(The Plaxico Burress Story.)
The New York Football Giants went 11-1 today in a convincing win against the Washington Redskins. The Giants won the division showdown without star receiver Plaxico Burress as he was home recovering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the thigh.
Burress is no stranger to drama; the tortured receiver has given the World champs more than their share of headaches.
Earlier this season Burress was fined $117,500 for missing a team meeting/practice and not calling out sick. He was also fined $45,000 for a verbal altercation with a referee that involved throwing a ball into the crowd.
Buress who caught the super bowl winning catch was a hold out before mini-camp and blamed it on an ankle injury. He has earned a reputation for being a distraction and having a bad attitude on and off the field.
