    barber, james, and LT all have the ability to break tackles. bush doesnt. he's fast as hell, but thats about it.

    faulk was great, but his size cut his career short in my opinion.

    listen, you gotta get the guy in camps and beef him up with weights

    and who says he has to 'break' tackles if he runs past them

    WTF? brian westbrook? how in any way are they similar. fast? thats about it.
    why cant he carry the load? why does everyone say this? because of the system he was in in college?.. used brilliantly IMO where he or lindale always would have plenty in the tank at the end of any game.
    because he's too light?
    isn't marshall faulk too light to be a good running back then?
    what about tiki barber?
    wasn't barry sanders kinda small?
    wasn't walter payton on the light side of 200?
    Bush is one of those unique guys that no matter what defenses have to account for him... that alone makes him worth the pick.

    sorry it took me a while to post that.
    but i think he does run with power when he needs to. he's just so fast he doesnt really have to.
    forearm shivered a guy on the sidelines at the rose bowl that was much larger than he is.
    barry didnt run with power. marshall doesnt either.

    Nah, that forearm shiver only got him two extra yards and it was a cornerback who had just gotten off a block of the WR and was standing straight up. It was a good move, but I don't really count that for all of the reasons listed.
