Everybody knew it was only a matter of time before Reggie Bush moved on from the Miami Dolphins and now that he’s a member of the Detroit Lions–the running back hopes their offense can help him bounce back for a big 2013 season.
It was no secret that Bush simply didn’t fit into the New Orleans Saints‘ offense a few years ago and even though his first season with the Dolphins seemed like a good fit, Bush struggled for a majority of the 2012 season. However, Bush may need the Lions just as much as they need him heading into next season considering they seem to have the perfect type offense for him to make a splash in.
Detroit is coming off a disappointing 2012 season in which they finished with just four wins–which is embarrassing since they ended their playoff drought the previous season. The Lions already contain one of the most dangerous passing games in the NFL thanks to Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson, but they could still use some help when it comes to their ground game.
With a running back like Bush–he could end up being just the type of weapon they’ve been looking for.
Bush has always been the type of running back capable of being just as dangerous in the passing game as the ground game–which is why the Lionsa re willing to give him a chance this season. If Detroit has just the type of offense Bush has been looking for, there may be a chance for him to bounce back after all in 2013.
