    A lot of people say, "well TO worked out for you guys, why not?"

    My thoughts? Because TO always worked his butt off. Big mouth, yes. Huge ego, yes. But he works like none other. He has a fire in him to win and plays as hard, if not harder, than anyone else on that field. The selfish TO? He put that baby to rest in the Super Bowl when he put his team in front of EVERYTHING, including himself.

    Plaxico has a terrible work ethic. He's nonchalant, seems like he doesn't care about anything but the dollar sign. He's blown off mini-camp without calling his coach. The week of his combine, he blew off Andy Reid and the Eagles FO who were WAITING for him to meet with him, to go to an NBA game with Mateen Cleaves. He's a slacker. He's the kind of guy that will need a punch in the teeth to get going (I'd love to see Trotter give it to him too)...lol.

    There is SUCH a difference between TO and Burress...and not just the fact that TO is a top 3 WR in the NFL right now. TO's attitude might turn people off, but the bottom line is, his teammates love him, he fires them up (was their biggest cheerleader when he was hurt) and he wants to win and plays hard. Gives ALL.

    Burress just never has. And I'm not willing to risk seeing him HURT this team for possibility that he might help.

    good post PhillyGirl.

    I don't know much about Burress and his work ethic but he seems like he is desperate to sign with someone now.

    I agree. The vikes just got rid of the best WR in football because he was a cancer to the team, I don't seriously think we would bring in an average WR with that attitude.

    I don't think TO and burress would mesh very well.

    Fat Len says Vikes and Burress are talking about a 6-year deal...and it could be done by the end of the weekend.

    Yeah, that kind of sucks. I think burress will get 1000 yards in our offense, but I can't believe we would bring in another WR with an attitude. I think it might be like the TO/mcnabb situation last year. They were good friends and that helps. Daunte and burress are close and I think daunte has been pushing and pushing on the coaches to sign burress. If we do give him a 6 year deal, it will have a ton of incentives.
