    Reggie Bush Could Be A Matchup Problem For Us

    Did anyone else watch the first half of the fish game? Bush is probably the most dangerous receiving option at RB in the league and the fins new OC has been using him quite a bit. This guy could be a major pain in the ares for us.

    Put in an extra DB who we can use to cover Bush or blitz the QB. End thread.

    Not a bad idea, it would leave us more vulnerable to the run though.

    I'm not gonna pretend to know all the nuances of stopping a Reggie Bush-type player, but he's back there with Henne now, not Brees -- I gotta think that's gonna help allow us to put more of a focus on him . . .

    That's fair. I know its only preseason, but he had no trouble finding him today. We seemed to have trouble covering RB's and TE's last year.

    ...with our LBs. Also, in a kind of funny way, if Maybin makes the team he would be the first LB we have who could probably cover Bush.

    Maybin? I'll be happy if the guy can sniff a few qb's. I don't think he's ever been known for his man coverage ability.

    When the Jets played the Saints in '09, was Bush in that game? If so, IIRC, he was apparently limited in his effect.

    The real point is you are giving him too much credit. Bush could barely find a team to play for this year. if he was so good, the saints would have kept him. The guy doesn't translate in the NFL. He has speed and that's it.

    Bush was traded. So was never not on a team. Far from not bring able to find a team to play for. He was only traded because he was making too much. They asked him to take a cut he said no. The guy is a viable pro just not the elite back some thought he'd be. He is a very good scat back and a good return man as well. I expect him to fare about the same as Ronnie Brown did in Miami. Brown was well over rated just like Bush and they are very similar players.

    Yeah but that was only with the Saints not the fins.

    Is this the least of our worries or what?:rolleyes:

    Plus he gets jittery when hit and Henne isn't a good enough qb to maximise his potential with limited velocity and accuracy on his passes. I think Bush is overrated

    Reggie is no Pierre Thomas.
    And did you watch some of the hits Reggie Bush took in the pre-season game last night? I was like, man dude is gonna get hurt.
    But he did play angry. I think he mad bro cause his ho' is marrying an NBA player.

    which superbowl contender team was it that Dreggie looked so really good against in a meaningless preseason scrimmage against last night??

    oh, never mind --- I just checked

    that would be the sensational 1-15 Carolina Toothless Panthers......

    Maybe I am, but he was traded so it wasn't like he was a free agent. He doesn't translate to the NFL? He's Leon Washington with more speed and better hands.

    Trust me, we don't want to put Cromartie on Marshall. You don't remember what happened when we had to do that last year? It doesn't end well for us.

    We need to make him stay in to block, then they'll replace him.
