Bush League

Reggie Bush is arguably the biggest everyman in the NFL. The hype surrounding the halfback when he left USC was incredible; people genuinely thought Bush would change the game. Instead, he was awful. Bush coasted by on his talent and struggled mightily. Instead of washing out, Bush reinvented himself as a between-the-tackles halfback and has now carved out a nice niche for himself. He’ll never change the game and he’ll never be the best halfback in the league, but, like most 20-something college grads, he’s happy just to have a job and do it well.

Bush figures to be a big part of the Detroit Lions’ game-plan when they visit the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium, 1 Cardinals Drive in Glendale, for the Cardinals’ home-opener on Sunday, September 15.

The game will kick off at 1:05 p.m. Tickets start at $45 and are available by phone at 800-745-3000 or online through
