Lions notes: Nate Burleson, Ben Roethlisberger, more

Lions notes looks at Nate Burleson, Ben Roethlisberger and much more.

  • Nate Burleson now has a year's supply of Skittles to go along with his year's supply of DiGiorno. Speaking of DiGiorno, Burleson met with executives in Chicago last week and pitched them an outstanding idea for a commercial.

  • One other DiGiorno/Burleson note... this is just hilarious:
  • Ben Roethlisberger had a great comment on Wednesday, and Ndamukong Suh had a great response to it.
  • Suh was in Chicago on Tuesday night to watch Michigan State play Kentucky in basketball, and he caught up with Magic Johnson at the game.

  • The Pittsburgh Steelers clearly have a lot of respect for Calvin Johnson.

  • Johnson is again ranked fourth in the latest MVP watch.

  • Aaron Rodgers is hoping to return in time for the Green Bay Packers' game against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving.

  • As noted by Behind the Steel Curtain, the Steelers are going to wear their (ugly) throwback uniforms on Sunday against the Lions.
