As someone who lives in Tennessee, I am forced into watching a lot of Titans games. On the plus side, I get to see a lot of touchdowns, but they typically aren’t the kind everyone else in Nashville keeps hoping for. While I wouldn’t say The Titans are the worst team in football, they definitely have one of the worst defenses and that means you should be starting Reggie Bush without question this week. In fact, I’m going to go as far as saying I would consider starting Bush over Arian Foster this week*. Foster’s matchup against The Bears this week is particularly challenging. Yes, Chris Johnson ran for 141 yards against them last weekend, but don’t forget 80 of them came on one break-away TD run. Without it, Johnson’s numbers would have been pedestrian.
Speaking of Chris Johnson, his game against Miami won’t be an easy one. He always has the potential to break a big run as he did against Chicago, but it’s hard to count on that sort of thing. Now might be a great week to sell hig

If you look at the Houston Texans latest double-digit win, this a 21-9 defeat of the Buffalo Bills, you probably wouldn’t gauge how close the game actually was.
For the majority of the game, no more than five points separated the...
BY NICK ST. DENISReggie Bush is the Miami Dolphins' most explosive offensive player, but his workload hasn't exploded as of late.His touches, in fact, have gone down at a steady pace over the last four weeks. He had 21 touches (19 rush, 2 receiving) four games ago against the Cincinnati Bengals, 17 (12 rush, 5 rec.) three games ago against the St. Louis Rams, 15 (14 rush...
Terry Bradshaw expressed remorse for a joke he made on Sunday while reading a halftime highlight of Reggie Bush scoring a touchdown.
Bradshaw was describing a highlight of the Dolphins running back scoring against the Colts when he said to co-host Jimmy Johnson, “look at this Jimmy, like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day.”
No reason to not believe what Bradshaw is saying. Here is his explanation for his on air gaffe.
“I’m so sorry if I hurt anybody and I’m shocked I’m in this position.
Bradshaw said the comment was just part of a running joke Sunday that Johnson’s “big thing is chicken, Kentucky Fried Chicken. He won’t share it with anybody.”

The Miami Dolphins are officially at the midway point in the 2012 season. The Miami Dolphins currently sit at 4-4 an alone in second place in the AFC East, as well as one game back of the two AFC wild card spots. The Miami Dolphins season has been a bit of a roller coaster as they started 1-3, then improved to 4-3 after a 3 game winning streak, only to fall back to .500 on Sunday...
Terry Bradshaw chose the wrong reference at the wrong time.
On Monday, Bradshaw apologized for comments he made during Fox's halftime show when he said Reggie Bush was running "like he was chasing that bucket of chicken." Bradshaw's comment was referencing fellow-analyst Jimmy Johnson, who eats fried chicken every Sunday.
Bradshaw told USA Today...
The Houston Texans (7-1) come to town on Sunday night. They have been a powerhouse so far in the AFC.
The Bears’ defense has been elite so far, but they will be facing some of the best talent on the opposite side on Houston.
WR Andre Johnson, TE Owen Daniels, RB Arian Foster are all playmakers this season for Houston.
QB Matt Schaub has found ways to get these guys the ball all...
There have some terrible acts committed under the watch of the NCAA over the years, acts that make you question the integrity of college athletics. Reggie Bush’s name comes to mind. So does Jim Tressel’s and recent allegations of academic fraud at North Carolina.
The NCAA has seen these acts, and it has likely been disgusted by them like we all have. It wanted to make sure such...
