    Some of you are using my Texans Ticker Widget, well being half cajun lots of my family are die-hard Saints fans (they are my NFC team) so I made a Saints Ticker Widget as well. This was one of the articles in the feed.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-saints-bush&prov=ap&type=lgns

    Seeing as the whole Vince/Bush/Mario thing is starting to sort itself out, I thought this would make those who wished the Texans would have taken Bush feel better about the Texans not picking him.

    Seeing as how Mario played in the Saints game and the Titans game....the Texans are looking real good for the pick.

    Not trying to start anything, just passing the article along. :texflag:

    Great find, somehow I wonder if they have this in the Saints forum. Funny how no one showed the footage of him walking off before the game is over.

    This would seem an appropriate place to mention Bush's ridiculously poor lateral attempt.

    Where did he learn to pass the ball, Vince Young's Passing Academy.

    I think he is referring to the National championship game from 05, aka the Reggie Bush decoy play...I think...maybe????

    yep and people were making a stink about Bush being on the sidelines best player blah blah, but as we now see, he's not a "get a yard" back. He dances too much. I've seen him not get easy first downs cause he was dancing to try and get 10 yards instead of the yard he needed.

    Bush was on the sidelines because USC always used Lendale White in that situation. always.

    not starting something? by posting the billionth Bush thread on the boards? Somehow I find that hard to believe...

    LOTS of Saints fans are saying the same things.

    This was linked on the saints boards - courtesy of Jim Henderson, longtime play by play broadcaster for the Saints:

    http://www.wwltv.com/sports/stories/wwl120307tphenderson.647c3a3a.html

    from the article:

    and if you check out the saints boards, you will see threads entitled - just from the first two pages alone and looking only at subject lines, not counting posts in plenty of threads that don't have "BUSH" in the subject title

    Bush = Bust

    I won't use the word BUST, but....

    How about Bush at WR full time?

    Never been a Bush Basher, but...

    Reggie Bush the Player, Reggie Bush the Man

    Reggie is a great talent. Reggie is one of the best athletes I have ever seen....but..

    reggie bush/kim kardashian

    Sophomore Slump (Reggie and Coach Payton)

    And so on....

    So for those of you who keep categorizing Saints fans as being delusional for thinking Reggie Bush is the second coming and an All-Pro or even a full time RB - the fact is that the majority of Saints fans on the boards have grown increasingly critical.

    I miss Deuce. More than I ever thought I would...

    I honestly wasn't trying. I thought people would just read the article and take it for what it is. I'm surprised at how popular the thread is. Yes it appears on the surface to be just another Bush thread, but this one is different. Bush is NOT being lauded as the next Gayle Sayers now. You say lots of Saints fans are saying the same things, but you have to remember all the months of "your team is stupid for passing on Reggie and Vince" that we Texans fans had to endure. From my Thibodaux, La based family as well....ha ha

    This article is only one example pointing out what a lot of Saints fans are starting to realize, but do you see it on NFL.com or ESPN? I haven't found it. If Reggie had run all over the Texans, we would have heard nothing but grief for passing on him. As it turned out, Mario won the battle this time. I think the media is starting to give him some credit now though.

    I grew up an Oiler and Saints fan, I'm now a Texans and Saints fan. So I have watched both teams quite a bit, and being a Saints fan I want Reggie to do well, but as you pointed out, Deuce helped Reggie more than Reggie helped Deuce it appears.
