Reggie Bush: 'It's been fun New Orleans'

NEW YORK -- It wasn't long after the Saints traded back into the first round that they drafted Mark Ingram. And it wasn't long after the Saints drafting Mark Ingram that Reggie Bush let the world know about his future.

In a not-so-cryptic tweet, Bush seemed to say peace out -- literally -- to the Big Easy.

"It's been fun New Orleans," Bush tweeted shortly before midnight EST on Thursday.

He also added an emoticon (you might know them as "the stupid smilies that my co-workers won't stop sending in emails") that was two fingers extended, aka "peace out."

To sum up: it seems like the Saints and Bush will be parting ways before the 2012 season. That seemed inevitable, barring Bush taking less money, but perhaps the ability to acquire Mark Ingram could mean that New Orleans won't have to even worry about paying Bush's potentially exorbitant salary.

The odd thing, though, is that Mark Ingram isn't a replacement for Reggie Bush. Because, um, Ingram's a running back. Like a real one.

That's not dogging Bush, really; he's just not a feature back. And he's lucky that he actually landed in a situation where a coach could manage to utilize his talents, because otherwise he might be in the big-time bust talk.

But the Saints won a title with Bush on the roster, so that's probably out of the question.

Given his statement on Thursday, there doesn't seem to be any question that if the Saints get Super again that they won't have Bush celebrating with the rest of the team.

Reggie Bush: 'It's been fun New Orleans'

Actually, this could be a mistake.  The Hornets got ousted from the playoffs last night, too.  Isn't Bush a Lakers fan?  Could he have been poking fun at the Hornets fan that "it's been real" on their playoff run?

I'm not sure, but I wanted to put that out there since there's no reason to think Reggie is done in NO just because a RB was drafted.

Dear Mr. Bush: Grow Up!

It's difficult enough to follow the ongoings of the NFL (owners, players, commentators, etc.) from here in Europe . . . Where the Frankfurt Galaxy once ruled! 
   But trying to figure the reaction(s) of those that have been instrumental in their team's success . . throwing 'in the towel', so to speak, is more than difficult.  With Ingram, New Orleans now has an offensive threat that can completely confuse and challenge defenses.  Just imagine if Ingram can start catching the ball . . !
   Bush should sit back and realize the potentially awesome offense New Orleans will field with his talents and Ingram's combined.  It may come as a shock to his ego, as he was probably not "consulted" on this pick . .  but it is far too soon to for him to mouth off without knowing the overall plan.  That will come in time . . which will allow Mr. Bush to grow up and be patient.

Once the Cowboys cut Barber, I'd take Bush as a 3rd. He'll have to play special teams!

What an immature response.  When Bush gets hurt like he always does then what ?  They are also 2 different kind of backs.  Reggie I doubt you will go to a team that has an offense like the Saints.  GROW UP !! Your not all that !!
