Dolphins came out flat and stayed that way throughout the game. Where was the Dolphins dominant rushing defense? Where was the efficient quarterback play? Where was the turnover free football that has helped the Dolphins of late? None of it was present on Sunday. I’ll apologize now, as I’m still on vacation, so this will be an abbreviated recap. But here is what I liked and what I didn’t in the Dolphins 37-3 loss to the Titans. What I liked Lamar Miller – I know, I know, he only got playing time because Reggie Bush was benched. However, you can’t help but get a little excited every time this guy touches the football. He ran 3 times for 12 yards and caught 2 balls for 13, so his action was limited. But, you can see the home run potential in this kid. Brian Hartline – Hartline showed up again catching 8 balls for 79 yards. He didn’t catch a touchdown, but he caught balls in traffic and also showed the ability to get open. He’s proving people wrong, but must have more production in the touchdown department. Ryan Tannehill’s hustle – On his 3rd interception of the day, Tannehill didn’t give up and tackled the Titans’ defender before he could get into the endzone, in a game that was already a blowout. I’m sure that part of it was frustration, but it was nice to see Tannehill hustling down the field to make a touchdown saving tackle. Sadly, that’s all I could salvage as far as ‘likes’ goes for Sunday’s game. The Dolphins came out flat and played flat the entire game. I was in attendance and I know that people are down on the South Floirda faithful. However, people were just looking for something to cheer for; But the team didn’t give us ANYTHING to cheer for on Sunday. (cont’d on page 2, click below) Pages: 1 2

Bush, Dolphins need to step it up vs. Bills

DAVIE, Fla. On his last visit to Buffalo, Reggie Bush capped the best day of his NFL career by sliding through the end zone following a fourth-quarter 76-yard touchdown run. Now, hes doing a nosedive. After a phenomenal end to last season and an impressive start to this one, the Dolphins running back lately has been paranormal. At least Bush knows it. I have to apologize to Dolphin...

Reggie Bush Hopes He Doesn’t See Topless Buffalo Women During Rowdy Bills-Dolphins Matchup

Reggie Bush might not have been on the field much during the Dolphins 37-3 blowout loss to the Titans, after coughing up a costly first half fumble. But he figures to be featured in the offense once again on this week as Miami heads to Buffalo for a quick turnaround on Thursday night. During an appearance on the Paul and Young Ron Show in Miami on Wednesday morning, Bush admitted...

Looking to Turn the Page

Reggie Bush is out of Coach Joe Philbin's doghouse, which might not be large enough to house all of the deserving Miami Dolphins. Bush and teammate Richie Incognito were benched for part of Sunday's 37-3 loss to Tennessee, but they were hardly the only culprits in the Dolphins' most lopsided home defeat since 1968.

Short Week, Short Memory for Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins were left shell shocked on Sunday in their 37-3 loss to the Titans.  The Dolphins came out flat, sloppy, and looked like they wanted to be anywhere but on the football field.  The good news for the Dolphins is that they don’t have to wait very long to get back on the field and right the wrongs that took place on Sunday.  The Dolphins will be leaving Wednesday...

Bush, Incognito sit for miscues

Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin has made it clear there's nobody bigger than the team, and in Sunday's 37-3 loss to the Titans he backed up his philosophy with action. Philbin benched two starters -- tailback Reggie Bush and left guard Richie Incognito -- for their mindless plays during Miami's embarrassing loss. Bush, who ended with 21 yards on four carries, was...

Rabbit Punches: Soldier Field Condition Reminiscent of Actual 1800′s Battle Field

Reggie Bush found himself on the bench this week after continued trouble with fumbles. Next in line to take Bush’s spot are Kris Humphries and Kanye West. As America honored our veterans on Sunday, Soldier Field played a fitting host to the Sunday night game in more than just its name. The weather played a big role between the Chicago Bears and the Houston Texans, and the actual...
