Maybe he should get a little jail time. Carrying a loaded weapon is a felony with a mandatory term.

I am hearing all of the right things from the team. Hopefully they will stay focused and keep the pressure on.

I agree that he is not as a bad as Vick. He does have a bad "me first" attitude. And it cost him $27 million

Its a hard lesson for him to learn, and you are right about not lumping him in with Vick. Last night i was listening to sound bites from the players and everyone still seemed really focused, which was cool.

Hard lesson - - Big dummy sums him up right now - could not have said it better myself - God given talent and luck - - He is his own worse enemy - I do not see him as a nogoodnick like Mike Vick-- Burress just needs to gorw up and learn to obey the law and respect authority - for his sake as well as the NY Giants - The Giants are a world class team and do not need bad press - emoticon emoticon

So I guess that he is out for the rest of the season, including the playoffs.

They act the way they do becasue we have taught them from high school. They were the start in HS and every one treated them different and said they were great. In college, it was the same. All the breaks, all the recognition, etc. If the coach wanted to win (and keep his million dollar job) he had to keep his talent happy and feeling strong. No punishment, suspensions or hold outs when the player behaved badly or they would go to a differnet school. So they get to the NFL and expect everything to be the same. We've conditioned and trained them well.

I agree - he absolutely does have talent. I don't understand these athletes. Why do they do such STUPID things when they have so much going for them? Oh, and I really liked the idea of trading him to Dallas. He would fit right in.

What we do CAN make a difference. Regardless of the obstacles, create your OWN destiny and make a mark others will admire.

For the Heart, you are 100% right about the Moss/T.O. disease -- he thought he was untouchable! i hope this doesn't taint our season or last year's Super Bowl. Right now unless a plea deal is made i don't know how he can avoid jail time (especially with all the press, Bloomberg coming down on it and his STRONG anti gun law)... i just wish i knew the whys behind the situation. Hope he doesn't take down Pierce.

I do hope he doesn't have to go to jail IF he actually learned from this. I also hope his suspension is without pay. He doesn't deserve to keep collecting that huge paycheck right now either.

The penalty for the weapins charge is 3 1/2 years minimum to 15 years max. He could serve some serious jail time except he's got that lawyer that gets all the big stars off when they mess up.

I at least glad that he got suspended and is now an inactive member of the team. He draws too much attention to himself instead of every other player on the team. Hopefully the team can focus on the upcoming game with the Eagles, and put this distraction behind them.

I am so impressed they didn't skip a beat and rolled over the Redskins without a hitch. What is wrong with Plaxico? He got the contract he wanted and now he's gone crazy. He could get some serious jail time for this, never mind what the league might do..

And the latest word I hear is that he tried to use Pierce to cover for him and maybe get rid of the gun?

I also think that it is time for him to go. Too much of a distraction. He's got the Randy Moss/TO disease: "its all about me/I'll work when I want to"

Can we trade him even if we just signed a contract with him? i really hope we can... he seems like a perfect fit for Dallas, they seem to like egos.

You know....Burress is a very talented player. The boy is good. But now he's acting stupid... not thinking. Time to bring him down a couple notches. Time for reality to sink in, Plaxico. The Giants know how to re-adjust quickly and flawlessly. Love them Giants!!!

He is kinda how Shockey was - a big distraction and as stated, not worth it.

He's such an enormous talent, but definitely a disruption and probably not worth it. The Giants are such a deep team that the loss of any one player doesn't seem to hinder them.

I heard it on the news this evening. Personally, I think it is time for the Giants and Burress to part ways, he has been a distraction for some time and not quite a team player.
