So much for those who claimed he wasn't worth anything.

That he was too hurt.

That time in the clink ruined him.

He looks better than ever.

Just as I knew he would.

3 for 66, TD. He will be a difference maker for NY this year.

Damn it. I knew it. Oh, and this just in: Sweed didn't turn out to provide
that big WR role this year. That didn't quite turn out, as I said.

So you are proclaiming a victory for your opinion based off of one preseason game? Against the Bungles? Don't you think you may be jumping the gun a little? I mean, he could still have a totally shit year. He could get injured the very first regular season game of the year and not play at all.

Just seems a little bit early to call him a difference maker. Of course he could do all the things you proclaim that you think he'll do...but won't you just look like a total dumbass if he doesn't?

He played well against the Cincinnati Bengals, possibly the worst team in the league, in the preseason. I would hold off judgement until he does something meaningful.

Based on the title of this thread, I was expecting 5 catches for 150 yards and 4 TDs. But based on Plex's real stats, against a crap team, in the preseason and saying "Plex blows up" ... I'd say Cotchery had an awesome game himself. 2 receptions for 49 yards and a TD. Remember, the Steelers were playing the "Dream Team". :toofunny:

The Jets FO were stupid to let a guy like Cotchery leave over Plex. The Steelers definitely got the best of that deal (Cotchery for the vet minimum).

Using the logic that preseason games are a conclusive indicator of how the season will play out, the Jets adding All-Pro Plax will be of no benefit since the 2 blowout preseason wins by the Pats over Jax and Tanpa Bay means New England is going 19-0 and will beat the Jets every time they play this year, after which Plax will sign a $100 million contract that the Jets wil not be able to afford as Burress gets ready to enter Canton based on last night's performance against the legendary defense of the Cincinnati Bengals

I have vision. I just can see things develop with more confidence than
average. Yes, he could blow an ACL or something, making him a non-factor.
But that can be said for every player on the planet. Trying to predict
injuries, or lack there of, is not even possible.

But in my opinion, if he stays healthy, he will be a major factor in making
the Jets better than last year. It doesn't matter that it was his first game,
even a pre-season game. I can tell just be looking at how he moves and
the 3 grabs he made that he will in fact be a major factor, unless he gets
hurt.

The years in prison made him far hungrier. And his talent was never
in question.

Anyone thinking Brown, Battles or Sanders will make a bigger impact
hasn't been paying attention. Oh, and the assertion that Sweed will
do as well or better than Plex is, of course, already a known laugh.

This is a wildly gung ho straw man argument. One _can_ assess if a player
looks ready to rock, when going against any starters in preseason. That is
not any where near the same as claiming a _team_ will do well based
on wins in the preseason. EVERYONE knows this. Too many variables. Some
teams game plan for PS, others do not. SOME teams leave in starters for
longer than other teams, and will obviously be more likely to win. Stop
with the straw man madness.

Belichick, Patriots look like they're back ... with a vengeance...

We are only halfway through a preseason after a protracted lockout. There is so much we do not know. But the Patriots look like a monster team. A lot like 2007.

Be afraid, NFL. Be very afraid.

I recognize putting any weight on preseason gamnes is nonsense - see my thread in the NFL section on Pats worship

OTOH you apparently are gullible enough to rely upon a decent performance in a pre-season game against the Bengals as an indication of future results if it allows you to
try and ride your hobby horse about how great Burress is

I have to ask - are you related to bobby jr.? His posts have an uncanny similarity in many ways to yours with regard to the leaps of illogic.

It has very much to do with the Steelers. Plex came in for a 2-meal
visit a few weeks back, meaning there was a real possibility that
he could come back to Pgh. Some of us thought that would have
really given the team an overall boost, while others claimed Sweed
was likely to be a bigger factor than would signing Plex. I asserted
that Plex going to the Jets made them better and, at the same time,
made Pgh weaker for not having him.

I am now stating, that, after viewing how he looked, that my original
assertion is even more likely to be on the $. (My take that Sweed
would do nothing for us this season has already been proven
100% correct.)

