And we thought we had bad luck on the injury side...That pretty much ends most of their hope of doing any thing but drafting high. At least most of our key guys should be back in 3 weeks.

Their defense looks bad, their offense looks bad... I feel sorry for the Saints. No franchise has to deal with what they've had to, at least the Lions have had Barry Sanders(we've had 5 years of losing...compared to them...haha). Deuce may never be the same with how many injuries he's racking up on the legs. If Bush doesn't ever develop into a actual back now, they are going to have to find one at least for this season.

Its just so bad because the Saints could have said "Hey we have a an offense." and its not looking like it any more. The Oline was literally ate up...this looked like a bottom 5 team IMO.

Im currently working in Hahnville La which is about 15 miles from New Orleans, the people here turn on their team so fast its ridiculous. They are already back to calling them the aints. But they loooove LSU.

I was talking to a "saints fan" at work about this and he was not suprised. It makes me thankfull to be able to get mad about losses and upset about injuries. These people are so used to it they dont even care.

Damn, tough luck for Deuce. He was already getting jacked out of playing time by that ridiculous 'Reggie fever' his coach has, now he's done. That sucks.

Saints | McAllister tears ACL
Mon, 24 Sep 2007 21:56:08 -0700

ESPNews reports New Orleans Saints RB Deuce McAllister (ACL) suffered a torn ACL Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans. He will likely miss the rest of the 2007 season.

Who cares if he isnt a real running back, at least he'll still have 75 commercials on TV for doing absolutely nothing.

You want to know who has got to be the most pissed off about that? Maurice Jones Drew. He has be consistently over shadowed by Reggie Bush since college and never received the respect he deserved. While ESPN was having its man crush over Reggie doing nothing last year, Maurice Drew had better stats in almost every meaningful category.

IMO, the Saints problems began with Payton running Reggie Bust well before he established the run with Deuce. Now that Deuce is out, the woes will continue. Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall when the coaches finally come to the realization that they will always have to have a real RB around in order to set Reggie up to do anything? :)

That stinks! I like Duece's running style. Hopefully he heals and rehabs well in order to come back.

With the Saints now having to rely on Mr. end around-screen pass-slot-decoy guy, their season's shot. As if it already wasn't. :shades:

I think the media is waking up to what Bush is right now. Ineffective.

This is from Matt Mosely on ESPN.com

I know he scored two touchdowns, but when am I allowed to point out how overrated Reggie Bush is? We're led to believe that the Saints sit around dreaming up plays for a guy who can't run the ball effectively. I'm already sick of hearing how great he is at the second-level. Doesn't he have to get there at some point.

http://myespn.go.com/profile/hashmarks

This is from Peter King

If you watched the game, you know his poor play was a direct result of running for his life for three hours. Plus Reggie Bush (2007: 29 carries, 80 yards, 2.8 yards per carry) is simply not an impact player in the pro game -- so far.

Time for my boy Reggie to step up. Hopefully, the line learns to block this year from now on.

With him getting a lot more carries and catches now, I would except 2000 plus combined yards and 15 total TDs. Of course, if the line keeps sucking this bad, I could see Bush and Brees on IR before the season is over.

I would think it would be the opposite knee, since the new ACL should be stronger than the old one. When I got mine replaced, I was told that, but who knows.

how much crack did you smoke this morning? 2000 combined yards??? Are you serious? Really? You have to be baiting me. Nobody could be that voluntarily wrong. He carried the load last night...how many combined yards did he finish with?

remember last year when Bush's stats were pretty awful, but that's because "he's being used as a decoy. the offense is doing great because defenses are focusing on him."

now, his stats suck a lot, and the offense is doing poorly. why? "bush isn't looking so great because the offense around him is doing so bad."

blah blah blah. these excuses are insulting. but it's deserved for everyone putting him up so high to begin with.

fun trivia: Adrian Peterson has more 100 yard rushing games in his career than Reggie Bush.

no doubt. Peterson is a top 2-3 back in this league before next season is done. he has the best potential of anyone in the NFL right now to get a 2000-yard season.

Long time Saints fan here...no, it's the other knee. Losing Deuce is a huge blow, not only because we're losing a great player but a great man. He has done so much for the community and has always been a quiet, yet strong leader. His influence and talent will be missed. This injury hurts me more than any I can remember in a looooong time as a Saints fan.

I've always enjoyed this forum, and the level of hate for Bush is disappointing, in that it has taken over a thread about the end of the season, and perhaps a career, of one of the classiest players ever. I've always thought better of Texans fans than that. I know the media shoves Reggie down your throats, and the self proclaimed sports experts kept harping on the mistake the Texans supposedly made in last year's draft, but that's not Reggie's fault, just like being selected first wasn't Mario's "fault". My wish is that both Reggie and Mario are Pro-Bowlers for many years to come. I still think if the Texans made a mistake, it was passing on Vince, not Reggie. But drafting good defensive talent is never a mistake.

Is Reggie a superstar, or a bust? Honestly, it's too soon to tell. Same with Mario; he started well this season but it's too early to tell for him, either. Proclaiming Bush a star last year while saying Mario was a bust was premature, and saying Mario is a star while Bush is a bust now is just as premature. Ignore the media....they are the most fickle, inaccurate bunch of self proclaimed experts ever. Both players have handled their situations with class, IMO, and I wish them both great, long careers in the NFL. We had the pleasure of meeting Mario at the pre-sale of single game seats, and he was absolutely super with my kids. His picture with my kids is the wallpaper on my cell phone. :)

We had some local Houston Saints fans on our forum, getting irritated that Texans fans were "gloating" after week one since Mario did so well and Reggie didn't. My response was to get over it; that Texans fans earned the right to gloat, after the thrashing the media put on the Texans and the draft last year. But wishing injury on Reggie (which I read in another thread here)...yeeeesh. That was disappointing to read. He didn't start the hype, the media did. But of course, the media is usually the source of all that is evil...:D

Here's to a career year for both Mario and Reggie, to the continued improved play of the Texans (whoo-hooo!!!!), and the resurrection of the Saints (please!!!). And here's to a permanent case of laryngitis for many talking heads in the media....:doot:

Good luck on Sunday...of course I'm pulling for the Texans, my other team! :texflag:

I agree with you. I think some people want Bush to suck because the Texans didn't pick him and the national media second guessed the Texans so much. I just hope that Both Mario and Reggie do well in their career. They are just some good kids playing a fun game. It wasn't their fault with what happened in the 2006 draft.

Did you mean 2nd round or 2nd overall pick? If you actually ment second round, then you need to go have your head checked because you have had more concussions than Merril Hodge.

Right now I do not see anyone who could push him off of being the first overall pick.

WHAT? that dude is a certified beast. Fast, strong, agile, versatile & unlike RB, will be able to run between the tackles when he goes pro.

His numbers are great this year too, even against his opponents in the semi pro league that is the SEC.

I think he's better than Slaton, even though he's trying to be all mysterious about whether he's going to come out.

You never know. No one thought that JaMarcus Russell would be the #1 pick going into the season. With the way that ESPN and the rest of the media can hype people up, all you really need is one huge game in front of a national audience.
