    Big Decision: Containing Reggie Bush
    November, 24, 2011
    By Jean-Jacques Taylor


    ARLNGTON, Texas - He was supposed to be Gayle Sayers, but he's clearly never going to reach that level of production. Heck, Reggie Bush might not even be as valuable as Darren Sproles, the man who replaced him on the New Orleans Saints.

    But he remains a dangerous player, one Rob Ryan must make sure doesn't beat the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day.

    Of course, that's easier said than done, in part, because Bush is showing skills as a runner he never did in New Orleans.

    Bush still struggles between the tackles, but he's having his most productive year ever as a runner. With 117 carries and 506 yards rushing, he'll establish career highs in both categories....

    He is going to be very dangerous if we don't cover the flats better than last week.

    I'm actually more worried about covering their fullback William Clay. He has good pass catching ability and we've always seemed to struggle covering up pass catching fullbacks.

    Clay, Sean Lee can keep up with. Bush...not really. That leaves Church, if Sensabaugh doesn't play. Or having to put Church over their top receiver in zone, if Elam gets the assignments.

    One might gamble early with Carter, since he'll be active for Special Teams.

    Exactly the kind of game that will expose speed at LB.

    One game I'm hoping that Anthony Spencer sets a good corner on run defense.

    idk....spencer better stop that hoping around blockers he does otherwise he is going to create a alley for the dolphins RBs to run up.

    In saying that. Spencer might or should have a big game today vs columbo.
