"Reggie Bush spiced things up with a nine-yard run and an 11-yard gain on a third-and-2 screen, both on the final drive of the first half. He finished with seven yards on four carries, 14 yards on two receptions -- and disappointment that the starters didn't do better."

did they run him in the middle at all?

Most of the time the first guy to touch him started him to stumbling and he went down after a few more yards. But he is going to have to start breaking the arm tackles or he is just a higher paid Terry Metcalf Jr.

Also the ESPN highlight where they are gushing about his vision showed another flaw in his NFL game. Reggie is looking down the field a few levels and forgets people he is by, in the NFL they can catch him, and the about broke him half in his 9 yard carry, a catch I think.

Reggie will be good but he will not be Barry Sanders. He is just not tough enough, he will not go in the middle for the tough yard. Speed does not last and is not as pronounced as in college.

About the only play I saw was just before the half. He caught a quick out pass, and was in the open field for a bout a second and a half. DeMarcus Ware (former 4-3 D/E turned outside LB in 3-4) ran him down and tackled him with a swipe of the arm. So no, he did break any tackles that I saw.

the closest thing he came to breaking a tackle was tripping over a very weak arm tackle, and gaining 3 yards falling forward (great blocking on the sweep, should've been 15+ yards).

they ran him up the middle every other time .... 9 yards on that sweep, -2 total for the rest.

couldnt bounce out, ware picked him up and he wasnt decisive finding a hole initially. welcome to the NFL, where everybody's faster than you are.

his best play came off of a very well executed screen. his one actual reception turned into demarcus ware wearing the pants in that relationship.

the quiet majority didnt want bush, and it'll quickly become obvious why.

Since its ok to jump the gun in preseason and start making assumptions off players careers in just two preseason games, Reggie Bush is going to make a great PR. His offensive skills would best suit The Eagles offensive scheme with Andy Reid style.

Where'd you get the coconuts?
ARTHUR:
We found them.

Found them? In Mercia? The coconut's tropical!

Well, this is a temperate zone.
ARTHUR:
The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the plover may seek warmer climes in winter, yet these are not strangers to our land?
SOLDIER #1:
Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?
ARTHUR:
Not at all. They could be carried.
SOLDIER #1:
What? A swallow carrying a coconut?
ARTHUR:
It could grip it by the husk!
SOLDIER #1:
It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.
ARTHUR:
Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here?

Listen. In order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right?
ARTHUR:
Please!
SOLDIER #1:
Am I right?
ARTHUR:
I'm not interested!
SOLDIER #2:
It could be carried by an African swallow!
SOLDIER #1:
Oh, yeah, an African swallow maybe, but not a European swallow. That's my point.
SOLDIER #2:
Oh, yeah, I agree with that.
ARTHUR:
Will you ask your master if he wants to join my court at Camelot?!
SOLDIER #1:
But then of course a-- African swallows are non-migratory.
SOLDIER #2:
Oh, yeah.

So, they couldn't bring a coconut back anyway.

Rhetorical question probably but I'll say anyway that it's just a natural defensive/aggressive reaction. After one game RB was the next coming of Christ - and after a 4 rushes for 7 yards outing last night, apparently still is -- while Mario is Sam Bowie.

Anyone recall stats from HS or colelge? Ignore the arguments that are plus or minus three sigma

to put it simply, he tried juking and dancing and cutting across field, and the end result is the 4 carries, 7 yards. DeMarcus Ware was made him look silly when Bush tried to juke, he'd just grab him and throw him down.

White's game more conducive to NFL success than Bush's
August 22, 2006

Look, I'm not saying I told you so, but -- OK, I'll let DeMarcus Ware do it.

There was this moment in last night's Cowboys-Saints preseason game when Reggie Bush took a handoff and tried to use his speed to beat the pursuit to the corner. Not surprisingly, Ware, the Cowboys' 270-pound DE/LB, strung the play laterally and pounced on Bush for no gain. He then hovered over him shaking head, as if to say what I said a couple months ago -- this isn't college ball, kid.

