Bush’s failures point to his ego

Standard

New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush has been a huge disappointment on the football field after being highly hyped coming out of college.

His failure on the field all point to his ego.

According to Sports By Brooks, via Pro Football Talk, Bush back in October 2005 was suppose to pick up then potential recruit Percy Harvin who made an official visit with the team and entertain him.

Instead, Bush left Harvin waiting for him waiting in his hotel room while instead had dinner with family and prospective marketing agents partners Lloyd Lake and Michael Michaels.

It goes to show that Lake and Michaels inflated Bush’s ego to the point that he felt he was above entertaining others.

In the National Football League Bush hasn’t done the work that is necessary to succeed and it shows in the constant injuries that Bush suffers each year.

Many NFL experts say that injuries are caused by being smaller, but that is not true as injuries are caused by the body’s inability to handle the stress that is being put on their bodies when battling defenders.

In the end, Bush will never truly be great until he loses the ego and do the work necessary.

Jones had to be drinking

New York Giants rookie Chad Jones career may be on the line after a early morning crash with two of his friends also in the car.

Obviously, Jones had to be drinking.

According to WWL-TV, via Pro Football Talk, Jones crashed his car into a street pole and suffered several fractures to his leg and various other injuries to his left leg as 7:15 in the morning.

People that are driving around at 7 am with friends obviously have been out partying and drinking.  So, it will not be a surprise to me when toxicology reports come out that Jones was drinking.

Most likely Jones swerved to miss something and then subsequently lost control and hit the pole.

It is tragic to see a young man’s career end before he even had a chance.

In the end, it is just another reminder that it doesn’t matter who you are if you are not careful with your car bad things can happen.
