Oh, in no way am I saying that I would rather have Reggie than Mario, I'd have to be insane to say that. But Reggie would be the better running back in our system given his and Slaton's running styles.

Sorry, I'm just saying if Reggie was put into a system like ours he would have more success than Slaton. And there is no way you can argue that. I love Steve don't get me wrong, and I'm glad we took Mario over Reggie, but if Bush was put into this kind of system he could be an every down back and I think (just my opinion) he would be rather good.

I just hope that someone flattens Shockey like that team mate of his did two years ago on the Giants that gave him that concussion.

Yes that can be argued rather easily. Bush is a dancer which is not the best thing for ZBS.

Thats a pretty big assumption when you consider that Pierre Thomas can average a stout 4.8 yards per carry behind the same line that Reggie struggles behind. From what I have seen from Reggie he dances too much behind the los making him pretty much the anti zbs runner. He has all the tools but his running style wouldn't mesh as well in our system as Slaton's does.

Bush is afraid of contact, therefore he dances around. It is very hard to fix nerves or balls when he has neither of them. Oh and if it was so easily fixable why has not yet been fixed?

Bush's best moment ...

I've got a bad feeling that in this game our secondary concerns are going to be exposed badly. I really don't care who wins because it's only preseason but I think our secondary is going to get tore up by Drew Brees.

Ever since Bush took that incredible hit, he hasn't been the same. After that, I saw him heading for the sidelines a lot instead of turning it uphill and hesitating in the backfield.

You cant win a hypothetical arguement with the blind.

However if Kubes thought Reggie was all that he would be a Texan.

Reggies two greatest hits
1. Kim Kardashian
2. Sheldon Brown knocking him on his a**

I would disagree with that. Bush can be amazing in the open field but, IMHO, he lacks the heart to be a productive NFL RB. You have to be WILLING to take the hits. He wasn't at USC and he isn't in New Orleans.

Exactly. You don't have to look too far.............How many RB's have the Texans given up on because they wouldn't give up their Fred Astaire School of Dance technique??

Bush can suddenly run between the tackles?

Bolded the parts that are not very smart. I can easily argue that 10-12 games of Reggie Bush wouldn't be as dominant as 16 games of Slaton.

Where do you get the idea that Bush would flourish in the ZBS without seeing him play in it?
