    If we can sign him for fair tvalue or better, we absolutely should. He is an excellent example for the rest of the team; never makes waves, always works hard, accepts responsibility for his mistakes, and stays out of trouble off the field. Oh, and he can make 5-7 guys miss on a single play. I say pay him and play him... no more of this 12-15 carries, I want to see 20 carries a game.

    He is currently the "homerun" threat on the team. Only he and Tannehill are capable of scoring at any time in the redzone and only he from anywhere on the field. Hate we didn't figure out how to better utilize him throughout the year. He caught 80 balls with the Saints in a season. We do good to get him more than 30 in the passing game here...

    he has had 15 in two years, thats def not always. i still dont think bush should get more carries than miller next year. miller puts a foot down and goes, bush dances way to much in the backfield. dont get me wrong he is a homerun threat, but with more carries so is miller

    Last time I checked he tied a career high with 8 total touchdowns this year (rushing and receiving) if that constitutes as always scoring then this truly is a defense first league.....

    Well he is on a team that only averages two TDs a game.

    We are all aware of this, but he didn't score much more when he was on one of the highest scoring teams in the history of the league..... His highest TD total in a season is 9, not bad but I wouldn't say that's even better then average as a starting running back in the NFL

    We are all aware of this but both teams misused and/or underused him. And taken out of many a goaline opportunity. I know it can be said for a lot of guys but given touches he scores.

    I don't know if I would say he is underused, I will agree that we don't always use him the right way though. I just don't think he is worth big money. If he comes back for a reasonable deal I would be all for it. But with Lamar Miller on the squad I don't know how much longer we will really need Reggie. We have holes in our roster that really need to be filled and spending big on Bush to me wouldn't be our best option long term. Again with that being said I do like Reggie and what he has done for the fins since he has arrived here

    Bess, Hartline and Fasano have 16 total in the last 2 seasons. compared to Bush's 15. It would be wise to resign him.

    Wow he scores a whopping 6.28 TD per year. Sure can't give up an asset like that. :bs:

    I think you meant to say 20 TOUCHES a game. He needs the ball more in open field situations, if we can start to figure out how to use him in screens he could be lethal. Didn't see much of that this year. But I say keep him, dont overpay him but give him fair market value for a mid level starting RB. Hes not the problem, its how weve been using him IMO. Get him 12-15 carries and 5 or 6 receptions a game and he could be lighting it up.

    We should try to sign Reggie Bush to a reasonable contract

    Here are the big free agent running backs from last year with salary and production
    ($3.5M to Michael Bush was the biggest last year)

    Green-Ellis to Cincy for 3 year $9M contract ($3M per) 1198 yards from scrimage
    Bush to Bears for 4 year $14M contract ($3.5M per) 494 yards from scrimage
    Tolbert to Carolina for 4 year $8.4M contract ($2.1M per) 451 yards from scrimage
    Hillis to KC for 1 year $3M contract ($3M per) 371 yards from scrimage
    Benson to GB for 1 year 825K contract (825K per) 345 yards from scrimage
    Grant to GB for 1 year 700K contract (700K per) 161 yards from scrimage

    That should give us an idea about how much to offer.

    Dude scores TDs......................

    Yea, against Buffalo. Even Mark Sanchez does that.

    Of all of Bush's TDs the last 2 seasons, how many of them came vs. the Bills?

    3 of 12, so 25% of his TDs. Let's not forget the two amazing TDs vs those juggernaut raiders.

    Yes, this is exactly what I mean. I think this desire for him and the team to prove that he can run between the tackles is stupid. Just because he can run between the tackles (which he can) doesn't mean its the most effective way he should be used. We need more swing passes, screens, short passes... Line him up wide more, whatever, he just needs more touches and he needs more touches in space.

    I'd prefer a RB that can play well and score in any game, not just the absolute trash of the AFC, no matter how much "more important" those may be.

    I wasn't arguing your point/numbers, I was just saying those games against trash teams are important. He scored against 3 playoff teams also.

    Bush also seems to have a high rate of no gain plays. Of course some of it is the OL but I don’t think he has great vision. Miller seems to have better vision and runs with more authority. I’m all for resigning Bush but only to a reasonable contract. $5M per is too high IMO, especially if we don’t utilize him better.

    we might just get a hometown discount. if he reups for 4mill per, I say keep him. If he wants 5 or more a year, let him walk.
