    He hasn't showed durability to carry the ball 20+ times but, with a reliable back with him Bush would be that breakout guy every team needs!

    I was just about to bring up Emmitt

    noone ever knows about a RB

    it doesn't matter how durable or fragile a RB may seem , you just never know till you get him into an NFL situation

    Everyone here should be thankful that we had a back like Eddie George that only missed a handful of games during his ENTIRE career. You may never see that durability in a RB EVER again

    so, adjust your expectations accordingly

    RB's are the biggest risk / reward position
    with QB's being a close second


    hell, lets just trade back a bit so we don't subject ourselves to risk


    NAH..... it ain't our money
    let's get one of these 2 guys in my sig :brow:

    those two were very small, compact runners. they were both about 5'10" and 215 lbs. bush is about 6'1" 205lbs.

    barry sanders had calfs the size of my thighs. emmit smith had great balance and got a lot of yards after contact.

    reggie bush is an unbeleivable athlete, but thats about it. the only tackles he breaks are arm tackles. he doesnt get a whole lot of yards after contact.

    He's saying that IF Young and Leinart are gone THEN Bush is the bpa. QBs still have more "value" than RBs.

    Bush isn't Brian Westbrook.

    he's the same type of player. he's more talented, but he's the same type of player.

    Same mold, correct, but more talented, also correct, which is why he's in top 3 contention.

    He's got more potential with already amazing production. If he was Westbrook alone, I would agree, but he's like SuperWestbrook.

    so is LaDainion Tomlinson
    and Tiki Barber
    and Marshall Faulk
    and Edgerrin James

    I'd musch rather have any of those dudes than CB / TH
    no offense to CH / TH, but neither are quite as spectacular

    coincidentally, we currently have TWO dudes 'trying' to accomplish what Bush 'may' be able to. Noone since LT2 has come out with his talent

    again, @ #3 if it were down to Reggie Bush, D'Brick or AJ then IMO the choice is obvious - you pick Bush - risks be damned

    RB's are the highest risk/reward position in the league
    they also have one of the shortest lifespans
    BUT, they are also harder to find quality-wise
