As a Lions fan, I’m really pulling for Reggie Bush to have a big year. I mean, we’re due for a stud RB in Detroit, right? Since Barry Sanders retired prior to the 1999 season, we’ve had a revolving door of no-names (Greg Hill, James Stewart) and one hit wonders (Jahvid Best, Kevin Jones, Kevin Smith) lining up in our backfield. In the last 10 seasons, only the Cardinals have rushed for fewer yards than the Lions. The football gods clearly owe us one. But is Reggie Bush the answer we’ve been waiting for? His first preseason game with the Lions wasn’t anything special, but we can’t draw any meaningful conclusions from a couple of series. We’ll need to dig into Bush’s measurables and the Lions’ offensive tendencies to find out.
