Thoughts after 3rd quarter Lions, Vikings

- So Reggie Bush made a play. So he has gone for 1,500 yards from scrimmage this season. So he is a standup guy who plays hard. So what? The bottom line is his fumbles killed the Lions this season. It's like with Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson. Time will show their statistics for this season to be impressive. They are both standup guys who play hard. At the moments that decided the issue this season, they didn't get it done, though. Bottom line.
- If the Lions' had remained in the playoff race or reached the postseason, it was only a matter of time until David Akers being their kicker would have hurt them. The Lions did make a lot of solid personnel decisions during the off season. Replacing Jason Hanson at kicker with David Akers wasn't one of them.
- If there was ever a team that needs a fullback for short-yardage situations, it is the Lions.
