Plaxico Burress' Toxicity
New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress' remarkable skills as a player between the white lines is only exceeded by his toxic combination of arrogance and stupidity, which unfortunately isn't limited to him (witness the asininity of fellow diva wide receivers Chad Johnson and Terrell Owens). As is well-documented at this point, Mr. Burress managed to shoot himself in the leg in a swank New York City nightclub while being declared inactive to play against the Washington Redskins because of a hamstring injury. His actions left the New York Giants organization with few viable options other than to suspend him for the remainder of the 2008 season.
