failed to live up to his height? YES

no way. He is one of those players that always has to be accounted for when hes on the field. Hes a straight up threat.

Bust? Hell no.

I don't see how you can call a guy who produces 800-1000 combined yards a season a bust.

He was picked way too high to produce as a situational/3rd down back, but he fits the Saints offensive system with Drew Brees.
He's not a bust but I think it's also safe to say what else he isn't that he was said to be coming out of college: Gale Sayers.

Also, if he's a bust, then I think all Alex Smith supporters have become ostriches with their heads in the dirt never ever seeing this thread.

If Bush is a bust, we need to invent a new word to describe what Alex Smith is.

If Bush put up the same numbers as a 9er and Frank Gore put up the same numbers as a Saint. This board would think Reggie Bush was 10x better. His injuries would be used as an excuse. Him sharing carries would be used as an excuse. Since the shoes aren't on the other foot. HERE WE ARE!

I say safe, because when I discuss this with friends, they get defensive.

He was picked number 2 overall, hasnt produced, and couldnt beat out pierre thomas and duece mccallsiter (sp?).

I mean, he hasnt done anything for a number 2 overall pick.

Yes I consider alex smith and vernon busts (but I still hope they can produce somehow)

Depends on the definition of bust. Is he a flat our failure? No but has he been the guy everyone thought he would be? Not at all. He's a good player for a team like the saints. To me he is a nice player to have but could easily win without him

Bush's best year: 565 rushing averaging 3.6 per carry and 700+ (8.4 per catch).

Gore's best year: 1695 rushing (5.4 per carry) 485 receiving (8 ypc)

Gore is the man, I look forward to seeing quite similar stats this yr. Except I don't think he will get more then 1400 rushing!
all i know is that when he played against us, he killed us.

And I believe it happened to be his break first break out game! Wasn't that before we got willis. The 2nd time he was pretty much kept under wraps by willis.
