Default Plax Burress

Now you see why they resigned him? We could use that height and veteran savvy right now in the redzone.

Yes but think of how valuable he is now to the people at the Orthopedic clinic when someone needs something retrieved from a high shelf.

He would have been a big help. As Cutler mentioned before the Bears game, it's tough to have to hit the little guys down field all the time. With Plax you can throw it high where either he gets it or nobody does. Also, depending on the angle of the route he's running, he's open when shorter WR's are not. I think he would have been our #3 this year, especially since Ben needs to throw the ball quick behind this O line. Luckily we have Moye, he just needs to get A LOT more playing time.

My question is, since he's was hurt in camp and we are now going into Week 7, why post about Plax?

C'mon he would have been a big help 10 years ago...He would be as irrelevant as Crotch..Probably less

Well I guess we're all entitled to our own opinions. His first catch against the Browns at the end of last year showed that he can go up in between THREE players and get the ball.
