There's something rotten in Dolphinville. With the team trudging along winless, fans resorting to a "Suck for Luck" mindset, and a soon-to-be-fired Tony Sparano putting his house on the market, players on the team are understandably frustrated and lashing out like angry kids during a long car ride. Earlier this week, Reggie Bush declared, "This team stinks." Now Yeremiah Bell has hit back by dissing Bush, proclaiming, "He stinks."
There's nothing worse than a stinky Bush.
"It's just embarrassing. I don't know any other way to explain it," Bush told the media after Sunday's loss. "It's an embarrassing loss. Had no business losing that game. We were up 15 points with what, five minutes left to go? And we couldn't win it? It's disgusting. Right now, this team stinks."
Obviously, no one is arguing with Bush (though we could argue he's doing his part to ensure the team's failure), but it's still shocking to see a player publicly dis his own team.
"He stinks," Bell replied, according to CBS Sports.
"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."

Linebacker Kevin Burnett seems to agree with Bush, though.
"You are what you put on tape. You are what the numbers say you are. And right now we stink," he 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."
