    Is Pittsburgh's Willie parker have the same speed that Reggie Bush has? I realize that parker doesnt line up as a WR, but are they near each other in speed?

    I'm sure that in a straight line Willie can hang with Reggie Bush, he does have 4.3 speed. What makes Bush positively ridiculous is that he can change his direction without hardly losing any speed, and if he does slow down, he can get back to full speed and still outrun pursuers. So as far as football speed is concerned, Bush has that in spades...

    Houston, again.
    I think Willie is FAIRLY close to Bush is straightline speed, but not near as elusive. Bush would probably wind up in the top 5 fastest guys in the NFL in a speed run which makes for a REAL fast RB as most of the speed guys are WRs and some DBs.
