Lions | Reggie Bush a more mature runner
Thu, 03 Oct 2013 10:35:42 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush said he has become much more of a complete runner and has learned to be an effective rusher in between the tackles, instead of just being used as a slasher on the outside. "When I look back, I'm so much more advanced in just my vision, my understanding of schemes, linebackers, where they have to play their gaps and just all the different things that come along with being a running back," Bush said. "So it's taken a while. It didn't happen overnight. It took me a while, took a couple years." In Bush's final three seasons with the New Orleans Saints, he ran between the tackles 64 percent of the time. In his two seasons with the Miami Dolphins, that number jumped to 76 percent, and so far this season, he's running between the tackles a career-best 81 percent.
