NY Jets cut Aaron Maybin; Reggie Bush keeps it classy

Just minutes before Reggie Bush jumped on a conference call with the Buffalo media in anticipation of the Bills-Dolphins matchup this Thursday, Aaron Maybin got cut from the New York Jets. You’ll remember Maybin as the part time linebacker that said the Jets want to “knock out Reggie Bush” before the two teams met in the Meadowlands in October.

When told that Maybin had been cut, Reginald took the high road.

“Nothing at all. I have nothing to say about him, nothing negative to say about him. You never want to hear a guy getting cut because this is our livelihood, and this is how we make our money.

“So you never wish that upon anybody. But I have nothing negative to say about the guy, and hopefully he gets another shot to get back in this league.”

When a reporter told Bush that players are not supposed to wish injury on other players he replied with a laugh

“You’re not supposed to, but I guess that’s what they kind of did.”

Bradshaw’s “Chicken” comment shouldn’t be taken as racist

NFL on CBS football analyst Terry Bradshaw got himself into a little bit of trouble last week with a comment he made in regards to Miami Dolphin running back Reggie Bush.

While calling the highlights from the Dolphins-Colts game, Bradshaw said about Bush while he was making a dynamic run for a touchdown that it was “like he was chasing that bucket of chicken the wind was blowing”. Within minutes of making that statement, it went viral. Twitter, Facebook, blog sites, you name it. The video was up and people were commenting on it, asking whether or not it was racist.

When I heard it immediately, I cringed a little to hear those words come out of Bradshaw’s mouth. However I listened to it again to get a little more clarity. I wish most people who were calling Bradshaw a racist would have done the same. Taking the time to do some research wouldn’t hurt either.

Bradshaw’s partner on the set is none other that the great Miami Hurricane coaching legend Jimmy Johnson. Jimmy, after the story happened as we are told, came to his partners defense in saying that Bradshaw was referring to him because Jimmy loves to eat fried chicken each Sunday before they go on air. In fact in the Youtube video of Bradshaw saying what he said, he references Jimmy in it saying “look at this Jimmy..like he was chasing that bucket of chicken the wind was blowing the other day”. When Bradshaw apologized, he said he meant to say “you” as in talking about Jimmy.

Critics will not believe Bradshaw made his statement towards Jimmy Johnson and not Reggie Bush. They will instead look at any opportunity to jump on a person and yell “racist”.  But I ask the non believers, why not believe Bradshaw? Why, as Blacks are we so quick to pull the race card, especially in sports? This wasn’t a blatant exercise of racism. This wasn’t a fan calling a player the “N” word. This wasn’t a tv analyst saying that if Blacks “take over coaching like everyone wants them too, there’s not going to be anything left for the white people” ( see Jimmy “the Greek” Snyder). This in my opinion was an honest slip of the tongue and the omission of one word for the other.

I don’t know Terry Bradshaw personally, and neither does 99%(if not more) of the NFL fans watching his show every Sunday. I can listen to statements when made in the “heat of the moment” and decipher if they are meant to be malicious or not. Bradshaw’s statements were not meant to be that way. Those that will call him a racist should listen instead of yelling and they will see the same thing.

NFL Injury Update

Reggie Bush- Left Knee

The Miami Dolphins aren’t saying much now other than Bush will have an MRI on Monday morning to determine the severity of the knee injury. Bush’s left knee has been a problem for him in the past.

 

 

 

 

 

Darrelle Revis- MCL or ACL

In the same game, Jets star cornerback Darrelle Revis may have a more serious knee issue, perhaps an MCL tear. Just like the Dolphins, team officials are tight lipped about his situation as well.

CJ Spiller- Separated shoulder

A lot of fantasy football owners are worried about CJ Spiller, as they should be. Spiller injured his shoulder Sunday afternoon in their contest versus the Cleveland Browns. The leading rusher in the NFL was carted off the field, and officials, fans and “fantasy” owners are hoping the injury is lesser than the reported shoulder separation.

