Plax is so much taller than DBs that even Eli can get him the ball.  Plax still drops too many passes and gets a lot of blocking penalties.  We do need a big WR, but I'm glad we didn't resign Plax and his attitude.

It's funny, just about everytime Plax makes a catch some numpty giant fan comes swanning by, saying "Thank you for Plax" like we just dealt them Randy Moss for a fourth rounder or something.

We usually just laugh at him.

We should never have drafted Plax.  We shoulda taken Chad Pennington.

How often does a franchise QB come along, anyway?!?

The better question is who did we resign instead of Plex, and are we better off having kept those other players instead of Plax.  Moreover, given the continuing cap influence of Plex over the years, would resigning Plex have cost other players (Troy or whomever) that we much would have rather kept.  

The list of players signed or resigned includes Ike, Troy, Aaron Smith, Kiesel, Mahan, Simmons, and Hampton (I think).  Is Plex worth a Kiesel and a Smith combined?

Nah.

But that didn't keep me from drafting him for my FF team.  I mean, who else do they have?  Somebody has to catch the ball.

Plax is a killer. Definitely better than Chad Johnson, man.

Well, you guys can have Sleepy.  I'll take CJ or Wayne over him.  I think I'd like to add Add Javon Walker to my list too.  Maybe I'm blinded by my dislike for him, but he's just not the kind of player I'd want on my team.

FWIW, comparative stats since '05 (Plax' first year with Gints):

REC  YDS  YPC  TDS

Burress
76   1214  16.0    7
63    988  15.7   10
30    507  16.9    8

CJ
97   1432  14.8    9
87   1369  15.7    7
36    578  16.1    3

Wayne
83   1055  12.7    5
86   1310  15.2    9
28    369  13.2    4

I'll be interested to see what kind of numbers Burress finishes with this year.  Even if he has a so-so second half, he should be tops in most categories.  That is, if he doesn't pass out somewhere along the way.

We suck because our drafts have been THE SUCK.
