  • Oaklands' Michael Bush

    ESPN's Adam Schaffer is reporting that almost all of the Raider's roster is available for trade. Probably not a stretch because of Al Davis.

    Anyway... what do you guys think of Michael Bush and if you like him what would it take to get him.

    I think he can be very productive but isn't getting a chance in that hell hole.

    In two years he has only rushed the ball 218 times but he averages 4.6 yards per carry.

    He has only caught the ball 36 times but he averages 7.4 yards per catch.

    I'll admit I'm a little bias because I watched him play during high school and at Louisville but man I hate to see talent wasted like they do in Raiderville.

    Besides they still have Fargas and McFaddin.

    He's in a good situation to get out of Oakland, with a pricey investment that demands playing time sitting above him in the depth chart, along with Fargas, who has been quite serviceable up to this point. It all depends on the Raiders though, and how they value him over Fargas. Maybe their plan is to move Fargas instead, but who really knows with the Raiders.

      I see too many people stressing the need for a backup running back.

      If you have a solid team with a solid offensive line, you can make any young guy with a burst a back up running back.

      Granted our backup RB's are worse than most but WE SHOULD FOCUS ON VALUE AT THE BACKUP RB POSITION.

      With many free agents and young guys available lets get a cheap guy with speed back there.

      thats all

        I wonder what the Raiders are looking to get in return? More draft picks? Sounds crazy to me the way the Raiders draft.

        Nevertheless, Michael Bush would be a nice option as long as he doesn't cost too much. A nice bruiser to accompany Jackson in their never ending mission to beat down opposing defenses.

          he seems a decent player from the little amount ive seen of him..i wouldnt be mad if we got him for a 6th or 7th rounder.

          Norwood is the RB addition i would like most tho..but he probably would like to go somewhere where he has more of an oppurtunity to start than he would with Jax to compete with.

            Guy was a heisman candidate before he tore his knee all up. I like the 6th or 7th rounder for this guy, he is a freaking brast.

              What did Adam Schaffer suggest would be required to be traded to get Bush away from the Raiders?

              The Raiders invested a 4th round pick in the guy and have yet to place him in as their feature back so it's GOTTA be 5th or less. Personally, I'd give the 5th round pick we got from Philly for Spoon. Bush would be a nice addition to this team.

                I wouldnt mind bringing the guy in, he has been a pretty decent runner the few game i have seen of him. The most I would put on the board for him would be our 5th rounder from philly, which is were I see us getting a backup RB anyway.

                  Schaffer didn't mention Bush specifically he just reported that Oakland was pretty much willing to shop everybody.

                      Nomdi Awsome-wa? lol. It would take our numero uno to do that, way too much imo.

                      tempting though.... the guy is a stud

                      But hey, it is the Raiders, might be able to get him for our third rounder

                          i've watched a little of Michael Bush, its hard to say if little game time but he does look good and id like to see him in a rams uniform for a late rounder.

                          Steven has been abused over the last 2 years, they need to extend his life span by getting someone in for a 2 rb rotation .. maybe a 70/30 split. westbrook does offer qualities to compliment Jackson.

                            Well its Nnamdi Asomugha, and yeah. I'd pretty much give up any pick besides our first for him. He is an animal! Wouldn't mind Michael Bush neither...

                              Not saying the rams are intersted in the guy or hes going to be picked by the Rams but this kid has alot of talent. He was on pace to be one the best RB comming out of college untill he got hurt I believe in the first or secound game of the season. They are projecting him as being the 3-4 RB chosen and wouldnt he be a good fit behind Steven Jackson. This will allow him to recover getting less carries, and the good thing is, is that he fits the rams running style. He is beleive it or not 6-3 at 247 pounds way bigger than Steve Jackson and can give us that goal line rusher to help us at the goal line. Your toughts.....


                              Rams all the way:r

                              Speculation: Raiders to dangle McFadden?
                              by THOLTFAN81
                              Per Rotoworld:



                              Now this is complete SPECULATION. I am not twisting words or anything just reporting some speculative talk.

