The real reason why their offense is rolling at the right time before a trip to face Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay in Week 5 is running back Reggie Bush.Bush returned from his knee injury and showed the Chicago Bears that when he’s at full speed, he’s now what makes the Lions really go. Bush weaved through a good defense for 173 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown on just 22 touches.Detroit’s No. 2 back, Joique Bell, has been good, too, and was a fine sub for Bush in the Week 3 win at Washington. But Bush is a different kind of explosive. His versatility and game-breaking ability was what the Lions were missing since the limited time they saw a healthy Jahvid Best. He’s the perfect complement to the threat of Calvin Johnson always drawing attention while stretching the field.The Lions are in first place in the NFC North, but to make us believe they will stay there beyond the Bears’ game, they must prove they can hang with the Packers. Bush is the kind of weapon who can give Green Bay’s linebackers and safeties all kinds of problems, and he's the key to helping Stafford keep up with Rodgers.
