Reggie Bush spoke with Matthew Stafford and “already feel(s) like I’ve been in this offense for years”Posted by on April 15, 2013 – 2:36 pm
“Since I’ve signed, things have been good. My mind’s been all over the place with the baby on the way and we’re still trying to find a place to live here. It’s kind of like being pulled in different directions. I’m trying to enjoy one thing, but I can’t too much because I’ve got to focus on something else. It’s been good, though. I’ve been enjoying it. They are all good things, so that makes it easier.
“I just sold my condo in New Orleans. I was in New Orleans, then we had the condo in Miami and then we live in LA in the offseason. Luckily I did the smarter thing in Miami and I only rented out there, otherwise I would have been stuck with three residencies, plus here. But we were smart about that. Now, just LA and here.
“My fiance’s name Lilit. She’s Armenian and just got her citizenship, actually. She speaks Russian, Armenian, English, she’s learning Spanish now. She wants to speak Russian/Armenian to the baby first, which I like, because that way she grows up knowing multiple languages.
“The baby will be in LA. Well, she’s going to be in LA because her family lives 15-20 minutes away from us. So she’s going to need that support system while I’m here for a few days out of each week. Then I’ll be home. Depending on which week it is, I’ll be home on a Thursday or a Wednesday and come back here Sunday. I’ll just have to deal with travel. I’m going to rack up a lot of sky miles, I know that.
“I’m very excited. Very excited about the baby. It’s our first one and couldn’t have come at a better time. I don’t know if there’s ever a perfect time to have a baby because you can always find excuses like, ‘Well, I’m still trying to do this.’ I just think, for me, it came at a good time when I needed it to just kind of put in my head my direction in life. It just made it more simple. It couldn’t have come with a better person. Someone I really love and care about. It’s great. It really worked out perfect.
“As far as football, I’ve been looking at the playbook. The thing I really like about this team, this offense, is it’s everything that I’ve already done. It’s everything that I already know and the terminology is very easy, so it makes sense. I’ve been in teams and systems where a lot of it doesn’t make sense. You just have to remember it.
“So now you’re kind of playing this remembering game. You can deal with it, but it makes it so much easier to play faster when it just makes sense. I literally just finished talking through everything with Stafford. I already feel like I’ve been in this offense for years.
“The last two years, we didn’t have the passing attack that I had when I was New Orleans or that they have here. So we ran the ball a lot more. I enjoyed it because I was getting involved more — I got to touch the ball more — and I got to show that I can do both. It was more of a running-attack offense. It’s tough to win in an offense like that because this is a quarterback-driven league. If you don’t have a good passing attack, you aren’t going to survive.”
