I am rooting for the Saints here but rooting against Reggie Bush (thanks to those classless Saints fans that just had to troll our boards).

I just think this guy is going to be another Eric Metcalf. He will have a highlight reel run here and there but when it is all said and done not a guy that will carry a team like everyone thinks.

Yeah. I heard that. All they are waiting for is just a "highlight" run. That's it. They are overlooking the integration of Reggie within the offense. I mean, I can understand this from the fans. But not the NFL analyst and former player who should know better. All this will hurt N.O. in the long run. Once reality hits them they will realize that they can't play the game this way (one-man offense) the hype will wear off.

It's just a novelty right now. :bananasplit:

I still stand by my comparison: Reggie is more like Marcus Allen than Barry Sanders. Although he does have juke skills like Sanders. He more an open field RB like Allen.

Very true!

What's funny is that if Reggie gets a 25 yard run. The bandwaggons fans (and ESPN) will consider him "the saviour." Which is an illusion.

When Alexander, Portis, Barber...or Lundy/Morency gets the same 25 yard run. We don't consider that "the saviour." We think of it as: There's more work to be done. Reality.

Well, I saw Bush touch the ball 4 times. He ran one of tackle and went outside for 8 yds. The crowd goes nuts! Yippee. :sarcasm: He caught a dump off and got, IIRC, about 5 yds. He ran a couple of sweeps and got NOTHING both times. Gotta give him some credit for the rookie learning curve and all that, since we do give it to Mario, but I was not impressed. When I saw the 8 yd. run off tackle, I just thought Morency would've gotten 15, lol.

You probably right. Some analyst will try and recant what they've said. But not completely get off the bandwaggon.

Then, next week or after the season starts. Reggie will get a single 50-80 yard run (IT WILL HAPPEN, COUNT ON IT; just like Metcaff, Allen, and Sanders did as well as a lot of other RBs will this year). Yet, because it's Reggie...they all will get right back on the bandwagon again and claim that's he "Jesus" again. And then the highlight replays will start all over again.

It only takes one highlight. And they will replay it over and over like a FOX "News" propaganda clip. Why? ----> Jersey/ticket sales $$$

Carr topics would be alot more bearable if both parties would just put aside the assumptions and preconceptions, and just accept that both sides of the argument have some truth to them

1. Carr, after 4 years, still doesnt look great.

2. Carr still has plenty of upside, and he is getting a new start with a real QB coach.

3. Carr has weaknesses that he may never shake, and he is making more money than he has shown he is worth.

4. His previous performances can be blamed MORE on Capers & crew, and the poor Oline, than on Carr himself.


All of the above comments are true. It is also true that Kubiak, who appears to be a pretty knowledable and capable dude, thinks Carr has potential and wants to see what he can do with him.

As long as Kubiak is backing him, I will trust that he has a reason to. Up to a point of course... if Carr still sucks in 2 years, im gonna start getting less supportive :D.


So there ya go... both sides are fairly right.. but Kubiak says Carr is the guy (for now) so just let it go. I dont see the point in bashing Carr anyway.. all you are doing is slandering the team.

It only takes one highlight. And they will replay it over and over like a FOX "News" propaganda clip. Why? ----> Jersey/ticket sales $$$

I think the one run that stood out to me the most was when the Saints were in the redzone and it was 2nd and 1. They pitched it out to Reggie and instead of fighting for that 1 yard he continued to try and outrun the defender to the outside where he ended up running out of bounds for a loss of about 2 yards.

I don't know how many times I've posted same........the speed of the NFL does not readily allow the outside option, and the strength of the NFL players are not of bamboo commonly seen in college. Either route, Bush is likely to get killed before too long..........if the Saints want to hasten the process, they ought to feel free to place him on the return team.:twocents:

It's a catch-22 for them.

Because, if an illusion is created that he's a scrimmage-line every-down RB and they try to use him that way...it will only take him away from his strength (open field speed). This will also get him pounded game after game (good luck on that ten year career). If they don't use him that way, they will just relegate him to specialty plays (returns and/or short passing route and broken plays); i.e. Allen/Metcaf.

I think you are mistaking distaste for jealousy.

Like, for example, if people were saying

"The Saints are the biggest freaking idiots in the league! Can you beleive they let Aaron Brooks go? What are they thinking? Say hello to another 40 years of bottom feeding you freaking morons!"

And then you saints fan would sit around in your forum and watch Raider games and laugh at Aaron Brooks playing terribly.. and yall would say "Haha! see! Look at how much better Brees is doing? Why isnt ESPN talking about how much Brooks sucks now??"

But then the Raider fans show up, beating thier chest and proclaiming "Hah hah! We stole Brooks from you! We are going to the superbowl!.. We find it hilarious that you sit here and act bitter over your loss blah blah blah..."

etc..etc..etc..

