BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Rough way to score some points.
Notice Dominic Raiola yelling at Titus Young on the sideline? Yeah, pretty telling.
I noticed over the past year a lot of players started saying their high schools on player announcements. Maybe it's because they didn't play in college or just wanted to rep their high school a little bit. Burleson has taken it a step further and went with the elementary school shout out last night. Not sure but maybe he said it because the Lions have been playing...
Leaping catch near the sideline for a first down. But it's yet another big play that gets called back.
Burleson gets caught with pass interference.
Make that seven Lions penalties so far.
Ever since the folks over at NBC's Sunday Night Football switched to live introduction of the players, some players have decided to have some fun with them.
Last Sunday night, Detroit wide receiver Nate Burleson decided to shout out his elementary school:
"On one of them I pushed off," Burleson said. "On the two that I caught, I am going to have to look at the film. I felt like I was aggressive to the ball."
It wasn’t quite as funny as Terrell Suggs saying he went to Ball So Hard University, but hearing Nate Burleson shout out his elementary school on Sunday Night Football intros was pretty funny. After Matt Stafford represented Georgia, Kevin Smith cited Central Florida, and Calvin Johnson mentioned Georgia Tech as their alma maters, Burleson shouted [...]
Nate Burleson had an impressive catch, a huge play that had TD potential.
Burleson lost his momentum, though, and fell out of bounds. You could hear him yell.
Matthew Stafford is on a roll. He targeted Nate Burleson on second-and-3.
But Burleson drew another pass interference penalty.
Detroit's wide receiver drew three offensive pass interference penalties against New Orleans, but there were "two others that I've seen not get called a bunch of times," says the Lions head coach.
Matthew Stafford's toss to Nate Burleson is picked off by Tracy Porter. Porter played tug-of-war with Burleson on the play.
Just goes to show you can play aggressive and within the rules, something the Lions simply didn't do much of today.
