Papa on Burress

Incredible. That noise you just heard is the sound of my jaw hitting the floor.

If Bob Papa is correct, then Burress is truly his own worst nightmare. For him to pass up a deal with 3 months jail time and only 2 months served was another sign that this man is an ignoramus. This was precisely the deal he NEEDED to get back on the playing field in 2009. The expert criminologists concluded he was not being offered anything like this. For him to pass that up was mind-boggling. He could have still been a Giant if he took the deal, and get this… he would practically be out of jail by the time you are done reading this post!

The Giants have gotten back to business without this sideshow. This revelation is yet more evidence that the Giants made the correct move in cutting ties. You can bring a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. How do you deal with a person professionally when they behave irrationally ..all too frequently?! At a certain point you give up and move on. NEXT.

The best line from Papa: “He does not understand that he is not in any kind of position of leverage.”

And there you have it, in a nutshell, why Burress is his own worst enemy. We said that he continually shows poor judgment. He never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

    Andy…I know we have beat this subject to death here, but there is obviously only one reason this still goes on & on & on…

    Plaxico lives on the "Planet Plaxico"

    I know there was no mention of this on the blog, but a couple of days ago Fran Tarkenton made some comments about Brett Favre. Although he was correct in my opinion of what he said…he also had some "digs" at our QB. Here is the quote….

    “I think he has been a great flamboyant quarterback, but he has made more stupid plays than any great quarterback that I’ve ever seen. Look at his final game in a Packers uniform. He blew that game against the Giants. He’s playing against Eli Manning(notes), I love Eli Manning, but he’s still not a great quarterback. He’s not Peyton yet, or Tom Brady(notes). He’s just a guy. And they’re (Packers) are playing at home, and they’re in a tight situation, they went to overtime and he (Favre) throws the interception that allows them (the Giants) to come back and win the game. He has done that and driven his coaches crazy all of his career.”

    Now, I love "Fran the Scram" he was the shining light for the Giants back in the day BUT…as the saying goes…"People in glass houses"…..

    Eli has his faults…Yes he does…but I don't ever remember Fran winning any Super Bowls with us…let alone the Minnesota Vikings ( 4 times a loser)

    I've said this a thousand times Eli Manning will frustrate me at times….but all I have to do is remember SB 42 and my wide grin returns.

    Eli delivered and that can never be taken away….NEVER!

    I’d rather get back to Planet Plaxico, as we’ll leave the two #10’s for another day.

    This guy Plaxico really is in his own world. I am not surprised, yet there it is.

    Plax lives on his own planet. I wonder if his wife, the lawyer, ever visits.

    Oxbay brings up a great point…

    Plax's wife is an attorney. You would think she would be able to reason with him to do his 2 months & community service that the DA is offering…the whole thing is bizarre.

    It's one thing to be stupid, it's another thing to pay very smart lawyers and then when they give you advice, you ignore it. That's being twice as stupid.
