This is truly pathetic .
Giants didn't lose because they didn't have this self centered thug in the game .
JEEEZUS ! get a grip will ya .
You have to admit though, the double coverage he draws opens things up for the other receivers and forces the secondary to play honest. Since his departure, the other guys can't seem to get open consistently. Also, Jacobs would've been even more effective w/o 8-9 guys in the box looking to shut him down.
They need to get a big time receiving threat in the draft or via trade. Re: Plax, he may deserve a 2nd chance, just not here.

Giants miss him, for sure. But the game was winnable if Eli had played anything like the Eli of last year, if The OC had learned anything from the previous loss, if the HC had thrown away his typical NFL head coach's love of field goals, and understood, absent Plax, extra risks for extra rewards were necessary, if the center of the line coulda moved people when it counted, if the kicker hadn't chosen the last two games to finally be human, if Kiwi wasn't miscast as a DE, if number 20 could actually make a play when it is there to make and on and on and on, and if Jerry Reese, so very astute in so many personnel areas, hadn't made the same mistakes about wide-out draftees this org has been making for decades.
Mercy is fine, I almost always opt for it when given a choice.
But there are two issues with Plax: 1) has this latest round of thumbing his nose at everything and everyone associated with the larger society and the consequences that came with it actually taught him anything, and 2) and more practical: can he stay healthy.
Lastly, he coulda seriously injured or killed someone other than himself with his stupidity - so the fact he injured himself was just good fortune - not adult grace.

i gonna want to that Plaxico Buress comes back to my team giants. and then i like to happy and see that he back joining my team help to improve playing football. my team gaints and he are going to successful. that he is a best player.because he is tall and do easy fast catching. he does good speed as running through away. i gonna can believe that he is changing his mind and can tell to what he doesn't want to often trouble anymore. he is trying to stop getting bad as the behavior. he is peace and gonna stop start pressure the control at my heart does really feeling worry about that anyone has happen. he feels make bad behavior and gonna face anyone. he has promised and saying he is carefully myself is still the peace behavior. i gonna hope that he is cooperation his heart is the good behavior to everyone.i gonna hope him!
