    Any how, I am talking more about actual football speed. Bush is fast, without any doubt. But I just have never seen him look this fast. Dri can pop dat thang. Reggie just kind of semi pops it.

    Watch the 2 min. mark. In hindsight, I think Bush is more of a 2-3rd round talent.

    This vid has one of the best jams of all time.


    Bush put together one of the single best, most electrfying seasons for a RB of all time at USC. The man was unstoppable. He was a top 5 pick as a RB or as WR. Had he put up more modest numbers like Gio Bernard did at UNC or Chris Johnson did at ECU then, sure a 2nd round guy but he didnt and was a run away heisman winner instead. (I used CJ and GB as comparisojns because i described them both as poor mans reggie bush prior to being drafted)

    Bush had 1740 rushing yards and 18 TDs with highlight after highlight after highlight and almost 9 yards per carry....that is unreal. Archer did get 9 per carry in 2012, but were talking a different animal when it comes to offense and quality of competition

    Jeff Demps was faster too. I don't think he ran the 40 at the combine.

    But since entering the NFL, he has not produced to the level of a top 5 pick. He had tons of talent around him at USC. All I am saying is I think DA could have more highlight, big plays than Bush has.

    I hope so... but I'll believe it when I see it. I'm not holding my breadth.

    If I'm drafting a short guy who weighs less than 180 lbs., give me the guy who gets timed in the 4.2's instead of 4.5, who has a dozen more reps of 225 lbs., and has a vertical jump a half foot higher. But that's just me.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    I agree Ruthless but I wanted Thomas before the draft. The guy plays much faster than a 4.5. I think both are going to be great.

    Wasnt disputing that. I agree, just more of a comparison of two pretty similar players.

    I want to see archer doing some of that...untouched running
