Fred Taylor Is Sick of Reggie Bush

No, this isn’t some elaborate quote of Fred Taylor running his mouth because the Jags are facing the Saints this week. It’s something small, that probably went unnoticed by most. In the latest issue of Sports Illustrated, Fred Taylor was one of the four athletes quizzed in the “Pop Culture Grid.” One of the topics was “Most annoying TV commercial.” Fred didn’t pick on an AFLAC or Dr. Scholls commercial like some of the other players. Oh no. Instead, Fred got creative. His response:

I am tired of seeing Reggie Bush.

Pretty harsh words, if you ask me. Fred clearly is a man who keeps score of commercials and endorsements. He’s had a wonderful NFL career, and judging by his lack of Pro Bowl appearances, he’s flown under the radar for most fans and pundits. It obviously stings him to see an inferior player who’s done nothing of note in the league getting all kinds of attention. Funny enough, it looks like Fred isn’t the only person getting sick of Reggie Bush, who is no longer the golden child of the NFL.

    get in line Fred…i have been sick of reg since he won the heisman over VY cuz Bush was the most over hyped player out of college ever. Soon RB will be charged by the NCAA and hopefully the statue will be handed over to Vince Young to whom it rightfully belongs

    Driver, we actually agree on something. Just like with national championships, Heisman Trophies should be handed out after the bowl games. Vince Young was not only the best player and the most dominant that year, he was one of the very best college players I have ever seen.


    So you are hating on me for what, because Im having a hard time? Thanks

    I’m not gonna hold my breath on the NCAA. They pick and choose who they wish to investigate. Take the situation here 4 years ago. The slightest sniff that Clarett did anything wrong and they descended on Columbus. Clarett wouldn’t tell them who loaned him the car. He later admits it was from a family friend which is NOT against NCAA rules. Clarett suspended forever for ‘lying to an NCAA committee’.

    At the same time you have a guy like Marlon Jackson who was charged with felony assault for refusing to leave a guy’s house then smashing him in the face with a beer bottle. The judge and prosec. in the case all attended Michigan. They let him go with a misdemeanor and small fine. The victim: I guess that’s how it works around here. It was also revealed that Jackson had a DUI earlier that year and kept it from the team. He was suspended for 1 cupcake game and the NCAA never shows up.

    People love to topple the guy on top (not that Reggie is atop anything right now). The people that boost up athletes to unreachable standards (Adrian Peterson being hyped at ESPN as the best back in the League or potentially the best back ever …WTF) seem to enjoy knock guys down a level.
