Re: Plaxico Burress In An Eagles Uniform? It Could Hap
I think the two are very different. In Vick's case, I think he got to thinking that he was untouchable and would get away with whatever he wanted, and became a very arrogant jerk. Like another QB I know. Vick learned that this is simply not the case. He, at least to outsiders, seems to have gotten his act together. Vick never struck me as dumb. Even the criminal acts bear this out. Vick was caught running a lucrative dogfighting enterprise, and for the absolutely horrible, brutal murder of defenseless animals. Such things require some intelligence. In Plax's case, he shot himself in the leg because he was carrying an unlicensed weapon the waistband of his sweatpants at a bar at 3 am. You can't fix stupid. Plax is stupid. Philly would be a bad place for him. A place like Green Bay, where you don't have the nightlife, would be a good fit for him.
We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.
