This is probably the most debatable, heated, arguable statement I am making out of all. But I think it needs to be done.
However, it needs to be done AFTER Bradshaw, Boss and Steve Smith are accounted for.
Burress is that X-factor the Giants have been missing. Look at the Giants ever since Burress left. They have not been the same team. Why? Because Burress is that go-to guy.
It doesn't matter what down, how many yards or how much time is on the clock.
Remember all of those passes Eli overthrew last year that turned into picks? Don't count on him doing that to Burress.
Plax is 6'5". Those are right in his bread basket. Compare that 6'5" to the heights of Steve Smith (5'11"), Hakeem Nicks (6'0"), Mario Manningham (5'11").
Now, I know height isn't everything, and Nicks still put up stellar numbers, but it surely helps. It's a lot easier to run that fade route to the corner of the end zone and place that ball over the receivers shoulder when he is 6'5".
Just saying, bring him back. He has already stated that he is open to coming back. Tom Coughlin and Plax are meeting Friday to iron out their differences, and it seems like they may bring him back.
