Re: I wonder

I think they'll use both of them. Reggie will still be there but he's either a decoy or he splits out at Wide Receiver.

What's going to happen is we'll at least have 1 good power runningback on the team at anytime. If either PT or Bell gets hurt, we have a power rb backup.

I think using him as a decoy is what makes him a major threat. If Bell or PT are ramming the d-line, Reggie blocks or is a receiver. He's one of the most potent players in the open field.

I saw a few times in the first few games when he lined up with Bell, that they handed it off to Reggie up the middle and the defense looked completely confused and he gobbled up some yards.

Regardless of who your backs are, keeping the opposing defense off balance and on their heals is the key to championship offense. I like watching the defense confused for once!

I think he's just not hurt. Remember he's been hurt 2 seasons since 2006.

He is a good blocking back. He's good, I still love him. Believe me, when starts returning punts for touchdowns, we hear the critics shut up.

Re: I wonder

Bush will still need several carries a game if he's going to be a legit decoy. He's still going to run the ball. My money is on PT to start, with Bell taking 6-8 carries to keep PT from being overused, and Bush taking 8-10 carries to keep the defense off balance and provide that home-run opportunity (and yes, pass protection too). After that it depends on who is healthiest.

Re: I wonder

We need the screen game to start working with Reggie, thats where he i sth emost dangerous. Its not a pure passplay and its not a run play, just as he is neither a pure runningback or a reciever. Get him space and get him the ball.
