    I seem to remember this question getting brought up somewhere on the forum but it never really got officially adressed.

    So. what should it be? Personally i am leaning toward something in the twenties b/c numbers in the 40's just seem like the belong to bigger backs or FBs. So that leaves the 20's and 30's. I heard the idea of taking #34 from morency to keep the tradition of great 34's going and that doesn't sound too bad. Then again we could go smaller and say 22 or 25. 22 for Emmit (my pick) or 25 b/c he wore 5 in college. There is also 35 and that would be acceptable as well.

    The decision is yours.....well at least untill he actually decides....and even if we draft him....either way i want your opinions, so bring them on.

    I'd like him to pick a number that isn't very popular. That way it can be the next big number. Like when Jordan decided on 23.

    25 or 28. I think both will look good on him.

    He'll be #25. That's why they had to cut Hollings.

    :tv: I think Bush would've bought 25 anyways. I think that'll be his number. The 30s numbers seem like they are for bigger backs, but that's just me.

    25 not 34

    34 is too big a number for Reggie Bush.

    I figure since WRs can take non 80s numbers, then running backs can too, and with the contract he's gonna get I don't think he'll have any qualms about coughing up the extra dough for #5. He's had it since highschool and wrecked in it ever since, why stop now? Besides, scat backs look better in small numbers...

    21 would be cool like Tomlinson like THEFUTURE said. They are good friends but does anyone on our team have that number?

    A WR can take 10-19 and 80-89 numbers. That is because there are many retired numbers.

    I agree with you there. If he could wear 5 I would like to see him wear that.

    i still like 22 b/c of Emmitt Smith. Also, no one ever wears 22 anymore.

    If you are a WR you can wear a number in the 80's or a teen number. Pretty simple stuff.
