But back -- dot com Super Bowl coverage I would buy all new Honda Accord crop tour I'm Laura opening joined by Alex Marvin as an Adam Schein and you wanna start with best or worst -- wanna start the running game and talk about. As the Colts running attack or lack of one ranked 32. Will matter come. They're very well could you know you look at the Colts in the caught the Jets a little bit off guard gaining a 101 yards in the AFC championship game. I think that was significant drawback a couple of years ago the Super Bowl 41 the Colts rushed for 190 yards Joe Addai and Dominic Rhodes teaming up for that. In a perfect world the COLT would look to see that it takes him -- of the football keep Drew Brees on the silent but the reality is this team is not done a great job rushing the football. Billick disabled we need to run it we can get it done. I think more often than not they don't get it. Yet -- although it's only a few weeks ago and he -- when it suited to his team can't run now granted that was before the game against the Jets announced immigrant point I think that that -- was surprised how effective and efficient. Indianapolis was in terms of running the football. I don't see it on Super Bowl Sunday at big John Vilma and company to do two under rated when it comes to stopping the run it. I think that the Colts rushing attack he's going to be -- nonexistent. In the super. Okay so to go from the Colts running game to. Commit to kind of fun to watch that identity for one season. The heat Sunday is. Walked the four headed monster to keep going and when talking three that there were talking about for you got upper -- Hamilton the special teams standout short yardage goal line back into the mix. Mike Bell his role diminish a little bit but he can get some snaps -- really you're talking about Pierre Thomas in Reggie Bush and I think Pierre Thomas. -- he's -- from the three fractured ribs that he suffered in late December. That's going to be key factor and we gotta get the Reggie Bush showed up against the Arizona Cardinals and was running people over him with a guy who got stonewalled on a consistent base against Minnesota. You know it's interesting I look at the Saints running attack and I think it's good I mean all year long they've been top ten whether it's statistically Weathers watching the games getting feel toward. Offensive line is very good Thomas where he was injured really solid back I think Reggie Bush will get seven to ten carries in this game here Thomas about twelve to fifteen at. Alex is right in terms that depth specially short yardage goal line situations. I think that even though the colts' run defense has been vastly improved I think that these guys from New Orleans will be improbable actively in the super. I see the difference in Reggie Bush -- talking to him you know how we downplayed it saying I've been doing what I've always been doing but even his teammates were like. Man we have -- blog like that and USC game he just says it was a holes they were that big would it differently. I think he's grown up is literally comes down to must remember Reggie Bush is really young guy believe is only 25 years old 2425. And he's been in the spotlight ever since ever since high school and going to southern cal and from what I understand for people to cover the team. He's grown up because the -- -- it. She is actually helped him become a more mature person he's had to do a lot more mature things like going to the White House and being in a media spotlight. And I think the guy also realizes too footballs his bread and butter I think being injured. And also finally realizing he may not be the best back on that team has served as to motivation for him. Yeah it's interesting I I kind of get through agent talked to people around game he lose. Humbled kind of -- -- here kicked a little bit I think Drew Brees was instrumental in saying it. You need to work you need to -- you need to be in New Orleans in the offseason and you need to be committed it. And I think that you know he realized. That he an opportunity to shine come playoff time. And I talked to Mickey Loomis about it that. The focus and commitment. From Reggie Bush during the bye week before that -- for mention Arizona game. It was incredible and I was not surprised that he played well against the cards I think he's going to be a big thank the lord he's always been a guy -- -- the big stage. Running the football and all on special teams he's gonna do something big to change the game -- A phone call this offseason like it never gotten before it was Reggie called. What do you what do like due to eat better and Johnson started with get your butt into New Orleans in and start -- in the offseason. Keep your relationship with shown they were back there. How much do you enjoy watching the -- offense running or if it's the relationship which on what it's different. With -- Reggie I really think that it's the weight -- stuff has made a big difference with him there's no question. He's a bigger guy and he's not afraid to challenge people and I think he's becoming a smarter runner the sad thing though is that he's injured so much you know and the thing I guess it's so disappointing. You have to wonder does he have a chronic knee condition as Reggie Bush ever gonna hit the heights that we all public it was a number two pick in the draft I'm not quite sure. But the states are trying to get maximum yield out of him even -- -- at the Decourt. Coming out of the -- the guy can still cause some problems. And I think in this game is going to be a factor catcher. Think that's something we need to references well -- I think its roots -- in terms of being a receiver out of the backfield it seemed Sean Payton do different things line amount. Why -- -- slot catching out of the backfield I think it's another part of it is game I think it's. Quite easy. Only guy I think on that field that you can consider as a running back that has a home run threat absolutely that he can take the ball. As many yards as it takes 89 yards and scored practicing the -- run some plays at times just may -- even at the end of I have to try to get him out thirteen and their running out the clock. Try to get -- the football and if there's an open space thinking that he could take it all the way but for the -- to try that again on Sunday. It's funny media day watching him where everyone else kind of wide eyed and excited to be there but he -- down -- comfortable liking it and this date is nothing absolutely I can see you guys is only so much for like your typical coverage make sure to keep it right here log on to foxsports.com.
