    If this dude is injured... I sure can't tell. Reggie Bush will earn his money if he can play like this guy AND stay healthy. Westbrook is an MVP candidate this year... his impact is like that of Smith last year. You just can't stop him, he hurts you in so many areas.

    8 rushes for 52 yards, 3 catches for 47 at half.

    he just caught a 52 yard screen and scored a TD with 30 seconds left. not bad.

    still, by far the worst tackling i've ever seen in my life.

    He's got a tendency to do that to defenses.

    Yeah, is that the longest game winner ever.

    I'm sure the folks in Philly are real happy right now.

    Yeah I originally thought the Bush-Brian Westbrook comparisons to be quite insulting, but if he can play like that then he is definitely worth the pick

    i dunno about "worth the pick" but he'd definitely be valuable. if he can play as well as westbrook, which i'm not convinced of yet.

    I am delighted that Westbrook is on one my fantasy teams. I ended up with more points from him than my QB, Carr, who also had a very good day.

    Apparently it was over 100 degrees and he was running for his life, but I guess that has no bearing on what happened. McNabb started slow but redeemed himself nicely throughout the game...anyway, back to the topic...

    Brian Westbrook was Reggie Bush before there was a Reggie Bush in the NFL. I'm actually kinda surprised I haven't heard more comparisons between the two from the mediots.

    Westbrook never gets any love though, unless he's on your Fantasy Team, I'm sure whoever has him loves him a great deal. :)

    Westbrook is far better between the tackles than Bush. Hell, Samkon Gado is probably better between the tackles than Bush. So much for re-defining the RB position in the NFL. Nice pass catcher in space and return man though.

    Westbrook is listed as Q every week but he keeps getting it done. He's the #2 RB in our ESPN FFL, traditional scoring. I drafted in the third hole and got Westbrook in the 4th round in my league (Tomlinson in the first round) so things are looking good for me at the moment.
