Giants WR Burress Shoots Himself in the Leg
— Dave in Texas

That will certainly take your mind off a pulled hamstring.

Seems to be a lot of this going around. Ohio Police Chief shoots himself in the leg after giving his daughter a firearms safety lesson.

Unorthodox perhaps, but very effective.

1 Do the Giants have Excess & Surplus Moron Coverage for this?

2 The foot hurts worse.  Trust me.

3 Big blue wrecking crew. I think you're doing it wrong.

4 Burress was just jealous that Donovan McNabb was getting massive media coverage, despite sucking on the field, by acting like a jackass off the field.  So I'm guessing Plax thought I can either work my ass off rehabbing my hamstring, get back on the field and perform well or I can just one-up McNabb's stupidity by shooting myself in the leg in a nightclub.  This may well be the most misguided cry for attention since Michael Vick started a dogfighting ring.

You never hear about rednecks shooting themselves at nightclubs.  Is that 'cuz we know how to handle our weapons or because we don't go clubbin'?

7 Morons and firearms are a really toxic combination.  The Giants superbowl run is likely over.  they are still a formidable team, but not a great team.

8 How can you be a great team when your player(s) are shooting themselves? LOL

Both Bubba.

10 Maybe they took firearms safety lessons from that DEA agent, you know, the one who was "the only person in this room qualified to handle this weapon".

Could it be that alcohol was involved? Just a guess ...

When your first name is Plaxico you'd better expect to get shot sooner or later.  Might as well get it over with sooner...

Not as likely to be fatal either.

13 Hmmmmm.

"You never hear about rednecks shooting themselves at nightclubs.  Is that 'cuz we know how to handle our weapons or because we don't go clubbin'?"

Well "clubbin" for a redneck usually involves a good piece of hard <b>wood</b> and a defenseless cute <b>furry</b> animal ...

...

Ok I see the correlation there.

Quickdraw Plaxico was simply practicing his holster moves.  All hat and no cattle for this boy.

16 As a Giants fan as I see this as a blessing in disguise. One, the guy was a distraction and wasn't doing anything anyways. And two, the team can focus on guys who will play and play their hardest. Get some new blood out there starting in his place. Domenik Hixon, Steve Smith, etc...

18 As a Giants fan, I've had enough of this tired act. He's got to go. Perhaps a criminal prosecution and Roger Goodell can occupy him while the team is busy steamrolling to another title.

Send his sorry ass to Detroit.

19 "You know who this helps...."

Domenik Hixon.

Many of us fans have been calling for him to start anyway.

In all honesty, I'm not surprised by "NFL Star Accidentally Shoot Self" as a headline.

I am surprised that it happened before we got an "NBA Star Shoots Teammate"  headline, though.

"You know who this helps..."

Yeah, the 'Skins secondary on Sunday.

Posted by: SuperCool at November 29, 2008 10:58 AM (a80B1)

22 More Domenik Hixon. Sure. And more Steve Smith, Amani Toomer, Sinorice Moss, Boss, Jacobs, Ward, Bradshaw. Shit, give Mario Manningham a jersey and see what he can do. They can more than make up for him.

They're the top scoring team already with his meager contributions. He won't be missed.

Fuck him. He's the lone remaining cancer on this team. He's got to go.

Hmmmm, Plaxico "beats his bitches" Burress ends up with lead poisoning?

Not exactly shocking.

I am sorta shocked that Pacman wasn't involved, however.

26 So in New York its legal to carry a firearm into a night club? 

And I thought Texas had loose gun laws.

Posted by: klrtz1 at November 29, 2008 11:26 AM (U+UDP)

27 @21 - He was already scratched for that game, so it didn't make a difference. But as I have said, and several others, the Giants can easily find someone to replace him. Hixon, Moss, Toomer, Smith, etc...

"7 Morons and firearms are a really toxic combination.  The Giants superbowl run is likely over.  they are still a formidable team, but not a great team"

 

you forgot about the alcohol

morons,firearms,and alcohol, a sure way to make sure Darwin was right

29 Burress has always been a bad guy.  He's the poster child for the selfish, narcissistic professional athlete.   Why is it that most of those guys are receivers or D-backs?

Lesseeeee........

Tank Johnson - check

Pacman Jones - check

Terrell "ME ME ME ME ME" Owens - check

Roy Williams - yeah, that Roy Williams, the Detroit disposal Roy Williams -  check

There's probably a couple of other problem children I'm forgetting.

What's the over/under on when Jerry Jones will be on the phone to Plaxico's agent? You can't have enough fucking turds on one team if that team is the Cowboys.

33 That shit is going to leave a mark. How do you get blood off of mother of pearl?
