Default Bush Showed a ton

2 Attempts from inside the 2...Good thing they didn't need a TD.

He or Mario have not really shown to have been deserving of the #1 pick.

Deuce was clearly the better option on that series of plays, and I saw Payton calling Deuce back to the sidelines after the first failed attempt. My guess is he was hoping to get Bush his first TD in the spotlight and probably would have taken him out if they didn't have a 17 point lead with the Falcons playing so bad on offense.

Deuce definitely would have gotten in. I guess in the end it didn't really matter though. I also noticed Bush was too busy pouting and almost didn't get off the field fast enough for the field goal.

Reggie Bush did fine.. Anytime you ammass a total of 73 yards while being a backup is impressive by itself. Especially considering it's his third game of action, against a Falcon front-seven triple the talent of any opponent he played his junior season. Do you honestly expect the guy to gain over 100 yards while being paired with another perrenial running back like Deuce McAllister?

I know you guys have heard it over and over from ESPN, but the mistake was huge. Reggie Bush single handedly ignited a city and organization together with enthusiasm. The situation Reggie was thrown into (playing alongside Deuce) couldn't have been more perfect for his development. While on the other hand, you shouldn't expect much from a first year DE in a 4-3, double covered each play.

And every good running back ALWAYS punches it in from inside the 2. I mean I can't recall a time when Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, or Barry Sanders didn't get stuffed on the 2 yard line!

He's showed a lot more than Mario has thus far though. Early analysis goes like this.

Lesson 4: Know when you are staring at a rare football player with leadership. Notice I didn't say rare athlete, because even though Reggie Bush is a great athlete, he is first a rare football player. For a kid born three years after Morten Andersen kicked his first NFL field goal in New Orleans, he has the shoulders to take on the responsibility great players must take on. It wasn't hype when he was described last spring as a once-in-a-decade player.

Every play ? I see a few TEs getting there licks in on Mario. Sometimes solo. I'm not ready to declare Mario a bust. I am how ever disappointed in his overall lack of improvement in his technique. His hand play is just aweful. He has no punch at all at the snap. Mind goggeling. They have people fighting for the chance to block the guy he's so soft. The pillsbury dough boy has more pop in his game than Mario at this point. He's a big 295 pound pillow looking for a body to absorb. Just yery disappointing.

And you're paying the king of the swamp How much for those numbers ? lol. Suck-aaaaars. Bush has shown so far that 201 is still 201 in the nfl. He's not good enough yet to clean the toe jam outta of Eric Metcalf's toe nails. Much Less Gayle Sayers.

I think some forget that the Saints have 3 pro bowlers on offense. Not saying that Bush has played poorly but he for sure hasn't done anything spectacular, and certainly nothing worth 50 million bucks.

Bush looks like he will be a good RB. He also has the versatility to play WR, which is a big bonus, plus he's fun to watch. On the other hand, I don't see him as a once in a decade player. I thought Deuce was far more impressive as a runner last night, so I'm really not viewing our passing up Reggie as the colossal mistake the media is portraying it as. As has been proven over and over in the NFL, you don't need a top 5 pick to draft a great runner, so I'm looking for us to find ourselves a good runner next off-season. If Mario turns out to be a bust long-term then I'd obviously have wanted us to have gone in a different direction with that pick, but I'm not stuck on Reggie. I don't see him becoming as influential of a player as many others do.

Duece was much more impressive as a runningback..... no doubt........ Colston much more impressive as a reciever..... but the defense was keying on Reggie?? Yeah right.

They didn't even consider JoeHorn out there.

Are you blind? Nobody here has said Mario is playing like the #1 pick. Sometimes I wonder if you guys even read posts or if you're just here to spew anti-playerX garbage in every thread you stumble in to.

Id rather of had D Brick, but with all the hype Bush has been a bust. I expected much more and considering we've lost by like 3 TDs a game and he cant get in the end zone, he would not have helped much here.
