THE QUESTION

Is Plax Done?

Indicted Monday, and facing three plus years for shooting himself in the leg, will former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress ever play in the NFL again?

FROM THE PANEL

Get a Clue, Plax

But the greatest obstacle to Burress' return is not Morgenthau or Commissioner Roger Goodell, but Burress himself.

His Age May Cost Him More Than His Stupidity

An aging receiver with years away from the field, emotional issues and an attitude problem is not an easy sell.

Punish Stupidity

Plax let his gun license lapse along with his judgment that night.

Party Over for Plax

Burress's judicial Hail Mary not only failed, but likely sealed his fate for more prison time.

Guilty of Stupidity?

Should he play in the NFL again? Who knows? Right now, Burress must use every bit of his famed escapability to try and squirm out of a defensive formation he's never seen before.

Truth Should've Set Plax Free

Compared to Donte Stallworth who killed a man, how long can you keep Plax out?

Stupidity's Not Criminal

Burress is being punished by our backward legal system for being stupid, arrogant and naïve; not for being a criminal.

Talent Always Gets Another Chance

Even if he does play again, it will never be the same for Plax.

No Fair League?

Burress will be "entitled" to an opportunity for employment, but not necessarily in the NFL.

Let Him Play, But...

Send Burress to talk to someone like George Taliaferro.
