Reggie Bush Somehow Ends Season With Negative Rushing Yards

Some NFL history was made this past Sunday in New York.

Some very sad and depressing history.

Reggie Bush didn't receive a carry in his Buffalo Bills' blowout loss to the New York Jets.

As a result, his rushing total remained at a incredible -3 yards to close the season.

For those keeping track of such things, this marks the first time since 1970 that a non-QB rushed for negative yardage while carrying the rock more than 10 times.

Of course, a little perspective is required here.

Dude only totalled 12 carries while looking up the depth chart at both LeSean McCoy and Mike Gillislee.

But dear Lord, the symbolism is just horrific.

Bush was cruising along with a robust 5 yards rushing until an ill-fated reverse against the Dolphins cost him 8 yards.

For whatever reason, the vindictive Bills decided not to give him the ball in their meaningless season finale, even though they were likely well aware of the dubious record Bush was about to set.

Those bastards.

At almost 32 years old, this could very well be the end of the line for Bush, and while he never lived up to the massive hype that followed him from USC into the NFL, dude did have some productive seasons with multiple teams.

Bush used to do things like this on a fairly regular basis:

However, if this is his final season, then there may not be a worse way to go out.

Many folks are having fun with poor Reggie at the moment, including former Saints teammate Steve Gleason.

He's absolutely correct.
