Here in Dallas we've had our fair share of run in's with the law, and we've had our fair share of "characters" who the Press loves to hate, but there's very few time we ever get a character that the Press doesn't go off on.....so my question is
Why does Plaxico Burress get off the hook???
Two Police recorded activities at his home for violence oriented behavior, his own club has suspended him Twice, and the Steelers let him leave in free agency because they saw his as trouble. So tell me why Kevin Winslow is getting brow beat by the press and Plax is able to ride the waves above it? At what point can we begin to count on these guys to do their job and go jump in his face and ride his case like they have Randy Moss, TO and Steve Smith (opps, he has had several altercations too and the press still lines his bed with feathers)???
Why wont the Press, the Reporters jump on the Giants like they do so many others? I mean everybody know Branden Jacobs starts stuff EVERY WEEK and yet no one rides his as a dirty player. It is the grace period from last year that Plax was so injured and still played each week that has kept him above reproach? Or was he just lazy and not wanting to practice (cause he looked darn good in all those games, not a limp, not a loss of stride or step!) and everyone over looked it cause Jeremy Shocky was the dumping boy?
What do you think? Are the G-men getting a pass on being pulled apart for every little thing (like we are) or am I missing something? (Seems since they are from NY with all that Press around that they would be the center of scrutiny)
