Bush last night on Jimmy Kimmel..time to show me

recap of what was said..

Said he toured the 9th ward and said it was devastating. Made him realize he's playing a lot more than a football game, he's playing for the city.

Kimmel interrupted him and said "But you're keeping the money right?" Bush laughed, then said "No actually, we're going to donate.." Then Kimmel cut him off again to tell another joke.

Bush talked a ALOT about endorsements

ok..honeymoon is over...the line about touring the 9th ward..how many times are we gonna hear that?? It's like he's a robot or something..and frankly i don't care about your adidas contract or subway or i dunno..friggin trojan condoms whatever..time to show us now..i know this ain't the 60's and it's about the money also and if i were him..i would be enjoying this because you dream of this and now it's a reality..but it's time to produce something because really..bush hasn't shown us anything yet

and jimmy kimmel can bite me..even though bush was saying the exact same line about our city for like the fourth time..kimmel cuts him off to talk about the money...twice!!
america no longer cares about what happened to our city and i don't think bush does either
now..if july comes and bush is IN camp with a contract and september comes and he's rackin up points then i'm GLAD to put my foot in my mouth but until then..show me reggie..i wouldn't mind being wrong about this

I agree with you. Until he signs, all the good talk is just that, talk.

Sounds like Bush got to talk a little more than his pre-draft interview with Conan on NBC. What a joke that was.

A) Bush hasn't spent much time here yet, so he can't make things up to say about the city.

B) Like you said, and like I noticed, when he started to get in to what plans he had to donate money he was cut off. Kimmel's a comedian. He wasn't trying to do a 20/20 article.

No reason to be so hard on Bush. He's been nothing but class since we picked him.

I thought it was going to be much worse. I like Jimmy Kimmel...and i know he is a comedian...so i was expecting him to be blasting the Saints and New Orleans and he didnt. So i thought the interview was fine.

uhm you were watching the Jimmy Kimmel show and you didn't expect jokes??? I tought it was pretty fun actually. And you also have to expect players to tow the company line and say the political correct things to say...

umm..yeah i expect jokes and i know what i was watching..i just thought it was a little inapropriate for the subject and also insincere on bushs part because he was repeating the same thing word for word that he was quoted on saying a few times before..i know this is a buisness and it's mostly about the money..so if he comes out and is everything in the pros that he was in college...thats fine by me..but when you repeat yourself it just comes off phony thats all..i say it's time for him to stop goin on talk shows and promoting his endorsments and lets get a deal done fast and go to work..the faster the deal is done..the more sincere i will take him..actions are louder than words

What would you like Bush to say about the Katrina situation that would sound more sincere since he's been here for only a handful of days?

Endorsements are endorsements for the purpose of endorsing. Let the guy make himself as marketable as possible. Let him make his money. Let him have a reason to be satisfied being a Saint, and a player in a small NFL market. Let him have no reason to wish to be in another city.

The guy is a 20 something kid who has been tossed into the limelight and titled the Savior of the Cresent City and he has been a Saint all of a week. This was probably the first time the kid has been to NO in his life. Give him a break, would you rather him make stuff up. This is his dream and we are lucky to even have him. We could be staring at the Texans forums dreaming about the what if's.
