Giant Moves

Posted: July 27, 2011 by Keith Stone in Giants, NFL, PLAXICOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Like every other team, the Giants are frantically trying to make player moves now that the lockout is over. They’re a little over the cap so it’s time to make tough decisions to move into the 2011 season and improve on last year’s 10-6 record. Surprisingly, one of the players they’re looking at is former star Plaxico Burress, which seemed unlikely as recent as last week. I cannot stress how much I think the Giants should make this move. I love Plax. He’s a slutty bartender. The only question is how much he deteriorated physically in prison. If it’s anything like Michael Vick, he’ll be fine. The G-Men have a fine young receiving corps but nobody comes close to Plax. Everyone forgets how great he was in 2007 and 2008. He’s a nice tall target for Eli (who still throws a bit high) and he commands a double team. If he doesn’t get one, he’ll burn you. Anyone remember the 2007 NFC Title Game? If you have a chance to add him to your team, you have to do it. The detractors say he’ll be a distraction and the fan base is torn on Plax, but he didn’t do anything malicious to end up in jail and I think the media focus will still be more on the end of the lockout and the massive amount of player movement. The New York newspapers seem to care more about the Yankees and Jets anyway. I don’t think Plax returning will be that big of a story. If he puts on the blue and makes big plays, everything will be forgiven. The Giants also signed undrafted free agent linebacker and cancer survivor Mark Herzlich. It’s a nice story to give him a chance to play and the Giants linebackers are undermanned. He’s a tough son of a bitch too. If he can beat cancer, the Eagles don’t look so bad in comparison. I co-sign.

On the flip side of things, the Giants will be cutting two offensive line stalwarts, Shaun O’Hara and Rich Seubert, for salary cap relief. These two were a vital cog in the offense and rose from obscurity to help lead the Giants to the Title. Though both had injury problems last year and were getting older, O’Hara was a strong leader and Seubert fought through a horribly broken leg to return to the field and become a versatile player who could shift positions selflessly and skillfully. They will be sorely missed.
