Default Can our hometown crowd get into Burress's head?

Below is an article about Burress's tirades on the field last week. If our hometown crowd starts riding his ass we may have chance to get into his head and take him out of the game. All of these fines indicate that this guy is ready to blow up and melt down. I hope all of you folks who are going to the game ride him unmercifully. - mesaSteeler

Giants' Burress fined $45,000 for actions from Week 7 game
By Mike Sando
ESPN.com

This is becoming an expensive season for New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress.

Having already incurred a $117,000 team fine earlier this month, Burress drew $45,000 in additional fines from the NFL for his actions during and after the Giants' 29-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7.

The latest fines included $20,000 for verbally abusing an official during the game, another $20,000 for "inappropriate" comments about officiating after the game and $5,000 for throwing a football into the stands.

Burress criticized officials after they penalized him for offensive pass interference. Officials also penalized the Giants 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct after Burress argued with officials on the field. After the game, Burress called the ruling the worst he had ever seen.

The nine-year veteran returned to practice Friday after missing two days of work with a sore shoulder and stiff neck. He said he would be ready to play against the Steelers this weekend in his return to Pittsburgh.

"I had a full day of practice, no limitations, so I am ready to go," Burress said. "I have 48 hours to get ready for the game and I should be back to close to 100 percent."

Burress spoke before the league disclosed his fine.

Mike Sando covers the NFL for ESPN.com. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

I don't know about the crowd but I know Troy can.

There should be plenty of free space in his head, so it can't be too hard.

They'll get into his head. Just have to let the crowd have time. They'll do it.
