A few other Giants are hurting, too, but hopefully we can go to Washington and escape w/ a win w/o anymore injuries.
Another black mark for Hampton Roads NFL stars. Remember we also raised Mike Vick.

Can't anyone who makes it big in NFL from Hampton Roads behave?!

Don't worry...there's always a place for criminals on the Dallas Cowboys. Before you know it, Vick will be throwing passes to Burress in Dallas.

The Giants suspended Burress for 4 games. No surprise there, but his absence will be felt.

I was wondering if Burress would share a cell w/ Vick. Where is Hampton Roads?

Oh, that part. It doesn't surprise me, I guess. But it's still upsetting.

I hope Plaxico Burress doesn't wind up taking down Antonio Pierce as well.

Edit: I'm just now reading about an update to this drama.

Yeah right. I heard that Plax was asked to unload the weapon upon entering the club. If he entered w/Pierce, how did Pierce not know. What a joke. There is way more to this story. The truth will eventually come out.

From what I read and heard on ESPN, even though we don't know the details, b/c Pierce voluntarily met w/ the NYC cops, his lawyer probably conditionally let him do so if Pierce would be granted immunity if he spoke about the Burress incident. So I don't think Pierce will go down w/ Burress. But Burress will definitely get screwed. Law officials will want to make an example out of him, like they did of Vick.

I know, I was also pissed! I was recalling that Cleveland game from Oct. Maybe it was the Burress distraction or just one of those games. Luckily, the Cowboys choked in the 4th Q, which made the Giants winners of the NFC East, but they sure didn't look like winners today. They better get their act together and embarrass the the Cowboys in Irving next Sun.
