St. Louis Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan is a brash young man, and if you let him tell it, this year’s NFC Super Bowl representative will a team that no one expected to get there. Finnegan was in Detroit to take part in a celebrity softball game put on by a few of his Detroit Lions friends.  Finnegan told the Detroit Free Press that he “if his own Rams team doesn’t win the Super Bowl, he’d pick the Lions to do it.” “If we don’t win it, I’ll take the Lions winning it next,” Finnegan said. Detroit beat St. Louis in Week One last season, and Finnegan said the Lions have one of the toughest passing attacks he’s faced, starting with Calvin Johnson. “You don’t have the name Megatron for any other reason other than you’re a bad man,” Finnegan said. “So that’s where it’s at. They had a lot of good things going for them. Slot receivers, [Matthew] Stafford is amazing. They picked up some good stuff this year. So [Jim] Schwartz, he’s always going to put together a good team.”
