    The Texans could have really used his 27 yards and 2 fumbles today. :user:

    I posted on another forum that Reggie Bush needs to get off my tv if he's gonna keep playing like he is and someone posted this:

    "TRJ its two games in, he didnt score til 6 games in last season.. we saw how that ended up.. oh yeah, and keep that in mind for your texans too. Two games into the season and you havent lossed, ok, but week 5 youre going to be 2-3 whats your point?"

    I love the people who think Reggie is jesus in cleats.

    The funny thing is he didn't look good last year either. I seem to remember him scoring most of his TDs in one game and all of those were within the 5 yard line.

    Bush will go down as the most overhyped player in NFL history. He is all over the TV as you said and has NOTHING to earn that.

    BTW Bush, "you're welcome!"

    yeah i know what you mean

    At least Manning has earned his airtime. Sure, he's in a bazillion commercials and some of them are funny, but being the best QB in the game does that for you. What's Bush the best at? or even one of the best at?

    but... in a way i feel for Bush because ESPN built him up to this huge "megastar" and now he's going to fall way short (although playing hardball with McNair when we were thinking about selecting him did nothing to earn his way into our hearts :bat: )

    Just to clarify, Bush scored 4 TD's against the Niners and had no other game with multiple TD's. He rushed 10 times for 37 yards and 3 TD's with his longest run being a 10 yard TD. He caught 9 balls for 131 yards and a TD and his longest was a 74 yard catch & run.

    The Saints won that game 34-10.

    And don't forget a wonderfully composed 15-yd personal foul.

    I have friends who aefans of other teams and they don't get why i rag on Bush so much. They raved about his ability as a decoy today. I was like....you mean... if your team drafted a decoy with the #2 pick of the draft you'd be happy?

    I have nothing against the guy and i've said as much repeatedly. I just didn't like all the hype promoting him as the next big thing and lambasting us for not choosing him.

    a lot of people use the argument that Bush is just a decoy for the reason his stats aren't that impressive. but, when his stats are awful AND the team does nothing on offense, then you can't even use the decoy argument, because he's failing at that, too.

    Reggie Bush is nothing more than an undersized WR. He's a slightly larger Eric Metcalf.

    Jameel Cook was a beast on special teams yesterday. I just hope that's where he stays.

    Payton is killing that team b/c he's fallen in love with the pass. he's simultaneously killing my fantasy team as well. Duece McCallister only 10 carries? really?

    Watching him on those commercials is starting to be comical. And then ESPN still puts him on their ultimate highlight, jumping over a guy for a 1 yard loss.

    I think they were playing catch up though. That's what happens when you defense sucks and can't stop anyone from catching the ball.
