I'll give you two.

Dave Meggett & Eric Metcalfe.

Bush isn't as good as either of them.

I think you do need to seek help. A kid that worships Vick, but despises Bush has to be a little misguided to say the least.

Randy Moss was used as a decoy in Minnesota if I rememberr correctly. He was hurt, but they still lined him up and made the defense think he was going to be playing

Yea, but once they are done being decoys, they return to their native position. Where does Reggie go when they don't need a decoy? The bench.

This changes, though, with Deuce being gone for the season. Bush will have huge shoes to fill..... Deuce did all of the work last year, and Reggie was just used to push the football into pay dirt and get the Saints on ESPN.

It's time for him to pay the piper. Or the Defensive Tackles. Whoever is closer, really.

I still think Reggie is a good football player. He obviously isn't unstoppable and has some concerning flaws to his game, but nevertheless, I still think the guy can be an impact player on this level.

LT has looked pretty pedestrian up to this point as well. Not comparing LT to Reggie, just noting that a running back's actual talent may not always correlate with their prodution--for various reasons.

Yes, Payton has already said Reggie will see more touches. Stecker is no Deuce, and will be used less than Deuce was. I agree with TexansLucky13, it's time for Reggie to prove himself or the bust label will start to really stick.
