Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC East:
Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin says tailback Reggie Bush is not in his doghouse.
Morning take: Bush was benched for most of the first half against the Tennessee Titans for an early fumble. Bush made a mistake but has been a great leader in the locker room and a hard worker.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, who coached Mark Sanchez in college, says the New York Jets put Sanchez in a bad spot with Tim Tebow.
Morning take: As I’ve said many times in the blog, I’m tired of people making excuses for Sanchez. That includes his college coach. This is a no-excuse fourth season for Sanchez and he’s not performing.
Buffalo Bills running back Tashard Choice had some choice words for New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes.
Morning take: Choice didn’t like that Spikes celebrated after knocking Bills running back Fred Jackson out of the game with a concussion. But the two teams don’t play each other until next year anyway.
How much better will Aqib Talib make New England’s secondary?
Morning take: A good cornerback can make plenty of difference. Talib may have to shake the rust early, but he has the talent to make an impact.
