More about Bush

Reggie, that is. If Bucky Brooks was trying to prove that Reggie Bush wasn't a bust, then he'd have done well to steer clear of this description:

Toward that end, Bush is a lot like former running back/receiver/kick returner Eric Metcalf (pictured at left), who ranks second on the all time list with 12 return touchdowns. The 13th pick of the Cleveland Browns in the 1989 draft, Metcalf never developed into a full- time running back in his 13-year career, but he earned three Pro Bowl berths as a returner and earned a reputation as one of the top multi-purpose players to play the game.
Sorry, but I saw lots and lots of Metcalf's games when he was in Cleveland. And I wouldn't have used a No. 2 or No. 13 pick on him. And that goes double for Bush.