Darius Heyward-Bey- Concussion like symptoms/head injury

DHB was hit pretty hard yesterday by  Steeler safety Ryan Mundy. It was a clear hit led by a helmet and although there wasn’t a flag thrown on the play, the NFL will undoubtedly be fining Mr. Mundy.

The Raiders announced that Heyward-Bey had a neck injury. He too, like Spiller, was carted off the field after laying motionless for a little while.

Reggie Bush Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

Great honor for Reggie. This guy works hard.

What will he gain from his work ethic? A new contract? A pro bowl invite? A playoff win?

Well maybe not that last one, but Reggie will be rewarded. I guess those late night workout sessions at Sunlife Stadium worked.

Reggie Bush was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 2, it was announced today by the National Football League.

Bush rushed a career high 26 times for 172 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins 35-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders. His two touchdowns came on runs of 65 yards and 23 yards, becoming the first Miami player to rush for two touchdowns of over 65 yards during his career as a member of the Dolphins, his first being a career-long 76-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter at the Buffalo Bills on December 18, 2011.

The honor is the second time that Bush has been selected as the Offensive Player of the Week as a member of the Dolphins, and the third time in his career. He previously was selected following his Week 15 performance at Buffalo in 2011 as well as after Week 13 in 2006 as a member of the New Orleans Saints.

This is the first Player of the Week honor for the Dolphins of the 2012 season.

Miami Dolphins Lose in Week 1. What Else is New?

7 times the Miami Dolphins have faced the Houston Texans. 7 times they’ve come up short. Although a lot of people thought and knew that the Phins couldn’t win on the road, with a rookie starting at quarterback against a top defense in the league, it was great to see them hang in there for 24 minutes in the first half.

Ryan Tannehill shrunk in the pocket (literally and figuratively) as he tried to lead the Dolphins to their first win over the Texans. He went 20-36, 219 yards and 3 interceptions. For most of the first and second quarter, the Phins were holding on to what could have been a close game. Then all of sudden Tannehill started shrinking in the pocket. Hitting the Texans offensive lineman in the hands about 3 times, with 2 of them leading to interceptions. Other than the int’s, the rookie showed some signs of being good.

The running backs seem to have fresh legs in this early season. Reggie Bush who is the only weapon on the team, looked like the Reggie of last year. Marcus Thigpen returned a kickoff for 72 yards, and can be used in the run game as well. Javorskie Lane had a good run, and if it wasn’t for Daniel Thomas getting knocked out of the game, he was on his way to having a decent day. 

The Dolphin defense had it’s moments. But for some reason they can’t seem to be able to contain tight ends and star receivers on the other teams.

The truth of the matter is this team isn’t that great and the front office hasn’t done much to help their young rookie. With Oakland, New York Jets, Cincinnati, @ Arizona, @Cincinnati, and St. Louis coming up, surely the Phins can steal 2-3 away in the next 5 weeks.

Stay tuned…

Reggie Bush workout video at Sun Life Stadium

Check out this quick workout video with Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush and somewhat Kim K look alike, minus some assets. Actually her name is Lia Smith and she is very pretty. We especially like the extra “bounce” at the 1:07 mark.

The video is done for Equinox Fitness Clubs which are owned by…Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Good looking out for your employees Ross!

Manning and Wayne could be a 2-4-1 deal

 

Peter “the” King of SI.com is reporting that Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne could be a package deal to land in a stadium near you (or near me which would be Sun Life Stadium where the Miami Dolphins play;).

This bit of news has football fans in about 6 cities salivating at the present moment. King writes,

Such a pairing would not only be a plus for Manning, who would love to see it happen, according to one NFL source. But also it would allow him to go to his new team with one familiar receiving face, and if you can say one thing about Manning, it’s that he loves familiarity, particularly in how his receivers anticipate throws and the precision of their route-running.

The South Florida area is on the verge of exploding with some superstar talent not only at the American Airlines Arena where the Heat play, but at Sun Life Stadium where the ‘Phins play. Reggie Bush, Brandon Marshall, and possibly Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne?? South Beach can’t get any hotter..or could it?
