10:03 AM ET 11.25 | It hasn't taken long for Plaxico Burress to settle back in with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Quarterback Charlie Batch told NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala that Burress has looked sharp in practice since signing with the team Tuesday. The 35-year-old pass-catcher was described by teammates as rust-free and ready to play. Plaxico has also taken on a leadership role. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said Burress was vocal during film study, pointing out weaknesses in the secondary of the Cleveland Browns, who the Steelers face Sunday.

How hard can it be to "point out weaknesses in the Browns' secondary?"

I wonder how that conversation went. . .

Plaxico: "Hey, guys, you see those players wearing orange helmets lined up at corner and safety? Well, they suck."

My concern for the Steelers receivers is that they needed those weaknesses to be pointed out. Really? This might explain a lot.

Ever see that youtube video of the former DEA agent showing off guns to elementary school kids? He ends up blasting himself in the foot. Funny stuff for sure!

The Browns secondary today will make you Batch look like you belong in the Hall Of Fame.

Plaxico Burress & "leadership role." An oxymoron or great proportions.

Haden's back so I highly doubt they will play as bad this week. I believe this game will come down to the Browns offense ability to adapt. If they can score 24 or more they win this game, if not well, it's 2-9!