See what I mean? That was a really long example hehe..

He is very talented, but they've got to figure out how to use him. I dunno, you hate to pay so much for a specialty player, a third down back but its
difficult to see how you've got him in the game as a Tailback on downs one

All reports had Bush as the most highly ranked player on the majority of NFL teams Boards, yet apparently neither us or the Saints got a "godfather" offer
from any team. Between us and the Saints, I just wonder what was the best offer made for the rights to Bush ?

Actually, we are very critical of our team. Not all Texans fans like Carr. Not all Texan fans like Mario. Not all fans like either of them and would prefer Vince Young. And we know about or O-line and D-line and secondary. So, I assure you that we are not "insecure." We are critical and realistic about our team; i.e. we haven't proven anything yet.

Now that we know Bledsoe's excuse for playing so well, what is DC's against defensive juggernauts KC and STL? Please answer in the form of the truth, not truthiness. :)

I'm not really trying to invent excuses for Carr, but IMO there is a difference in degrees of craptastic between NO and STL and KC. STL put up some strong blitzes against DC ... KC had a lot of elite players running a decidedly Fangio-esque system. NO might well be the worst defensive unit in the NFL this year; bad players + bad playcalls ... JMO and don't take that too far. Like I say, not really trying to invent things here, but NO is really, really bad.

FWIW I'm rewatching the Texans game right now. Carr did look pretty sloppy those first few series. After that he looked quite crisp; made good, quick decisions. The Broncos will be a real test for Carr, and I am still confident that he will get to a point this season (soon) where he doesn't come out jittery. Hopefully.

Will be interesting to see how he continues to do when forced to work inside the pocket.

I think he has a lazy eye. Dead serious. IIRC.

From wikipedia:

Stuart Scott was injured on April 3, 2002, at the New York Jets training camp while reporting for ESPN when a football hit him in the left eye, requiring him to undergo cornea surgery. [3]. This was the cause of his lazy eye.

Scott is so ridiculous...i had to laugh when i heard that...i love how they showed two plays out of the 9 he had....its really too bad they didnt show him getting no where in between the tackles and getting run out of bounds on the other....hilarious!

I hope they reshow the play where he completely took the linebacker out of the play just by running toward him only to have a pass completed on the other side of the field.

yeah and i like our depth on the team, Plus Morency and Wali Lundy look good incase Davis cant go, So i think getting Mario Williams was the right choice. Plus bush cant go to the outside every play like he could in college !

Now that we know Bledsoe's excuse for playing so well, what is DC's against defensive juggernauts KC and STL? Please answer in the form of the truth, not truthiness. :)

You are kidding right??

did you see how wide open those recievers were?? I'm not saying our guys don't work as hard as theirs, but more than likely we haven't played a defense as bad as NewOrleans.

There were a couple of good passes......... one of Bledsoe's early ones, where he threw it where only his taller reciever could get it.... they caught a lot of guys coming across the middle.

But Bill Parcells is a freakin Genius.... did you notice most of their big play catches were thrown behind the reciever..... the reciever has to turn around, and make a play on the ball..... usually the corner is leading him, so when the ball is underthrown on purpose like that, there is no way anyone can defend that when they are one on one. They must have been working on that in practice, because Bledsoe & Romo were doing it..

Now Salisbury is piling on. This is a sick joke. OK, everything the Saints did right was because of Bush according to these idiots. Geez, why not say just the awe inspiring presence of Bush in the stadium led to Bledsoe's great game.

Well Newman did bite on that fake, and Joe Horn was wide open because of it. But that's what happens when you sell a play-action fake against an aggresive phisical corner like Tnewman.

ESPN will be like this most of the season, even if Bush has a crappy year, so get use to it. Hyping a 1.8 ypc outing is just the beginning. And don't expect Mario to get that kind of love, even if he starts sackin' fools by use of The Force.

I'm not impressed with Reggie Bush just yet. He had a nice run last week, but Pac-Man Jones shoulder-tackled him with ease and I have yet to see him put his head down and get after someone. He doesn't handle head-on contact very well, and the couple times i've seen him attempt to take a defender on he looked like an empty beer can.

I am sure he'll have his share of highlight reel plays this year but his numbers will probably be normal.

Someone needs to tell Stuart Scott that "filthy ridiculous" is not a cool thing to say.

This reminds me of when Michael Vick came back from his leg injury a couple years ago on SNF, and got jocked more than MJ and Tiger Woods. A cartoon surfaced a few days after it called "Mike Vick takes a dump" that was pretty funny. That guy needs to do another one this year for Reggie Bush.

My favorite thing about all of this is.

ESPN expects Mario to come in and make a difference from day one or we made a mistake and he's a bust, but the MNF crew were saying at the end of the game, "Reggie gets a year pass".

