Bush gives offensive line a belated Christmas gift

Reggie Bush is quite appreciative that just concluded his first season with over 1,000-yards rush. Although Bush will miss Sunday's season-finale against the New York Jets, he'll finish with 1,086 yards.

His previous high in a season was 581 yards in 2007 while still with New Orleans.

So, obviously, Bush is thankful that his offensive line helped in his effort. After all, there were some holes Bush ran through that a truck could fit through.

But showed that offensive line his appreciation today by buying every member of the line a Segway. A Segway isa two-wheeled self-balancing transportation vehicle.

Segways
A user commands the Segway to go forward by shifting their weight forward on the platform, and backward by shifting their weight backward. The Segway notices, as it balances, the change in its center of mass, and first establishes and then maintains a corresponding speed, forward or backward. Gyroscopic sensors and fluid-based leveling sensors are used to detect the shift of weight. To turn, the user manipulates the handlebar left or right. Segways are driven by electric motors and can go up to 12.5 miles per hour.

Bush just tweeted: "Direct Quote from the O Line: "This is the coolest gift I've ever received!" Mission Complete!"

Farewell 2011. Things will only get better from here. Happy New Year.

He will absolutely be a starter next season probably for the Redskins is my prediction.

Price, I wouldn't waste my time arguing this point. Henne was the ONLY Dolphin that started the season ready to play. Anybody that couldn't see the shape of the defense and realize the non existent run game and league leader in dropped TD passes, they ain't going to see it now.
I made this same Washington prediction the night he was injured. Since that time, I've revised it. Henne is the ONLY QB to have ever went Toe to Toe with Brady over the past 5 years(save the Eli Manning junk-PLEASE).
Belicheat will sign him cheap as Brady's back up. Henne will be paired up with Brady and Belicheat won't miss the irony.
Of course, Bellicheat will promptly cut Mallett, at which point, Ireland eagerly scoops him up and tells us all what a coup it was.
Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

I see the Henne fans, the few left, quote all the stats but his W/L stats.

I wonder why. Hmmmm.

Odin....just went back to the last blog.....what I posted wasn't meant to be an insult....although I will admit...it reads very rude.....

I just meant that the guy is a FREE SPIIRT....much like yourself....and I would think that you would respect that and want that in the LEADER of your team....

HAPPY NEW YEAR....and you know sometimes my post are HARSH....but they come from a good place....

Change of scenery will do both Henne and the Dolphins good. Sometimes it just doesn't click, for whatever reason. I wish Chad all the best, he was a better person than he was a QB but that doesn't win you enough games.

Posted by: Leo | December 31, 2011 at 02:54 PM

Well Leo, you SEE. All the good stats are Henne's. All those loses are because of:

1. Henning
2. SpOrano
3. No run game
4. Marshall
5. the rest of the recievers
6. The rest of the running backs
7. Etc, etc......................

Hope this helps-Happy New Years!!!!

ValHalla and Happy New Years!!!!

Henne 0-3 (0-6 dating back to last year)
Moore 5-2

Same team.


Hope this helps and Happy New Year.

An early Happy New Year to all! God bless the USA and our Armed Forces!

God bless churros and ho's tambien.

Redsky,

I was on the phone with a youngster in the Armed Forces earlier today.

He wanted to let me know all is well and wish me a Happy New Year.

I couldn't have had a better start for New Years Eve.

ValHalla-Happy New Years and God Bless you TOO!!!!

RGIII will do for football, what Jordan did for basketball, the kid is ELECTRIC!
RGIII is like Randy Moss with an arm.
And as the draft gets closer, don't be surprised if RGIII LEAPFROGS Luck as the #1 overall pick, reason being, Griffin has more UPSIDE than Luck, seems to me Luck is nearing His ceiling.
So yes fellow Dolfans, I SAID IT!, Griffin is BETTER than Luck, and Luck will actually be a FALLBACK option in this draft, and we can still acquire Luck in this draft.

and we can still acquire Luck in this draft.

Posted by: Fin'FanSince4Ever

OOOPS! I should've said, we will have to SETTLE for Luck in this draft.

Redsky,

I got a call from a Youngster in the Armed Forces earlier today.

My New Years Eve couldn't have started off any better!

ValHalla-Happy New Years and God Bless you TOO!!!!

Pat White will do for football what Jordan did for basketball.

On my way to a NEW YEAR's PARTY.....

See you in the NEW YEAR....

odin,Kris and redsky,

Happy New Year!!! odin is your Son State side or abroad, where ever he may be God's speed to one of our BOYS holding the FORT for the RED,WHITE and Blue!!

