Cortland Finnegan: If the Rams don’t win it all, the Lions will
- Updated: June 9, 2013
St. Louis Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan released his power rankings Sunday for the upcoming NFL season. As busy as he is and seeing as ranking the NFL teams is not his forte, Finnegan listed his top two – the St. Louis Rams and the Detroit Lions. Seriously.
The Lions finished 2012 with a 4-12 record and one of those wins was against Finnegan’s Rams in Week One. The Rams finished 7-8-1. So yeah, neither of these teams are close to being in the top top of the league, let alone the top two. Finnegan’s favortism for his own team is expected and admirable. His reasoning behind putting the Lions second are all about Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford and the “good stuff” they picked up this year. Finnegan was quoted Sunday saying:
“You don’t have the name Megatron for any other reason other than you’re a bad man. So that’s where it’s at. They had a lot of good things going for them. Slot receivers, [Matthew] Stafford is amazing. They picked up some good stuff this year. So [Jim] Schwartz, he’s always going to put together a good team.”
Every NFL defensive back knows about Johnson and Stafford. So why would Finnegan makes this lofty (ridiculous) remarks? For one, he played for Jim Schwartz when Schwartz was the defensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans. Two, Finnegan was courted by the Lions last offseason but chose the Rams because the Rams could offer him more money. And three, Finnegan was talking to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press while in Detroit for a charity event when he went off the deep end. So, it would make sense why the eighth-year cornerback would make those statements.
One can take Finnegan’s predictions as blowing sunshine because he was in Detroit. Or one can take them as worthwhile and run to Vegas to throw cash at the 50/1 odds the Lions are getting. But if you’re crazy enough to do that, I’d ask Mr. Finnegan for a loan first.
