Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush made the rounds at the Fox Sports campus in Los Angeles on Thursday, doing everything from taking over their Twitter account to appearing on their television network to even joining Charrisa Thompson on a podcast.
During which, the most interesting comment came when Bush complimented the exploits of new head coach Jim Caldwell.
“I think our biggest free-agent signing has been Jim Caldwell,” Bush said. “I think he’s exactly what this team needs, what this city needs, what this organization needs. And everything that he brings to this team, to this city, is all about being a champion.”
Bush went on to explain Caldwell’s Super Bowl resume, including two trips there as a coach in Indianapolis and another with Baltimore.
And then, he said Caldwell’s impact for Bush is deeper than just football.
“Every team meeting that he’s held has been exciting. And I feel like I’ve left that meeting a better person,” Bush said.
Bush referred to Caldwell in the interview as a “player’s coach,” and someone constantly reiterating “the championship-caliber of playing, approaching the game; acting, walking, talking like champions.”
As with seemingly every conversation with an NFL player, the topic turned to the quarterback. In this case, Bush said that Matthew Stafford is right on track when it comes to maturing into a leader.
“Obviously, he catches a lot of slack, but he’s a really great player and a really great leader,” Bush said. “I’m glad he’s on my team, because I know, especially with where this team is headed, he’s going to be great for us.”
The podcast covered everything from songs at his wedding (which was just a couple of weekends ago), fatherhood, vasectomies, hanging out in college and more.
