Maybe it was because Nate Burleson was wearing some thick Clark Kent-looking glasses as part of his postgame get-up. I don’t know. But of everything I heard in the Detroit Lions’ locker room Sunday afternoon, nothing sounded smarter than what the veteran receiver uttered near the end of an interview session.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
