Post Why can't Bush be like Spiller or Sproles?
Aside from a few big games, Bush is pretty inconsistent. So what is the difference between these guys? Coaching? Talents?

They all seem to be cut from the same mold, and Sproles and Spiller are integral parts of their teams, despite the fact that neither of them can really claim to be the number 1 back, unlike Bush.

Three things right now.

O-line is pathetic. Reggie is dancing. Sherman has no idea how to get him in space.

Yep, he's getting hit behind the LOS and if he is dancing if the hole he is supposed to go through is not there. Ricky had this problem the year before he "retired". I think he should just run where the thinks the hole is supposed to be that so that he isn't losing yardage. If he keeps his legs going and moves north to south he could make something out of nothing ... which Spiller and Sproles do. I'd like to see Sherman throw him the ball more. Reggie is (well, he used to be) a home run threat, so, give him a chance to be one.

He was better than either of the two until he got hurt.

He's gotten a little older and the injury didn't help. He doesn't have the speed he had earlier this year and last year. And yeah, the O-line stinks.

The o line has sucked....Long is going to get Tanny or Bush killed with his 2 or 3 lapses every week.

There is no push for these guys to run.

Yep, each week it's becoming more and more apparent that our offensive linemen are oversized and not athletic enough to execute the scheme our staff wants.

To make matters worse, the staff stubbornly won't adjust the scheme to fit what we actually can execute. And you're right, Reggie is dancing. The zone rushing requires quick decisive one cut moves in order to hit the hole with speed so you can get into the open field and do damage.

The only guy I see that gets it is Miller, but he isn't quite there yet with his pass protection, something we sorely need right now due to the ineffectiveness of our o-line.

It also doesn't help that teams are putting seven and eight guys in the box to gum up the rushing lanes.
