Re: Happier, but still not happy

Plus, I want to see Reggie Bush lower his shoulder pads and drive into a cornerback just once rather than prance in fear out of bounds. He might inspire our O-Line to lower their pads for runs between the tackles.
I remember debating a lot of people about this during his rookie season. He shys away from contact... something that really irks me. He needs to lower his shoulder and gain those extra yards rather than running out of bounds all the time. At USC, you use to see him run the side lines and cut back into the field exploding for big plays. This is an element in Reggie's game he needs to rediscover.

Please if anyone wants to talk about we need to keep him healthy, unnecessary contact, we already got the first down, yadda yadda mumbo jumbo... don't waste your breathe on me.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

It irks me to no end the way Reggie runs. Nobody wants a Marvin Harrison at running back. Bush has enough speed and shiftiness to make the cuts necessary for those game changing runs - but he continues to run directly sideways instead of north. Darren McFadden anyone?

LOL, I agree with you... John Madden also agrees with you. There is this new trend where RB's get what they can and get out of bounds. There is a theory in thinking that it will prolong there life span in the NFL, by taking less hits and unecessary abuse. "Get what you can and then go down/out of bounds". I can agree with it to a degree but you are right there have been some obvious plays where he should have lowered and take the etra 2-3 yards even as you dive to the ground for it but instead runs right out of bounds.

Barry Sanders also to his credit ran north/south/east/west. Using your ****iness also means running east/west as well. Bush really isn't a power runner. I know I'll get slammed for that comment but come on he isnt built as a power runner he is a slasher-speed guy. A RETURN MAN gone RB.

He's not a power runner, but he does (in italics so you know it's for real) lower his shoulder for the tough yards these days (underlined for added emphasis).

Re: Happier, but still not happy

I think that I speak for most people when I say "Why in the world is PT not in there?" Make him the primary rb and move Bush all over the place. Put Stecker in for third downs.

It must be PT's pass blocking. Remember, that is usually the most difficult aspect of the pro game for rookies to pick up on.
