making a big deal over nothing

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; it's also called entertainment I was entertained... No one had a problem with Sheldon Brown celebrating after his hit on Reggie Bush....

Everyone's been gunning for Reggie all year. I can't recall the number of times opponents were lurking over Reggie after a huge hit or after he was stuffed in the flat. He finally turns it on in the second half of the season, and in this Bears game he got a little overexcited and pointed.

He probably had the biggest X on him in the entire NFL. I'm sure it felt great to have a gamebreaking play against the vaunted Bears who were probably trashtalking him the whole game.

But Shawne Merriman can do Lights out and Chad Johnson can do River Dance and that's not considered taunting. People are carrying on like this is like T.O. on the Dallas star or something. Reggie has plenty of class.

Like someone said earlier, no one had a problem when Reggie Bush was obliterated by Sheldon Brown the week before and Brown was carrying on like he conquered the world. People remember what they want to remember.

I have to agree. The Taunt seemed to be the media attracted like moths to a light. It makes for good story and gives the talking heads material to speak in high voices. However, if it provided motivation for Urlacher and crew and it spurred their next defensive series that resulted in The Safety and the whole momentum shifted as a result, then from a tactical standpoint, Reggie better keep that finger to himself next time.

Celebrating after a big play is one thing but taunting opponets just gets your ass kicked 39-14.

you know you're right...
Reggie did lose this one for us.
Like when he didn't pick up the blitz and drew brees fumbled the ball
oh wait that was deuce
Or when he put the ball on teh ground after the defense came up with a big stop
no wait that was michael lewis
maybe it was when he came up 8 yards short on a field goal attempt
nope that was cundiff
the intentional grounding?
sorry that was brees.

Wait I lost my train of thought
How did Reggie Bush lose this game for us again?
MAYBE IF ANY OF THE OTHER GUYS ON THE TEAM HAD AS MUCH CONFIDENCE WE"D BE TALKING ABOUT STOPPING PEYTON THIS WEEK

it wasnt one play that lost us this game.. there was a whole myriad of problems that went wrong for the saints... reggie didnt lose us this game... 4 turnovers and 7 penalties at bad times cost us this game.. and anyone who thinks reggie cost us this game doesnt know what they are talking about... the saints as a team played OK until the 4th quarter and thats when everything blew up on them... 21 4th quarter points by the bears cost us this game...not reggie bush...

The game is bigger than any one player... I never said Reggie lost the damn game... you win as a team you lose as a team. You are the ones who say 'Reggie didn't lose the game', making this about individuals. ITS NOT. No one player should have the right to taunt not even if you are whipping them silly!

The way Reggie acted he might as well be on the Pats team. It comes across as arogant and cocky, just down right classless. The players who do things like that are only in it for themselves and not worried about the team. Reggie needs to grow up and learn its not just him out there. When have you seen Deuce taunting someone... now that is class... Marvin Harrison... classy.

All you can really do is rally the opponets TEAM to key off and beat ya and then who has the last laugh/taunt... DA BEARS.

Reggie acted out individually but the Bears reacted as a team.
