10. Which rookie running back will have the biggest impact in the playoffs?

Reggie Bush, Joseph Addai, Laurence Maroney, and Leon Washington have all
been huge for their teams, but Bush has separated from the pack late in the
season. Addai led all rookies with 1,081 rushing yards. Maroney rushed for
745 yards and averaged 28 yards per kickoff return. Washington ran for 650
yards and broke a screen pass for 64 yards to beat the Dolphins in Week 16.
Bush made a minimal impact early in the season, but he blew through the
rookie wall, exploding for seven touchdowns in the final five weeks. He
finished with 1,307 yards from scrimmage and looks like the
once-in-a-generation player he was advertised as. With global warming
minimizing the Bears' home-field advantage, look for Bush and the Saints to
march into the Super Bowl.
