he Lions have lacked veteran leadership in recent years. Running back Reggie Bush deserves credit for trying to fill the void.

Given that Bush rarely has said anything controversial during his eight-year NFL career, his decision to repeatedly talk about the problems with his latest team suggests that he has tried to get his point across behind the scenes, and that guys simply won’t listen.

Bush previously has said that the team doesn’t have discipline. On Friday, Bush said the team also lacks chemistry.
