Reggie Bush: Overrated?

Will the New Orleans Saints high flying running back ever live up to the hype, or is he just playing the wrong position?

OZZIE :

Bush isn't overrated per se, I think most people have lowered their expectations since he was drafted and I think he fits pretty well into the role of a slot receiver or pitch and run style running back. He is not durable enough to be a up the gut runner, he is more like Brian Westbrook light.

Sour Note :

He just isn't big enough to be a serious pro running back. His speed has allowed him to overcome that size to some extent. But as his career goes on he will keep getting injured more and more. His speed will slow. In the end he will be remembered as at best lackluster, so yes he is overrated for a second pick in the draft. But for a little guy he's played very big.

yawn. Reggie's problem is he likes him some Reggie. Way likes him some Reggie. He's just too full of himself to ever reach that elite status that many thought he would coming out of USC. Big ego=Big bust.

I think the best part is that afterwords, he had to crawl to the sideline.

Anyway, Reggie Bush has never been an elite back. He's small, and elusive. He's certainly no Adrian Peterson. Not big enough, not strong enough.

He's an interesting footnote.
