    Player Bush most likely gone

    Bush is most likely going elsewhere so it will be Lamar Miller and maybe a draft pick along with Thomas. Pretty much what many here is anticipating.

    They're checking heavily into some high profile tailbacks...so this is not that surprising, though a shame, in a way.

    Sucks if true, our offense is pathetic when he's not involved.

    That's a shame, he was under-utilized if anything this year. I would have found a way to sign him.

    Maybe he should have just stayed out of it when Ocho was busy ruining his career.

    I want bush back hard to let him go. But i can not argue with the brass not breaking the bank for him. I feel like if reggie wants to be here he will stay and take a good fare deal. I fear he may want a pay day so it is very much 50/50 on weather reggie will be in a fin jersey ever again. Stay tuned!

    He has been very productive for us the past few seasons, however he is a RB, and he will be 28 this year. RBs have a tendency to drastically drop off once they reach 30. So this is where it becomes dangerous, he might only have 1 good year left. Do we gamble on a 3 yr deal with him, or do we cut ties and go with a youth movement at the position. Honestly, I think Lamar Miller is going to be ready to be a starter next year, so I say let Bush go and start Miller.

    MILLER was mediocre at best last season. Deal w/it! He's no R BUSH.

    Miller was only "mediocre" because he wasn't really used a lot last season. 250 yards rushing and one touchdown I guess is mediocre if you were expecting him to put up big numbers as a rookie. As a pro we really don't have a big sample size to really say if he is going to be as good or even better than Reggie Bush. He only had 51 carries while Reggie had 227 so of course he was "mediocre" in comparison.

    The encouraging aspect of Miller from last year is that he mostly shined when his number was called. Bush is a dancer who can break off a 60 yard run or will get stuffed for negative yards. Miller seems to get the ball and just hits the opening without much hesitation. He also averaged just about 5 yards per carry so the signs are there that he has good potential. If Bush leaves via free agency there is no doubt in my mind that Miller, not Thomas, will be the #1 back in 2013. He is also only 21 years old.

    Regardless if Bush stays or goes, Miller will light-it-up in 2013.

    I bet one of our second round picks gets used on a RB now. All we have now is Miller and an approximation of a RB in Thomas. Thomas is the Spam of running backs. He kind looks like a running back and tastes like a running back, but in the end he's not really a running back.
    Insert pithy saying here.
