Reggie Bush says he signed with the Detroit Lions to win Super Bowl championships. Yeah, let that sink in for a second. A NFL free agent, and a relatively desired and pursued free agent, signed with the Detroit Lions to win championships.
First of all, the Detroit Lions have never even made it to the Super Bowl. The only NFC team to never play in a Super Bowl. The Detroit Lions have only ever made it to one NFC Championship game, and were crushed by the Washington Redskins.
“I came here to work,” Bush said, via the Detroit News. “I didn’t come here to vacation. I came here to win championships, to win football games, and that’s what I look forward to doing.”
So does that mean he went to the Miami Dolphins to vacation? Or to be around Kim Kardashian when her reality circus, I mean show, comes to Miami?
“Some guys have been asking me, ‘How was Miami? How was South Beach,’” he said. “I tell them, you know, it’s nice but if the football isn’t right, it doesn’t matter where you are at. If your work isn’t right, you are not going to be happy. As long as we take care of business here, this can be an amazing place. I think it has a lot to offer. I look forward to getting into that stadium and hearing those fans be as loud as ever.”
But this isn’t the Lions of old, they have a chance to actually win. They have a solid, when healthy, quarterback in Matt Stafford. The best receiver in the league, and not to mention the self proclaimed best defensive tackle tandem in the NFL. Reggie Bush fills a void and provides a quality running back and he could be the missing piece of the equation.
