Reggie wasn't Reggie back there this past season.

Hate to see him go, but we knew it was coming. Just glad I never bought a #25 jersey.

If I were Reggie I'd try and stay. Miami isn't going anywhere and the Saints have a serious shot of getting deep into the playoffs and beyond. Money is one thing but regret is another. You can always make more money but having two rings and all the accolades that come with it, endorsements, post career opportunities, bragging rights. It would haunt him the rest of his life.

Reggie Bush deal with the Saints, per league source: Two years, $9.75 million. He gets $5 million in 2011.

We were going to have to release him anyway... His tweets after the draft proved he was all about the money and wasn't going to work with us on restructuring.

Personally I'm not worried, his rookie season is the only season that he stayed healthy for us. That's with the limited touches that Sean was feeding him. Miami is going to drive him into the ground, his body is just not built for the amount of carries I'm sure they will give him.

What is our compensation for the trade?

Not happy about it. I don't think Miami knows how to use bush correctly and he will only have a marginal impact. Bush has been playing behind one of the better OL in the NFL for years. Miami's OL is not that great. I think they will over play him and he will get hurt,,, um again. Plus they don't have the weapons we have, and good QB play, so he's not much of a mismatch for defenses playing Miami. Id be surprised if he did well there.

We needed him because when we have thomas,colston,moore, meachum, and david thomas on the field with bush, he is a mismatch nightmare, you can't put a LB on him, and he's brilliant at sweeps, and short slants. So he kills the blitz on brees.
Bush can be on his game, Like the cardinals playoff game, and almost win it single handed, and then he can almost single handedly lose you a game,lol, Like Dallas last year or Seattle.
Hes an Xfactor, but not a full time talent, like Johnson. He can't pull the weight of a team.
Losing him, it will seriously hurt the way defenses cover our WR,TE's,RB and we might not be able to maintain the #1 offense in the NFL we have enjoyed sense 2006. We might have to come to terms with that, or find another threat to plug into his spot, like Brad smith, maybe.


I think the only teams besides N.O. where he could be effective is, Patriots, Eagles, colts, and chargers. But wish him the best, we know he did the best he could, he just cost to much.

Time to make the DOMENuts !!!!
