Lions running back Reggie Bush thinks the Lions have a Super Bowl-quality offense.
Bush, who has previously said he went to Detroit to win championships, told the team’s website that he would be disappointed if the Lions have anything less than the best offense in the NFL.
“Honestly, I believe there’s no excuse for us not to have the No. 1-ranked offense. We have all the right pieces and the necessary players here to be the top offense in the league. No excuse,” Bush said.
Bush said he believed when he signed with the Lions that players like Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson could be part of a great offense, and he still believes that.
“Getting to know my teammates, I’m not finding anything I didn’t already know or expect,” Bush said. “Stafford – he’s great. He has a really strong arm. He seems like a very good leader. Seems like he has all the intangibles that you need in your quarterback. Calvin Johnson’s a beast. Nate Burleson’s another guy that’s a vet and seems like a leader and a hard worker. Again, another good player.”
For a team coming off a 4-12 season, the Lions have been making an awful lot of noise this offseason. If the Lions don’t back up all their talk, there will be no excuse.
