Not at all.

"It's all part of the process," he said, noting he missed a week and a half of training camp when he was a rookie with the San Diego Chargers, that All-Pro running back LaDainian Tomlinson missed two weeks.
Reports are that he's limiting himself to 80 passes a day at a 55 yard limit but that he has gas in the tank for more.

RE: Brees isn

Bush is in top shape and form so as conditioning is concerned, we really don't have to worry about that. What he's missing is learning the playbook and building chemistry with his teammates. He's coming from a pro system so in all honesty, I think he'll be fine if he signed midway thru the preseason.

RE: Brees isn

Papz,

One open question that I asked the forum once before but didn't get a response to is blitz pickup packages. Is Bush expected to be prepared to take on 240 lb linebackers and big fast safeties in the blitz?

RE: Brees isn

My opinion is that it wouldn't take him that long to make that adjustment because he's been playing for Pete Carroll for the past 3 years. I know he didn't have to block much during college because he was such an intricate part of the offense, but I'm pretty sure Carroll taught him a thing or two. He's big enough, smart enough, and athletic enough to accomplish anything on the field... it might take a couple of games or two, but we aren't expecting him to carry the bulk of the load in the back field as it is. He'll learn a lot from Deuce and Karney on the sidelines. Rookies make mistakes and he'll make his fair share before he takes over full time... next season. If our front line can do their job, it'll make every thing much easier.

RE: Brees isn

And the way i see it Bush will be in motion alot so he wouldn't be in blitz pickup much.

"He's big enough, smart enough, and athletic enough...."

".... and people like him".


Sorry. I had a Saturday Night Live moment.
