Just throwing this out there as I thought it might be a good discussion before we get to training camp. I have seen Maroney play a lot more than Bush, but leading up to the draft I think we all saw plenty of his highlights. I think the one big plus that Bush was recieving over all the other top RB's was his ability to catch the ball. I really think that people will be suprised at how well Maroney does in this aspect of the game. While he never really was a huge factor in the passing game in college, the catches that he was involved in were anything but simple. He made a few catches that would rival some really good catches by top WR's in college. So here is how these 2 break down Reggie Bush: Positives: Speed, Vision, Hands, initial burst, pass blocking, kick return Negatives or Concerns: Rushing Power, Durability Laurence Maroney: Positives: Speed, Vision, Patience, Rushing Power, kick return Negatives or Concerns: Pass Blocking, Hands (although my personal opinion is that this will be one of his biggest positives) Overall, I think Bush probably comes into the NFL with more natural talent, but they are going to completely different situations. Bush is going to a team that overall is not very good, and the few players they do have with talent is a young running back named McAllister. The Saints have a new coach that will try to learn and teach at the same time. Maroney is coming to a team where he will get excellent coaching, a better offensive line, and while Dillon is a talented back, he will be willing to help Maroney learn the ropes and share the load a little better then McAllister will be able to help Bush. What are your thoughts on this? Am I crazy.
