THANK YOU. I think everyone should get off of Reggie's back. People can compare him to Maroney and Addai and Jones-Drew and all that, but the fact is that his running style was much different from those guys in college. In addition to that, his running style was far more successful than theirs in college. When something has worked for you in college, it's hard to change it, but slowly he is changing his ways anyway.

Besides his maturation process, he still enables the rest of the offense. He enables Deuce, Colston, Henderson, Horn, everyone. Offenses are STILL keying on him. Once he learns how to run N-S more consistently it won't matter though. But if anyone thinks that Colston would still be putting up these phenomenal numbers if we had drafted AJ Hawk you're smoking something.

What games are you watching? In the last 3 games, Colston has drawn double coverage nearly the whole game. We can make all the excuses we want for Superman....a.k.a. Reggie Bush, & some of them are valid, but saying Colston is doing what he's doing because of Reggie is total B.S. . Watch the games.....LB's are with him in the middle zone & safeties are moving up playing robber on him when he beats the zone. That's double coverage bud! The man is just beating it!!!!

....and I guess Brees is doing so well because Reggie is just a beast in pass protection, huh? C'mon people.....the guy will be good, no doubt, but you guys sound like the West Coast media...."the Saints are so good because of Reggie Bush." Give me a break! Yes....he draws attention & yes he makes contributions, but don't give the dude credit for the way Brees, Colston, Deuce, & the O-line is playing. That's such B.S.!!!!!!

I'm not saying that Brees and company would be garbage without Reggie, but horrible stats or not, Reggie makes us a better team and he makes everyone better around him. That's it. I think everyone would agree with that.

... actually, Colston is at the point where he's opening things for the other receivers.

I think we can agree that all of our team players are important. We don't need to get into this contest saying which skill position player is more important than the other. Reggie helps our passing game. Eventually when Reggie learns to run N-S he can utilize the help that our passing game would be giving him. Fair enough.

I'm not saying that one player is more important than the other. I'm just saying that at this point it is Colston who's drawing the double and triple coverages, which usually leaves the other receivers man-to-man or wide open.

I think that with the loss of Colston in the 1st quarter of this game & the outcome afterwards, people on here will start to realize just how important the kid from Hofstra really is to this team.