                              McFadden, while injury prone, is only 24 years old. He has shown an ability to, when healthy, be one of the best running backs in the league (in my humble opinion). We have stressed now that we will be engineering a two back system, and want to find a replacement for SJax. Some on this board want to use a 2 pick on a RB. One who will be unproven. With McFadden we know we are getting pro bowl talent. He will have the ability to be a complementary to SJ for a few years, and thus preserving his health before we let the dog off the leash when SJ inevitably breaks down. Say in 2 years...which McFadden will still be a young age of 26.

                              So Im proposing, if he is made available, the Rams trade their 2.1 to Oakland for McFadden.

                              Oakland doesn't draft until the fifth round. This trade IMO would put them in favorable position. They could then dangle that pick over night, and acquire more picks thus giving new GM Reggie McKenzie some actual ammo to work with.

                              Would you do this proposed speculative trade?...

                              Any takers if he is cut by the Saints?

                              I know he has had a knock of being scared to take a hit, but we already have that RB in SJ39

                              He has exceptional speed to go along with exceptional hands and could thrive I think in McD's offense.

                              thoughts?

                              Bush is fast becoming 21st-century Mandarich
                              By Mike Freeman

                              This is who running back Reggie Bush is starting to resemble. He's beginning to look a lot like Tony Mandarich.

                              You remember Mandarich. It was Mandarich who literally fooled the entire NFL industrial complex - coaches, general managers and the media. Everyone. In the months leading to the 1989 draft, stories of Mandarich's athletic prowess grew to almost legendary status. He was Paul Bunyan Mandarich. He could pancake a defensive lineman with one arm tied behind his back.

                              The legend of Mandarich grew so rapidly and suckered so many people it remains one of the great draft con jobs of all time. What Mandarich did was take a good college career - he was an All-American player at Michigan State, an Outland finalist and twice was the Big Ten lineman of the year - added some Guns N' Roses tatts, talked smack about how he could beat up Mike Tyson, acted like he loved the smell of Napalm in the morning and soon enough, people bought the tough guy act. He was right.

                              Sports Illustrated put Mandarich on its cover and actually wondered if he was the best offensive line draft prospect in history. Incredibly, Mandarich was selected by the Green Bay Packers ahead of players like Deion Sanders and Barry Sanders.

                              Mandarich is without question the most overrated draft prospect in the history of sports. And this is where Bush comes in. He's not so far behind Mandarich when it comes to creating a magnanimous image that isn't real. Not so far at all.

                              In fact, as I revise my list of the top 10 most overrated athletes of all time, not just draft selections, but all professional athletes, Bush is quickly advancing past the top five. My top 10 now goes something like this:

                              10. Vince Carter -- His terrible shooting makes him one dimensional.

                              9. Chris Webber -- Average NBA career but grand name recognition.

                              8. Jose Canseco -- Has had more of an impact on baseball post-career with his mouth than he ever did with his bat.

                              7. John Daly -- Could easily be top three.

                              6. Bo Jackson -- Both overrated and underrated. Overrated because his career was so short; underrated because he is one of the best athletes sports has ever witnessed.

                              5. Reggie Bush -- This from former Denver offensive lineman and current analyst Mark Schlereth: "You look at Reggie Bush. Reggie Bush doesn't know how to run between the tackles right now. He's a guy that's an edge runner. He's a guy that right now is not fulfilling his part of this offense."

                              4. Joe Namath -- 220 interceptions, one championship and a lot of horrible seasons.

                              3. Michael Vick -- Good player but career shortened due to stupidity.

                              2. Mike Tyson -- Devastating puncher and one...

                              How good will Reggie Bush be? In that pre-season game versus the Titans he cutback just like Faulk. Maybe we should have traded up. This guy has juice. But will he make the Aints a winner. Dont know. Will be exciting What do you all think?

                              I loved watching him with USC.
