Postby portisfan24 » Fri Oct 15, 2004 5:25 pm

it seemed that big ben was looking for him last week, while ward got the shaft. does anyone think burress could become roethlisburgers man and post good numbers in the next few weeks?

as a sidenote, what will cowher do when maddox is healthy again?

My own quote...

Most teams this year have been sticking their top cornerbacks on Burress, leaving Ward the room the put up big numbers. Lately, Plax and Big Ben have been devoloping a nice bond. In Week 4 Plax was a couple missed plays away from a 180 yd 2 TD game, and in Week 5 he tore it up for 136 yds and a score. If R Berger and Plax continue this tirade, I question Hines' ability to be a top WR.

I think a lot of the plays to Burress have resulted from Big Ben being able to scramble and to buy time to where Burress can get open. I don't think he starts every play looking for Plaxico. If you're a QB and you see your receiver downfield 30 yards and open, who you gonna throw to?

Unfortunately, I have not been able to see any Steeler games, I would imagine that maybe teams are now focusing on Ward and trying to make Big Ben beat them down the field. So maybe someone who has had the fortunes of watching the mighty Steelers play can enlighten us.

I have high hopes for Burress, if he comes back to Pitt at the end of the season, I think they could be a very good duo for some time to come.

Living in Pittsburgh, I watch all the Steelers games, and i've been notcing that Roethlisberger definitely looks for Burress more than Maddox did. Add that to the fact that he's their X receiver, and I think he's bound to start producing a lot more.

Nice news for a Burress owner. The league I have him on, I've been lucky enough where I have only had to use him during byes. (2 WR, 2 RB, 1 Flex), starting Owens and Wayne. I may have to start him every week because I don't have a solid third back. (Griffin ineffective, Foster hurt and pretty much done for season) Brown and McAllister should get it done.