$3 million would "blow up the cap?" I'd say paying Aaron Smith
$6 million and Foote $3 million does far more damage along
those lines. That's $9 mill spending on players who:

A.) are not even starters, or
B.) are likely to get hurt and miss most the season... on,
C.) a unit that has younger guys to get the job done, period, having
spent two first-round picks on the unit in recent years.

Plex is more motivated to produce than at any time in his career.
He also no longer takes things for granted, and that improved
mindset will prove invaluable.

Belichick, Patriots look like they're back ... with a vengeance...

They were never "not back." They won 14 games last year and have
done nothing but added to-shelf talent. Sure, they got ambushed by
a motivated Jet's team in the play offs, but it's not as if NE was considered
"down" last year. I don't think you can ever say a team that goes 14-2 needs
to "come back."


We are only halfway through a preseason after a protracted lockout. There is so much we do not know. But the Patriots look like a monster team. A lot like 2007.

I would have considered that so without ever looking at their PS
results. They are time-tested and as long as they got Brady
and Belichick up there, they are always a threat to win lots of games.

Be afraid, NFL. Be very afraid.


They are what they are. And one of the things they are are
Steeler killers.


I was simply flipping your nonsensical argument back at you

No you were creating one in a non sequitur fashion.

I recognize putting any weight on preseason gamnes is nonsense - see my thread in the NFL section on Pats worship

Making conclusions on a team's win-loss record in PS is ludicrous.
Making evaluations from individual players, especially those play
the other team's starters, is not. There is a colossal different.

OTOH you apparently are gullible enough to rely upon a decent performance in a pre-season game against the Bengals as an indication of future results if it allows you to
try and ride your hobby horse about how great Burress is

Oh, I will take my "hobby horse" into the season, and, sans any major
injury, will be proven 100% right. I have the vision to see it happen, even
though no regular season games have begun.

I have to ask - are you related to bobby jr.? His posts have an uncanny similarity in many ways to yours with regard to the leaps of illogic.

I don't know "Bobby Jr." But my logic is sterling and structurally sound.
Yours? A bit fleeting, even judging by your assertions in this post alone. Once
you throw in non sequiturs all bets are off. :wave:

Rex has been there for 2 years, taking over a team mostly void
of talent until he got there. In those two years he made it to
two AFCC games. You want to point the dirty end of the stick
at those results be my guest. Rex took over a 9-7 team and
they have only been getting better ever since. Tomlin took
over a team that was 1 year removed from winning a Super
Bowl. Granted, he did great with that team since, other than
his first year, where he worked the team to death, and they
limped into the play offs, exhausted. But he learned.

I did want Pgh to re-arrange some inappropriate salaries to
get Plex. I am not afraid to take claim to that assertions. Aaron
Smith and Foote are not being paid an appropriate salary. And
doing nothing about it hurts this team's chances. With the Jets
having Burress on one side and Holmes on the other, they
will win lots of games. Sad that NY took _both_ our first-round
WR picks.

This observation from another hater

Bill Parcells turns 70 today.

ESPN has just hired Parcells for 15 appearances on air this season. He'll be on the first Sunday and again the next night, commenting on two teams he used to coach, New England and Miami, who open in South Florida. I hope he has a few more lines like the one he had on a radio show the other day with Keyshawn Johnson and Cris Carter, both of whom said they thought Plaxico Burress was going to have a big impact on the Jets. When they started talking about how many catches he'd have, Parcells said: "Whatever you guys say, I'll take the under.''

It's one thing if you're a Washington fan, then sure, start dreaming and forming your wish list. But why bother contemplating how much this or that free agent will benefit the Steelers?

The same people that say the Steelers did nothing about the CB position this year even though they drafted two new ones and brought in two more last week are the ones who think we should have signed Plax. I am guessing that Plax does not make it to game 5 without some bad injury or hamstring pull due to his age and lack of playing over the past two years. I think the Cotchery signing was much better.

I'll reserve judgement on Plax until he faces

Ravens defense week 4
Patriots defense week 5
Chargers defense week 7
Patriots defense week 10
Eagles defense week 15

Basically until the end of the season. Even then there are too many schools of thought out there as to what a successful season will be for him.