Thanks for end year award odin, I tend not to forget much although it can at times be a curse!

fin4, getting a serious JUMP on things, just right now I'm tending to some interesting guests, Johnny Walker and Sam Adams are over, am expecting Jose Cuervo when my Bro in Law arrives!!

***** MY DAILY RANT *****

Here is where I stand with the QB draft 2012 and options.

L. Jones;

I don't like seeing that deer in the headlights look of which he possesses. I would recommend that he remain in collage and hopefully his trainers and coaches can get him better prepared for the NFL.

RG3;

He is not NFL ready and quite frankly I am not into watching a QB running for his life for 98% of the game. He is very bright and a good kid with a personality to boot. I don't fault the kid for scrambling all over as that seems to be what his HC and trainers like.

I can see him in the NFL but it will take 2 -3 years of solid behavior training to make him into a pocket passer. Even at that when in trouble, the old fight of flight will take over and he will take flight. I see him as a starter for a team that wants a scrambler and potentially that team winning out but just like the wildcat package, the novelty will wear off quickly as soon as they get his number.

Overall, unless they can change him into a pocket passer i don't see him as a franchise QB and at best, a 5 yr wounder. Not what the dolphins are looking for.

Andrew Luck;

For the last two years this kid only gets better as he matures. for two years the NFL pundits and all sport beat writers, etc say he is the best thing to come out of collage and an instant starter who will do damage to the opponents.

He is THAT GOOD. Great pocket presence, checks down to all his options and shows that he is human. He is a great leader and a classy kid. I see a solid NFL franchise QB who is going to terrorize the NFL for the next 18 years +/-.

I would give up the farm for this kid. Do whatever is necessary to get him, give up picks for the next 3 years, he's going to be THAT GOOD.

When there is a QB THAT GOOD, opportunities like him don't come along that often so unless you can get Luck, look for more of the same as we will continue searching for Marinos replacement for the next 10 years. Go all out and get this kid otherwise sit on the sideline as we been and watch teams win super bowls as we remain the same.

Looking at the future QB's in collage I don't see anyone in the next couple of years that are as good.

Will the Dolphins go all out for Luck? That remains to be seen.

OPTIONS;

If the Colts land Luck Manning will be gone. I would make a run for manning which will last us 2-4 years until we can find his replacement.

Tomorrow the Colts lose. They release Manning and pick Luck. No way they trade that away, not for 10 picks.

Peyton won't last 2-4 weeks, if he even plays again.

Hey Leo don't embellish, Henne may be 0-6, but Moore is 5-6. Henne was hurt in game 4 against San Diego.

Hey Leo don't embellish, Henne is 0-6, but Moore is 5=6. Henne was hurt in game 4 against San Diego.

Wishing all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and let's look to a great draft and picking a great new Head Coach.

Enjoy the below to bring back memories and for all you young bucks, don't forget the past.

LEO:

I'M THE BIGGEST HENNE FAN UP HERE AND WE CAN PLAY WITH NUMBERS ALL WE WANT BUT IT TAKES A TEAM TO WIN GAMES PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

3 NEW STARTERS ON THE O-LINE.

WHOLE NEW OFF.

NO REAL CAMP.

NEW H-BACK.

OUR D LOOKED REALLY BAD TO START THE SEASON.

WE WERE SCORING 24 AND GIVING UP LIKE 28

BRANDON DROPED 6 TD PASSES.

THE BROWNS MARCHED DOWN THE FIELD TO BEAT US.

BRONCOS MARCHED DOWN THE FIELD TO BEAT US.

TWICE!!!

WE WERE WINNING AND ABOUT TO GO UP BY TWO TDS WHEN REVIS GOT AWAY WITH MUGGING BRANDON.

BRANDON WOULD HAVE DROPED THE BALL ANYWAY.

THE RUNNING GAME STARTED TO COME TOGETHER AFTER CHAD GOT HURT.

CARPENTER MISSED A FIELD GOAL IN MANY KEY SPOTS.

ONE GOOD RETURN ALL YEAR.

NO FAN BASE.

BUT YEAH YOU CAN BLAME CHAD HENNE FOR IT ALL.

HE PLAYED ABOUT 25 GAMES.

THAT'S WAY LESS THAN THE 48 GAMES PEOPLE SAY YOU NEED BEFORE A QB STARTS TO GET IT.

HE DOES NEED TO WORK ON HIS TOUCH PASSES.

BUT HE CAN GO TOE TO TOE WITH THE BEST.

I THINK HE HAS ELITE ALL OVER HIM.

zero chance henne starts anywhere, guy is horrible

colts will win tomm

wasnt all hennes fault,course not. but henne is one awful qb

OH I FORGOT TO ADD THAT HE WAS IN THE TOP 10 IN EVERYTHING LAST YEAR AND WAS MAKING LESS THAN 2 MILLION.

