Reggie's 44 yard run

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I wasn't trying to say let's get rid of Deuce, I think Deuce is great. I just hear alot of people saying that he's too small, or not strong enough to be an every down back, and I think it's ...

I wasn't trying to say let's get rid of Deuce, I think Deuce is great. I just hear alot of people saying that he's too small, or not strong enough to be an every down back, and I think it's B.S. When Emmit Smith came into the league he was only slightly bigger than Bush, and he ended up as the all time leading rusher. I think that Bush is going to be a player with the work ethic to improve his blocking on passing plays, and after that I don't see many weak spots.

Emmitt Smith 5-11 209 lbs
Reggie Bush 6-0 203 lbs
Smith ran behind the best offensive line in NFL history.
Bush will run behind???????????????

I'm just saying.......

I agree with you.
I hope Reggie will be great.
Nothing would make me happier.

I'm just saying.......

Bush has alot more speed than I remember Emmit ever having, not to mention he catches the ball out of the backfield better than Emmit.

God run, the O-line looked better than suspected

Yeah, I saw that on that pass that Brees shanked early on. The rush came hard, and Brees threw a bit too quick to keep from taking a sack, but the line held. They made some good blocks, and he had the time he needed.

That tells me the O-Line is better than Brees thought too.

That is good.

Sweetness II has arrived. tell you guys walter payton JR.. Henderson did good in blocking downfield. he just did not have the angle to put an excellent block on the defender to spring bush for the TD. Stop the what ifs on the duce trade thing. It will be a good 3 years before the team thinks about. If they are smart. Injuries are the only way to speed that up. We all want a healthy Duce so Bush becomes the best he can be in the NFL. Ol is a work in progress and I hope the look better next week. Get the starters back. the backups look better than I thought. That LT needs all 4 pre seasons game to get his sh*t together. :P

Yeah, Brown got beat too many times in a short period of time, but our RT didn't play too bad.Unfortunately, LT is the most important spot on the OL.

I totally agree. Had Henderson not fell down on his block, Bush was taking that one to the house!

I'm another one who thinks that our offensive line didn't look as bad as everyone said it would. They may not be great, but it might be just enough for Brees to get by. Our QB's didn't look THAT flustered did they?

They didn't look bad in run blocking. Pass protection, on the other hand, was a different story.
