While you're at it champ...I can post a WHOLE lot of merdiocre running backs that put up similar anemic rushing stats that Bush is doing.






...btw, if the running back position is so easy transition from college to the pro's (for the ones that can do it), why is Bush struggling so much?

Reggie Bush reminds me of Eric Metcalf. Eric Metcalf was a STUD in college. An absolute beast. But he was never a full time back. But he was one of the greatest all-around players ever. In the mold of a Herschel Walker, who basically did everything for the team.

I think Reggie will have that same type of career.

Bush cant be an everydown RB? Gotta love the morons here. I swear.

Sean Payton will not BENCH Duece McCalister just so Bush can prove you kids wrong. Duece makes a lot of money and he is also talented. He isnt a 36yd old RB on his way out. Sean Payton offense hasnt been a rushing attack, its been pass oriented. Bush cant tell the coach "Start me and give me 20 carries & 5 passes so i can shut up the haters".

Why do you think he cant be a fulltime RB.

No, I'm not. I already stated he a possesion WR. What more do you want me to say? If he was a big-play receiver, he'd be averaging 10+ yards a catch like Jones-Drew is doing, particularly since he's caught the ball an outrageous 84 times already.

The irony here? Him having 84 catches is actually a good thing. I'm done with this convo.

Well, for the next 4 or 5 years Bush will continue be a scatback by design then, huh? Wow, what a bunch of bullsh*t.

From watching Saints games on tv. Bush makes other guys around him better. Bush is a threat at wr, a threat at running the back. Bush gets double/triple team. Guys like Duece and Colston benefit from this, being wide open.

It doesn't matter how many yards Bush is getting. He's helping his team win..

Because he will have to decide which he values more: running the ball EVERY DOWN, or being their punt return/kickoff man. You can't do it all. He will get tired if he tries.

So until he becomes the a full time rb, you can't call him a full time rb. I never said he couldn't. But as of right now... he's Eric Metcalf.

Yeah, my man...just like averaging 3.2 yards a carry is a bad thing, duh? Ding, ding, ding...we have a winner here.

, how the hell can he make other people better when he can't make himself better?





...byw, since when was it made possible to "double/triple team" a running back into averaging 3.2 yards per carry? Just a question, though, cause teams really need to start "double/triple teaming Tomilson.

He will be an everydown RB. Right now the Saints are using him different from what some fans expected. Saints are winning and i doubt they will decide to stop using Bush like they have (recieving threat) for now. Fans tend to be impatient. It'll happen.
