Bush says Jets had it coming with Revis injury


Reggie Bush doesn't sympathize with the New York Jets regarding their loss of cornerback Darrelle Revis for the season to an ACL injury.

In fact, Bush thinks the Jets had it coming.

"It's like the old saying, 'What goes around comes around,'" the Miami Dolphins tailback told The Paul and Young Ron Show in South Florida 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 was referring to Jets coach Rex Ryan's comment last week about the Jets' defense needing to put some "hot sauce" on Bush before Gang Green's overtime win over the Dolphins. Ryan was jokingly referencing when linebacker Bart Scott made a similar "hot sauce" comment while facing Bush during Scott's time in Baltimore.

Also, after the teams' divisional bout Sunday, a game in which Bush was injured, Jets linebacker Calvin Pace was quoted saying "we had to put him on out."

Pace later clarified his remarks.

“I wasn’t trying to say it as if we were trying to hurt him. I’m sad to see him get hurt,"  Pace said, according to the team's website. "We aren’t running any kind of bounty system or anything like that ... I guess I need to say things in a different manner, and I’ll do a better job of it next time."

Bush might be doing some clarifying this week, as well.
