Pitt has NO offense, staley is not a fulltime back, they have no oline, and maddox is injury prone/not that great. All issues outside of Burress's control. Within his control are his bad attitude, bad hands, inability to be the main man like ward, and reluctance to play to his height. I would bet plenty of money Plexico will be similar to last years stats.
I dont agree with one word you said above. Pitt's o-line suffered tremendous injuries last season. They weren't a bad o-line to start with, but this year they have been improved it and they are also healthy. duece staley is a pretty good back with a lot of power who can run between the tackles. this improved o line, coupled with there ability to run the ball should open the passing game for maddox. he has always been most affective with the play-action pass. this year with duece staley and a healthy jerome bettis Pitt will be able to run the ball pretty well. maddox will fall into his own.
you also have to acknowledge all of the intangibles that burress posseses. the guy is a tremendous athlete, he is fast and can run a good route. on top of that, the guy is 6'5''. he is one of the biggest red zone threats in the nfl.
