The Search for Reggie Bush


Lumbergh

Recommended Posts

SC standout Reggie "the president" Bush is gonna be the 1st pick, no big deal. But, i'm not sure the texans need him. Dominick Davis has had a good season, and done his job. But the question is whether david carr is hurting the texans or not. I say yes, the man IS a bust. Face it houston fans, he's an overall bust. A wasted pick who has'nt done squat. Sure, you disect the little accomplishments, but who really cares about that one time he blah blah, and they won blah blah blah. He hasn't done squat. If you think he has, your in denial. But, it's okay. What would bush do for this team? The line sucks, horrible qb, terible coaching, crappy defense, slow special teams, the list goes on. I say they get leinart. They need a good passer to copliment an already good runner. The niners are in need of bush if anyone. Barlow is fading, and bush and smith already have known chemistry from high school, plus he fits in with the offensive shemes nolan runs in san fran. But who's even saying bush will be good? Look at the past: Ryan Leaf, Rashaan Salam, Jason White, etc. Guys who did amazing stuff in college, then faded away to other things. The race for bush will continue, but come'on, carr sucks ass.

David Carr can't hit any receivers when he's flat on his back. Before you write him off so glibly, let's give him a chance to play the game upright and behind a real O-line.

Reggie Bush looks like he's going to be a once-in-a-generation RB, like Barry Sanders, O.J. Simpson or Gale Sayers. That said, he is a horrible fit for the Texans. Consider:

1. If the O-line can't give David Carr 3 seconds to throw a pass, what makes you think they'll open even half a lane for Reggie Bush?

2. Dominick Davis is a very good back on a very bad team. Reggie Bush won't make them markedly better when the other parts are in such bad need of upgrading.

3. The Texans can more or less auction off the #1 pick if they lose Sunday. And they can basically stock up with enough young talent and/or prospects that they'll get more for letting him go somewhere else. There'll always be a buyer. The Cowboys would never have become the Cowboys had the Vikings not made the Herschel Walker deal. The Redskins benefitted from the Saints' love of Ricky Williams.

He better have good genes to pass on to his sons, because he very well may end up as the Archie Manning of this generation.

Think about it. Manning could've been a Pro Bowl QB, it's just he was a part of the god-awful Aints and wasn't able to do anything with his receiving corps because his O-Line was so weak.

So yeah, take it easy on Carr. When you sacked more times in a week than some QBs are the ENTIRE YEAR, you just can't do jack crap. And I place the blame on the general management. They have known about the weakness of the offensive line for years now, yet have done barely anything to do it. For crying out loud, the best offensive linemen they ever had didn't even play a game.

Thanks for noticing, 49erfan. Yes, I did disagree.

Your original premise, m&l, was that David Carr is a flop. My counterposition, evidently shared by everyone who's responded to your original post thus far, is that it's unfair to say Carr is a bust when he's spent his entire NFL career behind a porous offensive line. No QB could succeed in Houston right now with no help up front, and were Carr on a different team, he'd lilkely be far better than what he's been able to show while with the Texans.

So... were we all that convincing that you're retracting your original comment, or did you just not read what I/we wrote? :wacko:
