Nate Burleson caught a touchdown pass in his first game back from an arm injury, then held the ball aloft like it was a freshly made pizza.
Though Stafford’s short replies made it sound like he got his toes stepped on by Bush calling for a meeting, other players brushed it off as no big deal and not a serious difference of opinion.
In the midst of a mistake-riddled loss, wide receiver Nate Burleson provided something of a silver lining,
“I know he was kind of joking,” Burleson said, “so maybe he was just trying to be funny, but save that for the comedians.”
“Even my agent was like, ‘Only you, Nate. Only you could turn a car crash into a DiGiorno deal,'” Burleson said.
Many big, strong, manly football players do yoga, including superstar wide receiver Calvin Johnson, and almost all of them – yes, Burleson included – initially resisted taking up the practice.
“I’m not going to sit here and pull an RG3 and talk over what is common sense, and that’s listening to my coaches and listening to the doctors,” Burleson said.
Far from accepting the reality of never-ending pizza jokes, Nate Burleson has embraced them.
It all started when fourth-year Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant apparently would not concede that Detroit Lions superstar Calvin Johnson would be the best target on the field when the teams meet Sunday.
Being a workaholic is part of the job description for an NFL coach, so it speaks volumes about Detroit Tigers season that even Lions coach Jim Schwartz took a little time to watch the Tigers win Game 5 of the American League Division Series.
