The one thing Reggie Bush hasnít forgotten about winning Super Bowl XLIV, and other Saints notes
 
1 Attachment(s)
Itís been four years and two teams ago that he helped the Saints win Super Bowl XLIV, but thereís one memory about the championship that hasnít escaped Reggie Bushís mind: how he felt when the confetti fell.

ď(Itís) that sigh of relief, the sense of accomplishment, everything youíve worked for your whole life,Ē Bush said Friday on NBCís Pro Football Talk. ďIt finally paid off. Itís the moment youíve dream of since you were a little kid, and now it came true. Itís a reality. Itís just a great feeling, and itís something youíll never forget.Ē

The Saintsí first-round draft pick in 2006 has a number of connections to Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday. Bush played at USC for Pete Carroll, now the Seattle Seahawksí head coach. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning used to be with the Colts, whom the Saints defeated in Super Bowl XLIV.

Bush ó who spent five seasons with the Saints before being traded to Miami ó was a huge part of New Orleansí lone Super Bowl title, accounting for a combined 1,050 receiving, rushing and punt-return yards as well as a total of 11 touchdowns, including the playoffs. He was with the Dolphins for 2011 and 2012 and spent 2013 with Detroit.

Detroitís incoming offensive coordinator is Joe Lombardi, who was in his first year as New Orleansí quarterbacks coach when the Saints won Super Bowl XLIV.

Bush on Friday told Pro Football Talk he pushed the Saints to trade him. At the time, he had forfeited his 2005 Heisman Trophy in the wake of an NCAA scandal ensnaring USC, and the Saints had drafted Mark Ingram out of Alabama in the first round.

ďIt was tough,Ē Bush said about asking for the trade from the Saints. ďJust the element of the unknown of going to a different team and having to adapt to a new environment, new teammates, new coaching staff, everything ó it was a little scary at first.Ē

Why do sports writers keep writing 'Saints lone Super Bowl title' instead of 'Saints first Super Bowl title'?

The term isn't used when writing about the Jets and Bucs!!

"Lone Super Bowl Win" it's like "Not you, the other idiot!"

I do miss watching Reggie run. When he was on, so much fun to watch. That Cardinals game, wow.

Yeah but I'll never forget him wanting to jump ship as soon as the RB competition came along.

^ Can't blame the guy for wanting to prove he could do it full-time. I'd say he's proven himself correct for the most part.

It would have cost us 12 million to keep him.

No way on earth he was worth that much.

Likeable guy, but trading him was without question the correct thing to do.

He danced way too much and from what I'm hearing Dolphin fans and Lion fans are not thrilled with his performance either.

Slo-mo might be able to shed some more light on it for us.

Toward the end I felt like he became the best 3rd down back in the league. But that's not worth the kind of money he wanted.

Beside that Sproles was, is, and will always be a better back.
