Regie Bush, to date, has fulfilled most 'informed' expectations of what he would do this year.
Coming out of college, Bush was a 'raw' back, who had the benefit of a superb O-line, great QB, another outstanding RB, great WR's, and a awesome D. No one really expected Bush to make plays like he has in the past. In College, a lot of what Reggie did was just that, Reggie. He played the game like kids to, fighting for the big break, going for the cutbacks, crossfield runs that create amazing video tapes. He was head and shoulders better than the majority of players on the field, and it showed.
Now in the NFL its taken him some time to learn and change. Its tough going from being so much more talented, fast, and agile than everyone to being immediatly, if anything, equal in terms of speed and agility to more veteran players. College football still can be dominated by that one player, as Reggie Bush and Vince Young showed last year, as Troy Smith, Darren McFadden, and others have shown this year. In the Pro's the Defense is bigger, stronger, faster, SMARTER, and that takes time to get used to. All of Bush's moves will not work as well in the NFL as it did in college, and most informed viewers expected him to struggle as he adapted through his rookie season.
Perhaps this past game has showed that Reggie has finally broken out and learned what he has to do, and I honestly hope so. No matter who you are, you cannot admit that watch Reggie in college was something special. The moves, the runs, the catches, the dives. I cannot wait to see that Reggie in the pro's, and it will happen, it will jsut take some time.
Remember, it took Favre three years under Holmgren to break out and become a phenom, why should Bush only have half a season?
