Default Plaxico Buress.......

Well, it seems Plax has found his home and fits in really well. To be honest, I'm happy for him. His personality just wasn't a strong fit here. In New York he's showing he can be a great reciever and it's very obvious that him and Eli have developed a strong connection in the first four weeks.

No doubt he can have breakout games like this, the problem is will he continue to do it or will he get kinda bored like he did here. Not to mention I don't think Coughlin will let him off for Mother's Day as well so then he'll get tired of that too. I think he is just riding high on new location/scenery.

He did have dropped passes against the Chargers, similar to the ones that we were used to seeing here. Right in his hands and he couldn't hold onto it. He's already drawn the ire of Coughlin being late to meetings and started Shockey talking about how holding him out of the 1st quarter hurt the team. He needed to have a good game this week, let's see if he can be consistant. Something he couldn't quite do for us.

i am happy to that he's finally somewhat living up to his potential. for some reason i've always liked plax but didn't like the way he left. i hope he continues to improve and play to his potential cause it'll be ashame to waste the talent that god gave him

i don't think he'll get bored there, he's the main target there, here he was second on a running base team so he never got the catches he wanted. so i think he'll blossom there with eli "i don't wanna go to san diego daddy " manning throwing him the ball a lot. to bad he'll never enjoy the sucess like he would've with big ben.

the reason i think he couldn't do that for us was because we are a running team and we didn't throw the ball to him like the giants are going to, so stat wise he's gonna have a lot more sucess with the giants then he could've got with us

I always liked him but he started shooting his mouth off to the press about how it was good to actually be at a training camp where players actually accomplished something. I don't want to try and quote him directly but I remember his statements didn't have a good reflection on his feelings about the Steelers. Just take yourself to another team and play, there's no reason to talk sh*t. I don't like that crap and it's not like he didn't have the opportunity to make a case whether or not he should've stayed. He didn't grab the opportunity, thankfully, we ended up keeping the better of the two. IMO anyway.

I always liked watching Plax play. I hope he continues to be the Giants star receiver.
