"Since joining the team in 2006, Bush missed 20 games. In those games, the Saints went 13-7. Thatís a .650 winning percentage. In games Bush played, the Saints went 36-24 (.600).

But we have much more than that. In games with Bush since 2006, the Saints averaged 25.9 points. Without him, they averaged 29.8. In games Bush played, the Saints averaged 377.4 yards per game. When he didnít play, they averaged 419.8.

The Saints completed 66.5 percent of their passes when Bush played. When he didnít, they completed 67.6."

To say that Reggie Bush single handedly won the Super Bowl for us is silly. If you want to pick a player, or play rather, that won us the Super Bowl I'd say it was the ambush play at the start of the second half. Sometimes the difference between winning and losing is that little thing called momentum.

If you disagree with me, that's fine. But I think we'll be just fine.

Don't take this thread seriously dude, its meant to a sarcastic thread. No one would label this guy a bust if he had a tough first day.

Tracy Porter got burned by Marques Colston on his first ever defensive snap, 2 years later he sealed our superbowl win!

We won't know until the middle of the season given the fact that there were no OTA's and plenty of bickering about the CBA.

I thought the obvious sarcasm was obviously obvious.

I laid it on pretty thick, obviously.

Hey, I have always supported Reggie. To this day I still don't believe he was used correctly in our offense and I think it stunted his ability and his career here.

On another note, Reggie alluded to his injuries being caused because he wasn't playing on natural turf, but last season alone, he was injured twice, once on natural turf against Pittsburg and the other, also on natural turf in Seattle so that statement doesn't hold water.

Finally, I think we'll all see a much improved Reggie in Miami, after all, they know how to run the ball and have an O-Line that knows how to run block. Now that's the last thing I have to say about Reggie until the season starts.

As for the practices, I'm somewhat disturbed with Drew's continued carelessness with the football already in TC with 3 picks being thrown in 3 practices. I hope he can get back to 09 form.

As for Ingram, I'm usually fairly positive about rookie RB's but I'm wondering if we're all expecting too much from this kid like we did with Reggie and then wind up getting disappointed. Due to all the injuries, our RB corps looks a little thin going into camp but if everyone comes out healthy by the start of the season it could be a very good RB corps.

I know one thing, and that is that I'm really looking forward to seeing Shaun Rogers play. I wish we could have gotten him 3 years ago. Can't wait to see his effect on our D-Line. Cullen Jenkins made a mistake going to the Eagles but then he already has his Super Bowl ring so it's all about the money for him now. Too bad, he could have joined that group of players that won Super Bowls on two different teams. Still, I hope we pick up another DT and or Hargrove for the rotation.
