Reggie Bush Says He Can Win NFL Rushing Title

Reggie Bush walked the walk on Saturday, gaining 113 yards in the Miami Dolphins' Christmas Eve showdown with the New England Patriots to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. Now he's talking the talk, too.

This week, Bush said he thought he could lead the NFL in rushing in the near future.

"Yes, I do," Bush told NFL.com reporter Jeff Darlington. "No disrespect to anyone, but I've spent a lot of time studying different players, including Chris Johnson. I've watched a ton of his runs, especially during his 2,000-yard season. And yeah, I feel like I'm capable of a lot, but I'm not worrying about that yet."

It typically takes over 1,500 yards to win the rushing title -- at least one player has surpassed that threshold in 16 of the last 17 seasons. Bush, who's finishing out his sixth NFL season and turns 27 in March, has by far a career high at 1,086. But he says he's ready to improve upon his first season in Miami.

"I feel like there's so much more," Bush said. "This is just the tip of the iceberg."
