Reggie Bush has been one of the Saints’ most high-profile players during this three year NFL career, according to New Orleans Times-Picayune beat writer Mike Triplett.
Triplett believes that might have led some writers and fans to take — what he believes — are unfair shots at Bush. Triplett even asserts that Bush might be underrated at this point:
- Obviously, Bush fits somewhere in the middle between those two labels. He clearly hasn’t gotten the most out of his potential, and he might never prove worthy of the No. 2 overall pick in the draft. I think he needs to continue to improve his approach to the game. But I still think he’s one of the top three or four most valuable players on the Saints’ roster.
- I’ve said for years now that if Bush was just drafted in the late first round instead of No. 2 overall, he’d be an overwhelming fan favorite without the overwhelming skepticism and negativity.