All of you who emailed and said I was an idiot for saying LenDale White will be a better pro than Bush (if White gets his Del Taco-eating butt in shape) -- and you know who you are -- please see video of last night's game. Bush: four carries, seven yards.

The NFL is a between-the-tackles league. Guys who can gut it out and pound away at defenses (White) will succeed. Guys who are outside the tackle runners are third-down specialists and return men. And that's fine; there's a place in the NFL for those type players.

In college football, Bush was faster than anyone on the field -- except during the Texas game. The Longhorns defense had (and still does have) fabulous lateral speed. Is there any wonder, then, that White had the better game in the Rose Bowl?

And now that we're at the elite level, White will again be the more productive player -- if he can stay in shape. Bush will be a fun player to watch in the league, but he has to get bigger and more physical to be an every-down back.

And then, I heard the unthinkable: the three doofuses in the television booth were debating if the Texans would be the Portland Trailblazers of the NFL by passing on Bush in the draft. The Trailblazers, of course, passed on some guy named Jordan. Merely the best athlete of our time.

So now it has come to this: we're comparing a third-down specialist to the best team sport athlete in the history of the planet. I've said it a hundred times and I'll say it again: If God himself came down and played Jordan in a game of 21, I'd take Mike and lay the points.

Bush, meanwhile, is battling to stay ahead of a kid who can't drive by a Del Taco without throwing down a few value meals.

Because Reggie was supposedly the best RB to ever come out of college and was hyped to no end. Doesn't look like it so far.

Mario wasn't hyped to no end like Reggie Bush and he was actually called overrated in the NFL Draft by Jets fans.

Very simple.

He may not have played much yet, but from the Rose Bowl, you can see LenDale as the power runner. If he gets a little bigger and adds more muscle than fat, he can be a good power back in the NFL running through tackles. Instead of taking tap lessons outside like Reggie Bush. I don't know how good LenDale will be, we will have to wait and see.

Right. But at the same time, neither is Mario or VY.....Every player coming in from college will have to get better/change something about their game...Mario: Cant bull rush everyone; Bush: can't always reverse field; VY: rely on his legs less...none of them are beast....(yet)

I can understand that...but the draft is over, he's not on our team...lets wish him luck(or not) and move on....and on another note...Mario was hyped up to be the next Julius pepper/bruce Smith/ Reggie White by some and he hasn't played up to those standards either...my point is that both players were hyped, though Bush more than eveyone else, but not one of the top three have performed like world beaters...

The guy acts as if Bush had a horrible game against Texas. Sure, he wasn't going off like he did against Fresno State, but he didn't do too terribly in the Rose Bowl:

13 rushes, 82 yards
6 catches, 95 yards

That's 19 touches for 177 yards, an average of 9.3 yards a touch.

Not too shabby against a team where he wasn't faster than the defense, as the article suggests.

You think you're a homer? Wow. Look up the definition sometime.
Your GOD is a bust. Terrible against Dallas last night. If you judge Mario after two games, you should do the same to Bush.
And if you're annoyed after two weeks, you ain't watching the same games I am. Mario takes on two blockers so Peek can get sacks. Mario takes on two blockers and still bats down a pass. Mario tackles behind the line which is just as good as a sack.

Bush is going to be fine, every dog has his day, and he did not hardly touch the ball, given 20 carries not telling what he might do. I do think the guy is going to have his lunch ate if he burns to the edge every run. He needs to progress through his lane and then turn on the afterburn. Give the guy a break he can not play great every game. L-White did look good, and given more time he is going to be a great RB, or at least I hope so. I would also like to say that they are both playing for weak teams, N.O. sucks and Tenn is even worse. Heck, Vince has three dropped passes every game that is so weak. Mario is the lucky one, the Texans look much better against there opposition so far. I wish people would just let it go. Everyone should be happy, I am.

Part of the issue with folks and Bush is all the hype before and after the draft and the denigration of/towards Mario, but I suspect most of the hostility towards him is that at every chance ESPN and most of the media do a "Hey McFly what were you thinking" slap to the back of the collective Texans nation every chance they get, and lots of folks don't seem to take real kindly to that.

Based on 2 preseason games so far, Mario was the better pick.

