The Detroit Lions lost to the Cleveland Browns in a preseason game. Despite the fact that it is a meaningless preseason game, losing to the Cleveland Browns 24-6 at anytime apparently is cause for panic.
“We should be concerned,” running back Reggie Bush said, via the Detroit News. “We’re better than this. We have to hold ourselves accountable because we need to put points on the board. That’s our job and we didn’t do that.”
Some weren’t quite as panicked.
“It’s just a matter of fixing it now,” center Dominic Raiola said. “I don’t know about (it being) a wakeup call. We’re still in Week 2 of the preseason. It’s not good that it happened, but we still have time to fix it.”
“That’s all I said afterward — just fix it. Take whatever you can from it and fix it.”
One of the areas for concern is the upheaval along the offensive line.
“That’s something we’ve got to get going,” Raiola said of the run game. “I don’t have an answer for you right now. Of course we want to get that going, especially with an explosive guy like Reggie Bush.”
“It’s disappointing. I don’t think anybody’s satisfied in here, which is a good thing. Take it for what it is and come back to work.”
