Default My Public Apology to Eric Metcalf

I used to say that Reggie Bush would be the next Eric Metcalf, not the next Gayle Sayers. I now realize that was a huge insult to Eric Metcalf. Metcalf had a fine career and always made me nervous (as a Brown vs the Oilers) when he had the ball. The same cannot be said about Reggie Bush. As a running back I am now thinking Bush might be the next Jonathon Wells.

Default Re: My Public Apology to Eric Metcalf

I wouldn't do that to Wells, he could run between the tackles a little and fell forward.......I'm thinking of Tony Hollings......the guy was supposed to be a speedster that just sucked at every aspect in running the ball. Bush is a more durable Tony Hollings who was drafted #2 ovrl, so they have to keep him in the lineup.

Just wanted to point out that Reggie had another awesome day today:

9 for 32 yd rushing

and

3 for 30 receiving

for a grand total of 62 all purpose yards.

The only highlight I saw today of that game is Carr getting sacked while the broadcaster is saying that he is holding the ball too long.

The other team had to account for the threat Reggie may break the prettiest 2 yard gain you'll ever see. This is why they got blown out and is common football knowledge

so did you watch the entire game?

no? Because I did...

he did not play in much of the game and didn't get many touches because of the injury - it was a combined rushing effort between Bush, Stecker, and Thomas - Stecker looks to be the strongest runner of the 3.

I am far from a Reggie apologist and I've said on these boards plenty of times that I am very disappointed in his performance this season and lack of focus - on a dropped pass, Brees was very disappointed and mimicked the "catch it with your hands in front of you" motion to him.

And Payton and Brees were on him on the sidelines.

So his teammates see it. Most Saints fans I know see it. We are disappointed.

But this kind of post - dogging on an injured player is even low for these boards.

I remember when everyone got upset with Sports Illustrated listing Cadillac Williams as one of the most disappointing backs when he couldn't help his injury and the consensus seemed to be that if you are injured, then sub-par play shouldn't be held against you.

But that doesn't apply to Reggie?

There are a ton of performances you can dog him for - and we Saints fans are critical of him for - but today? He played through some substantial pain and had a couple of nice runs.

Does this speak to his durability?

I think so.

But I'm not gonna pile on a guy who suffered the same injury as Steve Smith and played through the pain.

that's not germane to my point

you can argue the merits of his inclusion on the list based on his performance prior to the injury - that's one thing....

that's not what I am talking about here

Plenty of people in that thread believed that to judge him prior to the injury is one thing, but the lack of performance due to the injury was something else

that's what I was trying to point out

Posters have plenty - and I mean PLENTY - of reasons, all justified, to dog Bush. And that's fine.

I've done it. Plenty of other Saints fans have done it. His teammates have done it.

But to pick out a performance when he's injured and still playing just seems sort of a callous reach is all....
