Race for Reggie Bush now includes five teams

By Len Pasquarelli
ESPN.com


Once just a two-team horse race, the Reggie Bush Derby has suddenly been joined by several more entries, and it may take the NFL equivalent of a photo finish next Sunday evening to determine the outcome of the chase for the top spot in the 2006 draft.

With the possibility that Bush, under at least one scenario, could be knocked out of the winner's circle.

If Houston wins and we lose there is no one that can touch our SOS and that's the bottom line cuz Stone Cold said so.

Bee I don't think head to head comes into play in the draft game and if it does show me the way.

Were the Saints to secure the top pick, it might alter the landscape of the '06 draft, and could keep Bush from being the top player chosen. The Saints already have a standout tailback in Deuce McAllister and, even though he is currently rehabilitating from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, the New Orleans star is expected to be fully recovered well in advance of training camp. Plus, the Saints last summer signed McAllister to a new $50.1 million contract and would probably be reluctant to make another lucrative investment in the tailback position.

New Orleans, which will probably jettison veteran quarterback Aaron Brooks after the season, might be more inclined to address its needs at that critical position. And that could thrust Bush's Southern California teammate and fellow Heisman Trophy winner, Matt Leinart, into the top spot. Then again, given that Saints owner Tom Benson claims to have lost $45 million this season as a result of Hurricane Katrina, he might not want the top spot and the financial realities one incurs with it, and could trade the pick.
Unless there's an ownership change, this is a very real scenario.

Actually, that's not right at all. Head to head is never a consideration when it comes to the draft. They go to a coin flip if two teams have the same record, and same weak SOS. If your scenario plays out, we lose, Jets lose, Hou wins, we will pick number one.

Christ almighty. It only goes to the coin flip if we have the same SOS. I am pretty sure we will still have the weakest SOS of all the 3-13 teams once this week plays out.
