i was always a fan of plexico and his potential. i cant blame him for taking a job that would pay him more money and make him more of the focus of the offense.

well i miss plax cause he opened things up a lot more but i think the reason we ain't winning is because we didn't do nothing to better our team in the offseason. sure we kept mostly everyone but that's not always a good thing........if we miss the playoffs it could be a good thing cause we'll actually see some changes to makeing us better for next year

i dont miss Plax. I will agree that he made some great plays, but he has MISSED just as many easy passes. Plax had his days but we need someove more reliable...The only thing we lost in him was someone to strech the field......but with ward......Heath and Stale out of the backfield...there is no reason someone isnt open......We just need to open up our passing game so ben can earn his wings.....once he gets more experience....hes gonna be great...

I don't miss Plaxico, but I do miss the deep threat he brought. Plax would make some amazing grab and then drop easy passes. We need a tall deep threat in there to stretch the field. I think this upcoming offseason we need to bring in a deep threat to open up the field.

If plax performed for us like he is now w/ giants..sure I'd miss him.. but was nothing but an underachieving, whining, lack of production, dissapointment for us.

We wouldnt be any better off than we were with him.

I miss Plax, but then again he wouldn't be playing like this for us. He wouldn't be happy unless he was #1.

Plax and the Steelers both acted in what they thought were their best interests. Steelers could not afford both Plax and Ward - I am glad they kept Ward.

Plax wanted to be the go to guy and (after a less than overwhelming response to his free agency) has found good fortune in New York. Since the Steelers were not going to work to keep him, hard to begrudge his success elsewhere.

It's a cold blooded business - just ask Rod Woodson how long the Steelers kept him after his torn ACL to start the 1995 season. I will never blame a player for taking care of his financial interests through free agency as long as he does not quit on his current team.

My sentiments exactly. Plus he called Pittsburgh a racist city!
