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

3 catches in a preseason game means nothing...Sweed on the other hand, yeah, didn't think it was going to work out either.

I'm sure you'll figure it out on your own, but thumper is a bit of a narcissistic tool.

I thought this thread was about Plex having another mis-adventure with firearms and thought he exploded or something

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?
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.

Who the hell is "Battles"? You must not be a real fan because you don't even know the players' names.

That's your prerogative. I, on the other hand, choose to predict he is
going to do very well, assuming he doesn't suffer a major injury. I can
tell just be viewing those few plays that Plax is primed to have his best
year in his career.
