The Detroit Lions' move to sign running back Reggie Bush earlier in the offseason created a lot of excitement, and not just among fans. The Lions themselves are obviously quite excited about the addition, as they see Bush as someone who can keep defenses guessing. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson, for example, thinks Bush will force defenses to respect the run more than they have in the past when facing the Lions.
Calvin on Bush's impact: "He's gonna make them bring another man down (in the box). If you don't, Reggie will make you look foolish."— Chris McCosky (@cmccosky) May 20, 2013
Bush himself is excited about getting to play in the Lions' offense. During interviews last week, he compared the Lions' style of offense to what it was like playing for the New Orleans Saints. He likes how the Lions spread things out in their passing game, and he is also a fan of the "screens and draws and stuff like that." Via the Lions' official site, here's more of what Bush had to say:
"I look forward to getting back to this style of offense," Bush said on Sirius NFL Radio. "There's a lot of room for big plays and scoring a lot of points. There's never a dull moment with this offense and the talent that we have."
Hopefully the Lions will be able to better take advantage of all the talent they have in 2013 by actually scoring a lot of points on a consistent basis.
