A Tale of the Tape: Bush versus Galbreath

Tonygalbreath_display_image_medium 

While looking over statistics, I noticed Tony Galbreath had played exactly five seasons with the Saints, so I decided to run a comparison between he and Reggie Bush

While the similiarities are striking to say the least, it should be pointed out that Galbreath managed to play in what amounts to an entire season more than Bush within those first five years, due to his relative lack of injuries.  Galbreath also split carries throughout his time in New Orleans with a first round Pro Bowl talent, Chuck Muncie.  Despite this, both players (have) scored exactly 33 regular season touchdowns as a Saint.  Galbreath edges out Bush by one "extracurricular" point, however:  two FGs and one PAT, to three 2 pt conversions.

All of which begs the question:  If Reggie Bush has played his last game as a Saint, does he belong in the Saints Hall of Fame?  Discuss.
