Detroit Lions — Three reasons Reggie Bush a great asset

Reggie Bush enters his second season with the Lions after making quite a splash in his first.

Here are three reasons Reggie Bush has been a great asset:

1. He’s a workout fiend. Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi was with the Saints when Bush played there before his two seasons in Miami. Lombardi was pleasantly surprised to see the Bush still has the explosiveness he had with the Saints.

2. Bush is more familiar with this kind of offense because it’s very similar to what the Saints ran. In fact, Bush said it’s exactly the same. But Jim Caldwell says it has bits and pieces from several offenses.

3. Bush is serious about winning and shares that as a leader of the offense. He’s 29 but seems much wiser. He’s one of those guys who is a born leader and that’s key.
