Questions about Reggie Bush
 
I'm just trying to grasp how good Bush really is vs. other current Elite RB's in the league. I mean is he Really that much more special than the others ?

You constantly hear how he is probably the best RB to come out of college in 20 years. How only once every 15-20 years we will see a RB like Bush.

Now, I've been seeing some highlights of Tikki Barber, Ladanian Tomlinson, Priest Holmes, Edgerin James, Clinton Portis, etc....

What separates Bush from these other guys ? Is it his speed, catching ability, ability to change direction like Barry Sanders ??

for bush it is all about agility...
i have a picture on my desktop (i think i got it from this site) of reggie cutting a corner so hard that it looks like he is pulling off some sort of matrix move...
that may be why horn dubbed him "baby matrix"

Yea Yea Yea... cut on a dime.... give you change for a quarter. I've heard it before. Still, how is he the best player to come out in 20 years? Not just RB but player? Are we supposed to believe the hype?

the problem may not be that bush is a great, player...the problem will be that he is SO hyped that no one could possibly live up to it.

i think he will have a career much like marshal faulk. he will probably not end his career in the top 10 RBs of all time, but he will make more than a few pro bowls and help lead a few teams deep into the playoffs. i just hope he stays will the saints long enough to help lead the saints to the promised land.

The thing about Bush is his ability to accelerate very quickly. that allows him to pick a hole and hit it before the defense can close it down. His cutting ability and vision are other big assets. I put him in the Priest Holmes, Faulk category.

But what is most impressive is his receiving abilities. We are not talking about just the normal screen or short pass out of the backfield -- but receiving abilities like a wide receiver.

His all around talent and speed

Since I do not think he can carry a full workload as a RB I don't think his stats will be in the top 10 of all time but I think you will see some spectacular performances with pro bowl appearances and real match up problems for other defenses.

For someone to ask what makes Reggie Bush such a good RB, I have to ask the following question. Did you watch any USC games in the last 3 years?

No just the national championship. Texas had a good defense and Bush was easily contained. Wonder how that translates to the pros behind our OL?

In any case, just wanted to give you guys thing to talk about.

So based on that one game, we should have taken Vince(scored 16on wonderlik)Young?

Vince Young will be another Aaron Brooks. Only better.
