Off of the rough outing in Pittsburgh last Sunday, next up is a divisional matchup with the Miami Dolphins. This will not be an easy test for the New York Jets, as the Dolphins are coming off a victory against the Raiders where they put up 35 points. Reggie Bush was the biggest threat last week, rushing the ball 26 times for 172 yards and 2 TDs. That threat has not been lost on linebacker Aaron Maybin. Here is what he had to say about him:
When you have a player with the kind of talent of Reggie, he’s a threat to score every time he touches the ball. There aren’t too many players that fit that description walking around in the NFL. You have Chris Johnson, Reggie Bush, there are very few (who can do that), especially at the running back position. At receiver you have Calvin (Johnson) and the guys out in New England, but when you see that at the running back position, it changes the way a defense has to defend against those teams. He’s definitely a guy that in your game plan, you definitely know where he is when he comes on the field.
That’s some pretty high praise for Bush, to put him in a class with those guys. There is nothing wrong with it, a health respect for a guy means they are going to know where he is, and key on stopping him. Good idea, because good speed runners like Bush have given the Jets fits in the past.
