After being stopped at the 13-yard line, Reggie Bush says he is upset he got caught (Credit: Toledoblade.com) During Thursday night’s preseason game, Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush caught a short pass and turned it into a big gain. Even with a short pass, Bush turned the play into a 67-yard gain. Despite the 67-yard gain, Bush is upset he didn’t gain more yards. “I was pretty upset that I got caught,” Bush said, via ESPN.com. After breaking out for 67-yards, Bush was caught by New England Patriots corner back Kyle Arrington at the 13-yard line. This led some to speculate that Bush is not nearly as fast as he used to be when he first joined the league. Despite being caught, Bush still ended the night with 104 totals yards and he credits his offensive line for helping him break 100 yards. “The offensive line did a great job getting out there hustling and getting some blocks for me then springing me loose,” Bush said. “I was kind of waiting on the blocks down the field and Pettigrew was in front of me, Edwards was also in front of me. They were blocking so I was kind of slow playing and letting them make their blocks and I should’ve just took off and just ran. Nevertheless, I thought it was a good play and it gave us a lot of momentum early on.” While Bush only had 1 yard on 6 attempts, he did have 103 yards on 5 receptions. If he is going to be a play maker in Detroit this year, it will be because of his ability to catch out of the back field.

After the Detroit Lions went a disappointing 4-12 last season, they will need to step up as a team to bounce back this season. Of course, we all know it’s a given that Calvin Johnson will have another great season barring any injuries. I also expect Reggie Bush to have a great season in his first year as a Lion. He’s going to be a big threat coming out of the backfield both as...
The Detroit Lions used a fourth-round draft pick on Ronnell Lewis last year.
Rather, they wasted one.
Lewis, an undersized 6-foot-2, 253-pound defensive end, is one of four players released Sunday by the Lions to cut their roster to 80 players. The club must trim down to 75 by Tuesday at 4 p.m.
The other players who failed to make the most recent cut were safety Chris Hope, cornerback...
As a Detroit Lions fan I am very familiar with the personnel and the offensive scheme.
The Lions have one legit WR, he just happens to be the best in the game. They cannot run the ball, period. Their offense consists of Stafford taking the snap in the shotgun position, looking for CJ down field and then dumping off to the RB.
This gameplan could result in Reggie breaking...
Jason La Canfora reports that the Detroit Lions are in the process of making calls to acquire a starting-caliber wide receiver.
Many expected second-year receiver Ryan Broyles to setup and be the team’s No. 2 wideout this season, but he was running with the second-team offense during Thursday’s preseason game.
Detroit still has veteran Nate Burleson and second-year WR Patrick...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Willie Young Mr. August taunting a future Hall of Fame quarterback.
Whats wrong with that picture?
Young, a defensive end for the Detroit Lions who was a star in the preseason last year but a flop in the regular season, wouldnt disclose what he said late in the first half of Thursdays exhibition game to draw a personal-foul penalty or why he did it.
Training camp and the preseason were good to the Detroit Lions. They came out of it with a nice idea of the strengths and weaknesses of the position groups and most importantly, healthy. Though the preseason isn’t over, training camp is done and it is time to analyze what it means going forward to the regular season.5. Rookies will play a contributing roll this season.The preseason...
Detroit defensive end Willie Young says he'll avoid penalties that hurt his team after taunting New England quarterback Tom Brady.
Young's taunt resulted in a 15-yard penalty in the Lions' 40-9 win against the Patriots in a preseason game on Thursday night.
After hurrying Brady into an incompletion in the New England end zone, Young grabbed Brady by the collar and said...
I’m all about being a fierce competitor, but maybe someone should tell Lions defensive lineman Willie Young to tone it down a little. Grabbing a Hall of Fame quarterback by his jersey and pointing him in the face after a meaningless incomplete pass in a meaningless preseason game isn’t exactly a great look.
That’s exactly what Young did towards the end of the second quarter...
Lions coach Jim Schwartz was appropriately subdued after his team’s 40-9 exhibition victory over the New England Patriots on Thursday both because it’s the preseason and preseason games really don’t matter and because despite the lopsided score his team had just enough head-scratching moments to counter much of the good it did.
The defense forced four first-half turnovers...
Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Detroit Lions have traded QB Thaddeus Lewis to the Buffalo Bills.
The post Report: Lions Trade QB Thaddeus Lewis To The Bills appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
Lions defensive end Willie Young must have forgotten that Thursday night’s game didn’t count, since it’s only a preseason game.
Young ended up getting in the face of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the Lions’ convincing win over New England. Once again who cares if the Lions played better, the game didn’t count.
