Bush’s First Touchdown with the Saints
Reggie Bush made the crowd break into ecstasy when he took the punt 65 yards with under five minutes to lift the New Orleans Saints to a 24-21 victory over Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Bush got to get away from the Buccaneers’ players in the first pursuit by running across the field to his right side, and then he accelerated quickly and cut up-field until he scored dedicating the goal to his team’s fans by pointing at them. The multitude was delighted.
All the mass was chanting “Reg-gie! Reg-gie!” when the score was made official by the referees.
This was Bush’s fifth game as a pro and this was his first touchdown. Everybody had been waiting for this moment since he was a player that was blockbuster drafted and a lot of expectations were carried on his shoulders since he won the Heisman Trophy at USC.
Even though the New Orleans Saints’ victory in this game took place thanks to many strategies and players Bush was the center of the attention of many and as he admitted: “The monkey's off my back now." People’s pressure for him to score has decreased, at least by the moment.
But Reggie wasn’t the only one that gave his heart to the Saints looking for favorable results in this game. Deuce McAllister took a 10-7 lead into the half with a tackler-shedding, 57-yard carry that set up a field goal. McAllister added a 24-yard touchdown run, had 117 yards rushing in the first half and ended up with 123. Drew Brees did a good job since he was 21 of 33 for 171 yards and one TD, to tight end Ernie Conwell from 9 yards that gave the New Orleans Saints a 17-7 lead in the third quarter.
