Who Would You Rather Have In A Charges Jersey: Michael Bush Or Mike Tolbert?

The Chargers will need to find a backup for Ryan Mathews this offseason since it seems that Mike Tolbert will be on the move. One of the options that is mentioned in Kevin Acee’s latest article is Raiders RB Michael Bush:

The Chargers will likely go looking for a veteran such as Cadillac Williams to back up Ryan Mathews. Michael Bush, who they tried to get via trade a few years ago, is also a possibility.

The Chargers wanted to get Bush a few years back as a backup to LaDainian Tomlinson, but were not able to swing a deal. He is now available in free agency and could be a guy that we want to bring in. He is a tough inside runner and has a nose for the end zone.

He is similar to Mike Tolbert as a running back. Wouldn’t it make more sense to just bring back the Toldozer since he is familiar with the players in the locker room and the playbook already?

Which Mike would you rather have? Tolbert or Bush?

Instead, let’s just watch Mike Tolbert run over 49er Dashon Goldson:
