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.
As great of a locker room presence as Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson provides, he tries his best to be on the field as much as possible, even after breaking both bones in his forearm just weeks ago.
The Detroit Lions have started the season well, but now they have to travel to Green Bay where they have not won in years. What sort of injury issues are they facing as they try and upset the Packers?
Ever wonder what NFL players say before a big game, after a big play or on the sidelines? Now you know, at least a little.
Many expected that the Detroit Lions would bring in another wide receiver after the injury to Nate Burleson, and now it looks like the team is closing in on a deal.
“My arm was broken so that may cause you to stumble, but it was not alcohol-related at all,” Burleson told TMZ.
Schwartz even agreed to compare Forte with freakishly talented Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson.
The Lions take on NFC North rival the Chicago Bears at home, but without a couple of players than just suffered long-term injuries, and perhaps without a couple of key players on both sides of the ball.
