Don't Count on ESPN Telling You This...

...but Reggie Bush had a grand total of 33 "all-purpose yards" against the Redskins yesterday: seven carries for 14 yards, five catches for 19 yards and zero return yards.

Bush's best game on the ground was in Week One against Cleveland (67 yards), and the #2 overall pick has had exactly three games on the season with more than 50 yards rushing (average 30 yards per game). Five of his six TDs (83%) and 256 of his 706 yards receiving (36%) came in his two outstanding performances against San Francisco and Dallas in Weeks 13 and 14, respectively. Take out those two games, and Bush has averaged 2.97 yards per carry, 28.75 yards rushing per game, 5.75 catches for 37.5 yards per game and 0.083 TDs per game. Don't forget that this has been with Joe Horn and Marques Colston at receiver, Deuce McAllister in the backfield and Drew Brees behind center. Are you sure that Bush's impact on the Texans' offense would have been all that noticeable?

Thank you for saying what few in the local or national sports media notice or willfully ignore.

I noticed. Freaking Bush was a no show for what should have been an easy Fantasy Football playoff victory - I hate Reggie Bush.
