Nate Burleson: Lions need their own Lambeau Leap

Everyone knows about the Lambeau Leap. Nate Burleson has plans for the Detroit City Bounce.

Lombardi: Take five

Burleson celebrated his first catch during one-on-one drills with a spike and impromptu dance with Titus Young. When he hauled in another pass, he climbed the end-zone wall and high-fived with fans.

"I don't know," Burleson said. "I'm trying to figure out something, the Detroit City Bounce or something," Burleson, via the Detroit Free Press. "I don't know, though, 'cause I don't like to do anything that is close to Lambeau Leap 'cause I'm not really too keen on Green Bay. But I'm going to figure out something that only the Detroit people can identify with."

"That's why I like playing for the Detroit Lions -- he lets me come out here and play with my own personality, and it's good to clown around a little bit," he said. "You can do a little bit more here than you can in a real game, so I'm all for it."

Commence the countdown for a local columnist to cite Burleson's behavior as the latest sign of a lack of discipline in the organization.
