Bush open to restructuring Saints contract after lockout lifted
 
Reggie Bush remains on point: His preference is not to find a new NFL home in 2011.

"I want to be back with the Saints. I think our No. 1 priority is to stay with the Saints, restructure a deal where both sides are happy," Bush told The Times-Picayune on Friday. "It's just about getting this lockout out of the way so we can do that.

Interesting. If he means this and he wants to stay a Saint (no reason to doubt him I guess), then it slightly refutes the point about him wanting grass vs turf article ESPN ran. I also wonder why he wants to stay in NO. He probably will find a team that will pay him more than the Saints. With the money going into Thomas and the upcoming Ingram contract, I think some team will outbid them so to speak. Maybe he thinks the org. has established itself as one of the league's best and he wants to continue being a part of that. Maybe he likes the area. I'm just wondering really. Does anyone know if he spends time in the area? Does he have a NO residence ?

I think if San Diego came calling, he'd go back home. Thats about the only team I'd think he'd leave us for, unless we low-ball him.

You can't help but get a little excited about what "could" be IF (big IF) the 2006 version of Reggie surfaces with Ingram, PT and Ivory in the backfield. WOW!!!

Consider Graham and the WRs into this scenario and even Payton might have trouble working all the pieces in.

No worries, Drew will find the open guy and keep everyone involved.

The good thing is the Saints dont need Bush to be successful.

We have the pieces to win without him.

I hope Bush understands this

He's the guy to do it. It is fun to ponder how good they can be if all the pieces do fit. Great talent at WR, TE, QB, and RB. If the line holds up, it could be one of the best ever.

We'll bich-slap the "greatest show on turf" offenses of the late 90's. Ingram will be our Marshall Faulk.

I'm telling you, it's kinda scary to consider just how freaking good we could be with our backs healthy, our QBs knee something less than questionable, and Reggie playing with a chip on his shoulder...if Ingram compares...even compares...to Emmit Smith as some have suggested...holy smoke on the water Danno...

I'm wary of the Emmit Smith comparisons. Yeah, he's built identical and runs much like Emmit did, but if everyone is already expecting this kid to be Emmit Smith, we're setting ourselves up for disappointment.

While he does look like an Emmit Smith COLLEGE clone, the NFL is a different story. Also, if Emmit didn't run behind one of the best offensive line to ever step foot on a field, he'd just be another very good RB. Emmit also benefitted greatly from staying injury free for so long. That is impossible to project at the NFL level.

Personally I think Ingram will be more of a Marshall Faulk type RB in this offense. Thats good enough for me.
