Reggie Bush on kickoff returns


Reggie Bush returned the first kickoff of his professional career yesterday.  I've had this discussion with friends numerous times, though rarely have I seen it brought up on these forums.  Why isn't this one of his regular assignments?  No knock on Courtney Roby, but if you have a lightning quick player that has difficulty visualizing his blocking lanes, wouldn't the natural solution be to give him MORE TIME to see the field in front of him?  Compared to returning punts, there's considerably less trajectory on a kickoff.  Instead of staring up at the ball for those extra couple of seconds, he could be deciding what sliver of daylight he's going to hit.  Conversely, Roby could be used a bit more often as a WR, thereby keeping Thomas and/or Ivory in the backfield rotation.  As is, it seems as though you're getting mimimal return from two players, one that arguably isn't worth his salt, no matter where you line him up.  Outside of fumbling or getting injured, what's the worst that could possibly happen, if Bush were to continue in this capacity?  Discuss.
