You're gonna get the dissers asking you to post his YAC to those 97 receptions. Be prepared!
I agree that it looks more like a WR numbers rather than a RB's numbers. I don't care what he does as long as he produces. He wasn't effective as a runner early on, but when you throw a pass and give him some open space, he makes things happen. He gets alot of dump passes so obviously his yards per catch won't be comparable to that of someone like Chad Johnson. We have McAllister, and he can do the downhill running, Bush is dynamic and is a definate game changer, get him some space and watch him go.
Honestly, if he finishes the season with three monster games, I bet he gets Rookie of the Year, simply because of the hype around him, not necessarily because he deserves it. I'd still give it to Marques Colston, either works for me.

I mean, that was an old school asswhipping. They even had to knee the ball at the end to keep the score down.
Total, complete, disgusting trip behind the woodshed last night. Payton schooled Parcells and the Saints whipped us.
Thanks for mentioning this miles, I am sure the Cowboys will rebound, but that was a sweet victory. It's nice to see that you are gracious in defeat.

Or do you get the ball to Reggie and hope he doesn't turn the ball over dancing in the backfield or throw him a 3-5 yard swing pass.
You must have missed the game when New Orleans absolutely destroyed Dallas, "The Best Team in the NFC". Reggie makes several big plays, and had a really nice touchdown in the game against Dallas. When the game is on the line, you put the ball into Drew Brees' hands. That is possibly the worst example you could have used. When the game is on the line, the ball is always on the quarterback, you wouldn't see the Chargers running a draw to Tomlinson with 0:05 left in the game, with the ball on the 30 yard line. No, they may line up Tomlinson outside or something, but the ball will be with Rivers, even though Tomlinson is the clear leader of that team.
Just so you don't overreact, I am not comparing Tomlinson to Bush, I am just saying that the ball will always be in the hands of the player best suited to excel in that situation. The fact that Reggie Bush wouldn't have the ball when the game is on the line, doesn't disprove the fact that he has had an impact on the game. If the San Antonio Spurs were down 100-97 with 3 seconds left, they wouldn't give the ball to Duncan to shoot the three, no, they'd give it to someone who is known to thrive in that situation, for example, Robert Horry.
