David Nelson would be crazy not to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Kelsi Reich under the bright lights in Cowboys Stadium.

Nelson, an emerging star for the Buffalo Bills, has been dating Reich, a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, for some time now and the two will be doing their respective jobs tomorrow afternoon in Dallas.

Nelson is saying that he has a special surprise planned if he scores a touchdown, but said he won’t “pull an Ian Johnson” and propose to his girlfriend.

Why not, David?

Look how awesome that move was.

Johnson got a ton of respect from men and women for converting the winning two-point conversion in Boise State’s 43-42 overtime victory in the Fiesta Bowl and then seconds later, got down on one knee and presented a ring to his cheerleader girlfriend and asked her to marry him.

Of course, she said yes.

Terrell Owens also "proposed" to a cheerleader on the field, although his wasn’t as sincere and was just goofy.

Nelson’s proposal would be genuine and the first time that I can think of, and some research shows, that a player would get engaged to a cheerleader on the field during an NFL game.

David is from Wichita Falls, Texas and Kelsi is from The Woodlands, Texas. Both are going to have a bunch of friends and family at the game and Nelson reportedly has 80 tickets for those close to him to see him play near his hometown.

Is what Nelson said to Inside the Bills Blog just a smoke screen?

"I can honestly tell you 100 percent it will not be a proposal. Been there and done that,” said Nelson. “I want to do something that hasn’t been done before, but the situation has to be right. I’m not a big celebration guy when I score, but this is a special situation and if something happens I’ll be looking to enjoy the situation.”

Nothing would be more special than Nelson proposing to his girlfriend in the premier stadium in the NFL after scoring a touchdown. Nothing.
