We have already touched on Bush's ability to score any time he gets the ball, but think about everything else he brings to the table. He is a type of player that has to be accounted for every time that he is on the field. That is what he was known for while playing in New Orleans: being a distraction.
Statistically, this is one of Reggie Bush's best years of his career. He is averaging four-and-half yards a carry, second most in his career, and he has more rushing yards now than all of last year. Bush needs only 246 more yards this season to match his career best of 581, set in 2007.
Reggie Bush has also managed to stay relatively healthy so far this year, which plagued him in previous seasons. The only season that Bush played all 16 games was his rookie year in 2006, when he accumulated 1,307 yards from scrimmage and eight touchdowns. It is not far-fetched to believe that he can match that type of production again in Miami.
In fact, Miami could be Reggie's revitalization. Bush has had his fair share of leg injuries, but he's only 26 years old. If Miami uses Bush half as well as the Saints did and continue to make him the primary back, then we could see a couple of 1,000 to 1,500-yard seasons out of Reggie.
In Miami, Bush has a chance to be something he never had the opportunity to be with the Saints, a feature back.
