Thoughts after 3rd quarter Lions, Bears

- What a waste because of the interception late in the third quarter, but this is still a game the Lions' should win. We'll see if they have taken a step forward in regard to competitive poise during the fourth quarter. A top NFL team shakes off that interception.
- One of the questions developing earlier in the season was whether Reggie Bush's success was because of the attention on Calvin Johnson, or whether because he is a genuine NFL star. Until the third quarter, it appeared as if it was all about Calvin Johnson. Certainly, it didn't go well for Bush last week at Green Bay. Or, really, in the first half today. However, it was much different during the third quarter. On the Lions' scoring drive early in the third quarter, Bush displayed rare explosiveness for an NFL back.
- Clearly, Calvin Johnson isn't himself today. But we've seen him play many great games while ailing, The Lions apparently were saving him for the second half. It would be surprising if he doesn't play a prominent role during the fourth quarter.
