In an article in the October issue of the Men’s Journal that’ll be coming out next week, Plaxico Burress continues to whine about Tom Coughlin, Eli Manning, and fans who bashed him when he went to prison.
Burress complains that Coughlin didn’t show concern for him after he shot himself in the leg and it’s clear that he’s still very bitter about it. The New York Jets wideout even felt the need to attack Coughlin as a coach, saying things like, “he’s not a real positive coach,” and that Coughlin doesn’t comfort his players.
Burress also holds a grudge against Eli Manning, who didn’t come visit him in prison or write him a comforting ‘How you doing?’ letter that would’ve made him feel better. And don’t forget the fans who were happy to see Burress serve time: “What are you doing now? You still mad at your job? You still angry about your life? ‘Cause I’m back living my life and enjoying my family while you’re still doing the same thing.” That’s how you win back football fans!
Burress needs to shut up. He needs to move on. He’s out of prison and the Giants are his past. Fans who grinned when he was locked up could care less about him now. Even if Burress is right about much of what he says, which he probably is, it’s time to take the high road. He should talk about how being in prison has made him a better man (even if it’s a lie), or just not talk about it at all.
Instead of saying everything right upon his release, like Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick, Burress continues to give all the wrong answers. If he plays well on the Jets, Jets fans won’t care. But, if he doesn’t, this time next year, Burress will find himself playing elsewhere complaining about the Jets.
