Idonije… you scamp you! Tipping off the Lions on your former team’s defensive calls.
According to ESPN Chicago’s Michael C. Wright (via Deadspin), Chicago believes that Israel Idonije (who previously played 9 seasons with the Bears before signing with the Lions in the offseason) tipped off the Lions’ offensive with the Bears’ calls at the line in turn helping Reggie Bush gain 173 all purpose yards and a touchdown.
A few Chi players think former DL Izzy Idonije tipped off Lions to their stunts. Said Bush burned them every time they did "power" stunt.

On top of that Bush was also averaging 7.7 yards per carry which is pretty damn good while the offensive line prevented the Bears from getting to Stafford basically the entire game. So it certainly wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility that the Lions in the week leading up to Sunday’s game were picking Idonije’s brain on what certain defensive schemes would look like....
