Plaxico Fantastico : No Strahan, No Toomer, No Problem

Posted in Gridiron at 5:15 pm by

The Newark Star-Ledger’s Mike Garafalo may not be as well known as his sister Jeannine, but when was the last time Plaxico Burress opened up to her?


In what is becoming an entertaining recurrence, Plaxico Burress took shots at a few more opponents. A few weeks after calling Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens a “coward,” Burress said Bears cornerbacks Nathan Vasher, Charles Tillman and Ricky Manning Jr., whom the Giants face on Sunday, aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

“I don’t think they’re the best corners I’ve played against or we’ve played against this year. By far, no,” Burress said. “Those guys make plays (on) the balls that are thrown straight to them, but they’re not just covering guys straight up and just shutting them down. I haven’t seen any of that.

“They’re very beatable.”

When pressed on which group of defensive backs ranks as the toughest to play against, all Burress said was, “Definitely not them. If they want to come out there and play cover-1, bump-and-run, be (my) guest. I, for one, love it.

“They want to come out there, bump and play press one-on-one? Let’s get go out there and have fun. Let’s get it.”

    Pretty bold for a guy who completely disappears every other game or so.
