As a Texan fan. Here's what I fear will happen at the start of the NFL season... The first week of the NFL. Reggie Bush will make one or two great runs in his first game. And this alone will make the Texans look like NFL-DRAFT-FOOLS! And every "great" run (more than 10 yards) will solidify in the minds of NFL fans everywhere that Reggie Bush is the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ. And even if the Saints lose each game it wont matter. Because people will be only looking at the one or two ESPN-highlight runs and blowing them out of proportion. All it takes is one or two great runs. That's it. This is how flash works. Each and every great run that Reggie Bush does will be a thorn in the side of every Texan fan. But don't fret... Quietly. Slowly but surely, Mario Williams will be making improvements. But since it's not flashy. A sack wont have the same impact as single 15 yard run. It's not fair. I know. But we'll have to deal with it. Fast forward to week seven. And that's when things start to change. Defenses will adjust and make life a little worse for Reggie Bush. Don't be surprised if Bush get hurt mid-season. One of my co-workers (a Detroit Lion's fan for 20 years) suggested this might happen and that Reggie Bush would finish the season with around 800-900 yards rushing. We've also had many talks about Barry Sanders comparison to Reggie Bush. After many hours of debate regarding Barry Sanders, Reggie Bush and Emmitt Smith (touchy subject among Lion fans) -- our conclusion is that Reggie Bush will not be like Barry Sanders. But more like Marcus Allen. Although, not identical. Two weaknesses that both Barry and Reggie share is that they aren't very good at breaking the tackle. Allen was better at this. Barry was better at behind the scrimmage runs/short cuts and change in direction. While Bush is better at open field runs and misdirection. Allen could do more power runs. Even though he had a great mid-field running skills. So, I see Reggie Bush following in the footsteps of Allen more than Sanders. Also note that Bush has excellent hands for receiving, like Allen. Sanders was a good at receiving. But certainly not as good as Marcus Allen (nor Bush). I think that the suggestions (by Michael Irvin) that Texans are like Portland in that they passed on Jordan and took Sam Bowie in the 1984 NBA draft...is a crap comparison. For one, Reggie Bush is NOT the same level of player of Jim Brown much less Michael Jordan. That's how good Reggie would have to be to be even be considered an NFL version of "Jordan." Even Emmitt Smith or Walter Payton didn't have the same impact on the NFL as Jordan had on the NBA (and more). And since when does an 11-man offensive roster (NFL) equal a 5-man line-up(NBA)? A single player has much more effect on the 5-man NBA line-up than one does on an NFL line-up. Nevertheless, the more people compare Reggie Bush to Jordan the higher the expectations will be. Can you say Harold Miner, Jerry Stackhouse, or Isaiah Rider? I say, good. Keep up with the Jordan comparisons. Like I said before. Reggie Bush will not be a flop (Ki-Jana Carter/Tim Biakabutuka/Tyrone Wheatley/Rashaan Salaam). He'll be an all-around great TB. But each spectacular run will just be hard to take for Texan fans. Just be patient. We're trying to build a championship. Not a ESPN-highlight. P.S. It's better that the Texans follow a team-building plan like Baltimore Ravens/New England Patriots rather than what the Detroit Lions did.
