I posted on another forum that Reggie Bush needs to get off my tv if he's gonna keep playing like he is and someone posted this:

"TRJ its two games in, he didnt score til 6 games in last season.. we saw how that ended up.. oh yeah, and keep that in mind for your texans too. Two games into the season and you havent lossed, ok, but week 5 youre going to be 2-3 whats your point?"

I love the people who think Reggie is jesus in cleats.

The funny thing is he didn't look good last year either. I seem to remember him scoring most of his TDs in one game and all of those were within the 5 yard line.

Bush will go down as the most overhyped player in NFL history. He is all over the TV as you said and has NOTHING to earn that.

BTW Bush, "you're welcome!"

yeah i know what you mean

At least Manning has earned his airtime. Sure, he's in a bazillion commercials and some of them are funny, but being the best QB in the game does that for you. What's Bush the best at? or even one of the best at?

but... in a way i feel for Bush because ESPN built him up to this huge "megastar" and now he's going to fall way short (although playing hardball with McNair when we were thinking about selecting him did nothing to earn his way into our hearts :bat: )

Just to clarify, Bush scored 4 TD's against the Niners and had no other game with multiple TD's. He rushed 10 times for 37 yards and 3 TD's with his longest run being a 10 yard TD. He caught 9 balls for 131 yards and a TD and his longest was a 74 yard catch & run.

The Saints won that game 34-10.

I have friends who aefans of other teams and they don't get why i rag on Bush so much. They raved about his ability as a decoy today. I was like....you mean... if your team drafted a decoy with the #2 pick of the draft you'd be happy?

I have nothing against the guy and i've said as much repeatedly. I just didn't like all the hype promoting him as the next big thing and lambasting us for not choosing him.

a lot of people use the argument that Bush is just a decoy for the reason his stats aren't that impressive. but, when his stats are awful AND the team does nothing on offense, then you can't even use the decoy argument, because he's failing at that, too.

Reggie Bush is nothing more than an undersized WR. He's a slightly larger Eric Metcalf.

Watching him on those commercials is starting to be comical. And then ESPN still puts him on their ultimate highlight, jumping over a guy for a 1 yard loss.

I think they were playing catch up though. That's what happens when you defense sucks and can't stop anyone from catching the ball.

Really had no intention of even mentioning Reggie the KR on this board anymore, but the national hype really is nauseating. I saw the "Ultimate Highlight" garbage today too, and it looked just like last year's ESPN glory-shots of his 25-yard sideways scampers that netted about 4.

I was an avid fan of Sirius NFL Radio during the past year, but now they've signed Reggie to an NFL analysis segment on "The Afternoon Blitz" (http://investor.sirius.com/ReleaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=259739&cat=&newsroom=) that is unlistenable because of its simpering praise for the kid.

Honestly, all the discussion about the national media attention for the Texans doesn't interest me, but I do hope that somebody out there in media-sheep land will eventually write an article titled: "Maybe he's NOT that good yet?" Judging by today's Don Banks column (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/don_banks/09/16/snap.judgments/index.html), they'll keep looking to excuse Saints' horrible start, at least for now.

All in good time. If he's the best thing since Sayers, great. No problem! But let's see him be the best RB on his own team first.

I think TJ said it best on the sportscenter wrap up..."you can't dance in the NFL". Bush still hasn't figured that out yet. I'll be honest and say I thought he would look better than he has this season. As the games go by, the Mario pick starts to look better and better.

yeah, but if you take your time & pound the ball more, let your offense get in rythm a little, eat clock & give your D a rest you might not fall so far behind so early & feel like you have to "shoot it out."

this is what Tenn. does to help out it's offense b/c it limits the oppositions possessions, gives your D rest & softens the oppositions D up/ sucks them in.

ironically, the best thing about not taking Bush is that we would probably still be stuck with Lil' Davey behind center if we had chose RB.

I think this is funny.

Mario Williams ---- 1 td ---- 2 sacks
Reggie Bush ------0 td -----0 sacks

Hey, dont talk about the most dynamic 3.15 yards a carry you'll ever see like that... How freakin lame is he. BTW your welcome you freakin mutt. However, it is a shame that the media made it to were we want him to fail. WHy couldnt they just leave it alone.

Yeah. I feel bad about wanting to be vindicated in our selection. There are very few players that I want to fail but I have to admit, as bad as it is, I want Bush and Young to stink it up just so people will shut up about them. Mario is a good kid. He doesn't deserve all the Sam Bowie comments that he's had to endure the past year.

While we're being honest, I'll confess that I thought David Carr was salvagable (at least, when we first signed Kubiak) and that we overpaid for Matt Schaub. At least it's fun to be wrong this time.

You guys know what the diff is between Mario and Reggie Bush? Mario will still be in the NFL 5 years from now. Mario is already making the impact in the first two games of this season that Smith and Kube said he would. Reggie and the Saints got LUCKY last year and have yet to win this season. We backed the right horse people. Mario! Mario! Mario!

I just got Sirius and I too and I have also been tuned into the NFL channel. They now have a segment called "The Bush Report". All I could do was shake my head. I don't recall the media trying to hype a guy so much even after he under performs as he has repeatedly. I just don't get it.

I'll admit I was wrong as well. When we passed on YKW, I thought it was a big mistake, and that we'd be looking for a QB 2 years from then.


Boy am I glad that Kubiak/McNair/Smith didn't let the $8million we put in that kids pocket force a bad decision, and turn a poor investment into an insanely stupid one.

And while I like YKW, I think our present QB is ready to take us as far as the rest of the team can go, and while he will go through some growing pains, we aren't sitting around waiting for him to develop.
