Reggie Bush: Jets ‘laid down a little bit’

The New York Jets and Miami Dolphins exchanged plenty of trash talk leading up to Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium and, when the contest was over, it was the Dolphins left with bragging rights.

The Dolphins jumped out to an early lead against the Jets, were up 20-0 at halftime, and 27-3 after three quarters before eventually scoring a 30-9 win over their division rival. Perhaps nobody from the Dolphins was more pleased to get the big win than Reggie Bush, whom the Jets seemed to target to injure during the Week 2 meeting between the teams.

Bush only had 59 yards on 14 carries, but he fired up his team with a 19-yard run on the opening drive that included a stiff-arm on Antonio Cromartie. Add in a blocked punt returned for a touchdown, and the Dolphins didn’t need a ton of offense. Bush even says the Jets let up once the Dolphins got on top.

Mike Pouncey: Aaron Maybin is a joke, won’t play enough to hit Reggie Bush

It may only be Thursday, but the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets have exchanged enough trash talk over the past four days to last an entire season. Most of it has centered around Reggie Bush, as some of the Jets players have vowed to get revenge on Bush after he called Darrelle Revis’ season-ending injury karma.

One of those New York players was linebacker Aaron Maybin, who told ESPNNewYork.com on Thursday that Miami wants to knock Bush out of the game with a legal hit. Dolphins center Mike Pouncey said he is not all that concerned about Maybin injuring Bush, since he believes Aaron will spend most of Sunday’s game warming the bench.

“I don’t even want to talk about (Maybin),” Pouncey told Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel. “He’s a joke. He’s not even going to play enough plays to touch Reggie. I have to be on punt block to say something to him.”

Now children, let’s all just take a deep breath and count to ten. The game will be here soon enough. Earlier this week, Rex Ryan said he wants Bush to apologize for saying Revis deserved to go down. With the way things are heading, it sounds like the Jets and Dolphins will need a kindergarten teacher on Sunday instead of an NFL officiating crew.

LaRon Landry: ‘I’m not going to stop hitting or head hunting’

Reggie Bush was injured at the hands of the New York Jets earlier this year, and LaRon Landry does not feel the slightest bit of remorse about it. Landry and Sione Po’uha combined on the hit that fortunately caused only a minor injury to Bush’s left knee, and Landry said he is confident it will be in the back of the Dolphins running back’s mind and make him gun shy in the future.

“He will remember that hit,” Landry said Wednesday according to Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News. “Every time he sees me, he will remember that hit. Just watch the way he runs on Sunday. I’m not going to overtalk it or make it a story.”

Prior to their first meeting, Rex Ryan mentioned that the Jets need to “throw some hot sauce” on Bush because he had been running so well. After Bush hurt his knee, Calvin Pace made some questionable comments that had some wondering if the Jets were trying to injure him. That led to Bush saying Darrelle Revis’ season-ending knee injury was karma, and now the mystery is whether or not New York will retaliate on Sunday.

If it comes down to a situation where Landry meets Bush in the open field, it doesn’t sound like he intends to show any mercy.

“If I get penalized, I’m not going to stop hitting or head hunting,” Landry said when asked about his aggressive style of play. “I’m not going to stop the way I play.”

Not exactly the type of comments Roger Goodell’s wants to hear from the NFL’s defensive players. It’s one thing to say you won’t change the way you play to accomodate the new rules, but calling yourself a head hunter is never a bright idea. By making these comments, Landry is simply forcing the refs to keep a close eye on him this weekend.

Reggie Bush’s girlfriends all look alike (Picture)

Ever since breaking up with Kim Kardashian, it has been established that Reggie Bush has a type. The Dolphins running back likes brunettes with curvy bodies, just like Kim K.

In the photo above, you’re looking at Bush’s three most recent (publicized) girlfriends. From left-to-right, it’s Kim Kardashian, Melissa Molinaro, and Lilit Avagyan.

Bush and Kardashian had an on-again, off-again relationship from about 2007-2010. Despite seeing or being with other people, there have always been rumors that they were possibly getting back together.

Bush began dating model/actress Melissa Molinaro (middle) in June 2011. Her resemblance to Kardashian was considered so strong that Old Navy was sued by Kim K. for violating her rights and attempting to cause confusion in the marketplace.

Bush’s latest girlfriend is Lilit Avagyan, who began receiving attention this week after it was reported that she was pregnant with Reggie’s baby. Avagyan is Armenian like Kardashian, and looks similar to the reality TV star.

There must be some sort of Kim Kardashian power that sticks with guys after they date her. Even her ex-husband, Kris Humphries, began dating a girl with curvy features similar to Kim after the two divorced.

Reggie Bush says Darrelle Revis injury was karma for the Jets

Darrelle Revis is the most important player the Jets have on defense, and he is arguably the most important player they have on their entire roster. Now that he has been lost for the season with a torn ACL, New York will have to figure out ways to win games without him. It was as unfortunate an injury as Rex Ryan could have been handed, but Reggie Bush has classified it as karma.

“It’s like the old saying, what goes around comes around,” Bush told the Paul and Young Ron Show Tuesday according to the Palm Beach Post. “They talked about all week about putting hot sauce and this and that, and they ended up losing their best player for the rest of the season. So, it’s sad that it happened because of that, but I’m going to be back.”

Bush is referring to the Jets saying they had to “put some hot sauce” on Reggie Bush heading into last Sunday’s game because he had been playing at such a high level. What they meant was they had to hit him hard, and after Bush injured his knee Calvin Pace made some comments that could have been interpreted as him saying New York was trying to injure Reggie.

If you believe in karma and you think the Jets were trying to hurt Bush, feel free to run with that theory. As we know, injuries happen in the NFL. Every year teams fall victim to losing their best players for the season, and the Jets simply have to find a way to deal with it.

Calvin Pace on Reggie Bush: ‘We had to put him on out’

The Dolphins were able to run the ball against the Jets very effectively on Sunday until Reggie Bush left the game with a knee injury late in the second quarter. Prior to limping off, Bush carried the ball 10 times for over 60 yards. Daniel Thomas filled in for Bush and carried the ball 19 times for only 69 yards, so I guess you could say the injury worked out for New York. But were they rooting for it?

Jets linebacker Calvin Pace probably should have chosen his words a bit more carefully when speaking to reporters about Bush after the game.

“I guess he was doing his thing for a quarter or two,” Pace said according to the NY Daily News. “We had to put him on out. We didn’t see him again.”

Manish Mehta pointed out that replays of the play where Bush was injured didn’t reveal any cheap shots or dirty play, but you can see how Pace’s comments could be interpreted as New York trying to injure him. He may not have meant that and may have just been saying the Jets were struggling against Bush, but in the wake of the Saints bounty scandal players need to be more cautious when talking about injuries.

Reggie Bush thinks Didier Drogba will be hitting Nazi chicks, make perms popular

Reggie Bush sent a tweet on Saturday that he probably would like to have back. The Dolphins running back was watching the UEFA Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea, and he came away impressed with Didier Drogba.

After seeing Drogba score a tying goal in the 85th minute and then the winner in penalty kicks, Bush tweeted about how beloved the Chelsea forward will be. At first he suggested that Drogba’s hair style would catch on in England:

OK, fair enough. But then Bush ventured into a questionable area when he suggested Drogba would have sex with a German woman later that night:
