Some in the media were so quick to count Reggie Bush out. But after last weeks performance against the Bucs, Reggie finally get some props from the media.

Reggie Bush's 42-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter lifted the New Orleans Saints over the Tampa Bay Bucs, 24-20, in an NFC South clash. Bush compiled 163 yards of total offense, 51 on the ground and 112 receiving, for the Saints.

Speaking of players from the Class of 2006, how about Reggie Bush? After being maligned for a disappointing sophomore season last year with the New Orleans Saints, the running back established himself in the opener against Tampa Bay as the dynamic force he had mostly been as a rookie. He repeatedly made the sort of difference-making plays that the Saints were counting on when they made him the second overall pick of the draft. And, yes, he did most of his damage as a receiver rather than as a runner, but so what? The Saints thrive when Bush makes big plays with the ball in his hands, regardless of how it gets there. He looks faster and more explosive than ever. He also is clearly thriving from the presence of his new teammates on both sides of the ball. Tight end Jeremy Shockey brings immense receiving talent that defenses must respect, and that helps open up things for Bush and others. The Saints' defensive upgrades also paid off against the Bucs, with several newcomers making huge plays that went a long way toward determining the outcome. And that, too, positively impacted the production of Bush and the rest of the offense.