I have to wonder if Stuart Scott had to hype Bush up after his lackluster performance though. Scott has been in sports a long time, and he should know a bad performance when he's seen one. ESPN in general is the one that's bashed the Texans for taking Williams. I think ESPN execs probably wouldn't like it much if Scott criticized Bush in Sportscenter's opening segment.

I am sure he'll have his share of highlight reel plays this year but his numbers will probably be normal.

First, we need to be honest. We have a two guys who shared carries in both our preseason opener, one got 95 yards... we scored 24points the first night, 27points saturday...... bottom line, we didn't need ReggieBush.

But he was so close to breaking a big one on a couple of occasions tonight.... without a doubt, Reggie is going to make a lot of bad teams look really bad. And he is bound to break a big one against a good team.

if we are sitting around ready to make a bunch of noise everytime Reggie has a bad game(and being in a week NFC, there are more bad teams than not) what are we going to do when they come here, after Mario has a bad outing??

The fact is that Reggie can rush for 2000 yards, and add another 900 through the air...... as long as we are winning games, and scoring 27 points, how can anyone say we made a mistake??

Wow...... Rod Woodson just showed the play were Demarcus Ware yanked Bush off his feet with one hand, and gave Reggie his welcome to the NFL speech........

I'm impressed, haven't seen it on ESPN yet though.

By ESPN standards, Deuce McCallister had the most amazing night of them all. He only needed 2 carries to get 8 yards. Reggie needed 4 to get his 7.

Speaking of Dallas. How do you think they feel about the "ESPN Bush Love" after the game they had? And how long do you think it will before the whole league gets sick of it?

ESPN is setting your team up...


You have a point. I'm sure the Cowboys were sick of it (hence the planting of him by Ware). Its only going to get worse. If he can backup the hype on the field it will eventually get better, but ESPN is really taking away from what other players are doing.

It's understandable why you are here. It's been sooooo many years since the Saints have had a respectable team. So, you are surfing around on other teams forums to look for posters that "wanted" Reggie. It makes you feel good about your first team. I understand. But what you fail to realize is that not everybody wanted Reggie. And it is those fans that have deal with trolls and overly hyped press.

Not sure about everyone else. But I found your post in an older thread...

"Staints #1 team, Texans #2 team"

Now, if this is true. Don't mock the Texans now that you have the #2 pick fall in your lap. And don't get a laugh at other people being ridiculed by the media because they wanted Mario. Um kay?

Or else, we might just think you're a troll. Understand?

Now, the only time I'd expect you to root against the Texans is if we are playing the Staints. Otherwise, you should root for the Texans when they play everyone else. Am I wrong?

Well since you don't seem to know what's happening in the United States. Our major weakness last year was a hurricane named Katrina that ripped most of the roof off the SuperDome so we couldn't play any home games in our own stadium. we had to play all but one in San Antonio and that other one was in the new york Giants stadium.. and in the offseason we picked up a Q.B named Drew Brees and Drafted A guy by the name of REGGIE BUSH. and we also got a new coach. and of course other players.
Maybe if you learn how to read and also start watching sports on T.V other than Martha Stewart Living then you'll see what happened to New Orleans last year...:ok:

you see....... it isn't learning how to read that is the problem. it is comprehending what is being said. I asked you what your biggest weakness was on your team..... you told me about some weather phenom..... So me & the rest of the U.S. taxpayers are paying the tab to rebuild your stadium, and what do you do with your nickel.....

You replace your QB...... he's had a QB rating under 80 what Once?? in his career?? Avgs what 3300 yards a season which is sick when you consider he threw for 2100 last year... he holds every record for every stat ever held for a QB on your team...... he's the only QB to lead your team to a playoff appearance in the last decade, and the only one to win you one in the last two.

Then you go and put a $50 million down payment on a 200lb scat back who sits on the sideline when the team needs a yard. You already had to eat the contract you made with Ricky Williams, you are already paying Duece $50 million, and you already took out a million dollar insurance policy that you just sent to KC in exchange for another player you didn't need.

about these other players..... fujita?? three teams, in three years.... the Cowboys just dumped him after experimenting with him last year.... Payton knew it..... why did he bring him to your team?? Didn't you also get a new Center?? what's his name?? yeah, I can't remember it either........ do me a favor and look it up will ya?? How's that experiment with moving Jamal to LT?? other than being run over by an undersized DE(OLB in the 3-4), how's that working for ya??

heck, all that money in the backfield, and you can't get 20 yards between them. Throw in Brees, and another $50,000,000.00 and how many TDs have you got to show for it??

Lets try it again.... what was the weakest position on your team, and what did you do to take care of it.

08-22-2006, 01:10 AM
