A Jacksonville player picked up the live ball and ran it back for six as Burress stood emanating waves of befuddlement." And later in his career, he was motoring toward the end zone for an easy untouched 6 and whacked the ball off his hip for a fumble.

What a bonehead. 100 dollar talent with a 10 cent head.

Wow twice!

I knew about the original mental meltdown - the second shows a weird lack of co-ordination - im presumeing he didn't purposefully hit the ball off his thigh?

I guess we are all just waiting for his 1st in a Giants shirt.

Who is that player?


Tom
Ron Shanklin??

Who was the first Steelers' player to pass for 1,000 yards in a season (1,004 yards)?
