He had two good games in the past 4 and one game in which he was injured.

72% completion and 2 TDs against the Rams with a 112 rating. 290 yards and 1 TD against the Colts with a 90.9 rating.

I'll give you the game against the Rams. The Colt game was pedestrian at best. He's had 9 games....that's not a good thing.

Well just as everyone had a love fest with Bush when he came here you can continue ragging on him now because no way he gets re signed.

Accountability. You do something to hurt the team, you get some time to think about it on the bench.

And again, you guys are talking as if Reggie Bush is rushing for 150 yards a game, he hasn't had a good game since week 2.



Well.....he sure as heck won't get 150 yards on the bench. He also was playing hurt for awhile. Sunday, he seemed to have his burst back. The fumble sucked, but this team does not have enough depth and talent to shut down its best players.

:) :) :)

So because he had his first bad game in two months, you were right?

Wow... after over a month with no interceptions, a rookie has a bad game and that means he was too raw to start.

Head firmly embedded in arse.

First bad game in two months? has he had a good one? He is the unTebow. He looks the part. He acts the part but he can't come from behind and can't lead. The guy has a QB rating worse than Chad Henne and we're extolling his virtuous ability to not turn the ball over? Yeap...I'm the one with my head up my arse. The best game we've seen from a QB this year was when Matt Moore stepped in after the injury. I said it last week and I'll say it again: You can't just play safe football and expect to win. Yesterday this team scored 3 points against a team yielding 25 a game. RT has 5 TD passes. Some QB's have 5 TDs in one game. So while its nice that he can lead a team that is dominating the other team....it would be nicer if he could lead this team when things aren't going so well.


Yes, he was playing good leading up to that game. His quarterback rating over the past month was over 90. That was higher than Luck, RG3, and every other rookie in the NFL over the past month. Tannehill was absolutely ready to play this season, you can't blame him when he lacks redzone weapons, his o-line can't sustain their blocks, and our running game has all but dissappeared.

Bottom line, when the rest of the offense does it's job, Tannehill looks like a franchise quarterback. When they screw up, he isn't good enough yet to overcome that, but then again neither is Moore or any other quarterback we have had on our roster over the past decade. At the end of the day Tannehill is still a rookie, and he will get better. The big question for us is whether or not the team around him will get better.

"And I was very very disturbed about that, because you can make a statement on a stupid penalty like (Richie) Incognito had, but you don't make a statement to Reggie Bush, who plays his butt off each and every week. That's when you start losing the locker room. It's just crazy to me."

Me too and look what happened, the team got rolled. I was there, it was bad, no heart, no nothing. I'm still pissed.

If he fumbles Thursday night does he get cut?

Hmmm I am going to go way out on a limb and say maybe he was using hyperbole?

I hardly ever agree with Harrison, but I do here.

Junkie, I like you Man..........but you've got to stop with comparing benching Bush to possibly benching Tannehill. The QB position if different from any other position on the field. If you bench your QB, then your saying he can't do the job and the team is going in a totally different direction.


It's different?

If we're talking accountability then EVERY player should be held to the same standard. Luckily for us we have a guy like Matt Moore in case you want to send a message to Tanny for a series. I'm seeing talk about this being two games in a row with a fumble for Reggie, well this was the second 3 interception game of the year for Ryan. Rookie or not that cannot be tolerated. It's not like the kid doesn't already know the job is his for now, so sitting him down SHOULDN'T shatter him.

Reggie has been the consummate pro and works harder than any other guy in that locker room. It's not like he doesn't already know he needs to be accountable for his mistakes.

No matter how you want to spin it, a rookie quarterback throwing interceptions and a veteran runningback fumbling the ball are two completely different things. Rookies will make rookie mistakes, they'll struggle from time to time. In those instances it's the veterans job to pick them up, not make matters worse. That was the message I think Philbin was sending to Bush. He was saying that Bush is a veteran leader on this team, he's a pillar of the lockerroom, and big mistakes like that early in games aren't going to be tolerated. Philbin told Bush by benching him that he expects more from him, he expects him to lead by example, not fumble the ball.

With Tannehill, we're still coaching him up, he's a rookie, not a veteran. He's still learning. Part of that maturation process means getting back out there and learning from your mitakes. A perfect example was the 2nd interception. Tannehill saw the linebacker draped over Fasano so he thought he'd throw the ball to Fasano in order to draw an easy flag. Well, no flag came and the ball got picked. Even the announcers noted that the guy was all over Fasano. But no flag came. What's the lesson to be learned? Don't count on the refs to throw the flag. I doubt we'll see Tannehill make that same mistake again.

With Bush's fumble, what can you really tell the guy that he doesn't already know. Bush's fumble was a careless mistake made by a veteran leader. I'm sure Philbin has made that point to Bush. Philbin is a straight forward guy, he doesn't mince words. If he has a problem with a guy, he confronts that guy immediately. He calls the guy over and tells him what he expects, how he expects it, and that's the end of it. I seriously doubt that not benching Bush would have changed the outcome of that game. I seriously doubt that as one poster put it, that Philbin will loose the lockerroom.

I think we're all overreacting here. I fully expect Bush to get the majority of the touches Thursday. I fully expect that the entire team is circling the wagons and has moved on to focusing on Buffalo.
