15 yards per play if 50% more than most teams average on pass plays. he's every defense's kryptonite.

And yet we score less with him in the line-up. Go figure.

I'm willing to bet that's more a facet of the way we play red-zone offense than a knock on Bush.

C'mon man, he adds 10 freaking yards per play but we score less with him in the line-up?


I think I might be getting the hang of this now... let me try...

When Reggie is out of the line-up, opposing defenses are so relieved that they let down their guard and we end up scoring more.

Or... they are so confused, not knowing what to do with the extra 2 guys they normally put on Reggie, that they cannot execute their scheme correctly anymore.

Or... since Reggie is on the sideline (in street clothes), all 11 defenders are still spying him and not paying attention to the guys on the field, allowing Drew to march down the field (albeit in significantly smaller chunks) and score more.

The Reggie-Fear factor. LOL!!!

While I think he's our 3rd best RB, it will be interesting to see the 3-headed monster PT/Ivory/Bush all healthy and contributing.

Now that healthy trio would truly cause Defensive Coordinators some serious nightmares.

I wish Ivory would pack a few pounds maybe. I'm scared he'll break. Not because he's small, but because he runs like a 260 pounder.

I called it in the Chat - PT would come up big.

Also said I thought Meachem and Moore would, too...

The red-zone offense argument really isn't that sophisticated, Danno. You don't pull many play-action passes for 50 yards from the 10.
