Taylor said he doesn't like crowds so he usually avoids the mall, and figured he might not be much help navigating the aisles.
Todd Bowles is the interim head coach of the Miami Dolphins, and he probably doesn't care much how or why he got his first head coaching win — just that he got it.
That's good, because according to star (a less ridiculous label now than it would've been a year ago) running back Reggie Bush, the Dolphins got the win for their old coach more than their new one.

Reggie Bush’s decision to bolt from the Bayou to South Beach fairly can be characterized as a win-win.
