Cowboys can't stop talking about Bush

Just got back from Valley Ranch, the center of the NFL universe this week as the Dallas Cowboys host the New Orleans Saints. Both teams are 8-4 and the winner will clinch at least a wild-card berth. After three hours listening and talking to the men with stars on their helmets, two names were heard all afternoon -- Drew Brees and Reggie Bush. It seemed like there wasn't anyone else on the Saints. Brees this, Bush that. By the way, I didnt hear (and fellow reporter Jason Pugh will back me up on this) Duece McAllister's name ALL DAY. It's clear the Cowboys defensive players have put a bullseye on Bush's back. Former LSU and current Dallas linebacker Bradie James said Bush can "take it the distance any time he touches the ball." The Dallas defense has clearly made it a point not to let the NFC's leading pass catcher (second in the NFL behind Houston's Andre Johnson) beat them Sunday. I think the Cowboys' defense is plenty good enough to stop Bush and the Saints running game. And with the receiving corps likely depleted, it could be a long day for the Louisiana boys.
