    B.S.

    With all his commercial hype and publicly aired 'hurt feelings', I think he's downplaying the chip on his shoulder. His ego wanted the status of being the first overall pick, and he has something to prove to Houston if he wants to admit it or not.

    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.

    This is Mario's chance. After all of the sh!t he's heard over the past two years about how much he sucks compared to Reggie, he can show the world that he was in fact the correct pick.

    Now, I know if he had been consistently played well this wouldn't even be an issue, but hopefully he can use this game as extra motivation to bring his game to a different level.

    I'd have to agree but, with a Texans point of view!

    I just want a win and for the Saint's to go marching home! Tail between the leg's, of course!:fans:

    Bush is right, he doesn't need to prove to the Texans that he was worth the #1 pick...........he still needs to prove to the league and other backs, that he's better than most of the other runningbacks that were drafted behind him and in lower rounds first.

    I mean, Bush has already proven he wasn't worth the #1 pick or the #2 pick for that matter.......really the top 3 players in that draft are starting to prove that they weren't worth their draft position.

    There is a reason why the NFL scheduled this game, after all.

    This game was scheduled before Reggie or Mario was drafted.

    Bush has a lot to prove to not just the Texans - but the entire NFL and - most importantly - to us Saints fans.

    Williams should have a big day playing opposite Strief.

    I want Bush to take his sorry ass back to N.O. with another loss. That's all.

    Well...from what I have seen today, Bush is right:

    He has NOTHING....to prove.

    Let's make it a little more fair, and a little more realistic. Don't know if that helps or hurts Bush considering he is suppose to be a better receiver than runner.

    EDIT-Bush: 15 carries 34 yards, 8 catches 40 yards 2 fumbles
    Dayne Train: 15 carries 54 yards, 3 catches 26 yards.

    Dayne still has more yards per touch than Reggie. :shades:

    Agreed.

    NO really going to Bush this drive. 4 straight plays to him now.

    Dayne had more rushing yards today than Bush had total yards.

    I guess we should update to:

    BUSH

    15 carries 34 yards 2 fumbles on the ground.

    12 catches 70 yards as a receiver.

    That's 27 touches for 104 yards 3.85 yards per touch.

    tough day for him

    too Bad DD's (DW) career ended too soon, even though I was harsh on DD when he was playing, he easily could have matched those numbers and without the high price tag..without the T.O.

    Bush will never live up to his hype. vince Young might, and so might Mario.

    But Bush will not live up to the hype.
