When Reggie Bush entered the NFL four year ago, it was presumed that he’d be the next Gale Sayers.
Today, Bush finally became Gale Sayers.
Bush has performed today in a way rarely, if ever, seen since he was running circles around Fresno State defensive backs.
With an 83-yard punt return from Bush, the Saints have built a 45-14 lead, a margin that likely will be insurmountable for a Cardinals team that has managed only seven points since Tim Hightower’s 70-yard touchdown run to start the game.
Bush also has 84 yards rushing on five carries (including a 54-yard touchdown), and 16 yards receiving on three catches.
That’s 183 total yards — and the Saints would be wise to hold at that number, saving Bush for next weekend against the Cowboys or the Vikings.
