Ok, I'm old and naive. Did you mean mayo? What is yayo?

Burress isn't a bust. He was productive while he was here, he is productive in NY. The only reason Pitt let him go is because they couldn't afford both him and Ward and they chose their more steady WR instead of the big play receiver.

Holmes might be acting like an idiot (keeping in mind all these charges have not been proven...Innocent until proven guilty), but to call him a bust before he even gets on the field is ignorant.

IF he is found guilty on both charges, they're minor and he'll get little more than a slap on the wrist and will be on the field come Sept.

The Steelers are not known for players with "character issues." They have learned that such players have not been productive in the past. There's a reason they didn't draft Lendale White - for the same reasons: questions about his character and maturity.

Cowher won't hesitate to keep a player out for such reasons. Trading up and spending a high draft pick on a player that doesn't see the field because of these character issues can only be described as a bust pick. Ignorance is defined as "lack of knowledge" and I resent that implication that I have displayed such. :-t

Yeah I know the meaning of the word which why I used it. Nothing personal, I just think it's waaaay to early to be calling him a bust. Plus, as others have agreed with me, Burrus wasn't a bust.

He figured if he put his girlfriend in the hospital he would have a chance to visit his QB at the same time.
