In 2011 the Lions won their first five games with running back Jahvid Best providing an explosive run-pass dynamic from the backfield. Since Best suffered his most recent concussion the Lions had gone 9-19.

Today the Lions went to 1-0 thanks in large part to the arrival of running back Reggie Bush.

Bush who had 101 yards receiving and 90 yards rushing touched the ball 25 times in his Detroit debut a 34-24 win over Minnesota.

“We just scratched the surface today” Bush told PFT by phone after the game. He was referring to the team but the sentiment also applies to Bush himself.
