Now that Plaxico Burress has had one preseason game under his belt with the Jets – people are waking up to the fact that Burress is indeed a very special WR.
Rex Ryan and March Sanchez can’t say enough good things about Plax after his 3 catches for 66 yards and a TD:
Ryan: “You see we beat Cover-One and we beat Cover-Zero throwing the ball up to him. I don’t care who you are playing corner, you can be Willie Brown or Darrelle Revis out there, that’s going to be tough. We were smiling from ear to ear. That’s why he’s here.”
Sanchez: “I’ve never had a target like him.”
I’m still a little bitter about this because I wanted to see Plax back in Blue, but the Giants made him a ‘responsible offer’ and he went with more guaranteed money. Now, the Jets offense is going to be that much better with Plaxico Burress lining up in the red zone — guaranteed.
