There is discord in the Miami Dolphins locker room. Yeremiah Bell is mad that Reggie Bush said "This team stinks" after the Dolphins' painful 18-15 loss to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
"We were up 15 points with what, five minutes left to go? And we couldn’t win it? It’s disgusting," Bush said at the time.
Bush's candor is what disgusts Bell, though.
"He stinks," the Dolphins safety told Examiner.com on Wednesday. "That shouldn't be said around this locker room. We know that we're 0-6 and we're not playing the best but at the same time there's no need for that."
Dolphins fans would probably disagree with Bell. If the team didn't stink, after all, it probably would not have blown a 15-0 lead with 5 minutes to go on Sunday.
Besides, Bell may want to think twice before lobbing criticism at one of his teammates. He starts for the defense ranked 21st against the pass by yards allowed per game.

An 0-6 record appears to be taking its toll on the harmony inside Miami's locker room. Commenting on Bush's statement following the team's latest loss that the team stinks, Bell said, "He stinks."
Miami Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell isn’t happy with running back Reggie Bush’s comments claiming that “this team stinks,” when referring to the Dolphins. On Wednesday Bell indicated what he thinks of Bush. “He stinks,” said Bell. “That shouldn’t be said around this locker room,” said Bell. ”We know that we’re 0-6 and we’re not playing the [...]
The Miami Dolphins are the laughing stock in a league which includes the Cincinnati Bengals and Oakland Raiders. In NFL terms, that is pathetic.
The Dolphins are 0-6 in the 2011 regular season, and have lost nine straight games dating back to last year. they have an anemic offense, a weak defense and a lame duck head coach and general manager. Not to mention the fact...
Reggie Bush created a bit of controversy on Sunday when he said the Miami Dolphins are a team that "stinks" following their 18-15 defeat against the Denver Broncos — a loss in which the Dolphins blew a 15-point lead in the final three minutes of regulation.
The Miami Dolphins are through fighting with each other, and have united against a common opponent: the media.
Apparently, when someone says one of his teammates stinks, he means something entirely different, which does not reflect upon the actual target of that statement. The Dolphins are as bad at rhetoric as they are at football.

Sometimes it’s impossible to keep negativity out of a locker room when a team comes up short of expectations. That’s where we start our talking points for Friday: 1. The Yeremiah Bell/Reggie Bush exchange demonstrates the team unity we’ve been hearing about isn’t all there. A week ago the Dolphins said that one of the [...]
Numbness, thoughts of cheering for another team (I just don't like the Raiders or Forty Niners). Constant heart palpitations. This is what it's like to watch a Dolphins team that seems to physically and mentally crumble on the field. In the lockeroom, the team is loose and not pressing. I find this very disturbing. As a fan, I should have an opinion, but as an...
