I don't know about going over to the dark side, but I do have to give you credit for saying Bush wouldn't be the same runner he was in college in the pros. Though at the time I felt as if the claim was unsubstantiated (because nothing in his resume suggested he wouldn't be that elite player), it turns out in the end you were correct.

With that said, even though some of us are down on him, he's still is a pretty good football player and he has helped us win plenty of games. He's more than just a guy that helps create revenue for the team and the league.
Well I don't know if I would call him a football player... sure he has some speed and feet that would do him well on "DANCING WITH THE STARS". But when you are drafted #2 and making the money he's making you'd expect that player to put the team on his back. When the game is on the line and you have him on the bench... well thats all I have to say about that.

i think hes going to have too much pride to take a pay cut to reflect his worth. if he wants to restructure to a contract thats heavy in incentives, sure sign him up. otherwise, he can take his act elsewhere.

Re: "I hope you're watching!"

Good opening thread but I feel this will turn into a Bush bashing. No need. We are 4-0. Nuff said

Re: "I hope you're watching!"

I love to watch Reggie play, but at the same time he makes me sweat bullets. Every time he touches the ball, I expect something bad to happen.

Can anyone believe Payton doesn't feel the same thing? I think he does, and I think that's why Reggie's role is slowly declining.

Reggie is such a polarizing force on this forum, and other forums far and wide. Even TV sports commentators argue about him. Can anyone believe the Saints players and staff don't do the same thing?

Payton obviously still has Reggie's back, but his patience are probably growing thin. If fumbling or running backwards costs us a game, I can imagine Reggie being traded or cut loose pretty soon. His role is already reduced relative to his salary, so reducing his role further is not a good option.

He'll be fine, and we'll be fine.

Re: "I hope you're watching!"

I thin everyone expects a home run from him everytime he touches the ball and I think he tries to deliver that causing issues. He needs to just forget his "superstar" status and play the game and not fall into the hype expectations. He is still a playmaker just not every play.

I think Bush had his best game in a while except he fumbled and let the Jets back in the game.

Hopefully, he is carrying a football with both hands this morning.

Bush should call Tiki Barber. His career was almost over before he learned how to carry and protect the ball.
