and he did it vs. a bad rams defense... its time to start making the reggie bush jerseys for sell at academy....and we gotta get the REG-GIE REG-GIE REG-GIE chant going...

Default I agree with Bigbull Dominc is just not a game changer.

He is a very good back. Very steady when he is healthy. He is just not a game changer. He does not break out for that home run when you need him too. The elite backs do that on a game to game basis. That's why Reggie Bush should be strongly considered. We see him do it all the time.

I'm not trying to take anything away from Bush, but he has had one of the best, if not the best o lines in college. Not to mention that if he was drafted, he would never get the most out of his talent. The team already has Davis, Wells and Morency, which mean the most time he would get is on special teams.

You do understand behind this line, he won't be getting 125 yards on 25 carries. I honestly don't think anyone can. Opposing defenses very rarely worry about our passing game. They don't have to. 8 men in the box. 9 men, in the box.....Reggie bush would have a hard time hitting homeruns game after game.

I'd like to have an explosive back like Reggie, but not at the expense of ruining him, and yet another loosing season.

Let's fix our problems first. We've got recievers, we've got RBs, we've got the only QB dumb enough to take the job......we need Cornerbacks, Linebackers, and Olinemen more than we need a RB. If we have to, we should trade down, for a lower first, and an extra second round pick, heck we can get a lower first, and a proven Offensive gaurd......

I'm not hating on Bush, but I'd think it would be pathetic to draft him. We have the most frequently sacked QB in the last 3 years running, so let's draft a tailback.

You know what all this Reggie Bush hype reminds me of? The hype surrounding JJ Arrington last season. The only back to run for 2000 yards in NCAA last year, fast, homerun hitter, blah blah blah.

Let's not put his bust in Canton just yet. (I actually had the line from Pulp Fiction - Harvey Keitel in mind, but it's slightly inappropriate )

I think DD is a very good running/all purpose back. He is a little injury prone, but if we trade him and gets behind a good O-line, we will regret it bigtime. When teams gameplan against us, he is the first person they want to stop. Of course he's 60% of our offense, and we are pretty good at stopping ourselves. We need a more balanced attack. I could see adding a quality back to split carries with DD. Hard to say if drafting a tailback is the best idea, or trading down for an extra pick. We have alot of problems to fix. We could really benefit from a great TE, but back to the O-line problems, our TE are needed to block. :brickwall

Someone needs to call up Edge with his 3 runs over 20 yds and 33 yd long on the season and tell him he isn't elite. Maybe do a conference call with Willis McGahee and his 4 runs over 20 yds and long of 27 and Clinton Portis with his 3 runs over 20 yds and long of 41.

He's prolly getting his first start this weekend, against a craptastic SF team he should do well.

I don't know why everyone seems to think that run blocking skills and pass blocking skills are the same. Our linemen are much better run blockers than pass blockers on balance.

Bush is one of the most exciting players in college football history, he is not compared to Arrington, if anything, I have heard comparing him to a faster marshall faulk or even gayle sayers.

Let me know when he carries the ball more than 20 times in a few games...then he might be considered worthy

Very true, but IMO there are not doing as well run blocking this year as they were the 2nd half of last year.

I'd much rather see him with 15 and maybe 5 receptions.
you mean bit like Westbrook at the Eagles, he has maybe 10 - 15 carries but can quite often get 6- 10 catches as well.

This might just be noticing this but the reason why we cant get a pass off is because our o-line doesnt give them enough time to do it. So then i think Why is DD not doing so good this year. Then i think is it really DD that is doing bad or is it our run blocking that needs the help. I have seen DD run when he get blocking and he runs brilliantly. Plus the Texans gave him that huge contract so i think the Texans dont think its him. I seriously doubt that we will ever see Reggie Bush as our RB. We make bad selections every year and if we draft Reggie Bush that will be a waist of money. We need OL too much to even consider a RB in the 1st round.

DD has so many rec yards because the middle of the field is wide open due to sacks and lack of TE.

There is absolutely no reason to cover the middle of the field vs the Texans.

Alexander had 30 odd carries for just over 100 yards against the Giants - as an average per rush attempt its about the same.
A lot of the reason that Alexander is successful is that O Line - Jones, Hutchinson, Tobeck, Gray and the young lad Locklear. Dont forget that he also has one of the best lead blockers in the game - Mack Strong at FB.

Now how do you think Alexander would do behind our O line?

Yes, Mancunian - more like how the Eagles intended on using Westbrook, with Buckhalter splitting carries.

For all the talk about how much like Faulk and Westbrook everyone thinks Bush might be, I personally think there's a much better chance his career ends up closer to Eric Metcalf or Dave Meggett. Both of those guys were very valuable players to their teams throughout their careers, but neither will ever get a sniff at the HOF. Meggett made the Pro Bowl twice and played in two Super Bowls and Metcalf made three Pro Bowls. Metcalf started his career as a RB, but was labeled a WR later. He did enough of both to totally confuse anyone who tried to figure out what he was . He finished with 630 rushing attempts and 541 receptions in his career. He did have one season with 1189 receiving yards.

JMO.

It is really sad what our fans are asking of them. We are asking David Carr just to get rid of the ball, but what about the completion? That is just an example BTW

Willis McGahee had 22 caries for 55 yds last week. The week before Stephen Jackson had 9 carries for 6 yds. About a month ago LT went into the 4th quarter with a negative yardage total against the Eagles on over 10 carries.

DD had over 130 total yds and people complain, go figure!!!:brickwall
