In a bit of a stunner, the Giants have closed the door on Plaxico Burress. In what was originally thought to be a no brainer, the Giants did an about face and are looking elsewhere. I am sure this has to do in part to Plax cancelling his visit earlier this week due to illness, which it sounds like the Giants did not believe.
As a Giant fan, I am glad they passed as I feel Burress is a bit of a head case who would wilter under the NY pressure. They SHOULD have gone hard after Mason when he was cut by the Titans.
As for the future, I am sure the Giants will go after some lower lever WR (Bradford, Gardner) and will look to the draft. As for Plaxico, if he does not wind up in Minnesota, I will be stunned.
I think you're an asshole. No, no, let me correct that, an immature asshole. Which is fine, except that you're marrying my daughter and I'm afraid that my grandchildren are gonna be little assholes.
I just didn't see him & Coughlin getting along. Burress is too much of a "me" player. I'm really interested in seeing where he ends up. The Vikes could really use & afford him, but they are in a good position to possibly draft Mike Williams or Braylon Edwards.
Anyone know what Plaxico is trying to get, moneywise?
Originally posted by Roy. The Philly papers (philly.com) keep insisting that the Eagles will swoop in if Plaxico becomes a bargain. Not sure how I feel about that. TWO loudmouth WRs on the same team?
Don't forget we still have Freddy Mitchell!

Unfortunately MVP and Heisman awards will probably always be dominated by offensive skill players, it will take something amazing for a O-lineman or defensive player to win one. Even when Charles Woodson won his he had a key role as a return man.
