I see Bush being more like the Michael Vick of RB's. If you can contain him to the inside yuo will kill his big play ability. I think Parcells has already shown most people how to play him. Maybe I am wrong. Time will tell, It just seems like all of his big runs are to the outside.


He had 4 carries...I don't think Parcells "figured him out". Bush's last two plays were a 9 yard run and an 11 yard catch. If anything, Bush figured Parcells out.

Watch Bush's first preseason game and you'll see a number of times where he ran right into the heart of the defense and got tough, tough yardage.

Personally I hope his career fizzles out or he pulls some kind of Ryan Leaf implosion... Either that or Peppers rings his bell.

Sorry guys I'm a panthers fan, so I HAVE to hate the guy- no hard feelings.

Sure are a lot of haters out there. Maybe it's a backlash from the puke that espn spews. Remember people espn has morphed from the leader in sports to the used car salesman in sports. They are scarcely more that shills for whatever the next sensation their polls say is coming.

That doesn't take away from Bush's ability. It just makes it easier to hate because espn has already annointed him the next greatest thing ever. Don't listen to espn, they sold out. Think for yourselves.

As for Bush. I think the comparisons to Sanders are unjust. There is no other Sanders. He did things that no one else would have ever thought to do, let alone been able to do. Bush is the total package. I see him running well up the middle. He looks for blocks and holes and doesn't waste a lot of time waiting before getting as many yards as are there. His outside running skills look to be as good as anyone, maybe better. Plus he is a skilled receiver for someone his age. The only thing he needs is experience. He looked like he was forcing it to the outside last night instead of waiting for the chance to arise. But he'll learn.

Bush will be a top RB within two years.

Well I guess I will add my two cents since I spent the time reading these post. I think Bush just looks a step faster then everyone on the field. He is going to have to learn to run more inside but I think that by 2008 the guy is going to be a stud. I think he will have a decent year this year and start putting up top 5 numbers for years to come.

it depends, if Deuce goes down sometime early or well I guess it doesn't exactly even have to be early, but for fantasy value it would be nice, which I expect to happen, than he will shine and everyone will say ooh, aah, and he will start next year and they will trade deuce and he will get a big salary in new york for the jets and blow out his knee again, and everyone will laugh at the jets for makin' another stupid trade, and then reggie's dominant career will be well underway, easy first rounder next couple years IMO. ;-D

The Saints are going to adjust the play-calling in the regular season to utilize these strengths, which is why I see Deuce scoring 8 - 10 TDs this year as they will use him as a short-yardage, goal-line type runner, with Reggie being the home run guy.


Deuce could barely squeeze off 8TDs when he was healthy and getting every carry, expecting that many or more in a limited role coming off an ACL injury is quite optimistic.


He had 16 in his first year as a starter.
And Deuce would be probably the most expensive short yardage back in the history of the league if thats how they were planning on using him. I would see Bush being more of a rover on offense playing RB and WR and getting around 12 carries and 5 catches a game until Deuce (getting about 12-15 carries) moves on.


That was a long time ago, and I think it's safe to say that both Deuce and the Saints have changed a whole lot since then. Each of the years after that he's struggled to get up around that 8-10 mark. Coming off the ACL I would put Deuce's super-top ceiling numbers at 8-10 TDs even if Reggie Bush had never come to town, so now cutting his carries by 100-200 I can't imagine why people are expecting it when it was his ceiling when he was in a significantly better situation.

Deuce is done in New Orleans. It's as easy as that.

No Offense, but I could run on the Titans this year....

What is the average YPC against the Titans during the Pre-Season?

I just think he will be highlight reel one week and a no-show the next.
