Is he a decent RB who complements McAllister? YES.

Was he worth all the hype surrounding him and a 1st round, 2nd overall pick? Not in my opinion (anxiously awaits all the "Give him another 2 years, he'll be the next Barry Sanders!" responses)

Funny though how much criticism the Houstan Texans received when they didn't pick him up at #1.

he is a scat back once his speed goes he is nothing, he wont be like barry sanders or payton he doesnt have the power or the jook skills or the finesse those guys had.

he basically just relies on speed and lacks power the way he got tackled that one time is just painful

He cant run between the tackles and really i dont think is nothing more then a complimentary back

every good team in the league uses a 2 back system, reggie caught 100 balls last year. the saints play callin was horrible this year, i watched all their games and it was just odd. yes he does need a complimentary back but thats not a bad thing- hes a weapon and is designed to be in the slot, all over the field, return big punts- he couldnt do any of that this year because they couldnt risk it.

just because you cant run between the tackles doesnt make you a bad player, he can develop it and thats not what he was drafted for anyway. give him another year and then we can decide

SO that is not a big accomplishment. She is essentially a 5 star hooker.




Must not FAP, must study for exam. **** it, I wanna tear that ass apart. Its gonna look like a grenade has exploded once am done with it.

So far, yes I agree he hasn't lived up to the hype. However, I still think he has the potential to be a much better version of Tiki Barber.

i dont think he is a bust he just needs to be utilized differently. it wasnt worth it to draft him where he was though, not even close. most of his games he gets like 30yrds so that is something no one wants in their RB. hes great for mismatches and change of pace but i dont think he has what it takes to be a primary back

Yes, he came in with a bunch of hype. He put up decent numbers last year, because he didn't have to carry the full load. Next year he should get back to his '06 numbers.

Reggie Bush is going to have more than 1800 yards in a season? He'll barely have half that this season.

Bottom line, he sucks, he doesn't deserve all those commercials. He is over rated.

He is not rly a RB, he works better in opean field and off those quick HB passes, i wuold not be suprised if u see this guy play WR down the road, think his a lil 2 small to play RB.

Did I say he would this season? No, I didn't. Reading comprehension is your friend.

Tiki had 935 yards rushing his first three seasons combined, averaging 3.7 YPC.

He runs behind a crappy o-line and has his coach makes terrible gameplans. This is only his second year - I'll give him 2 more years before I label him a bust.

Apparently, it's not your friend because I said 1800 yards in a season, not particularly this one.

Tiki wasn't a starter early in this career.

He had a very good rookie season last year. He had over 1300 total yards and 8 tds. Not bad for a rookie. And to say that he doesn't have moves is a little over the top. He was utilized last year in the way he should be. He isn't a every down rb. Now he can play every down but it hurts without Deuce this year. I think your judging the guy a little harshly for only have played one full season.

It will still be a few years before we know if the Texans made the right decision or not.

Both players have improved this year over there rookie season. The one downside in Bush is his fumbling. Bush already has 7 fumbles this year compared to 2 last year.

He is carrying the ball more this year also, which could be the difference in fumbles deuce was there last year.

What i dont understand about bush is when u look at his college highlights he is big ass **** and now that hes in the nfl its like he got smaller.

and in his hs highlights it looked like he couldnt even run.

Explain this 2 me? how some 1 goes from slow ass **** to big ass a motha ****a and fast like a bitch

He is averaging more carries per game but if you look at the stats:

YEAR TEAM G ATT YDS AVG TD FUM LOST
2006 NOR 16 155 565 3.6 6 2 2
2007 NOR 12 157 581 3.7 4 7 3

He is still big now. He looks the same size. Maybe a little thicker. Because his highschool highlights are from several years. when 17 and 18 is a big difference from 23, 24. Especially if you have a good workout program which i am sure USC does.

Right I am just saying that is more carries p/game. Those att. are for 16 games. I am not taking up for him I am just saying he carried it less times a game so fatigue didn't come into play maybe. And him being used in different situation rather than trying to run him up the middle like they do more now.

yes

big difference between "sucks" and "is overrated"

he'd be a solid addition to any team. Take the hype away and you'd have a guy who would be considered pretty darn good.

It depends on how you word it, if the poll question was:

"Is Reggie Bush a bust as a RUNNING BACK" then I don't think it would change much. He hasn't done **** running the ball out of the backfield, but when you line him up as a receiver or give him those dump/swing/screen passes in the backfield he is a whole different type of player. Put him in open space and he is going to make people look stupid, but he is not a north/south, between the tackles runner which is why his career YPC is like 3.7 or so.

I don't see how people say he's "too small."

Look @ what Warrick Dunn did, he's smaller and still beasted between the tackles.

He wasn't afraid to run between the tackles. Bush is too concerned about losing his tooth for the next pepsi commercial

Warrick Dunn actually WANTED to run in between tackles. Reggie Bush does not (as Nodice alluded to). That's why Chris Johnson who has elite speed, like Reggie, has been a beast so far. North-South runner's excel in the NFL.

"North-South runner's excel i nthe nfl"

What kind of dumbass statement is that.

A correct one? The only one who could run back a yard to gain 10 was barry sanders. However he lost the most amount of yards in NFL history. Jim Brown, arguably the greatest running back in the nfl said it best. He said he didn't wait for the defender to hit him, he hit the defender. THAT'S A RUNNING BACK!

Reggie Bush is one of the best receiving backs in the nfl but at the end of the day he is a compliment to Duece...who is a north/south runner

Love the Jim Brown quote Nodice. Might want to reconsider your statement slightly though, as Deuce isn't on the Saints depth chart. :)

For a #2 pick overall, yes. If he was a late 1st rounder or a 2nd rounder he would be fine being an awesome punt returner.
