"I don't take anything back that I did," Burnett said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "It's easy to sit here after and say 'we should have did this, we should have did that.' If the outcome was different, we wouldn't even be talking about it.
"I was just trying to secure the catch, I got the ball in my hand and the main thing was just gaining possession of the ball. And I got the 'no mas' signal, which means 'no more, no return, get down' and secure possession of the ball, give our offense the ball."
We agree. Teammate Julius Peppers gave the signal for Burnett to slide, which is easy to see when watching the replay. It's hard to determine how much room Burnett truly had to maneuver, but it's not like he was headed for a pick-six touchdown.
