03:46 PM ET 11.14 | Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush was benched in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans. Bush ran the ball four times for 21 yards, but also had a fumble. Bush believes that it is the first time since he's played organized football that he has ever been benched, but he does acknowledge why head coach Joe Philbin did it: "The only thing I can control is fumbling the football." The loss dropped the Dolphins to 4-5, two games behind the two current Wild Card holders, Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts. Bush believes that this is a team that can get back into the playoff hunt, but they can't make the mental mistakes like what they made against the Titans: "When we are fundamentally sound you see we're a pretty good team. When we're not, penalties, turnovers, its a recipe for disaster," Bush knows that the responsibility falls on him when it comes to running the football to protect it. He even knows that to be considered a leader, mistakes like that just can't happen: "It was a rough day. I fumbled the ball. That's something as a leader & veteran of the team I can't do. I'll bounce back"

Hmmm...no mention of Tannehill's 3 int's as a possible contributor to the blowout loss?

Veggie Bush's conduct that made him give up his Heismann was a mistake.

If they'd just tape a $50 bill to the football he'd never fumble.

November 14, 2012  09:07 PM ET

It would be nice if he can get more playing time. I think we can all agree that we'd like to see more bush.

They want Tannehill as the ROY.Russell Wilson is the ROY.

You are correct about Tannehill--but I say let him and Luck and RG3 get all the attention, while Wilson just quietly gets better each week.

I'm glad to see he manned up and admitted his mistake: Out of four carries I dropped the ball once. Hey, that's means 75% of the time I don't fumble right? 75% is considered a passing grade so I must be doing ok. Right?
