The Detroit Lions were one of the biggest disappointments from the 2012 season as they entered the year with high expectations after finally breaking their playoff curse the previous season–only to finish the year with a 4-12 record. One of the reasons why this came as bit of a surprise was because the Lions had one of the league’s best duos at quarterback and wide receiver in Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson.
Now, if you ask one of the newest members of the team in Reggie Bush, the running back makes it clear that there are no excuses for the Lions’ offense not to perform well in 2013–and he’s right.
On paper, Detroit should have one of the league’s top offenses and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be able to compete with the rest of the teams in the NFC. As mentioned before, the Lions already had a dynamic duo in Stafford and Johnson, but the team hopes the addition of Bush will give them more of an advantage on offense.
If Bush can play at the level he reached from a few years ago–there’s no reason why that shouldn’t be able to happen.
Bush has always been considered a running back capable of being dangerous on the ground and through the air–which is why Detroit signed him this offseason. Detroit has been in need of a running back for quite some time and Bush is hopefully that answer.
The potential is certainly there–so it will be interesting to see if the Lions live up to the hype in 2013.
