    He's not talented enough to be worth the head ache.
    After his year suspension and any prison time, he'll be what...33?
    Not having played in a year or so?
    Not worth it, especially when you consider how much money he's going to want.

    It doesn't sound like it's gonna be too easy for him to avoid it. If that was the case though, I'd love if we got him.
    Per Paolantonio, the 3.5-year mandatory minimum sentence commonly is avoided via a guilty plea to third-degree criminal possession of a loaded and unlicensed weapon.

    But Paolantonio points out that, in 2008, nearly 80 percent of those convicted of a third-degree charge served time.

    We believe that, as a practical matter, there’s no way that Burress gets out of this thing without serving time.
    When New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg threw down the gauntlet in the wake of the incident, the chances of Burress skating evaporated.

    Plex will do some time but not years in prison. He will probaly get 30 - 90 days then probation.

    Yah I bet he will get 1-3 months

    T.I a convicted felon was caught trying to buy weapons and got 1 year

    I doubt Plax will face anything close to that

    IF Plaxico is available to play this season after his legal troubles and Sheriff Goodell, I'd love to bring him in.

    Lol.
    Yeah, let's put Plax right up there with Vick...

    The guy did something dumb, but he's nowhere near Vick.
    He pulled some stupid shit, but some people are acting like he's up there with Vick, Pacman, etc... I agree with Mars to a degree on second chances, depending on exactly what they did, for example, I don't want us to take a chance on Vick, and I don't mind if he gets a second chance somewhere, I just don't want it to be here.
    I'd give Plaxico a go.

    We should have never let Plax get out of Winter Park when he visited us four years ago after his Steelers contract.
    We had him here ... had the numbers working ... and should have locked him in. He would have never shot himself ... he would be catching Super Bowl winning TDs for us. <sigh>

    For real. I can't hate on Plax for carrying a gun, especially in a NY nightclub. He was stupid in not having a permit, and maybe sweatpants weren't the best option.....
    But I'll take him. He's obviously not going to shoot himself again and Minneapolis nightclubs are a far cry from NY ones. He's one of the elite receivers in the league. And with two backups, the more talented receivers the better.

    Re: Giants release Plaxico Burress

    Come on folks.
    Let's be real here.
    Dude was jettisoned out of Pittsburgh and has been nothing but a pain in the ass for Coughlin since going to NY.
    Missed or was late to > 50% of Team meetings, publicly stated that he would rather "pay the fines than go" (don't ask for a link, it was on SportsCenter).
    Sure, kid can play, but, he will be suspended (again, this time by the League), he will more than likely go to jail, AND, he's a pain in the ass for a coaching staff.


    I would never hire a person to work for me with those credentials, never.

    Thank you, no.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
