Is Bush a non contributor? No.
Anyone who calls Reggie a bust is clearly a hater....which is fine, there is nothing wrong with wanting everyone to know that you knew he wasn't worth the hype but come on, there are far too many guys drafted in the first round or even top 5 who contribute(d) absolutely nothing to their team....no way Bush gets lumped in with those folks.
I just consider bust of whether that guy was worthy of the selection for what he has contributed, that's just how i see it
a "complete bust" for me is a bust to you, guess i just have 2 different definitions of bust
I guess I just need to express how much different the 2 situations are. Complete Busts actually hold your team back for years, where as the busts as you put it merely present a bump in the road. To me the difference between effects are so great they deserve their own label altogether.
Vernon Davis kind of makes me a little mad
Manny Lawson kind of makes me a little mad
Alex Smith makes me want to jump off a cliff.
To me you have to take into account what a pick does to a fan base also. I have never met a Saint fan that is really pissed about Reggie, and clearly he has not held the Franchise back
