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.
Is he a key piece to a winning team? No, even Plax himself knows it. However, after all those years, maybe now he realizes that he couldn't be lazy and couldn't give up plays? It doesn't make him a better player than before. He's 36. But we are not saying he should be a No.1/No.2 either. What he brings to the Steelers is something that the Steelers don't have, especially when you take Heath Miller's injury into account.
