This is the type of thing downvotes were made for.
What do you mean Sixteen Stone was the shit?
Dude charge your battery.
Good for the short term if true for the long term it's not so really I'm indifferent towards this news.
Your son has the attention to detail typical of 17-year-olds. You may want to edit the thread title.
Thank you, Denicos.
Bush was 90s.
Yeah, we might be talking about a different bush here, Sparky.
Dominating Press Conferences Since 2007
Not very many RB's play all 16 games. Unless you get lucky in the draft and pick up someone like Ray Rice, you are going to probably get an oft injured RB. Even a guy that comes back in half a year from an ACL injury like Adrian Peterson has only played 16 games 3 times.
It depends on the price but Bush might be worth it at the right price.
Bush isn't bad. He was splitting carries in Miami. He's still fast.
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
yeah, this guy is JUST what these clowns need. My god they are pathetic. You build teams from the INSIDE out, not the OUTSIDE in. Same shit, different decade. The next good oline they have will be the first....fucking douches.
Yeah because RB isn't a huge need or anything

OK- you don't know jack.
They were t18th in the league in ypc despite having Bell, Smith, Leshoure among others split carries. They were 9th in the league in sacks allowed despite dropping back to pass more than any team in the history of the NFL. On top of this they had a 1st round LT draft pick that was able to sit and learn on the bench. The Lions OL is better than most in the NFL.
They need a center and could upgrade at guard but you don't find a C or G through FA unless you want to overpay ridiculously and you don't draft one in the early first round. This is their year to get a C or a G in the 2nd round.
the lions could probably find a cheap upgrade to one of their interior line spots in FA. Yeah, they wont get a top level elite player, but Raiola is so bad, average would be an upgrade and cheaper (google says he made 3.4 million this year? Jebus)
Go Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Pioneers.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
Yeah, highest base salary in the league at C. How fucking ridiculous is that?
Certainly we can upgrade Raiola, but my point was that Bush doesn't really stop the Lions from upgrading those spots. I'm hoping they can pick up Barrett Jones in the 2nd round.
They picked up Bill Nagy, C out of Wisconsin, on waivers last year (on IR the whole season with a broken ankle). He's the odds-on favorite to replace Raiola, and he's on the roster at a rookie contract (6th round, or something). No worries.
Please update thread title to
Lions might sign magic unicorcheeta and win super bowl of gold.
Don't post poop!
Look out, Tim Twentyman agrees that Bush may be a FA target for the Lions. *Sigh*
Reggie Bush, RB, Miami
Mayhew said he won't be caught in the same situation again this year that he was last year when running back Jahvid Best couldn't get his clearance to return to contact. The Detroit Lions will likely want to know about Best's future before free agency or the draft.
The Lions missed Best's ability to take advantage of one-on-one matchups in the passing game and his big-play ability as a runner. Bush has a very similar skillset. He's never caught less than 35 passes in a full season and had 88 his rookie year in 2006 with the New Orleans Saints.
Bush has amassed over 2,000 yards rushing the last two seasons in Miami with 15 total touchdowns.
Make no mistake though, Bush will be expensive. He'll likely be looking for a raise on his $4.5 million base salary last season.
He also says the Lions might target Brian Hartline, which could actually be a solid (and inexpensive) move on their part.
