BUSH DOWNFIELD MORE!!!!!!!!

I would like to see Bush go on more Fly patterns, Hitch and go, button hooks, and slants. Seems to me, almost everytime we throw a pass his way, it's usually swing passes behind the line of scrimmage. Against the Falcons, Bush went on a hitch and go and Brees was a little long on the pass, if that pass was on the money, he takes it to the house. But the Saints never went back to that play again, why? If a Linebacker or a Safty rotates coverage on Bush, one of those routes should spring him loose. So Coach, if your listening, give him a couple of shots down field.

I wouldn't be surprised to see it again. Payton has seemed to be a master of working out a gameplan that works and isn't afraid to make adjustments, and Brees has been great at finding mismatches in coverage, too.

I've thought the same thing lately. We get him the ball with his back to the defense too often. All of his pass routes seem to be little out's in the flat or swing routes. The bubble screen we ran that he took 70+ yards was a new wrinkle, but I wonder why we don't run more WR type routes with him. My only guess is that he's primarily a safety valve.

Maybe some of you that are inclined to call in the various Saints radio shows could ask about that?

... your cries for attention have started to trouble me somehow.
... you should probably seek professional help, for your own good.

RE: Re: RE: BUSH DOWNFIELD MORE!!!!!!!!

If Colston and Horn are healthy then I think they could threaten deep early and open up the short passing game that the WC Offense is made for...It is also where Bush and Deuce are very Dangerous...I wish there was a better TE out there...Campbell has shown me nothing and dont even mention Billy "I Suck" Miller...Why oh Why did he let Hilton go???
