He should buy a Power Ball ticket!!
 
Scout.com: Burleson stands behind winning prediction

RockyMountainSaint 01-05-2012 08:16 PM

"My next prophecy is that The Detroit lions will win a playoff game," Burleson said last week.

Good luck next year!

Now that the Lions' opponent has been determined as the 13-3 New Orleans Saints, a team that has already defeated the Lions once this season, is Burleson sticking with his prediction?

"To be honest, I have no choice," Burleson said.

translation: Oh crap! we have to play the Saints?!?!

Should have kept your mouth closed from the start.....

I actually kinda like it. He sounds like a funny guy to me. Reminds me of "We want the ball, and we're gonna score!" -- and we all know how that one turned out. This type of ridiculous antics on other teams, I'm all in favor of it. People tend to forget that the famous Joe Namath guarantee, he was running his mouth off at a microphone, and he shouldn't have said it -- but the Jets had been looking at game film of the Colts for two weeks by then, and knew exactly what they were gonna do to the Colts, he knew their defense inside and out and where the weak spots were. Big difference from what this guy is doing. This guy probably wasn't keeping up with the playoff picture and probably thought the Saints had a bye week, when he said it.

Nate Burleson = Best Dressed Player in the NFL. Fact.

He is a funny guy, but whattya' expect him to say?, "Um, well, the whole Wk #18 thing is kind of cramping our style as we're usually golfing this time of year, but I guess we'll have to mosey down to New Orleans and get spanked . . . contractual obligations you understand" . . . the tickets are already sold and if it's all the same to you guys, we'd like to make a game of it . . . gotta' do something to motivate the troops, we're playing the New Orleans Saints for crissake.

go Lions.

I believe nate had penalties nullifying about 100 yards in the first game.

Then perhaps the best thing to make his "prophecy" come true for his team would be to voluntarily bench himself and not even enter the stadium

Yes, three offensive pass interference calls on the same player in the same game . . . has to be some kind of a record. :roll:

. . . but today is game day . . .

go Lions.
