Found November 13, 2012 on Phin Nation:
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 for Buffalo and a game with the division rival Bills awaits. While it is good news that the Dolphins don’t have to wait long to get back on the field, it also means that they don’t have much time to correct the issues that plagued them against the Titans.  The Dolphins need to do a better job running the ball, throwing the ball, and stopping the run.  That’s a lot of work that needs to be done in a compressed period of time. Sorry, I had to include one of my favorite pictures from this weekend’s game (she says hi by the way).  Ryan Tannehill needs to get back to playing mistake free, turnover free football on Thursday night.  If you take out the Jets game 3 weeks ago, when Tannehill only attempted 5 passes, he has posted a QB rating of 86.5 or higher in each of his last 4 games before Sunday’s nightmare against the Titans.  He looked like a rookie quarterback on Sunday and must improve. However, he has the right makeup and ability to do just that. Why was he so bad on Sunday?  First, I don’t think he was THAT bad on Sunday. Yes, he threw 3 interceptions and yes, one of them went for a pick-6.  But overall, his completion percentage is the same it had been all season. He did rely more on check downs because the Titans sat back in coverage.  Tannehill was only blitzed 10 times out of 40 drop backs.  That’s not something he’s used to because teams have been blitzing him like crazy. He will adjust and he will improve.  (cont’d on page 2, click below) Pages: 1 2

Bush benched, Tannehill erratic, Defense lifeless in loss to Titans

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...

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...

Is Ryan Tannehill Miami Dolphin’s ticket to the play-offs?

The experts believed Miami Dolphins were going to have a poor run as there are no stars on their team. However, with Ryan Tannehill, the quarter back on the team, they have been able to stay up there. A week ago, he threw two touchdown passes and the team was able to turn back continuous scoring threats from St. Louis. Miami won the game despite the team was outgained 462...

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.

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.

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...
