Railbird Central Podcast: Jarrett Bush Saves the Day

Episode 340

On the weekly Monday review of Railbird Central, we take a look back at Sunday's Packers win over the Falcons to help Green Bay stay alive in their hopes for a spot in the playoffs.

Why is Bush getting credit for this when it was a poorly thrown ball that Ryan had to throw as a prayer?

Because he caught the ball and ended any hope of the Falcons getting in field-goal range? And combined with his fourth-down broken-up pass he deserves the credit?

If Shields made those 2 plays, he's a play-maker and a shutdown corner.

Since Bush made them, the ball was poorly thrown and he was in the right place at the right time.

Funny how that works.

Did you see the play? It was thrown into coverage. One Falcon and a bunch of Packers. Shields' interception last week showed talent. This was almost as easy a pick as you get. Granted he wasn't standing still.

I don't think anyone is calling it a great play. But give the guy credit for making a play when we needed it. You probably think the SB INT was his blown coverage that he lucked into don't you?

Yes, I saw it. Did you see the game where 2 Packer defenders tackled each other out of an easy INT, turning it into an easy Eagles TD? How about defenders going stone-handed all season on sure INTs? Nothing is easy or sure in the NFL.

Bush made a play. It wasn't the greatest play of all time, but it was a good one. Why is that so difficult for people to accept?

Hey Brian - I know this was a relatively hot topic during the off-season, butI'm curious about your take on how Bush might fare at safety.

Brian Carriveau's picture

Years ago, I was all in favor of Bush playing safety, but now in his eighth year in the league, I think it's a moot point. Seeing him play in the slot is better than him playing on the perimeter. Being the dime defensive back or playing in the short-yardage packages suits him well.

Bush made plays when called upon.....good stuff. Shields int in the lions game proved he is a legit playmaker....I am glad someone brought that up. That was one of the better plays our secondary has made in a long time.
