At the very least, it appears that foot traffic in one part of the greater Miami area might be a little backed up today. Through his Twitter account, Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush announced that he purchased Segway "Personal Transporters" for each member of his offensive line.
It would appear so.
Bush had good reason to be grateful to the guys blocking for him this season — as Miami's feature back in 2011, he posted his first 1,000-yard season in the NFL (1,086 yards through 15 games) and surprised many observers with his ability to run between the guard and pick up tough yards. In five seasons with the New Orleans Saints, Bush was much more a versatile back and provided more value in the passing game and as a schematic chess piece. Now, he appears to be much happier as the number-one back in the rotation he always believed he could be. Bush has grabbed 43 receptions in 2011, so he's kept that side of his game up.
And his new linemen are happier, as well.
The Miami front five currently ranks 16th in Football Outsiders' Adjusted Line Yards metric and 30th in Power situations, but try telling these guys that when they're busy vrooming around...
