Bush Makes His Debut With Flying Colors

To Reggie Bush’s credit, he handled the throng of media like he handled the Browns defense on Sunday afternoon – with precision. Answering each question with tought as well as with solid answers, Bush was calm and cool after Sunday’s 19-14 win over the Browns that began the 2006 season for the Saints. “I would probably give myself a ‘B,'” he said. “I didn’t get in the end zone,” Bush said after the game. For a team that lost their last five games in 2005, the Saints came out with their new superweapon on Sunday and made the plays when they had too, and handed the Browns what is already being looked at as a shocking home loss for a team that was supposed to be ready to make strides this season.For Bush, he did not crack the end zone, but did have some niffty catches, and helped out the offense with 61 yards rushing and 58 yards recieveing. Each time that he touched the ball, the fans at Browns Stadium held their breath and knew that at any moment, anything could have happened. While he didn’t break the big one, you could sense that he will and very will could at anytime. For the Saints, they play the hapless Packers next, and unless they lay a big egg, the team should be at 2-0 as they get set for their big primetime showdown aganist the Falcons in two weeks. For Bush, it was a solid debut for a player that should have many big days to come.
