THE QUESTION

Was Coughlin Lax on Plax?

If the New York Giants were playing an NFC East rival this week instead of having a bye, would Tom Coughlin have treated Plaxico Burress's alleged insubordination differently?

Empire Wrecker :

Sometimes you got deal with a player no matter talented he be. Plaxico let down his team and himself. The G-Men will miss him against the Seahawks but long term it was the smart move. It says you can't mess with the rules no matter who you are. Burress should keep his mouth shut and not appeal, just shut up and deal.

Chas :

Every employee in any business should be held accountable when they break the rules or fail to perform.  Plax is no different.  Mr. Wang excuses Plax's behavior and criticizes the Giants' punishment because Plax is so good and has sacrificed himself physically for the team.  That is shallow hero-worship.
Mr. Rosenhuas implies that Plax's agent should manage nearly every element of a player's interaction with his employers and colleagues.  Rosenhaus must need a client.  Maybe I should have my lawyer with me all day at work -- I am sure my company would looove that.  Please.  Only Plax can do his job.
When did Dick Vermeil turn in to the mean old man down the block?  Tell him to give me my football back that went in his yard, or we'll soap his windows on cabbage night.
Plax:  Wake up and be a professional.  If you have a real issue -- or just want to bang in once in awhile-- call the boss like the rest of us do.  The Giants need you so don't let the team down.
Giants:  Make the punishment equal the crime.  Take his money, not his game -- as that punishes the team, too.  Too old-Coughlin.  Suspend him for 11 days and don't let him start, but give him snaps against Seattle.       

OZZIE :

Giants should try to trade Plax to the Ravens for Ray Lewis and a 2nd round pick. This way they can draft a WR with that pick and get Ray Lewis pretty much for nothing.

shutup :

instead of suspending to his million dollar mansion, they they should relegate him to punt and kick off returns only or make him the towel boy... And ozzie why do you only talk about trading players?

Hill Wag :

How about Plaxico gets cut and then put in jail for being a wife beater. Tiffany has twice filed for a restraining order. Why aren't we talking about that? Because he's a superstar athlete? Thats complete BS. Coughlin should kick him off the team.

OZZIE :

Hey SHUTUP dont worry about what I talk about on here. Take you down syndrome elsewhere.

2K10 :

my brother has down syndrome and he also serves as towel boy at the local Y. If anything was fair they would make Plax live his life and be made fun of by everyone for two weeks. He would have a lot more dignity. Step up

OTB :

Who would have thunk Plaxico was a wife beater? Oh yeah actually I can see that I thought we were talking about eli who does look like he has the downed syndrome, as in he's one down short of a scrimmage.

Get ready for a Mets collapse in the Meadowlands. How does it feel NYC to have a terrible hockey team, a worse basketball team, no playoff baseball and two billion bucks of wasted pigskin. To quote Nelson, "HA! HA!"

OZZIE :

Hey 2K10 you have down syndrome to so dont talk about my posts. Take your down syndrome elsewhere

CORKY :

Hey it's not nice to make fun of people afflicted with down syndrome. And who are we to judge Plax for his woman troubles? How are we to know what she did to deserve a beating?

OZZIE :

Corky you have down syndrome to, dont tell me whats nice or not you clown.

Plaxico :

Don't suspend me for missing practice, I was busy attending couples therapy and our councilor told me I could have my phone on. Coach doesn't understand. Ozzie you need to settle down or I'll you beat you down like the syndrome. You probably squeal like a batch

BOZO :

Now don't go bringing clowns into this...

Navaclean :

Look when you sign a guy like Plax you know what you get. You don't put a pederast in a kindergarten and then act surprise when the kiddies start crying. It is just like that.
Burress is a money-driven ego-drunk narcissist who has the world at his finger tips. Ten very talented finger tips, that are attached to a lot of baggage. You can't change him, so contain his crazy as much as you can and use his talent to win a super bowl.
