F plaxico.. here's what he said back in June when he still thought teams would come running to sign him
The guy was a cancer in the locker room last year... I'll take the WRs we have now over him any day.Plaxico Burress delivered a few more parting shots to the Jets yesterday as he continues his media tour while he looks for a job.
Burress appeared on ESPN’s “First Take” and was asked if he believes Sanchez is the quarterback to lead the Jets to a Super Bowl.
They just paid him, so I think they believe he is,” Burress said, referring to Sanchez’s contract extension in March.
Burress was then pressed whether he believes Sanchez is good enough to get the Jets to the Super Bowl.
“I think the defense will,” he said, taking a shot at Sanchez in the process. “I think they definitely have a Super Bowl defense.”
We don't need him. There is a guy out there who scored 4, oh yeah, you heard it 4 touchdowns in only 15 games. He is available at vet minimum too. His name? Plaxico Burress. Awww yeah. Talk about production. Sign this beat.
no chance the Jets sign him after he turned down the opportunity to offer verbal support to Sanchez in the offseason
However Plax is still a valuable red zone WR. The problem is, can any team use a roster spot for a WR who can only play in the red zone and can't play special teams?
I can't believe we're not going to take a stab at another tall Wideout. D. Alexander would make sense. Hell, even a scarecrow would be an improvement.
Tebow sucks in the red zone. No, seriously...he does. I wish I had the notebook I write all of this down in.
The Broncos were 27th or 28th in red zone offense with Tebow as the starting QB.
Tebow is UNSTOPPABLE inside the 5 yard line.
There's a big difference between being on the 20 and being on the 5.
I believe his agent was behind the anonymous quotes at the conclusion of last season season critical of Sanchez and the way the Jets coddled him. I addition I also believe that he and Santonio combined for a toxic attitude at the WR position that worked to the detriment of Sanchez.
These are the reasons I believe that Jets are so adamant as to why they do no want him part of the team this season.
Anybody hear what went on behind his statement that he would (or wanted to) play in Philly and why they passed? Was it just his arrogance thinking that Vick would lobby for another jail rat or did he have a connection there that got over-ridden?
