Bush Again a Non-Factor When it Counts the Most

It was yet another quiet night for Saints playmaking running back Reggie Bush, who had just six rushes for 30 yards, and two catches for 16 yards.  Bush had two punt returns, but only gained one yard on the two returns, and didn’t do much else the entire night in a game that the Saints had to have.

The former first-round pick of the Saints was none to happy about his limited role in the critical loss, and was vocal when asked about why he played only sparingly in the second half. Bush played only on one punt return in the third quarter and did not see any action on offense.

“That’s how it goes,” said Bush, who said he sprained his knee on a run in the second quarter. “I just work here. I’m just an employee. I don’t call the shots. I definitely don’t call the plays.”

It seems the Saints were more confident with giving carries to Pierre Thomas, who led the team with 22 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown, and 7 catches for 59 yards.  Bush’s status as a playmaker will again be in question more than ever for a team that once again will watch the postseason from home.