I know a lot of people are saying that they hope all the best for Bush. And that's all nice and everything and you're not supposed to wish ill on anyone and all that...

But after everything that's been said about Mario and the Texans... to be totally and completely honest... I am hoping that Bush falls flat on his face. That may be evil or whatever but that's the truth.

Hey don't be so harsh. You should wish him all the best when he is playing anyone but us in the AFC South at least :) Go Texans!

A little hard to compare these two players, Mario a DE, and Reggie RB... I could see if it was two RB's or two DE's........they will never compare, this year's draft will always be a debate unit unfortunatley one of these players get hurt or in trouble with the law, only then will ESPN will come out and say which team had the best draft, which is very sad.........

Yeah then its right in your face obvious like Ryan Leaf / Payton Manning. I wonder who got the better QB out of that draft. *Grin*

what do you mean it is hard to compare.

I'll make it easy for you:
Michael Jordan is better than Mike Tyson
Tiger Woods can beat Joe Montana
Babe Ruth and Pele are about even
Lance Armstrong destroys Randy "the Macho Man" Savage
Dale Earnhart over Brian Boitano (barely)

now that wasn't so complicated was it.

I would like all these threads in this thread so I can ignore them easily. :homer:

If I'm already annoyed in week 2 of the pre-season, we're in for a loooong season.
Mario got doubleteamed and batted down a pass, Reggie (not even close to god) got 7 yards on 4 carries 1.75 avg..hardly worth making him a supreme being:pigfly:

Ok once and for all mexican_texan does not have the opinion that Mario Williams is a bust or that Reggie Bush is a god. This threads purpose is essentially the same as a message board toilet.

peace out.

HAHAHA! I wonder where are the AINTS trolls now! I'm simply tired of all the hatin' of our guy, Super Mario! Remember, it takes time for many DEs & DTs to produce! And I thought he had a nice game!:redtowel:

I told you guys in April that Mario would be a disappointment. He stands up out of his stance too often and only stat pads against horrible tackles. Granted, two preseason games don't mean a lot, but has the guy even sniffed the quarterback yet? I saw most of his games at State and his performance doesn't come anywhere close to his talent level.

Well, yeah. In the last game, he forced two fouls where they had to hold him (there was at least 2 other holds they didn't call), he's had one tackle for a loss, he's knocked down a ball, he has crunched the line in places and freed up other rushers.

So far, I'm not disappointed at all.

well the stands in the stance is no biggy, that is coachable.

as far as padding stats, hey it is a four man deal up there against 5 guys, if mario draws a double team, that means weaver,tj,payne,babin arent' on the double team, if one of them is causing havok and demand a double team, then mario get freed one on one.. a potentially beautiful thing.

We have seven sacks in two games. After last year, you can't tell me that Mario hasn't got something to do with that.

And how did your expensive part time player do? He can't even run btw the tackles, hahahahahahahah! He's only good if he gets outside! I'm sure other team has seen the Cowboys game!:crying: :shoot: Just string 'em along!

Of Williams/Bush/Young who has lived up to their potential the most after 2 pre-season games? (Man typing "2 pre-season games" felt weird.)

No offense, but when it comes to sacks FOR us, I have to correct you. We have 8 sacks.:redtowel:

Wow. Just re-read mexican-texan's first post.
I took it the WRONG way.
I'm now with him all the way.
All you who think Mario is a bust after two practice games, please post in this thread!

... and Reggie White got ALL his sacks against All-Pros, right? Wrong.
All the greats have a few games with huge numbers against bad teams.

and he sniffed a QB when he tackled the RB in the backfield, which is as good as a sack.

I still don't agree with using return yards as a way of saying someone had over 100 yards in a game.

OK by your logic, he's a receiver. Um, last I checked, other than Johnson, the Texans receivers pretty much blow. No way they could use a guy with great hands and speed when they have 48 year old Moulds and a bunch of no-names like Derrick Lewis who used to sing the national anthem at Saints games- that is when he wasn't stuck on the practice squad.

6 TDs > 4.5 sacks (at least two of which were no better than leaning over and touching the QB).
