I know for a fact I'm missing at least 5 guys who I can't think of right now.

bush is absolutely terrible as a runner, but he can catch the ball pretty well. if i wanted a runningback i would go with slaton 10/10 times

I was just giving this a little bit of thought, thinking of what RB it is that I would have to even consider Bush...

Julius Jones maybe...and even then I think I might just rather have Julius...

Bush just sucks...he can't hit a hole AT ALL...just like Barry Sanders couldn't...only unlike Barry Sanders, Bush doesn't have any moves to hit a home run...


just make the guy a WR/PR or something...he is worthless as a RB...

Slaton all day.

Have buddies at WVU so I been watchin him play since college. I like my feature back to actually be able to carry the ball between the tackles.

Bush is a dynamic returner and is dangerous in open space, but as a RUNNING BACK, it's really no comparison in my mind. Bush is too lanky and runs too high. Plus he has horrendous vision and toughness. Might as well make line him up wide and catch passes in the slot.

Don't really like Bush. Seen him play in person and he is explosive as I've seen with room to roam but not a good running back. Slaton has excellent center of gravity and is easily a far superior ball carrier
