I think it's just more of a way to both keep Bush fresh, and maximize the talent he has (White is too good a player to keep sitting on the bench). By the time you factor in his rushing, receiving, and returning Bush is still touching the ball 20-30 times a game.
You also have to take into account that 20 carries are a lot more tiring when those 20 go for 200 yards
RBBCs arent generally considered great players in the NFL.
It didn't seem to affect Ronnie Brown or Caddy's draft stock, and they both got fewer touches per game than Bush is getting.
