I think it was inside the club. Not that it makes the situation any less stupid.

Now Jay Cutler can have someone to throw to.

Another player that has a lot of talent, but not enough of common sense.

Have Buffalo take Plax. That would be fun to watch.

Plax and T.O.: priceless.

I think the Beav may be on to something.........Once Plax gets his ass out of jail, he can join the Super Bowl bound Chicago Bears and their new stud, Jay Cutler.

I never thought this was that big a deal. It was a classic stupid mistake. He shot himself, it's not like he was a cancer on the team was he? I don't get this wierdo holier-than-though thing the NFL has going on sometimes.

To me it seems that the Giants may have an inside line on the penalties Burress will be facing. Come June, he may be locked up for a considerable amount of time. If so, the Giants did what they had to do.

Here it says that Burress turned down a restructured deal offered by the Giants, one that I've heard his agent was suggesting he take.

As a Bills fan desperate for a playoff-type season, I'd gladly take Plaxico to go along with T.O. Playing in the same division as the Patriots all these years means you have to grab up talent when it's there. Also, Plax merely shooting himself in the leg puts him on the list of relatively well-behaved players in the NFL. Maybe he can offer some advice to Marshawn Lynch before he shoots himself. Lynch already tried to mow a lady over in downtown Buffalo, so he needs to definitely watch his step.

Don't think Plax will be starting a driving school anytime soon, dyams:

"It appears Burress' driving is as wild as his shooting; the ticket was his fifth driving infraction in Florida in the past month alone."

Why even compare T.O. with Plax? Plax may have a Super Bowl ring but he doesn't have the skills that T.O. has displayed in his career. Also, T.O. hasn't shot himself in the leg and will be going to jail like some former Giant that shall remain nameless.
