I like the idea of Bush lininig up at Fullback. It may be an opportuntity for the coaches to design some plays for him without looking too out of place or obvious to the defense that he may get the ball.

Michael Bush, what a joke. Raider fans are so stupid. He looked real impressive against the lame Cards. 24-0....losers.

Of course Bush wouldn't be a full time full back, but it does give the offensive coordinator interesting possibilities as far as keeping the defenses on their toes when the Raiders have two top notch running pack lining up behind the QB.

Ya, Kiffin said "no way" is he putting Bush at FB. So, thats the end of that.

Chumps like this wanted to play Marcus Allen at WR, Chris Cooley at HB and John Riggins at FB. And now, they are trying to convert an all star runner into a damn FB. Idiots i say!

You forgot Marcus Allen playing Fullback to allow both he and Bo Jackson to be on the field at the same time. Marcus played fullback in college. It's not such a bad idea to have Bush in the backfield with Fargas or McFadden on occassion. It keeps the defense on their toes and allows a fine RB to be on the field.

...The lack of a fine running back is obviously why the Raiders must keep 3 mediocre ones...

Michael Bush is a big time talent just waiting for the right opportunity. He can throw the ball as well as Russell and he can catch with most wideouts. And, as fans learned Sunday, he's a first rate running back.6878

Michael Bush is the reason I was opposed to drafting Darren McFadden especially after re-signing Fargas last year.

Cable gave Bush and the entire O-line game balls. Bush's two rushing t.d.'s were the first scored against Tampa at home all year. Eliminating Chucky, Papa Kiffin, and the Bucs from the play-offs in their house .... priceless!

agree, both teams failing to reach the playoffs was priceless in 2008. look for the same in 2009 as they go for their 7th season at sucking.

So sorry to see "your" Patriots eliminated from the playoffs, by Miami no less! I guess we can count on "your" team next year being whoever wins the Superbowl. There can't be anything much lower than a psycho who bashes everyone else's team, and can't even decide on which team "he" is cheering for. Not to mention which pseudonym "he" will go by next. Therapy is just a phone call away. Very pathetic.
