08:55 AM ET 03.07 | Who says one can't go home again? Plaxico Burress may have his sights set on playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, but he won't rule out a reunion with the Giants. In fact, he called it a "great possibility" that he would return to play for Tom Coughlin, whom he called "a great coach." The free agent listed the Giants among four teams he's considering in an interview Tuesday on The Sirius Blitz on SiriusXM NFL Radio. He spoke about playing for the Giants, Jets, Steelers and Eagles, the team that's been clearly at the top of his list the last week as he makes his media rounds. That he would throw the Giants into the mix is hardly surprising, even if it seems like an extreme longshot.

Somehow I don't expect the Giants to reciprocate a love-fest.

Since he's already played for three of those teams, you can scratch them off the list. (He may vary well be intererested in them, but not so much the other way around) That leaves the Eagles.....they like rehab projects and divas. Didn't take them very far last year but who knows....

Remember this one? Took me a while to find it....


OK, turn on the disco ball, turn down the lights and put on your ABBA outfits:

You are the dancing queen, acting mean, Number Seventeen
Dancing queen, see yourself on the Jumbo Screen
You can dance, you can jive, doing the crime of your life
Make the scene, with a round in the magazine.

Dancing queen, wonderin' who your wife's been seein',
A cell serene, you can play for the Mean Machine.
You can lie, you can plead, serving the time of your life
Shower steam, hear him screaming for Vaseline.

Who knows? With the impending loss of Manningham it might make sense. This way you can keep Cruz in the slot...crazier things have happened

Plax should go back to college where he can work out of the pistol formation.

Are we sure this thread is from this year and not last year???

March 7, 2012  12:06 PM ET

Plax, we (the Steelers) didnt want you last time you were a FA.... and we dont want you now.

It's more like a 'great implausibility' that he returns to play for Tom Coughlin.
