Lions’ Reggie Bush: Not living up to expectations has been humbling


Expectations were high for running back Reggie Bush when left USC and entered the NFL Draft. He has failed to live up to the lofty expectations rushing for 1,000 yards just once in a season, for Bush it has been a humbling experience.

“I don’t feel like I’ve met all the expectations,” Bush said on Jim Rome on Showtime. “Nobody sets higher standards for myself than me. When I was coming out of college, I thought I’d be winning Super Bowls every year, I’d be in the Pro Bowl every year, competing for MVPs every year. It’s been a very humbling experience since the day I set foot in the NFL.”

While he has never been to a Pro Bowl, he has won a Super Bowl.

“I still feel like I have a lot left to give this game and we’re still hacking away,” Bush said. “But I would say my career has been OK. It’s been good but not great. I feel like there’s a lot left in me to give this game, so I look forward to the years to come and I’m going to ride this thing until the wheels come off.”
