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.
Yep, remember that a lot too. Will never forget it. Just can't get excited about him. Can he still play, yes, but he is over 30... ehhh

Dude how bad did we need Reggie end of 2010? JULIUS JONES, that's how bad

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

Spiller to me has more upside, long term value.
Spiller is young still, not a lot of tread off his tires. Plus he had a broken collar bone last season, nothing with his knees etc

Re: Reggie Bush

Give me the cheaper of the two...same type of player...and he's not going to feature so give me the cheapest one and spend the rest on a DT/NT, OG, or ILB
