Bye Bye Bush (Update pg. 4)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I wonder what Payton's reaction was to Bush leaving for the Dolphins? Payton: There goes our decoy. *grabs Bush's jersey and starts weeping hysterically*...

Honestly, what do I think Payton's reaction was? Well I vividly remember the look on Sean Payton's face during the second half of the Seahawks game, when Bush was on the sidelines with some (at the time) mysterious unspecified injury, and you could see Payton's playcalling card with all kinds of stuff literally scratched out on it with a Sharpie...and going into the game we had no other running backs to speak of, and all week long Reggie had been talking about how that was supposed to be his big breakout game, and his chance to shine in the spotlight and carry the load and finally be THE MAN and everything else... I kinda held my tongue about it at the time, didn't say anything much, but I knew in my gut Reggie was gone right then. Once you become invisible to Payton on the sidelines, you're history with him. It's happened to plenty of players: Joe Horn and Michael Lewis, for two examples. They just became invisible to Payton. I honestly think Payton has been more or less planning on a Reggie-less universe since that long flight home.

I wouldn't have been surprised if it wasn't already discussed internally in bits and pieces the year before. Everyone knew what he contract was going to be and we're a very well ran organization. Payton was a big say in personnel decisions and people were only fooling themselves into thinking he was really going to come back. If he was an absolute necessity for our offense, you bet we wouldn't have traded him over a mil or mil and half. They were well prepared... it's far from a shocking move.

If we had not won the Super Bowl, I think Reggie would have been gone last year.

I'll miss Reggie. We forget he helped to save the Saints & keep them in New Orleans. He scored a lot of touchdowns, and kept us on the highlight reel.

I'm sad to see Reggie go ONLY because I wanted to see him realize his potential in black & gold. I wish him luck in Miami.

Now I've stated this numerous times with little reaction - Reggie's knees are not healthy. He was scoped in the offseason and let's just say that there's a reason he only signed a two year deal.

Like the Drew Brees signing, we'll get the best of this deal.
