LA Times article on Reggie...
...It's just that Bush can't make people miss in the NFL the way he did at USC, when he ran around and through defenders as if they were stalks of corn.
"I know it's got to be frustrating for him," said Eric Dickerson, who still holds the NFL rookie rushing record with 1,808 yards in 1983. "He's a talented player, and they expect a lot out of him. Sometimes it's hard to deliver."
There are several reasons Bush has yet to have a breakout game. Frequently, it looks as if he's hitting an opening too early, before the hole has developed. He hasn't gotten into a rhythm, either, with Deuce McAllister being the primary back. Also, the Saints have an offensive line that's better at pass protection than run blocking.
