Even The Dolphins Believe The Dolphins ‘Stink’
The Miami Dolphins are currently 0-6 this season. They are arguably the worst team in the NFL. Many fans have said they stink. Now, some of the players are saying their teammates 'stink' too.
The Dolphins lost to the Denver Broncos 18-15 in overtime last Sunday. Following the game, Dolphins' running back Reggie Bush said that the Dolphins 'stink'. Safety Yeremiah Bell didn't care for Bush's comment. "He stinks," Bell said emphatically. "That shouldn't be said around this locker room," Bell stated according to the Examiner.com. "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."
Reggie Bush stood by what he said. "I still stand by it because there's nothing fun about being 0-6," Bush said. "There's no room for sensitivity in this league. This is a man's game and we all signed on the dotted line. It's time for a little gut check," Bush added. "What do we want to do? Do we want to listen to the media and maybe lose the rest of these games, and play for the first pick? Or do we want to play for a little pride and turn this thing around, and maybe make a push for the playoffs?"
Okay, I was halfway with Reggie until he mentioned the playoffs. You can really sense the added frustration from Reggie Bush who came from enjoying a lot of team success with the New Orleans Saints the last few seasons. Let's face it, the Dolphins stink. However, it's not going to help anything for players to say that their teammates stink. Just play ball, Fins.
