"It's a story that has stayed under the radar despite the high profile of its subject. Jim Henderson of WWL-TV in New Orleans recently reported that Saints running back Reggie Bush, known in the Bayou as "Jesus in Cleats," would have been deactivated for last Sunday's game against the Falcons, if running back Aaron Stecker had been healthy. Per the report, Bush got on the wrong side of coach Sean Payton by missing a team meeting. It's easy for Payton to take the position that he would have punished Bush in this way if the guy who would have taken his place hadn't been injured. Would the rookie coach have really benched his prized rookie in a key NFC South game in late November? We don't think so. Even more amazing to us is the fact that no one has picked this up. It's not in any newspaper reports, and we can't even find it on the station's web site. In fact, we initially brushed off the e-mail we received about it, but then our friend John Marie of Biz Radio 990 in New Orleans advised us that WWL had indeed reported the story. Maybe the national media just missed this one. Or maybe the press outside of Louisiana has gotten over its crush on Bush. He hasn't performed like the reincarnation of Gale Sayers (if, you know, Sayers were actually dead), with a rushing average of 3.0 yards per attempt and only one touchdown from scrimmage through 11 NFL games."
