I don't know about you, but I'm sick of having a stable of mediocre running backs. Our last 1000 yard rusher was Julius Jones and he barely made it over that mark. If Murray's health is going to be questionable, then we need someone who can come in without taking a huge step back.
Murray is by no means a superstar, but he and Bush would compliment each other nicely; they each bring different things to the table. With Bush's talent as a pass catcher, maybe we can actually convert our red-zone visits into touchdowns. If we have the same exact offense next year, then things are not going to get better, especially when I believe we only scored more than 10 points once before halftime all year.
I would love the idea of Reggie Bush as part of this team. I would just rather not throw all our eggs into Murray's basket.
