Who was throwing him the ball in NY? These details matter.

I'd rather have Cotchery than Plax to be honest.

All day. Plax is becoming more of a red-zone type threat than anything so I don't think the money is worth it anymore to sign him.

He never was really a scrappy WR to go with his big frame and sooner or later, that's going to catch up with him. Cotchery on the other hand, is pretty strong in every category. He's a more complete WR than Plax IMHO and will go after those tough balls to move the chains as well as be physical in the running game when the time is right. Also, I like his ability to get open and get Y.A.C. He has a quickness to him but is STRONG in stature. If we can sign Cotch long-term, he'll fill Hines's shoes in quite nicely for what it's worth.

Cotchery vs. Plax, it's a no-brainer.

Plax is done; a very limited red-zone target at best.

And with his attitude, who needs him. Haley won't.

I'd much rather stock the WR position via draft or free agency.

Why would we be looking for more Wr's? To fill a gap or have a reliable backup...I could see it. But we need to make a decision on Wallace before thinking of others.

Cotchery can stay! Some people are forgetting about the GAME TYING TOUCHDOWN in the playoffs.

How about some guys added for the O line?! We got rid of Arians, lets keep cranking with good moves!

Given the choice between Cotchery and Plax, I'd go with Cotchery.

But if we're in a position where we need to fill a spot, I'd consider Plax.

A few years ago I wouldn't be saying this but from what I've seen of him lately, I don't think he's the same person he was back before "the incident".

I think he's grown up a lot since then and compared to 'Tone over at the Florham Park Zoo, Plax is almost a voice of reason. Skill-wise, I couldn't say whether he or Cotchery is the better player, but if we find ourselves in a position of having to consider Plax, I think it'd be worth a shot.

Steelers need to get off that mentality of bringing back past players.
Plex will never be a steeler again....
