So this evening I was watching the Cowgirls vs. Saints, and I kept finding myself rooting against Reggie Bush. I'll admit that every time he touched the ball, I was half-expecting him to burst through a hole, juke twice, and be gone down the sidelines. But it never happened. And instead of being relieved, I found myself depressed. We Texans fans are in a tough position. All of us are football lovers, else we wouldn't waste our countless hours each day reading these boards, checking NFL.com scores, watching games, etc. Yet here we are faced with a player of immeasureable talent, in the NFC, playing AGAINST the cowgirls, and I still want him to do poorly? Thats when it hit me: I'm wrong. Tonight, I realized, I like Reggie Bush. He has incredible talent. He's an incredibly disciplined worker. He doesn't want to be good or great, he wants to be the best. He gives it his all every time he touches the ball. He's likeable and charasmatic. He's fun to watch. He had a terrible game tonight, but even in that gain of 10 yards, he spun and juked, and worked for it. So why can't I like watching him? Why can't I cheer for him? All of the RB vs. MW comparisons, all the ESPN garbage analogies to MJ and Bowie, all of the Saints and NFL trolls that post how stupid we are have made me hope RB fails just to validate our move. But who cares? If we win games, and MW helps us do that, who cares how well RB does? From now on, I'm going to cheer for him and hope he suceeds, because I like watching great football players, and he has thepotential to be one. Maybe he'll bust, maybe he won't, but I'm going to hope that he won't because it would be good for the sport of football. Does this mean I don't like the MW choice? Nope. Does this mean I think we messed up? Nope. They aren't either or, and I hope people quit seeing it like that. During one of the game threads I mentioned as an aside that I thought both MW and RB were going to make impacts on their team, and I got a negative rep with the quote "who cares about reggie bush?" This teams fans have become poisoned against a pretty likeable, potentially awesome football player, and for all the wrong reasons. Even if you did it tonight, I hope none of you ever cheer for someone playing the Cowboys again, and I hope everyone can get over this validation of the MW pick. Why can't they both be awesome?
