The Way We Hear It.....

Season tickets are selling at a record pace. Saints jerseys are now a hot item for Internet shoppers. Public support for the Saints has never been better. One man can’t take all the credit for the smiles in the Crescent City, but rookie RB Reggie Bush sure deserves the lion’s share of the praise. When the Saints selected Bush with the No. 2 overall pick, they not only got the No. 1 talent on the field (according to their draft board), but they got the No. 1 attraction off the field, too. Bush ingratiated himself to the Gulf Coast community by thanking them for their warm reception in a full-page color advertisement in The Times-Picayune. We hear that RB Deuce McAllister was one of the biggest proponents of the Bush pick even though Bush plays the same position. McAllister, the Saints’ starter for the past four years, is coming off a serious knee injury, and we hear he will benefit from Bush’s arrival because, while his carries will go down, it should keep him fresher. Bush’s presence also won’t allow teams to stack the box against McAllister as they did last season. Backup RBs Michael Bennett and Aaron Stecker are the only players sweating the Bush pick. Not only will their carries dwindle, but Bennett or Stecker could receive a pink slip or get traded in the coming months.

IMO - I think Stecker is going to be the odd man out. Good to see ticket sales going up, too.
