Well, who has been keeping track of the "Reggie is not going anywhere" crowd so that the "I told you so"s can begin.

Actually they're not as bad as it seems. They drafted Pouncey, Jake Long is All Pro, Carey is solid, and Incognito is a decent interior lineman. Now if they can get Orton to go along with Bush, Thomas, Fasano, Brandon Marshall... they have the makings of a solid offense. I can see him catching 50 balls easily. Running wise, I have no idea what to expect since Thomas is expected to be their pound guy.

Hahaa! I will say this, last night I was thinking he's gone and likely going to Miami. If I'm lying I'm dying. I really wanted him to stay. I think he's making a big mistake. Short term he'll get top dollar but long term no telling what it may cost him. He's going to get pounded in Miami as a featured back.

I haven't read everyone's post yet. I would assume no one is bitter against Bush or anything. This is good news.
I was just checking my emails on yahoo and saw the report on yahoo.sports.
AP Source: Dolphins trade for Bush - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
I know someone psoted thisone.
I am only reading this link. I am not reading the other 10, whatever number links out there.
I don't care.
I don't care to read them all and I am happy he is leaving.
The guy is not happy here anymore. He has had some injuries. He has his career and wants to make the most money he can before he retires.
It is just business is business.
Bush won and earned a SB ring here. He did earn it. He was a major factor of the team winning that SB.
Last year, he was injured a lot, is older, and he doesn't want to be here. Fine. If he wants to go, good. If he feels his future , financially and otherwise , is with another NFL team, fine.
From a Saints fan point of view and I am hardly an expert, the team needs to find a younger FB, one who wants to be here, can be molded into the current coach and teams' plan. In other words, the team needs someone new as well. Someone less costly. I think it is good Bush is leaving.
Different take from me about his leaving.

I was hoping we could restructure his contract and bring him back. When he was healthy, our offense was much more dangerous than when he was on the sidelines. I wish him the best and I'm glad he's not playing for a team in our division. Guess it's time I change my avatar...

Now, I went to read others' posts.
Yeah, most of us are fine with it for all of the reasons you all listed.

It could be as simple as moving now from the little fish in the big pond (Saints) to the big fish in a little pond (Dolphins)!

He knew his touches were going to be limited with the Saints...whereas his touches with Miami could provide him a greater opportunity in his next contract!

Loomis once said...turnover is approximately 25% each year. This year
Bush was in that number!
