Fire Reggie Bush as a punt returner

Fire Reggie Bush as a punt returner

Is anyone else ready to call the "Reggie Bush as a punt returner" experiment, a failure?

Thank God the Saints have players like Michael Jenkins, Bush owes him big-time.

Payton should have known that Bush wasn't ready to start fielding punts; he had already dropped a TD pass from Brees earlier in the game.

And who had the bright idea of using Tracy Porter as a punt returner? The Saints have enough trouble keeping the secondary healthy as it is.

And why hasn't the coaching staff addressed Lance Moore falling backwards as he catches a punt? He does it virtually everytime he fields a punt and it is only a matter of time until the ball gets away from him and the defender recovers it.

The Saints desparately need to draft a punt returner

If the Falcons dont sure up their punt return coverage and Reggie can hold on to the ball, I think you will change your mind after the Falcons/Saints game. He's rusty...give him another game or so. This coming from a Falcons fan.

You could be right. IMO,Payton should have used Bush as a RB to get him used to handling the football before using him full time.

he's got an extra 3 days to work on ball handling. You know SP will make him shower with a football in his hands

Something needs to be said to Bush about trying to turn a play into a circus act with a good lead. That was him trying to redeem himself in the spotlight, nothing more.

Maybe someone should learn the names of players on the team before expressing ignorance! IMHO
