Reggie Bush

Reggie did ok in his first game as the featured back. 3 yards per carry is not very impressive, but Carolina has a decent defense. The jury is still out on him as a featured back, but he deserves a couple more games. It is concurring that we seemed to abandon the inside running game.

Re: Reggie Bush

i thought reggie was ok but one area he needs to improve is hitting the chip block before going out on his check down pattern.

Re: Reggie Bush

This will probably sound stupid, but I think Reggie accelerates too quickly to the hole. If you watch other runners they save that burst for when they get to the hole to blow past the LBs and DL. Reggie hits it at full speed and nothings had time to develop.

LOL..Sterling Sharpe said the same thing one time. He said that RB is just too fast for his own good. Truth is....I thought he did well yestarday. Nothing foolish or fancy. He got positive yardage practically every time he touched the ball. Oh, and he held on to it as well. This season.....due to circumstances....Bush is gonna learn a lot and thats only good for us.

LOLOL....sorry to burst your bubble. But yeah....he said he is too fast and sometimes that speed does not allow him to see plays fully develop. He even demonstrated it.

Re: Reggie Bush

He isn't a feature back nor should ever be. When he gets in the hole he doesn't keep driving forward when its gets bunched up he tries to dance and take off to the side and runs in to his own blockers... I know own blockers sounds funny since there aren't really any. There were a couple of plays that caused him to do down after tunning into the big guys that were just standing around wearing the same uniform.

I hope people realize what you said... Reggie did 'ok'. OK for a number one RB pick.

Re: Reggie Bush

I thought Reggie ran just fine

I disagree Euph
I did see the "O" line protected Drew much better this week then others but as far as run blocking I was not impressed at all
Bush was getting hit at the line on 7 out of 10 of his carries
I think it is foolish to give up on this young man so soon
I know this season has been a huge disappointment but Reggie is no flop
Maybe this will remind you and everyone of what he can do when he gets a few good blocks and I really want everyone to pay attention to the blocking in these videos
Then if you want to see something really saddening look at some highlights from this year and there is no blocking at all

YouTube - Reggie Bush TD against Cowboys

YouTube - Reggie Bush Walks it Out Saints Style

YouTube - Saints Seaon 1 Reggie Highlights

It seams easer to blame the man with the ball that to place the blame where it should be

I don't understand what you are disagreeing with me on??? Ok line may have protected Brees well at times but there run blocking they didn't do well... so they sucked. Thats what I have been saying for years the problem is with the line I don't care if they have one decent portion to a game but they have sucked all year and years before.
