08:03 AM ET 09.23 | Do lose lips sink ships? Veteran linebacker Jason Taylor expressed disappointment on Thursday that knowledge of Miami Dolphins' players-only meeting that he led became public. ... "It's a little disturbing that what was talked about in the locker room to begin with was talked about outside of the locker room," Taylor said. "That's a little disappointing to me. There was no media in there, so it shouldn't have been public." Taylor said the meeting among players "should have been a very private moment." After the loss against the Texans, Taylor said he doubted whether some of his teammates possessed the confidence necessary to win.

Probably because they don't trust him. He jumps from ship to ship every year.

It must've been Reggie Bush. He learned all about publicizing private moments from his ex-girlfriend.

he should be more disturbed at his decision to go back to Miami.

One thing for sure... Taylor doesn't possess the skill sets necessary to win.

Not any more.

All this media attention has the Dolphins feeling like they live in an aquarium.

September 23, 2011  08:31 AM ET

Reggie Bush probably tweeted the whole thing while it was going on.

The Dolphins have to understand that they are, in fact, a below-average team. They're 0-2, but they've played two teams that are likely to win their divisions. So, their record is not surprising to anyone, and it shouldn't surprise them, either.

Jason Taylor is right. This team is going to beat itself before they even get on the field.

Looking up at the rest of that division from 0-2 is a perfectly good reason to panic. At least they have a lot of good night clubs to choose from when they give up on the season.

He should only know what the guys on the set say about his dancing.

As long as you don't mind him practicing his tapdance routine during defensive line meetings.

He has a point, keep what happens in the locker room in the locker room

Absolutely. JT isn't the same player that won Defensive Player of the Year a few years ago, but he is still a very good player playing two thirds of the defensive snaps. His professionalism was never in question. He's right about this. And all of you who say the Dolphins aren't very good are right also.
