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!
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)
You can look at the BEST YEARS all you want. Add them all up and you get.
Gore 99 yards pg, 26 td's in 59 games
Bush 83 yards pg, 24 td's in 38 games
I'm not trying to compare Gore and Bush head to head. As they are two totally different kind of players.
All I was saying at 1st was. How can Gore be top 10 (in 9er land). Yet Bush is a bust? When total yards per game aren't too far off. But Bush has 2 less td's in a season and a 1/3 less games.
my 2nd argument was just showing the homerism on this site. Anyone who doesn't think this board would say Bush was better than Gore if teams were changed and production was the same. Is probably a homer like i'm talking about.
