Bush stepped up after the two fumbles...the one was partially due to the facemask that was missed but the second one was just a fumble. he screwed up and what did he do? he stepped up and made up for it and was pretty classy while doing so.

Well I guess you have to do something to make up for a bad running game....a decent game for a WR. I'll be honest he's not a terrible player but nothing worth spending a top 5 pick on.

He's a WR (not a RB)........in any other system the coach would've already made the switch by now, but when you watch Sean Payton it seems he doesn't like to run the ball anyway (seriously he passes on almost every damn down, Duece is healthy again and he won't even run him) so why not just have another WR line up in your backfield. The truth is, Reggie went to the perfect system and only one of the few systems that will allow him to save face as a somewhat respectable player. In most systems Reggie is just a less explosive Devin Hester......not much else.

I'd take him on the Texans in a second. The team could use a play maker whatever position he's in.

So he could sit behind Slaton.......what you need to ask yourself is why Kubiak won't pull his head out of his ass and let Slaton return kicks (he needs to give Slaton as many touches as he can) instead of that overrated dumbass that goes by the name of Jacoby Jones. (the guy hasn't made a play in over a year and shouldn't have even made the damn team......but Kubiak and Smith are trying to save face for the third they wasted on him)

Slaton could've easily returned that punt as well.....horrible punt coverage + excellent blocking = skate to the endzone untouched.

He and Steve Slaton are basically the same player (Kubes probably uses the plays he had installed for Bush before the draft) but Bush has more raw talent.

It amazing what you can do with zone blocking holes instead of a bunch of draws.

Default Re: Reggie! Reggie! Reggie!

If he was a Texan I think the fans would figure out he's too good to "sit behind Slaton" - play them both. He's a play maker that can break big gains from multiple positions. I guess some people don't think the Texans could use that.

By the way, search the archives. I was a "draft Mario" guy. I just don't let some petty who's better arguments cloud my vision when I see NFL talent.

Tony Kornheiser is such a douchebag!!!

"What more could Reggie Bush have done to help the Saints win this game?"

Well Tony MAYBE if he didn't lose 2 FUMBLES that would've helped the Saints win the game?

Barry Sayers seems to be carving out a niche as a fine PR however, i'll give him that.

I am so tired of the Reggie/Mario talk who cares anymore we arent winning either way. Yes that is true Slaton is a lot like Bush in that they are both 3rd down backs but Apple is right in that ZBS allows someone like Slaton to be the starting back in that kind of system.

Why in the hell was NO throwing at the end of the game? (before the 2 min warning, not the last hail mary) Bad playcalling cost them that game, IMO. 2 run plays on 2nd and 3rd down would got the Kicker closer and chewed up the clock. they probably would have won, at the worst been in OT.

Slaton doesn't dance behind the line like Reggie either. Also, Reggie has had a fumbling problem his whole career as a pro. Hopefully Slaton doesn't mirror him in that regard. People compare the two because of their perceived roles in their respective offenses but Slaton is quickly separating himself because he is proving to be a legitimate feature back while Bush is proving to be a legitimate PR.

Wasn't turning this into a Mario/Bush debate. I'm a Reggie man thru-n-thru but Mario was the right pick for the Texans.

I just don't get the hate on Reggie when Slaton is basically a toned down Bush in the perfect system.

I guess I'm just a fan of that kind of RB. After the 2006 draft I was calling for the Texans to snag Slaton. Glad they did
