Plaxico Burress

Dear Mr. Burress,

         I am pittsports85 and have always been a fan of yours.  You are a very talented receiver, and have the potential to be top 5 in the league.  I am here today to ask you a few question.

      My first is what the hell are you doing?  The Giants just gave you a very generous contract of 5 years, 35 million dollars, and this is how you repay them?  

     First you skip a Monday team practice in October and the team cannot reach you for 2 days.  What were you doing?  The team has a right to know what you are doing when they are paying you $7 million a year.  If you had a family emergency, why didn't you contact the team and let them know?

Then you go on and miss a therapy treatment to help rehab your injury?  Why would you do that?  You are always injured and even if you were feeling better, you still should have went.  I hope you were in the other kind of therapy when you skipped this one, because you need it.

Then just last night you were at a night club with a loaded gun?  You have got to be kidding me.  Have you learned nothing from the Adam pacman Jones saga?  You are a celebrity, yes, but you are letting that go to your head.  You should not be carrying a gun around.  It is as simple as that.  And if it was a bad area, you shouldn't be there. 

I hope you can get your head straight, stop getting injured, and be the player we all know you can be.  Just please keep the gun at home, go to practice, and keep conditioned better because you are on a great team, and if you do this it will really help you into getting another super bowl ring.
