by Andrew Abramson ...

So Philbin shed no light on the running back situation.

But return man Marcus Thigpen, who has three career carries for 16 yards, said that he will be Miller’s main backup. ...

Center Mike Pouncey also mentioned Miller and Thigpen with no reference to Gillislee.

“When Marcus is in the game he’s going to do a great job,” Pouncey said. “He’s a guy we believe in a lot.”

Is the smart move to make Thigpen the No. 2? ...

To me Thigpen has been a bust this year. Not sure why he deserves the snaps

We lost a touchdown maker....

Go get Danny Woodhead to be the 3rd down back and hurry up offense back to replace him.

Even though the yardage wasn't there, at least in the first 4 games the backs seemed to be getting in the end zone.

Another thing, why the hell is this guy returning kicks? No vision at all.

He has gotten pretty terrible. Tired of seeing Thigpen and Miller running in the wrong direction.

He needs to learn when to take a knee down in the endzone on returns!

I don't think AP could run behind our awesome offensive line with success

I would love to see Lamar Miller taking back kicks..I think getting him in open space is could create many options. Only problem is if he were to get hurt we rely on Thigpen and Gilly. Hopefully Thigpen steps up. This is his shot to get some time, so I think he knows that....I think he is a great example of an escape last resort checkdown target. Easy 16-20 on a would be sack.

Yep Kev, he sure did. At least the Lions are using him right.

I'm actually happy for Reggie Bush. He was a class act here and now he finally has an OC that will showcase his skills. Reggie + Scott Linehan = a good matchup.

Scott Linehan

We had him back in 2005 as a flash in the pan stop. I like that guy. Would you rather have him or Sherman?
