NEW ORLEANS -- Corey Graham stopped short of a Joe Namath moment here at Super Bowl XLVII media day.

Graham, a Turner-Carroll grad and Baltimore Ravens cornerback, made a quasi-guarantee.

Graham was approached by Kevin Frazier, host of entertainment-news program "omg! Insider." Frazier wanted Graham to come up with Twitter hash tags for certain topics.

"I don't even tweet!" Graham said. "How are you going to ask me to answer?"

With some cajoling, Graham went ahead with the word-association exercise.

Beyonce Knowles: "Fantastic."

Destiny's Child reunion: "Amazing."

Winning the Super Bowl: "Epic."

Your coach beating his brother: "A must."

The one thing you won't do when you're in New Orleans: (long pause) "Lose!"

"I didn't know if I should say it or not," Graham said with a laugh. "I thought it, but it's one of those situations where you're like, 'Aaaahhhhhhh ... I guess so.' "
