Yeremiah Bell says Reggie Bush ‘stinks’

Miami safety Yeremiah Bell has a lot of pride and love for the Dolphins, despite the fact the team is coming off one of its most embarrassing losses in history.

Miami led Denver 15-0 with less than three minutes remaining in last Sunday’s contest but a series of mental breakdowns allowed an implosion unlike any seen all year.

The Dolphins would fall 18-15 in overtime and after the game Miami running back Reggie Bush told the media that his team “stinks.”

Well on Wednesday, Bell made it clear what he thinks of Bush.

“He stinks,” Bell said emphatically after being asked what he thought of the comments by Bush.

“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,” he said.

Whether or not Bell is correct on his assertion that Bush stinks, the initial comment has now divided the locker room.

Rookie center Mike Pouncey and several other players including CB Nolan Carroll and DE Tony McDaniel said they would never throw their team under the bus by saying the Dolphins stink.

“I just think he said it because he was mad like everybody else was,” McDaniel said. “But I would’ve never said anything like that.”

However, linebacker Kevin Burnett is in complete agreement with Bush.

“You are what you put on tape, you are what the numbers say you are and right now we stink,” Burnett said.

“If you’re scared to admit the truth, you’ll never amount to anything. So I’m definitely man enough to say we’re not doing things effectively and efficiently,” he said.

I asked Burnett since he believes the team stinks is he also including himself in that equation, considering he is part of the front seven which has struggled to stop the run.

Well, Burnett fell on the sword and admitted he stinks as well.

“I did include myself in that equation,” he said. “We turn over the football, we don’t get off the field on third downs and we allow big plays so that’s the equivalent of stinking. I mean, it is what it is.”

The differing opinions by Bell and Burnett may have something to do with the fact that they joined the team at different times in their career.

Bell was drafted by Miami in 2003 and has been with the team ever since, while Burnett was picked up in the preseason after spending four years in Dallas and two with San Diego.

Reggie Bush was also signed this offseason.

It’s not to say that Burnett and Bush don’t care, but clearly Bell and the other players who repudiated the statement have invested a lot more to the team.
