Re: Reggie Bush

From what I've seen of him going to Miami then Detroit, a change of scenery initially does him good, but he slips back into east/west mode once he gets comfortable ... maybe give him a one year deal, cut him, sign him to another one-year deal, cut him again, et ... .

Define his role, use him sparingly, get him cheap ... he wanted to be the lead dog in Detroit but couldn't take the punishment, #shrug.

Re: Reggie Bush

I just remember the scowl on Payton's face during the second half of that Seahawks playoff game. And Reggie Bush was standing next to him on the sidelines, with his helmet off and this hangdog sad look on his face, and Payton was clearly like I'M IGNORING YOU BRO, DON'T KNOW YOU. That was the also game where the TV camera showed Payton's playsheet, over his shoulder, for a split second, and you could see all the Reggie plays scratched out with a Sharpie. Plays that couldn't be run without him in the lineup.

I think Loomis or Carmichael or some of the other coaches or scouts or staff may want to take a look at Reggie, it's entirely possible. It'd be a great move for the front office, for the low-info fan base and selling tickets, especially the secondary market -- all those '09 Super Bowl nostalgia fans pouring back into the Dome via Stubhub or whatever. Buying beer, rebuying jerseys, all that Super Bowl year nostalgia that Champions Square and the Saints PR machine hypes so well. I could see that.

But everything I saw in Payton's mojo and vibe, in 2010, sounded like he was done with Reggie. Payton has mentioned that Reggie wanted more of a feature role, as his main reason for his leaving....but remember when Payton really REALLY needed Reggie, to be that workhorse feature back, in the end of the 2010 season and ESPECIALLY in the second half against Seattle in 2010, he was not there.

I mean JUST IMAGINE, just for fun, if instead of the infamous "Beastquake" moment with no tackling, what if we had a Reggie razzle-dazzle run for a TD, in the 2nd half of that playoff game? Could have easily ended up, Final Score: Saints 43, Seahawks 34.

Re: Reggie Bush

Of course the idea of having a "role player" is all predicated on said player willing to play within said role.

If Reggie would commit to coloring within the lines he could be valuable.

Spiller to me has more upside, long term value.
