Reggie Bush had perhaps his worst outing in recent memory during Sunday's 37-3 trouncing by the visiting Titans.

The seventh-year running back totaled just 21 yards on four carries and one catch for 8 yards against a bad Tennessee defense.

Most notably, Bush lost a fumble in the first quarter, his second muff of the year. The mistake prompted coach Joe Philbin to bench his lone offensive playmaker for a majority of the half, a decision Bush later defended.

Admittedly embarrassed with his "effort," Bush tweeted an apology to the fan base for what they had witnessed.

Although he'd return in the second half, Bush would receive one carry (which was nullified by a penalty) and, for good measure, added a dropped pass to his stat sheet.

Following a hot start to the season, the 27-year-old has cooled down considerably. Despite averaging a healthy 4.4 yards-per-toke, he's topped the 100-yard mark on the ground just once -- way back in Week 2. In fact, he's failed to top 60 rushing yards in any of his last five games.
