Burress: 'Eli One Win Away from Hall'

Win and he's in. That is Plaxico Burress' take on New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

 

"He's one win away, I think, from being a Hall of Famer. I really believe that," Burress said Friday on "The Scott Van Pelt Show" on ESPN Radio.

 

 

 

Burress caught the winning touchdown pass from Manning in Super Bowl XLII. Manning will play for his second ring on Sunday in Super Bowl XLVI.

"If he goes out and wins this game," Buress said of his former teammate, "I really believe he's gonna be a Hall of Famer."

The Giants' current five-game winning streak started with a victory over Burress' Jets on Christmas Eve.

"He's just been lights out for the last month and a half," Burress said of Manning. "His play has really just elevated to a level to where he's throwing the ball with tremendous confidence, putting it in tight places and the guys are out there making plays for him.

"He commands the offense, puts them in great position to get up and down the football field. He goes out and wins this game (Sunday), he's going to silence a lot of people."

Burress made his Super Bowl allegiance clear.

"I think the Giants win," he said. "I'm not going for the Patriots, that's for sure. The Patriots broke my heart too many times when I was in Pittsburgh, all of those AFC championships. Me and Tom Brady have been going at it ever since the Michigan-Michigan State days, so he's been a thorn in my side for the last 12 to 13 years.

"As far as from the Giants standpoint, I've built some great relationships over there and I'm still great friends with some of these guys outside of football. We hang out, even during the season when I was playing for the Jets. I'm running with Big Blue."

Burress' Giants career ended in 2008, when he accidentally shot himself in the leg at a Manhattan nightclub. The incident violated New York's gun laws and led to a prison sentence for Burress.

 

 

Just interesting is all, sounds a lot like he would have liked coming back.

If I had Sanchez throwing to me, I would want to be somewhere else as well.

 

That being said I was one of the few guys who wanted Plax back on the Giants, however with Plax on the team maybe Cruz doesnt get the attention from Eli and Cruz ends up getting released and having the type of success that he is having with some other team.

 

So maybe in the end it's great that Plax didnt resign with the Giants but still I would of liked to seen it.

I don't see Plax pushing Cruz or limiting his play... Plax can not be a starter imo... or if anythign he pushes Manningham. I'm indifferent as to whether he gets signed or not...

The Giants started the season with Cruz behind Nicks, Manningham and Hixon throw Plax into the mix at the start of the season and Cruz would of been behind four WRs with very limited play.

 

Like I said it's all moot at this point but if we did sign Plax at the beginning of this season who knows if Cruz would of seen the type of season he did.
