Plaxico Burress Needs To Just Shut Up and Put Up

Tanya MercadoCorrespondent IAugust 6, 2008

The drama that is Plaxico Burress is disgusting and completely unnecessary. He is acting like a child.

In no way do I think he deserves what he is asking for. He signed a contract to which he should be bound to or face a penalty. What gives him the right to just come out and demand more money and a new contract? Burress should just finish his current contract and then talk about a new one.

He has replaced Jeremy Shockey as the girl on the team. The difference between Shockey's antics and what Plaxico is pulling right now is it was always about the team. Nobody can say that about Plax. It does not benefit the team. It only benefits number 17.

The Giants do not need this type of distraction. He needs to shut up, show up to camp, and train. Honor the contract. Continue to put up numbers like you did last season and when your contract is up, then you talk about a new one and more money. In that way, and only in that way, will I say you deserve it.

I'm sorry. I was not aware one great season warrants you to be paid more money. My friend, you are not "the man." You are merely a child in a man's suit throwing a tantrum.

Where can I comment?
