Go back and watch the first TD pass of the game. Bush went in motion from the WR spot behind Brees. The ball is snapped and Brees fakes a pitch to him. All three LB's bit on the fake, Brees rolled out the other direction and hit a wide open Colston. Even when he's not breaking plays, he still messes up the defense.

You can actually see the safety bite too, which opens up Colston between the DBs.

i wish people would understand this aspect of his game. if he can get involved in the backfield, like his rookie year, it is only going to mean HUUUUUUUUGE things for the offense. the defense has to respect his talent and shadow him when he is in the game which opens up whatever look drew wants to take. i would like to see him do a little more north and south on the return game.

I've seen this argument about 5 times since yesterday. Who's to say they wouldn't have done the same for P. Thomas though??

Just saying...

Yep noticed it while watching with a buddy. I want to see Bush get more carries with a fullback in front of him. Those stretch the Defense pitch,toss, sweep plays, I don't care for. I want to see Reggie get past the LOS and into the secondary, right up the gut like he did Sunday. The more carries he gets like that the more confidence he will gain and the better he will get.

In the two reg season games, anyone know how many plays (if any) had both Reggie and Bell in the backfield, and what happened on these plays? I can't remember of any.. This has to open things up for one or the other. I wish we'd see this more to improve our running game.

Get outta here!!

No offense to PT, but defenses scheme around Reggie. His presence alone is a huge distraction for defenses...

I called touchdown as soon as I saw Bush go in motion. I just knew that it was going to be a fake toss and so I looked at the WR at the bottom, saw Colston and said touchdown. He was WIIIIDE open too.

I remember this happening with McCarthy, after a while you can pick up the tendancies of plays under the same play caller.

Some people just don't get it and want to discount anything Bush does for our team. Come on man give him credit when credit is due.

Whatever. I'm not saying they don't. But when it comes to Reggie, we grasp for straws in order to prove his worth to the team. Do we do that with any other player? No.

Reggie's 25-yard reception along the sideline with YAC was more impressive to me because that set up a TD before the half. That plus his tremendous blocking yesterday proved that Reggie belonged on the field.

His punt returns? Not so much. :1zhelp:

Or some people don't call a spade a spade. Bush is important to this team, don't get me wrong. But we're fine with or without him.

I think Buffalo can be a breakout game for him though. I'm pretty pumped to see him in action with the way he finished in Philly. His confidence should be sky-high. :9:

the final outcome of a play doesn't always make the play more impressive necessarily....We'll just have to disagree, but a play that occupies 4 defenders is IMO more impressive than a catch and run...even if the first one was a play FOR someone else and the 2nd was your own.

do you watch college basketball? did you happen to see or at least see highlights of Stephen Curry (Davidson) play against Loyola last season? They double teamed him the entire game...The team won 78-48...Curry was scoreless......but I guess you would say that he had little to do with the team's win...and I would say he had a lot to do with it.
