Hopefully, though, our pick will prove that it was the worthwhile choice by stuffing the run and keeping Bush in check at the line of scrimmage.
And he did. He showed us how to fumble the ball twice, rush for an average of 2.26 ypc, and catch balls at a 5.83 ypc. He really showed us today!

In Reggie's defense, he fumbled twice as much as the amount of fumbles that Mario forced. Take this stat as you will.

I saw a couple of times where CC Brown handled Bush pretty easily . CC Brown mind you knocked him backwards ... that's all the Bush I needed to see .

I also like the way Reggie went fetal on the Saints last drive instead of trying to do something to get out of bounds.

I'm getting tired of hearing about Reggie's "catches or total yards". Thats just a cop out by the media.....the guy was drafted to be a running back first and foremost and he sucks at that.

All those catches that he gets are just a sad attempt of his team trying to get him "out in space", because the guy "CAN'T GET BY THE FRONT SEVEN AND INTO SPACE" on his own....it's like in basketball where McGrady has to set up Chuck Hayes for all his layups, because the guy can't create on his own.

Everytime I look at all these receptions Bush has that everybody brags about and says......"yeah but"..reggie had "total yards". Those total yards and receptions are receptions taken away from real WR's that could do so much more with 12 receptions (his longest catch was just 11 yards)......Reggie Bush is a crappy running back and okay receiver....I'd rather have 12 catches go to a guy that's not a running back.

NO spends so much time trying to force feed Bush the ball to somehow justify his draft position and prove he's not a bust that he ends up disrupting the entire flow of their offense.

Note to NOLA........Reggie Bush sucks

Note to ESPN.......Reggie Bush Sucks

Note to whoever the hell was behind that Madden comercial........Reggie Bush sucks.

Now all three parties above.......shut your pie hole about the 2006 draft, because Reggie Bush sucks and Vince Young isn't too far behind.

to be fair to Bush, there's nothing wrong with showing a player's total stats. he does do more than just run the ball. but that's always going to be secondary to what a RB does as a runner, period. when people bring up total yards for other RB's, it's always as a footnote to how well they're also running the ball.

They have to throw him the ball to justify him being on the field.....if the guy could do his job and run the ball, he'd have more carries, more rushing yards, and less receptions.

The Saints just need to bite the bullet and make him a slot receiver, but then again, I guess it's hard to justify paying a slot receiver 60 mil.

Like it or not, his catches also count toward his yardage, and that seems to be about half of his touches.

Those catches that he gets are pretty much running plays, as I was saying in the gameday thread. I don't know that those throws to him are an attempt to prove that he is not a bust, but when something (running the ball traditionally) doesn't work, you go to something else to get your running yards. Those swing and short passes to Reggie are how they substitute those yards and I don't blame them. It seems like their best way to substitute a running game to me too.

I'm not making an excuse for him but posts like this just make me think that even though there are plenty of ways to rag on Reggie, people don't seem to be understanding them, or want him to suck in EVERY way, just to say that he wasn't worth the pick. I think that he was not worth the #1 is obvious by now anyway.

Saying Reggie Bush sucks is taking it a bit too far IMO. He is obviously not an NFL RB, but I am not so sure he is a sucky football player. I think you'd be hard pressed to find anyone that knows football, and has no problem with Reggie Bush say that he sucks.
