07:03 AM ET 06.10 | "My job is to just go out and catch the football," Plaxico Burress said recently, offering up the obvious job description. Really, what else would you want the 6-foot-5 receiver to do? Block? It's all Ben Roethlisberger wanted since Burress left the Steelers the first time after the quarterback's rookie season in 2004, a tall receiver. ... [Burress] went from Super Bowl hero to nearly two years in jail to being unwanted by all 32 NFL teams for most of the 2012 season, after a decent comeback year with the New York Jets in 2011. "I know I can still play, I know I can dominate in the red zone," Burress said, and explained how he must go about doing that. "Just go out and play at a high percentage. In those one-on-one opportunities, just succeed at a high rate."

He can still dominate at the gun range.

At 6ft, 5 inches he should still dominate in the red zone, otherwise what good is he to the Steelers???

At 6ft, 5 inches he better dominate in the red zone, otherwise he's of little use to the Steelers!

Opps, sorry about the double post!

And as a third down possession receiver. He is still fast enough to get away from linebackers in coverage and a big enough target in traffic over the middle. If he can adapt to a new role he could still be productive, especially with BR's ability to extend plays.

Looks just like Tracy McGrady.

Is he like still in football? Hey Plax, you were never hall of fame material ever so stop talking dominate when you were just good at times. Not all times.

Maybe Mike Adams should hire PLex as his new body guard.....wait, that would it well would it!!!

For those on the West Coast who have just joined us, they had a picture of a pig over there to the right. A real pig, the kind that has a curly tail and goes "oink."

Short memories abound. He wasn't Calvin Johnson, but he was nearly uncoverable in the end zone for Eli. I had him on my fantasy team the year they won the SB. He was money in the bank.

It was over there all weekend.

I'd like to express my appreciation to the webmaster for resolving this issue and providing a much better piece of ham.

I'm thinking that if he'd actually pulled the gun out, instead of pocket-dialing with it, he would have discovered he was not the only one in that bar with a gun.

And he most probably wasn't.

Sooo, why go too any place.[other than a target range.] or Permit ,too be totting one?

Just stay out of the bars you figure you need a weapon for,in the 1st place, and then? the dumbmkr shoot's himself? priceless.
