I'm begining to wonder if the physical is just attitude or really his hammy? Crazy thing is that when he returned, he looked just fine.

Everybody hates on him because the "hype" doesn't match the production. Mid-rate WR? Head case? I see Plaxico as a guy who is frustrated, much like Corey Dillon, for having sizeable talent and being stuck in a poor situation. Everyone who says that Plaxico is all about himself is right, but that's how a player's attitude should be. He wants to be involved so he can have an impact on his team and become a top-notch WR to help the cause his team.

Ask yourself, when was the last time Pittsburgh actually won a championship? A couple times while Plaxico has been a Steeler, they've advanced in the playoffs, yet they always seem to fall just short. How frustrating would it be to watch as your team struggles in the postseason every other season, while your perhaps "game-changing" talent is being ignored due to game planning?

For a guy that knows in his own mind that he can be a difference maker, whenever the Steeler's do well but not well enough to win it all, it's a slap in the face to Plaxico. How does it feel knowing that he could have been a contributor to make them even better, yet he was ignored in favor of their ball-control, run oriented offense, stuck as the #2 WR whose main purpose is to draw attention from defenders (and not catch the ball).

With the very few chances that Plaxico gets in games, he has no chance to develop a rhythm with his QB (50% of his passes are deep balls). So everyone points out how inconsistent Plaxico can be, adding that much more to the stigma that Plaxico is a hyped up headcase. It's kinda tough to adjust to only 1 pass in every other possession.


Gosh, I'll try to be more sensitive to Plaxico's emotional needs in the future.

BTW, Kensat you are the man. We agree on almost everything.

Burress needs a chances, Alexander is a garbage football player etc.
