A Work Horse & A Show Pony

THE WORK HORSE & THE SHOW PONY

10 Games into the ‘Reggie Bush as a full time NFL runnngback’ experiment and one thing is clear…..he’s not!
I’ll be the first to admit I was wrong.

I thought Reggie would thrive. I thought he was going to remined us of Tiki Barber and that we’d be able to see flashes of LaDainian Tomlinson.

But Reggie ain’t Tiki or LT…..heck, he ain’t even Maruice Jones-Drew!
And their are no excuses for Reggie.
He’s not being asked to carry the Saints, just play a role.

He’s got a great quarterback, a solid offensive line, and a smart head coach.

Reggie is what he is….a show pony.

Look, I don’t mean that as a bad thing.

Last year this show pony played an important role and provided us with amazing highlights.

But for every show pony you need a great work horse.

Deuce McAllister is that work horse.

Maybe I’m the eternal optimist but I truly believe that next year…..with Bush and a healthy McAllister back in their 2006 roles the Saints will thrive again!
