those were 2 awesome catches last night. and while he did let steelerfans down, he would routinely make those circus grabs and drop the seemingly easy ones. i enjoy watching him as a giant.

He also had some great blocks.

All Manning had to do was throw the ball up over the colts dbs' heads and Plaxico could go get it. It was like watching a high school game with one huge kid on the field.

Tony, I don't hate Plax at all. I just got tired of what you said in your post how he would make the impossible catch but then drop the easy ones. Plus the comments he made after the loss to the Pats in the AFC title game was the last straw for me. I don't wish Plax any harm and I hope he lives up to the expectations of being the 8th pick in the 2000 NFL draft. Overall Plax had a good career with us but didn't live up to the expectations that the Steelers and the fans had for him.

My sentiments too. He should have the chance to grow up and excel. I'd be glad to see him man up and do well for the G-Men. Because he was a Steeler is the responsibility of Cowher/Colbert. Our latest first rounder is no exception. I hope the parallels with Santonio don't come to fruition. I'm 'betting' they will (hey...you have to pick black or red on the wheel). I hope I'm wrong. But money doesn't make this kind of problem any better. 9.5 times out of 10 it makes it worse.

I liked the three nice blocks that were called for Illegal Block/Block in the Back Penalties.
Plaxico is me first type of player and will always come up small when he's needed most.

He is one of the best in the NFL. He played for Michigan State I loved watching him play, his hands were the size of my Buick but off the field he was/is a headcase.

He did drop a couple easy ones, and he also had those penalties.

I love watching the athleticism when he's at his best, but he's all highs and lows. I'm satisfied with him performing like that for someone else, instead of spiking live balls for the Steelers. He'll make those circus catches, sure; but he'll also take you right out of the game when you need him the most.

Remember when he left everyone was saying we needed another tall wr to replace him?

Look what happened, the Steelers won the Superbowl

I don't hate Plax, but his huge ego was a problem for the Steelers and will be a problem for the Giants, too. While I wouldn't put him in the Top 10 receivers in the league, he does have a lot of talent - his problem is that his 'tude sometimes gets in the way of utilizing that talent to its fullest potential. He is TO's mini me.

His easy drops and his departing comments pertaining to our city and it's fans were enough for me to come to the conclusion that he's a bonehead.

I'm guessing his departing comments are not as big of a deal for those who happen to reside in other cities. For those of us from Pittsburgh, a good number of us took his narrowminded and idiotic comments as a personal insult. How could we not?

As you know 83, I live in another city and state but I also took his comments personally and I have watched this guy play ball since college here at Michigan State. His remarks about Eli throwing a better ball than ben (I am paraphrasing) really got to me and he hates the city of Pittsburgh! No, I am not about to forget what he said. Like I said, in the first place, the guy is a headcase and so is TO. I respect their ability, but do not like either of them as a person.

I really don't care about his comments pertaining to Eli vs Ben. His comments pertaining to my city and the fans in Pittsburgh is what pissed me off. I still think he is a choke artist with a mild case of the TO syndrom. I'd pass on him tomorrow if I had the chance.

I guess it's a Pittsburgh thing.....oh well.

Plax is the "Mr. October" of the NFL. Unfortunately for him, most of the games that really matter are played in January.

Plax has often been a spectacular regular season player. However, in addition to being a locker room cancer he consistently has come up short in the playoffs as a Giant and a Steeler. No bitterness on my part with that observation, just a statement of fact.

The Steelers had to make a choice between signing Ward or Burress and I do not believe any Steeler fan thinks the Steelers made the wrong choice.

I've always liked him. I'm glad he is doing well as a Giant.

I don't regret the Steelers choosing Hines over Plax for one minute and I don't believe the Steelers do either. Tough, gritty, hard working receiver and best blocking wideout in the league, total teamer, great 'tude and a locker room leader versus a receiver with a lot of talent and potential who has earned his nickname of "Slacks-ico", bad attitude, big mouth and a locker room staph infection - that's a no brainer. :cool:
