he's used to sharing carries with lendale white. i'm sure he wants the ball more (who doesn't?) but he's a team guy. i don't think it'll be a problem.

RE: bush??

I think both guys are humble and winning will satisfy like nothing else. Both are under contract so don't look for either one of them to go anywhere next year. Reggie gets a lot of touches as a receiver so its not as if he doesn't get the ball. And though I'd like to see Deuce get more carries, I don't think he'll complain as long as we win. After all it is a team sport.

I wonder how they will have both, on the team next year.

When Bush develops, puts on 12 lbs, and gets more reps running between the tackles, he will eventually get more carries. He has shown definite improvement in his game over the last few weeks as far as running north-south.

I think next year, the carries will be more 50/50, and by his third year, he will be getting the majority of the carries. By then, Duece will have played for 9 or 10 years, and Bush will have 3 years of practice, without taking the beating of an imediate starter.

I'm afraid that they are going to try and move Deuce at some point. I would love to see us keep both of these guys for as long as humanly possible just because of how many matchup problems we can create.

I think how long Deuce stays here depends on how successful we are as a team. If we begin to regress next year and the year after, then yeah I'm pretty sure that they'll move him. If we become competitive year in and year out, then I can see him staying a little longer. But he is getting old nonetheless. I only see him being effective at an NFL level for a couple of years or so given his injury history.

Well the way coach Payton has this team mentality set on teamwork, i don't think it's ever going to be a problem. Now, when they start getting more production, yardage wise from Reggie, than we start discussing more carries for him, until then the DEUCE gets the bulk of the carries
