I’ve only watched the game once so far, so I’ll give more thoughts next week in preparation for the next game.

-Reggie Bush’s first run, a leaping off tackle burst that picked up 11 yards, is precisely the sort of run that nobody else on this roster has been able to make since #20 left the building. Alas his 2nd carry was quickly snuffed out in the backfield. Still, Bush is a better version of the weapon we all hoped Jahvid Best could become. Thumbs up for the pass protection too.

On the Release of Peterman and VandenBosch

A day after releasing malcontent wideout Titus Young, the Lions made two more moves with much broader significance on Tuesday. Two longtime starters, right guard Stephen Peterman and defensive end Kyle VandenBosch, were released by GM Martin Mayhew.

On the surface, these moves are all about saving money under the salary cap. The constraints forced on the Lions having to pay over $50M of the approximately $122M cap number to just three players (Stafford, Suh, Johnson) mean that pennies must be pinched. Young’s release did little to impact that bottom line, but the Tuesday moves are a significant step forward in cap reduction.
