Will there be any snarky "Dear New Orleans, thank you for sending me to the Dolphins..." commercials?

Whoever decided those post-draft VY and RB "Dear Houston...." commercials was a good idea, well that person was a moron.

What's up with Heisman-winning Saints RBs from San Diego getting dealt to Miami? Hah.

Dude, now we will have to prepare for this guy in one of 4 hard games to begin the season.

Another X-USC guy that former Trojans coach Carrol in Seattle apparently had no interest in adding to his roster ?

The Saints are on the schedule as well so I'm not sure I see the difference. :kitten:

I always figured VY would end up in Miami.

He could very well still end up there once released.

Only interesting question surrounding Bush...

Has he returned the trophy, yet???

That's a good spot for Bush, they use their runningbacks creatively. He should fit right in.

When did Bush become a running back?

And, according to NFLN, part of the deal was an agreement by the Dolphins that he is "the man." They're not trading to get another RB as their workhorse.

Will they re-sign Brown?

No. They said they're letting Brown and Williams walk. And Reggie becomes the #1 guy and the every down back.

Just be happy he isn't going to the Colts. I know they mentioned that on Mike&Mike. That would have been really bad for the Texans....

Yeah. In Manning's hands, Bush would have been a freaking weapon.

I expected him to go to Philly and the Eagles to make him the new Westbrook.

Dolphins acquired Reggie Bush from the Saints for an undisclosed late-round draft pick.

Bush gets a new two-year, $10 million deal to be the Dolphins' scat back and complement for rookie Daniel Thomas. While Bush won't suddenly turn into an early-down back in Miami, he does figure to see more rushing attempts than he got over the last couple of years in New Orleans' situational scheme. S till, Bush's name is worth way more than his fantasy game, even in PPR circles. Thomas is the unquestioned feature back and will push for 250 carries.

Ah, interesting.

NFLN did say that it would be Bush and Thomas but they made it sound like Bush would be getting the biggest part of those carries. If Thomas is the feature back getting 250 carries, that's 50-100 carries for Bush and not what NFLN had said.

Yeah, I dont know. Mortensen said Bush wanted just(or at least) 15 touches a game. Maybe he'll get an increased role in Miami from what he had in New Orleans. Then again, maybe not.

Why couldn't one of my teams (Cowboys, Texans) bring in my boy Reggie?:foottap:

Could be a good fit in Miami

FAIL :fingergun:

1. You root for Dallas.

2. You STILL root for Reggie Bush after he publicly insulted the Texans with those stupid commercials.

3. You still think that slot receiver is a good RB.

4. You want to bring Reggie to Houston and screw up our cap space for a slot receiver when we are trying to do something about the secondary.

5. I'm glad he got traded for a LATE round pick, and I'm going to laugh when he gets flat out cut.

6. Our UDFA RB that we already have is FAR better than that wannabe-1st-overall-pick anyway.

Do I have to explain? There's only one team in my house. That's the way it's always been. I could never see myself rooting on another team and caring for them as much as The Texans. Been that way since I was an Oiler.

I love the Dallas Cowboys, how is that a conflict?

Most of the time they help each other out.

The only time I have to choose is when they play each other, preferably in the Super Bowl!
