    what a weird scenario.

    guy is a beast out of the backfield and on returns, but wow 29 yards on 12 carries? really? they need more than that from their 2nd overall pick. is he a semi bust?

    weird..i can't put my finger on it.

    Bush also had 7 receptions for 67 yards.

    peterson has had great games in the past though. GREAT games. and he'll have great games in the future, i hope. bush, though, i don't know. i think they'd trade in his great pass catching abilities if he was a better runner.

    but true that there are plenty teams that could use him. and he's a beast in madden.

    i guess he's not a bust, but he's not who the saints thought they were getting. they thought they were getting someone to help in the running game at least a LITTLE. he's good though.

    he splits carries with two other backs.

    hes a threat in the backfield and a great decoy.

    so great that they've won 2 games. he should be their number one back but he cant be relied on for more than 13-15 carries. anything other than that is out of the question. that's one of the reasons he can be considered a bust.

    The way he's going he could end up being the all-time leading receiver among RB's, for what it's worth.

    I definitely wouldn't call him a bust, but he is a slight disappointment. He's just in his third season, but as a runner, he really hasn't shown much that would lead us to say "He'll DEFINITELY become a top 25 RB of all time" as we were saying in college. Many analysts and fans were saying "He'll easily be a top 5 NFL RB of ALL TIME," just because he was so amazing there.

    I don't get it though...many people who knocked him in college are "happy" now, because they always said "he's great in college, but that doesn't mean he'll be great in the NFL"...well that can be said about any college player in my opinion. With Reggie, I do think his style of running was a bit more tailored for college than the NFL, but I thought he'd still become a better runner than he is.

    However...as noted, he's done enough with receiving and returns to still be valuable...and his head is on straight. You won't hear any Ricky Williams or Pac Man type stories about him. Well...he was a USC Heisman running back who has a thing for white girls....ahh, nevermind.

    As far as being a running back goes? Yes. He's CLEARLY a bust.

    but a lot of us knew he wouldn't be a great every-down back in the NFL.



    He's great at punt returns, but fuck...anyone with decent vision and speed with great blocking is - See: Devin Hester. Dude sucks anywhere else on the field.



    and - you don't draft #2 in the nfl draft to get a guy to "backup" an often injured Duece McAllister.