SANCHEZ WAS MAKING ABOUT 10 MILLION

I'M NOT DEFENDING CHAD I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE.

WHY NOT RESIGN HIM?

HE'S GOING TO BE CHEAP AGAIN.

why would u resign some garbage qb, and you just told a complete lie. henne wasnt in the top 10 in anything

Happy soon to be 2012 to all!!!!

I would absolutely say that the Henne debate is mute. He is going to be gone. Fact is, the NFL, the fans(most), life itself doesn't wait for success to ooze into the starting QB.

The modern NFL QB has to make chicken salad out of chicken shiza right away, with whatever oportunity is presented. Much like, QB Matt Moore who had ZERO training camp had to hit the ground running with the same team after Chad Henne got hurt in game 4.

Hey, excuses are like cliches, there are a million of them and they all fit for the user. Henne was chronologically on the team for 4 years. He had the benefit of learning the system, behind an Pro's Pro in Penny, before being tossed to the wolves.

In the end, both stale arguments will stalemate.

I will make the outloud statement/wager:

1. "IF" Henne is released and he has this shrouded mass of talent, then surely one enterprising GM will see how Miami did him dirty and will gobble the star in the making up. He will then ascend to the top of the depth chart and thus PROVE ALL HENNE FOLKS RIGHT! I will publicly apologize for my error in deeming him unfit to be a Fin.

2. "When" Henne gets released he will land somewhere most likely as most teams would like a tire kick on a younger guy with that much starting exp. If he stays mired in backup rolls or changes teams then HENNE FOLK SHOULD ADMIT THEY WERE WRONG.

Sounds fair eh?

Cheers!

To the threads point...

"Oh great, now they OL will be getting fatter and muscles will atrophy as they don't get proper excercise while Segwaying everywhere". ;)

He should have bought them all squat racks!

Lets go 2012 Fins!! Heyo!!

Cheers,

henne cant be released, hes a free agent, no reason they ever have to talk to him again

After the game tomorrow the very first move the Dolphins make should be to cut Marc Colombo.

Ryan Tannehill is a better Receiver than RGIII

Happy New Year phinfans! Ross & Ireland, give us reasons to believe in 2012!

All these excuses for Henne, but you all ignore the fact that Moore took over and instantly did a better job. After six weeks Moore did better than Henne did after 4 years. Quote your stats all you like, they don't win games.

Rob @ 6:09 makes the point clearer.

Blame the OL and everything else, but Moore did better with the same team Henne had. Let's not forget that the coaching staff benched Henne twice last year, and he was on his way to being benched again. Notice they never gave Henne an extension. Read between the lines as to what they really thought of him.

Happy New Year to all Miami Dolphins fans!

New York Jets fans - I hope you all get your D!cks caught in your zippers.

Personnally I think we need a shut down corner and a beast to put on the other side of Wake.

You fix the Colombo spot and the TE can be used better.

I would give Moore and maybe a player like Lineart the QB reins.

I do not think we are going to be in a spot to get one of the good QB's and like Moore enough to fix some of the other spots.

Would Indy give you luck for two firsts?? I would do that since it has a ton of up side, but Indy would be dumb to do that.

I think we had better start looking at the best D guy or maybe a trade down.

Go Dolphins!!

lol that's a pretty cool gift. It seems like something that would have been cooler as a kid though, I wouldn't have much use for it now. Those old motor scooters were pretty crazy to drive.

LEO:

THE TEAM HAD TIME TO GELL BY THE TIME MOORE GOT IN.

NOTHING MOORE THAN THAT.

DON'T FORGET THE 3 OR 4 GAMES THEY LOST WHEN HE GOT UNDER CENTER.

WE CAN ARGUE ANY POINT ABOUT ANYTHING.

BUT MY POINT IS IT'S A TEAM SPORT.

WITH 11 PLAYERS PLAYING ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE BALL AND SEEING THE MISSED BLOCKS, DROP PASSES, NO HOLES FOR THE RUNNERS, BAD PLAY CALLING HOW CAN YOU PEOPLE PLACE THAT ON CHAD.

ANYWAY GETTING READY TO GET OFF.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU.

MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES.


Hey Armando and the gang :-)))

HAPPY, HEALTHY and WEALTHY NEW YEAR FOR
EVERYONE, HOPE FOR A VERY STRONG DRAFT NEXT APRIL.

awesome now hire brian billick!

Segways?

Beats the hell out of Isotoner gloves.

feliz ano nuevo

Lets just hope 2012 isnt another New Year of the same old crap. Regardless, 2012 will be a New Year of the same old crap int this blog.

