Hopefully he'll learn to be patience and get the yards he can. If not he'll be nothing more than a reciever. Which isn't bad.
I think it's coachable.

Reggie, take the ball through the 5 hole. Even if nothing is there, run into the line. Keep doing it until I tell you otherwise. If you bouce the ball outside, I'll let Duece and Stecker run until they have 2000 yards each.
And keep doing it until he runs downhill through the line.

I think Payton is part of the problem. Reggie gets a lot of pitches to the outside. It doesn't develop his downhill running sense.

Run him into the middle of the line. Keep doing it until he gets it. Simple.

Pass blocking we are doing A to B rated work
Run Blocking is a solid C.
Run blocking is harder to refine than pass blocking. done end of story.
Bush has to control his instincts. that is hard to do. But one day soon the Defenses around the NFL will have to stop keying on him. Drew is killing them. Defenses are playing us like last year. stop the run and dare the QB to them. well he is. soon my childeren, soon.
so relax and have the faith

I don't see any reason to sit the guy. Reggie does make for a great decoy. He's also a very good receiver. I don't like the breaking for the sideline stuff every carry, but he needs to be in the game......even if it's only as a decoy/receiver. I just would like to see Deuce get the majority of the running plays. Deuce is a better RB than Reggie right now. Let him carry the brunt of the load. Reggie can still be involved.......just not more often in the running game than Deuce, which is what I've seen lately.

Whoever called the game pretty much said everything that needed to be said about what Reggie's doing wrong out there (for once I enjoyed the commentating). He needs to be more patient and needs to stop bouncing everything outside. This isn't college anymore... he's got to learn to go north and south.

Man, I'd look like crap too if I had 11 people from the other team on me from start to finish.

C'mon, guys. Give the kid a break. Teams are pulling out college films of Reggie and are studying them way ahead of time to learn how to game plan against him. They spend so much time focusing on Reggie that they don't scout the rest of our team adequately. (IE - Colston).

Why the hell do you think we're 6-2? Like everyone else said, take Reggie out and I guarantee you our offense gets worse. The running game might get a tad better, but the passing game will decrease in effectiveness dramatically.

Reggie needs to spend time in the film room and with the scout team on running plays. The boy's gotta learn watching the great runners and then mimmicking them.

If anyone on this team should be mentoring Bush, it should be Deuce. Different running styles, I'll grant you, but Deuce could give the kid some pointers on staying patient, picking a hole, then turning the jets on...

...I tell you what... as long as half the defense follows Bush either left or right and leaves Colston or Devery 1-on-1 with a 5'10" DB out there and Brees finds them for 30+ 40+ yd TD's, it is all good with me.

You all talk about coaching, but you forget a small detail: Reggie Bush has never been coached to be a RB.
In collge - and most likely H.S. also - he ran on pure instinct and relied on his superior speed and physical ability to run circles around everyone. In the NFL, while he's still faster than most, he's not disciplined enough to do things like wait for a play to develop or cutting rather than reversing, because he never had to do that before.. It is going to take some time for him to learn that.

Also, the offensive line is new. We have guys who never played together, just started to play this year, even one guy who played his first NFL game at LT, playing on a new system. Yes they showed that hole that Reggie missed, but those holes aren't there often. Even when Deuce is running the ball, he rarely goes a yard or 2 past the line without getting hit. The o-line play is something that's going to take some time to develop also.

bush has a huge effect on other teams d's. teams are keying on him and it is opening other things. i would like to see deuce get more touches but i have an opinion that myabe he is still gettig healthy. we got a win and i will take that every time. keep reggie in he opens up the feild and allows for other things to happen. we are 6-2 and bush having minus 5 yards did not hurt the team so why sit him something is working right.

Yeah I knw and to think all pass plays we do in the west-coast hav been paly-action every pass play boy hav I've been wrong ...so the question I ask you my good-man is this: "You condone negative yards gained (oximoron)?"

Also Bush is a hell ova reciever let's keep it that way I like to see Bush catch really I do but dammit he's blinder then reality at the table of mediocre QBs convention sitting in Vick's seat, wonders why Vick doesn't want to sit down. He needs to go positive to shut me up no negative.
West Coast??? What West Coast? Are you even watching the games?

I'll tell you what I condone: grammar, a 6-2 record, and smart arguments.
Yes we do run a west-coast offense notice Brees short step drops we also ran WC with Brooks back in 2000-2002. So in accordance of what you've said I condone people who knw formations and plays in football not CPU geeks that don't knw the terminology or no the game thank-you
