The Detroit Lions made it back to the postseason back in 2011 after over 10 years of being the epitome of a terrible franchise. They fell back on hard times in 2012 but they reloaded in the offseason and now their prized acquisition thinks his new team can win the Super Bowl.
“Honestly, I don’t think we’re far at all. We have the guys here to be able to win a Super Bowl,” Bush said at Detroit Lions OTAs, via MLive.com.
Bush then covered his bases a bit and said that a lot needs to go into the season before the Super Bowl discussion can start but the talent suggests the team will be better than it was last year.
There’s a lot that has to go into this season, this team, this offseason, before we can even think about that. Right now, we just have to think about doing the little things right and coming together, building that chemistry that’s going to help us coming down into the season when we’re down by a touchdown in the fourth quarter with a minute to go and we have to drive a whole football field. Those little things right now are going to help us during the season.
The Lions no doubt have more talent on their roster than they did last season and Reggie Bush is a large part of that. But Detroit has their work cut out for them if they want to make it to the Super Bowl in 2013 as they haven’t made it out of the first round of the playoffs for over 20 years.
