I hope we stick with Bush for now and if McFadden is good to go, then only use him for ememrgency

(fb) MARCEL REECE is kicking a.s! so if bush or dmac gets traded, m reece will fill in. i don't know whats going on with taiwan jones? i mean, i know he has a (hami) injury but he hasn't taken advantage of the little time he's gotten to play. maybe he needs that many more times to play to warm up to run good. but coach jacko says he has unbelievable speed! "i haven't seen it"! i doubt they get ridd of bush or mcfadden but it is possible? we need to work our way into the top of the draft again thanks to our damn good (qb) carson palmer!

Bush is a free agent, so unless we show championship potential by the end of the year, I'll bet he goes where he can be a full time starter. I think our best bet is to re-sign Bush and commit to him as our starter and trade McFadden since he's a proven injury bug and Bush is proven to be capable and durable.

I'm guessing that Bush will be franchised if they can't agree to a long-term contract. He and Mcfadden are both too valuable to let go.

I agree with Captain. They are both too valuable. We are lucky to have the best 2nd string RB n the league. Bush is easily a starter on (almost) any other team. I wouldn't blame him for wanting to go to another team to be a starter.

D-Mac may be injury prone but when he's healthy he is hands down the better of the 2. Bush was the starter for D-Mac's first 2 seasons (because of injury) and, as good as he is, he never led the league in rushing......I don't think he's even been in the top 10. Last year, I don't think D-Mac ever dropped below 3rd or 4th in the league the entire year......and he was on pace to do it again this year.

With D-Mac as our starter, though, we will always need a very good 2nd stringer. Pay Bush whatever he wants--he's worth it!!!

And with Carson at the helm, it takes A LOT of pressure off our run game. Any time we can't move the ball on the ground, we can move it through the air.

Both of their (D-Mac and Bush) values went down just a little.
