Mark Schlereth may have just committed career suicide when he responded to a Reggie Bush question by flat out saying "Reggie Bush is a bad football player". A creepy silence fell over the entire espn headquarters for a solid 3 seconds, equivalent to an hour in TV time. Schlereth, knowing that his corner office was already being cleared out and all evidence of his existence going through the shredder, decided to go for broke. He basically called Bush a pussy for never putting his head down, always stepping out of bounds, and missing games due to injuries Brett Favre wouldn't even know were there. Clearly Schlereth was out shooting another scene for "the bold and the beautiful" or whatever when espn sent out the memo proclaiming Bush one of their Golden Boys. Does he not know that Bush won the Heisman Trophy, that he runs a 4.3 40, that he's spooning with Kim Kardashian. Bush's on field performance is completely arbitrary to his status as the NFL equivalent of the chosen one. Nice knowing you Mark Schlereth. Your stunning daytime drama good looks will surely be missed.
