Exactly, and besides, it's not as thought the Bungles or the Clowns are courting him. The Eagles, Jets and Giants are all legitimate contenders, so the importance of winning another ring is a fake argument.

If that were the case, Fred Gibson and Limas Sweed would be our #1 and #2 recievers right now. Talent is what I am talking about. Steelers are not courting Plaxico because he is 6'5.

We can sure use Plex. Sewed hurt his hamstring already and like I said, will never contribuate to an nfl team. Sanders is having problems with his foot again and isnt practicing. I see Sanders never becoming the star he has the potential to become because of injuries.

We tried, which is good. I'm glad we atleast made an effort to bring him in and say what we needed to say.

Funny how he spends ALL day with us talking deals, talking former teammates and talking making a run and literally ONE minute with the Jets to make his decision. MONEY TALKS.

We will do our talking on the field, not FA.

Burress to the Jets...I knew he wouldn't resign. He just tried to get the price up for his services by getting teams involved.

It's probably a nice kick to the face to Big Ben. Since he always talks about wanting Plax back and wanting that tall receiver.

Maybe Sweed will learn to catch in the NFL.

We'll see how he likes it when noodle arm, dirty Sanchez is scuffing balls at his feet. Although, look at the bright side. It'll be nice to see him tear up New England's secondary so there's a positive in all of this.

Thing is, is that we are still over the cap. How in God's green Earth would we make an offer? The Jets probably did no talking. "Here is the signing paper. 1 year, 3 million guaranteed. Here's the pen. Take it or leave it" versus waiting for the Steelers to cut meat and that offer being less. It's simple logistics.
