i like him, he came up big for us ALOT last year. but some games it was like he wasnt even on the field. but he is growing into a star reciever. i like watching tiki barber too so the giants are ok by me

no youre not the only one. i think plex is great for eli and vice versa. our offense didnt quite maximize his skills. it looks like hes one of those types of receivers who needs to be heavilly involved to keep focus. hes making some great catches and blocking real well for the giants. being a steeler definitely made him a better player. i bet vikings are kicking themselves for not signing him and to a lesser degree the eagles. i thought hed be better off with 1 of those teams but now i think he is in the perfect position. eli will benefit more than anyone. funny how no one has even mentionned a sophmore slump with eli. i dont know if its the uniforms or what but plex looks even taller and more yoked now. hes definitely a beast and for lacking randy moss speed is doing a good job getting open.

Even though he left Pittsburgh, he' still one of my favorite recievers. Glad to see him have a nice game, I usually switch to the Giants games to see how he's doing.

Plax is a true talent, but his work ethic and personality did not mesh with the Steelers. He'll be good with the Giant's as long as he's is THE star receiver and as long as Coughlin can put up with his antics. It's good to see him doing well though, and I'm sure he'll be equally as happy for us when we bring it home without him this year!

....it would be cool if the NFL expanded into Mexico and Plax played for the Mexican team..."Plaxico en Mexico." I can see it already!

He's in a new home, w/ new faces..he's happy for a while, and yeah he had some big games for us..but what you look for in a WR is consistency..and Plax was anything but during his career to this point.

again a lot of it wasn't his fault, to be consistent you got to get the ball thrown your way more then 3 times a game.

To be honest I never really cared for Plax. I heard a lot about how ignorant he was to people in the city. The other thing is he would make these great catches and miss the easy ones.

I disagree. To be an impact player you have to have it thrown more than 3 times. To be consistent, you just need to catch the 3 that are thrown to you.

His consistency frustrated me but for some reason, I always liked Plaxico. I hope he does well in NY. He didn't fit in here. Yes, we are a running team but he also was never going to be the man at WR. Everyone is too in love with Ward (for good reason).

I guess u missed the 10 passes he has dropped from week 1 lol and he has 3 flags for offsides so far ,yes he can have a break out game but 1 game is likly 2 would be shocking lol.and u have to realize they played a team who was double teaming shockey not plax so he never got coverd the whole game.

The guy is a incident waiting to happen. Yes he will do well at times, but watch and see if he is consistant. I think you will see more of the late to meeting/excuses plax, more than the big play plax. Only thing that does get my goat was that we got nothing for him. I still feel to this day we should have tagged and traded him. As we picked high for him + he had big games, you can bet we would at least got a 2nd or third for him.
