also has more 20+ yard carries than the other

And the kicker.....

Which RB is getting paid way more than they are worth?

Okay....since you really want to go there...........

Pierre Thomas Career stats (3 years):

Rushing: 1670 yds on 328 attempts (5.1 yds/carry), 16 rushing TD's & 3 fumbles.

Reggie Bush Career stats (4 years):

Rushing: 1940 yds on 488 attempts (4.0 yds/carry), 17 rushing TD's & 17 fumbles.

Dude.....the numbers don't lie & neither do my eyes when I'm at the games watching. Get off Reggie's nuts & watch the games!

i didnt say that your post was untrue......i just pointed out a few omissions from your post

who gives a ****....they both play for the same team and they both do well when they are on the field.....its not like there is less production because one guy is on the bench when another is on the field

St.t thanks for clarifying amount total. I'm not understanding your question totally. Not that I could answer it but I'll try and give an opinion.

....ok, moving on, "what" has Reggie Bush figured out [cue subject changing sarcasm or insults]
You look pretty nerdy to me LMMFBAO, Logic you'v gotta be the biggest hater a home team has ever had. Even Gayle Sayers would say so, Reggie Bush is a transitioning player hes finding out how to play the NFL game, He works perfectly with what SP wants to use him for he just hold the position of RB so he maximize his touches. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE TO YOU IF NOT REREAD Until lightbulb comes on, that said, I like PT's running hes just a hard working guy you have to appreciate that doesnt complain just goes and gives it his best shot. Reggie is just as solid, Hes a heart stopper in the open field and is just electric, he does turn me off when he runs outta bounds sometimes but the world keeps turning, to accurately decide who is better ask your self this would u rather have to worry about PT or Reggie Bush??? thought so, I say the one wearing the Gold helmet is the best

Agreed.... But you're still missing my point. Reggie is making more than the elite RB's of the NFL, and hell..... he's not even the best RB on the team. My point, to begin with, is that there are other areas of need that we could be spending that money....DT, OLB, etc... Do I want to have the guy on the team? Hell Yes.... He's a threat w/ freakish speed & athleticism. Do I think he should be making what he's asking for? Hell No..... He hasn't earned that kind of pay day yet.

Being he gets the 8 million this year, and had recieved 2.5 mil and some change last season put him a little over 5 mil average in two years which isn't all that ridiculous in my opinion.Now the cap hit next year we would take wouldn't be worth it by no means. Do we restructure by using a extension?pete carroll will probably come to reggies financial rescue if not in my opinion.
I do believe reggie is coming around being that he's gaining the needed strength,mentality,and tenaciousness to evolve into a more efficient running back/recieving threat out of backfield/punt returner;all the while him understanding his role on our team.now the money 11.8.. ouch..

Believe in only what you've come to know -Repete

Re: Pierre Thomas is the Saints best back & a true fan favorite

all these money arguments are unproductive, if your not cutting checks STFU... I could understand if reggie was pulling a charles grant then you could complain but if you truly are saints fans and watch the games you can see reggie's value, his contract is a product of being selected #2 overall.
