Overall I can say, that I am very happy with the end result myself. And yes, Reggie has done some amazing things over his career, but IMO, not enough to warrant "star status", I guess. I honestly believe that this 8 million dollar pay out, will only happen one year, and he will restructure in 2011, or he will probably be gone.

Oh by the way... Love the avatar.

I agree...he may be gone. For all we know, Payton may be gone...and he might bring Drew with him. Nobody knows the future.

You know, if TC has another bad year up in NY...

Aww B.S.! You aren't about the "Gumbo", you're about Reggie Bush! You're just talking out of your a$$ now.

Case in point.....
What were your comments when we let Bell go? That he wasn't that Great? That he's expendable, replaceable? Did you get all analytical about what piece of Gumbo Bell was to the teams success? Convenient argument you've got going there now that offers whatever validity Reggie provides as a player or ingredient.

then you're going to argue about Reggie offering a certain "star" quality to the team. That's about s far a reach as they come. Think about it, think about the guys that make up this team... do you think they are elevated because they see Reggie and his internet hoe pop up online when they go home? Seriously, these guys. This rooster isn't about that.

And apparently you weren't around when we drafted Ricky Williams. Don't know if you remember, but he was kinda considered a star and believe it or not, he drew more constant media attention. The star value is only for your own personal gratification.

The character of this team isn't defined or influenced by Reggies star status.... It thrives off of the humble and professional persona's like Brees, Pierre, Colston, Vilma, etc.

Let's just put it this way. I'm as much all about Reggie Bush as you are all about trashing him.

Oh come on LB, you're reaching now....

Payton and Brees will be here until the dome collapses. Bush leaving, I think the majority of fans could see, but Brees? There would be a riot! Brees had a 5000 yard season. Bush hasn't had a 1000 yard season since he got into the pros.... Not really comparable bro...

C'mon, dude. Didn't you see the ""?

I'm just saying, it's hard to predict what's going to happen after next year...and if you don't think Payton is capable of going on to bigger and better things...and money doesn't talk and bs doesn't walk in the NFL..."cough-cough" Darren Sharper "cough-cough"...

Oh...and btw...did a little checking...hope these figures are correct.


Rushing Rcvg PR Total AP Yds

2006 562 742 216 1520

2007 581 417 12 1010

2008 404 440 270 1114

2009 390 335 130 855

So...as you can see...last year, being injured, was the only year he didn't get over 1000 all-purpose yds., which to me is just as good as a guy who gets them by pounding the ball over and over. JMO, though.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

My bad..... I'm kind of tired...

I agree with you, money does make the NFL world go round, I see Payton being like our Belichick in the long run. He hasn't had what anyone would consider a bad year since his hiring. And I just see Brees retiring as a Saint.

Re: New Orleans Saints uncertain about decisions of Pierre Thomas, Jahri Evans, others

We need to keep both PT and Bush. Both have qualities that fit into our current offensive plan. Difference between the two money wise is that PT was undrafted and signed for a lower paycheck and Bush being drafted has his deal. So now the back and forth deal making between the two begin. PT is worth more than what he is currently getting but he is not going to get more than Bush.

As for one being more replacable than the other I don't see it.