Happy New Year's of the "SAME OLD CRAP" everyone!

Happy New Year Boys!! I had my bridge set out on the Bay at our Mediterranean Port of call and set anchor. It's a breath taking experience were I encourage my sailors to feel free and express themselves in much the way our Lord brought them into the World.

I had a large shipment of epsom bathing salts brought on board in an effort to turn our whirlpools into bath houses my boys can enjoy for the Holidays and invite all you poor stressed Dolphin fans to join us. You boys really don't know what your missing until you've experienced my expert hands as a message therapist to ease your stress with my scented candles in my private Jacuzzi.

After much reading I believe I could do wonders for Mr. Yesterdays gone, fin4life and especially odin who's old brittle bones I could do wonders for with some expert backstroking.

Capt. Diggler, count me in.
Can I bring my BFF ALoco?

Here's looking to a better 2012 for our football team.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Jerry,

You and Aloco are more than welcome that silly BFF of yours would bring nothing but great joy to all my boys bringing merry musings with his goofy little antics as he parade's in his Birthday suit for us in the clown shoes and Merlin the Magician hat he told me about once in the Port of Panama. I imagine you've turned alot of frowns upside down with your brand of entertainment as well in the big house Jerry were I hear the fun can get rougher than a bunch of drunk Marines on leave after a six month incursion.

For some bowl games that have QBs with potential...

Penn State vs Houston Jan 2 TicketCity Bowl 12pm EST
QB Case Keenum has a live arm!

Wisconsin vs Oregon Jan 2 Rose Bowl
5pm EST
QB Russell Wilson has great potential as an all around athlete.

Oklahoma State vs Stanford Jan 2 Fiesta Bowl
8:30pm EST
QBs on both sides. The much ballyhoo'd Andrew Luck vs Brandon Weedon as the old man underdog. I think Luck's luck runs out in this game. ;)

Cheers! Happy (hic) New Year!!

I wonder if Columbo for a Segway?

If so, its probably the only time he's been up to speed with the rest of the offensive line...

Honestly, if he gave one to Columbo, he should return it, the guys doesn't deserve anything...

Post of the new Year.

The segway makes people look like dorks. That stupid movie when that King of Queens guy was a fat stupid security guard. It shoud fit Columbo real well. That will be his next job. Maybe they should ride those contraptions out of the tunnel to meet the Jets. Now that would kill. 6x300 lb lineman runng segways into the middle of the field. I am giggling thinking about it.
The next question is whether or not Bush was kidding. I mean a lot of the times especially at the beginning of the season these guys were turnstiles.
Never look a Segway in the buttons.

And Happy New Year.

Why the FVCK do I see a fat fvcking slob of a green and white piece of shyt when I click on the Dolphins in Depth?

With the the bold letters "ADVANTAGE"?

What kind of puss y ass be atches run this shyt?

You fvcking Goofs! This is a new fvcking year and your gonna plaster a fat fvcking pic of toe sucking fat fvck rex "excuse of a life doucheBage Ryan?"

Man, me and my boys would beat the fvck out of you dumb shyts just for this.

Armando, I hope you didn't have any part of this wuss Bag piece of shyt garbage that your "Employer" is puttinmg up here.

Despite the Fe-Aggs at the so-called Herald, Happy New Years!

What a Fvcking Joke!

Fat fvcking, Toe sucking Rex the Be-Loated wind bag Ryan?

Pitiful! The last freaking thing I want to see on new years! The Miami Herald is a bigger joke than the Phins!

Buy some self respect you sick FVCKS!!!!

PARTY!!!!

PARTY!!!!

PARTY!!!!

PARTY!!!!

Odin, Maybe a Little sleep would help?

WITH 11 PLAYERS PLAYING ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE BALL AND SEEING THE MISSED BLOCKS, DROP PASSES, NO HOLES FOR THE RUNNERS, BAD PLAY CALLING HOW CAN YOU PEOPLE PLACE THAT ON CHAD.
---------------------------------
I would not say I blame all that on Chad. As you said, its a team sport. Agreed. Chad (for me) allways looked stiff, lifeless,he never gave me that warm and fuzzy when he was on the field. That seemed to translate to the other players as well. Moore steps on the field, he is exciting, he gives you a glimmer of hope, he takes chances, it seems the rest of the team felt that also. It jump started everything. It goes back to a team sport, I wonder with a better OL, another top flight WR exactly how far Moore can take this team. The Henne debate is over, he is gone, he does not want to return to Miami anyway. Maybe he does go somewhere and play lights out, but I doubt it.. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL
