The last game proved he could contribute, and guess what, they won!

What does this team need with yet another speedy, stone-handed 5' 11" 195 lb. receiver anyway? We have enough of those. We need a large, physical WR and another TE to complement Miller.
I'm guessing none of you remember Plax playing in Pittsburgh the first time around. He had all the talent then too. He was known for stopping in the middle of routes, lazy at times and other than 1 season was pretty average.

The Steelers decided to sign Hines Ward big and let Plax walk away.

Fast forward to 2012......8 years older, a convicted felon and had not played in over a year. I just don't grasp how people on this board could possibly think this guy could be a key piece to a Winning team.
