    I cannot agree with you more

    Reggie Bush is surely an exciting prospect

    Let's see how many hits he can take from linebackers with 4.4 speed or 220lb safeties looking to take his head off

    Just say NO to the next product of the NCAA Hype Machine (READ: Michael Vick)

    You might consider that all of these players save two, are Quarterbacks. QBs handle the ball every play or 75 plays or so per game. They are the Offense all by themselves. A RB is lucky to touch it 25 times a game, or one third the time, and 1/6 of the plays in the game.. Reggie Bush? No thank you.

    I'm not advocating for the Pats to trade up for Bush. But he is being talked about about like he'll be the next Leeland McElroy. This guy does some amazing things on the field. He won't be a work horse because of his size and he doesn't run between the takles. But Houston has Domanick Davis to do that. He also has great hands as a receiver and returns kicks as good as anyone. He is a threat to go all the way every time he touches the ball. It may be a cliche but it surely applies in this case.I know he had a great OL and Lendale White was a much tougher runner and could possibly have a better future. However, if anyone is going to take a beating on the field it will be White more so than Bush. As I stated before, he reminds me of Barry Sanders with more speed. He's not as elusive, (who is?), but it's tough to get a good hit on him. Unless he comes out in the flat and the QB hangs him out to dry, he will not get pounded like some other backs who constantly run between the takles and dish out punishment themselves (see: Corey Dillon, the Bus, etc.). I wouldn't trade up to get him but I can't wait to see him in the NFL. You know Gary Kubiak will get him an OL that can run block, maybe not this year but definately next.

    Exactly. Like a guy named Kevin Faulk. Very good player, will stick around for a long time, but not a guy I want to draft #1.

    Faulk = Bush? You've been into the Kool-aid jar again, haven't you?

    Marshall Faulk is a better comparison.

    I'm comfortable saying his career will be somewhere in between the two.
