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.
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?
