Reality Check

REALITY CHECK- NOLA.com

"I've had plenty of time to reflect," said Bush, who turned 23 this month. "I missed the last four games. That really hurt me because I never really had to miss any games before. I had a lot of time to think and just go through what approach I want to take this year and how I want to go about this year and getting to that elite level of athletes."

That approach is an increased focus on football and the Saints, specifically, throughout the offseason. He arrived for the start of the team's offseason workout program Monday and plans to stay throughout most of the spring and summer.

Last year, Bush spent most of his offseason in Southern California. He stayed dedicated to his training, he said, but he realized it's not the same as being around teammates and coaches every day.

Re: Reality Check

Receiver David Patten said he doesn't think Bush needed to be humbled because he never carried himself like he was "The Man." But he did say that last season offered a reality check about how difficult it is to succeed in the NFL.

"I think the expectations for him were so high, people were disappointed," Patten said. "But at the same time, he's still a baby. He's still a puppy. He's still learning the game. And whenever he hits his stride, the sky's really the limit."


I love Patten.

Re: Reality Check

Patten is such an all around better teammate than Horn, it's ridiculous.

Funny two years ago people would have killed you on this board for that comment, no matter how true it is.
