Will Reggie Bush return kicks?

Postby Captain Jack Sparrow » Tue Sep 05, 2006 11:04 am

My league has a separate special teams position and I'm looking for an edge. Difficult position to predict!

Pretty sure he should do both kick and punt returns.

I sincerely doubt Reggie Bush will return kicks and punts all season if at all. He is just too valuable. And returning kicks is a good way to get your valuable players hurt.

Agreed. I still say he get 20 touches in all games this year, though ;-D

You are crazy. The Saints would be stupid if they did not let the guy return kicks. The more times he touches the ball, the better.

I think he will be both the kick returner and punt returner, unless he fumbles or does something stupid.

Having the new face of your franchise who you've invested millions in guaranteed money in return punts and kicks is what's crazy. Kensat's right, that's a wiz-bang way to get your "golden boy" hurt.

Well I'm telling you guys straight up, he's going to return kicks this year.

Deuce did it his rookie year, and he didn't get hurt. Steve Smith did it last year (punts). Rod Smith has done it his whole career.

I didn't say he wouldn't, just that I agree with Kensat that it's a bad idea.

I can't help but believe that the first time Bush gets clocked waiting for a kick to arrive will be the last time he returns kicks. He is just too valueable for them to risk the punishment.

Joe Thiesman was a return man as a rookie because he didn't want to sit on the bench - look what happened to him from too many shots to the head!!! :-B
