Re: It's time for Reggie Bush to grow up

Seriously, I think The NY Post got sick of making up stories on A-Rod for the year so they sent down one of their clown writers to make up a story on Reggie. Living up here I’m used to seeing stories spun so that an athlete is made out to be the bad guy and you learn to ignore it. Larry Holder is trying to make a name for himself and what better way to do that than to write a story about one of the young, up and coming stars in the NFL. The Saints, with their struggles are an easy target right now and this chump is taking his kicks while the Saints are on the floor. Just because Reggie didn’t give him the answer he wanted doesn’t mean he’s not upset about it. I would be willing to bet Reggie talked to Deuce after the game and was a great teammate. Reggie is a competitor and hates to lose, that is one of the things I like so much about him. He was asked these questions immediately following a tough loss and I don’t see any problem with the way he handled the situation. He hates losing and didn’t find it necessary to share with this guy how he was feeling about his teammate. Obviously he’s not happy Deuce got hurt, this guy should learn to ask some questions with substance.

As for Deuce, he is and always will be one of my favorite Saints of all time. I loved his quote right after the game; "I just told myself to get up off the ground. One lesson I learned growing up was to never let your opponent see your hurt. Regardless of what it is, if you can walk, walk off that field." Shows the kind of person he is and I have so much respect for him.

However, having said all of that, I have wanted to see what Reggie could do as the featured back, just wish it could have happened differently. It is way too early to start calling Reggie a bust and jump all over him. I hope the team rallies around Deuce and starts playing like the team we all thought they would be. I’m not ready to give up on the season yet, still plenty of games left to play. GO SAINTS

Oh, and I’m officially changing the name of this article to: “It’s Time for Larry Holder to Grow Up.”

Re: It's time for Reggie Bush to grow up

NFL football fields are nowhere near as wide as college football fields.

Reggie needs to learn how to hit the hole fast and vertically. You can't run from sideline to sideline because there simply isn't room to do it like in college. I have a belief that if he can sprint straight up into the open spaces, he can be extremely dangerous everytime he touches the ball. Until then, he'll remain largely unsuccessful.

Reggie you have to run through the line at FULL speed. Don't account for every defender, make the defenders account for you.
