Reggie is more suited for a zone scheme.....He would do great in Denver.

You must have heard wrong. I don't recall anyone ever saying he was going to be a special RB. I did hear people say he was going to be a 'special football player'. And for all its worth he is a special football player (not RB). Thats it except for a few knuckleheads who insist on calling him a RB or better yet a featured RB of which he never was except high school. He wasn't even a featured back at USC.

I basically agree that he is a return specialist.

But I do remember hearing a lot of "Reggie Bush is a once in a generation football player." If he were just a return specialist, then Devin Hester is much more the once in a generation kick returner. Reggie also got a lot of comparisons to Gayle Sayers. I think many folks thought he was going to electrify the league. Others thought he couldn't take the pounding of a RB.

He hasn't because he can't run between the tackles and can't outrun the defense to the corner, but it seems a bit too much to say that folks didn't think he would do well.

Re: Reggie Bush, the FUTURE?

Reggie will be fine. We need to replace Deuce though.

Re: Reggie Bush, the FUTURE?

How do you know Reggie will be fine? What has he shown to prove he is going to have even an "Okay" year? Deuce carries half of the Eagles team into the endzone two years ago and wasn't having too bad of a year until he got hurt.

Deuce is proven.

Reggie is not.

Re: Reggie Bush, the FUTURE?

Maybe I'm just being biased because of my little incident I had with him his rookie season, but I vote NO. I think he's a good athlete, but not an NFL RB. C'mon, the guy goes down on the first hit! He doesn't break tackles at the line of scrimmage. Everybody knows that in the NFL you have to break those initial tackles to be a successful RB. Anyway....after the comments he made last year about knowing when to go down to prolong your career, I don't think he's going to be NFL starter material. I hope he proves me wrong, but so far he has not.
