Default Shockey critical of Plaxico's Punishment.

Dan Martin, of the New York Post, reports New York Giants TE Jeremy Shockey criticized head coach Tom Coughlin and his staff for deciding to bench WR Plaxico Burress for the first quarter of the Week 3 game. "I understand his point, but it's really not fair," Shockey said of Coughlin's decision to bench Burress after he was late for team meetings. "It affects the whole team. What can you do? As players, we play. Coaches coach. But you should have your best players on the field. The whole offense suffered from him not being out there." Burress entered the game early in the second quarter.


Plaxico in "General" Tom Coughlin's doghouse.
You gotta love it.

I think most fans of pro football know that Tom Coughlin's a fanatic about being on time for meetings..........I guess "Drops-ico" has to learn the hard way.

He is just so not gonna fit in in NY...Him and Coughlin will never find a good working realtionship, and the media will just blister him unmercifully when he starts dropping important passes out of sheer laziness and lack of effort...

What about the man Shockey himself - for all his great talent he hasn't achieved anything of note yet in the NFL - yet appears to think nothing of questioning his coaches disciplinary methods.

I would say that these two are on collision course in the not-too-distant future.

Cheers

Yup, I concur...you just look at Shockey on one end with his long hair and his rebellious attitude, and The Strict Disciplinarian Coughlin on the other, and you know there's going to be trouble sooner or later...

shockey questionning the discipline is definitely not a smart move. i bet his leash was just tightened a notch! plexico seems to be bringing it on the field though. i would not be suprised to see him continue to develop but i heard he missed 2 meetings. ouch. is it me or does he look even bigger and taller in a giants uniform?

The thing to me is wasn't Plaxico benched for showing up late to meetings? It's Plaxico's fault for not being able to be there on time. Coughlin was showing him he won't put up with it. As for Shockey critizing Coughlin's decision, very bad move. Never a good thing to publicly critize the coach.

i don't know from what i've seen plax seems like he's doing good there, but he is still the same old plax that just catches and falls to the ground with no one around him. i wish he would've stayed and had a different attitude he is a good player regardless if y'all like him or not. i hate shockey though so i hope he gets banned from the league for those comments lol damn hick

how come a lot of ppl hate on plax? is it because the way he left or becasue y'all think he sucks? i personally like him and hope he does well with the giants. but it seems he's never gonna change the way he plays the game catch and then fall to the ground. that would've been tight if we could've kept him and hines together cause he did make the game easier for a lot of the players cause for some reason the defenses were afraid of him and the way ben is throwing the ball he could have a lot more yards if he would've stuck around

Because he is the epitome of wasted talent...If God saw fit to give me that build and those skills, I'd be busting my ass morning noon and night to try to become the best WR the NFL has ever seen...He just sits back and takes it all for granted in cruise control.

If you could stick Wayne Chrebet's heart and brain in Plex's body, he'd probably be able to give Jerry Rice a run for his money...as it stands now, he'll simply be a footnote in the NFL record books...or the subject of a an NFL films blooper reel for that stupid spike...
