Payton was asked about Bush's fumbling woes on Monday but the coach quickly defended him, deflecting the attention from Bush to the rest of the team. "It's an issue when we turn the ball over with whoever turns it over," Payton said. "It's not just with Reggie Bush, it's with whoever is carrying or protecting the football and understand how important that statistic is in winning and losing."
<o></o>
Nevertheless, ball security problems have been an issue for Bush. He fumbled ea team-high eight times in 2007 and already has fumbled a team-high three times this season.


Scott later got into a verbal exchange with Payton after <st1:state w:st="on"></st1:state> stopped the Saints on a fourth-and-1 in the second half. I asked Payton about the exchange on Monday and he deflected the query with a joke. "No, we were just talking about Southern Illinois and <st1>lace Eastern Illinois</st1> said Payton, an EIU alumnus. "He went to <st1>Southern Illinois</st1> He's a good player."




looks like the forum isn't the only place bush is getting talked about

Thnx for posting. I found this more interesting than reading more about Reggie (We all know where that will end up here on SR)

PRESSURE REPORT: The Saints stayed in their base 4-3 defense for the entire game. They mixed coverages and blitzes, using linebackers Jon Vilma, Scott Shanle and Scott Fujita to pressure the quarterback more than defensive backs. In all, the Saints blitzed 18 times on 58 Jets' snaps. Williams dialed up the pressure in the second half, sending safeties Roman Harper and Darren Sharper on blitzes a handful of time. Harper blitzed four times; Sharper once. The Saints disguised blitzes throughout the game in an attempt to confuse rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez. They would often line up eight defenders at the line, then rush just the four linemen. They brought the house on a second-and-10 late in the fourth quarter, sending eight players at Sanchez, who was swamped for a sack and 11-yard loss. Will Smith was credited with the sack but it just as easily could have gone to Sharper, Tony Hargrove or Sedrick Ellis. Both of the Saints' first-half sacks came on four-man rushes. Charles Grant got to Sanchez thanks to a deceptive Jets-like scheme by coordinator Gregg Williams, in which the Saints loaded the line of scrimmage with eight defenders, then dropped everyone into coverage except the four linemen. The tactic confused the Jets' protection and no one picked up Grant, who was unblocked on his way to the quarterback. Speaking of, Grant played his best game of the season. Not only did he have two sacks, but he made a nice play to break up a pass in the third quarter and was active against the run.

This is the kind of analysis Dierdorff, a former NFL lineman, should have been giving us during the game:

"If you want to see why the Saints are no longer considered a finesse offensive team watch their fourth play from scrimmage. Center Jon Goodwin and guards Carl Nicks and Jahri Evans make outstanding blocks to clear a path for Bush's 7-yard run. Evans stones All-Pro defensive tackle Kris Jenkins at the point of attack while Nicks and Goodwin blast linebackers Scott and David Harris at the second level, allowing Bush to slice off a nice gain. Nicks hit Scott with such force it knocked him back on his heels."

Reggie Bush will always be talked about whether good or bad, because he came in with such hype, but Payton is right, its about ball security not WHO fumbled the ball.