-Some think he needs to have a 1000 yard plus season a ton of touchdowns
- Some (like myself) tend to think that if he has 800-900 yards plus some clutch touchdowns or key first downs he'll be a huge contribution
- Some think that even if he has a fair regular season but is a non-factor in post-season it was worth it
- Some could care less about regular season and just want him to show up in the post-season (see Sanchez and Braylon Edwards -both arguably not playing huge until postseason)

steelfury02
08-23-2011, 09:02 AM
I wouldn't put him above Cotchery at this point and that is like comparing apples to oranges anyways. Two completely different types of receivers and situations. We had a better receiving core without Cotchery. The Jets needed Plax way more than we did. Cotchery just puts us over the top.

Just look at the tape - you would have thought the Jets just won the AFC championship over the Bengals the way their entire team (Sanchez, Rex and pretty much the entire broadcasting crew) celebrated when Plex caught the TD pass. It was the first time in 2 plus years they've had someone who could beat the blitz and having someone to potentially rely on other than Holmes.

We already had a blitz beater in Wallace, a reliable vet in Hines, early bloomers in Brown and Sanders, not to mention a wild card in Randle El. Not even talking about Heath Miller either. Now we might have a second reliable tight end and Cotchery? When was the last time the Jets had a meaningful tight end? They were able to ground and pound, but as soon as a team took that away they were done.

i dont understand how some of you can say brown is going to do great this year because he looks good in the preseason but then you insult someone for saying plex will do well because he had a great game. its nothing more then an opinion and everyone is entitled to there own

He's not being insulted for his opinion. He's being insulted because he acts like a complete douche in expressing that opinion not to mention acting like a complete douche in general.

He played well against the Cincinnati Bengals, possibly the worst team in the league, in the preseason. I would hold off judgement until he does something meaningful.

Oh no. He's right and we're all wrong. And our FO sucks for not realizing that Burress IS THE SECOND COMING. Even after one game against a powerhouse like the Bengals any idiot can see we screwed up big time. Our season is over. OK I'll shut up now!:tt04:

obviously, bengals are gonna go 16-0..this year... you couldnt tell that off their preseason performances?. you didnt get the memo???? you should be kicked off the board for that... and Plax is gonna have 4000 catches for 40000 yards and 4000 tds...

I swear, I've never heard anyone use the same words/phrases as often as you do. Are you intentionally just regurgitating these words/phrases to appear smarter? I have to tell you, it doesn't work in your favor. Maybe consult a thesaurus sometime?

Your tactics in arguing/debating aren't exactly the most genius you know....and you do very little to clean up this board. Trust me.

Mere assertions without proof statements? Again? I know you can
do better. As far as using a thesaurus, that reference does not apply
to a collection of words to form descriptive phrases, as it only applies
to single-word descriptions. One CAN use Google to help define said
phrases, but in more of a descriptive manner, as opposed to giving you
alternative, single words.

I think your board members would benefit from truly understanding the
meanings of these key phrases, as, if one commits these low-level
tactics, it damages their credibility and gives them a FAIL in debate.

WTF are you going on about? Seriously? I said WORDS/PHRASES you ignorant twat. So yes, you can use a thesaurus to come up with another word for "assertion", "non sequitur"...and yes, there are even synonyms for "straw man".

What kind of proof statements do you want from me? Cause I don't have the kind of time needed to skim through every post of yours and count how many times you use the same tired words/phrases in your very flimsy arguments.

And sorry to tell you, but you have absolutely zero room to talk about any other posters credibility....being that you have none yourself.

What a joke.

Thumper was a pretty good teacher. Afterall, we've learned that if you're a male over 40, live in your parents' basement and play on the computer all day :wakeup: ... well, people are going to call you things such as (but not limited to): "asshat", "clown", "asswipe" , "dumper" and "loser".

Hopefully, this lifetime ban will be motivation for "asshat" to walk up those stairs, exit the dark, dreary cellar, go outside and maybe take a walk. Maybe shower, shave, put on some clean clothes and see if there are any ladies down at the local library you could share a thesaurus with. It beats sitting in that basement doing nothing but :jerkit: all day long.

Last night's shutout was part of the master plan - Antonio Brown has a great preseason, Plax lays low as he baits the Jets into trading Plax to the Steelers for Brown straight up - it's called winning
