    I don't think Plaxico Buress has anything to do with why the Giants got beat

    I have heard people say that the Giants got beat because of the whole Plaxico Buress thing. I don't think that has anything to do with it. The Giants just got beat. In the NFL any team can be beat on any given day. Also the Giants played a division rival (The Eagles) on the road. It's hard to win on the road and it's hard to win against division rivals. Even if you have like a 10-2 record and you are playing a division rival that is 2-10 you still might have a hard time winning.

    Next week the Giants face another division rival (The Dallas Cowboys) > I think the Cowboys are going to beat the Giants and it will have nothing to do with the whole Plaxico Buress thing. The Cowboys have the Giants at home and it will be the Cowboys last division rival game in Texas Stadium that is not a playoff game (there is a chance that the Cowboys could play the Redskins or the Eagles in Texas Stadium in the NFC Championship).

    Anyways I just don't understand why people are saying that the whole Plaxico Buress thing is why the Giants got beat. I also could never understand why people said Jessica Simpson was the reason that the Cowboys lost to the Eagles last year. Jessica Simpson had nothing to do with why the Cowboys lost to the Eagles last year and this whole Plaxico Buress thing has nothing to do with why the Eagles beat the Giants this year.

    I don't know. I do think he had something to do with. This incident has put an embarrassing spotlight on the Giants organization. I think they will do much better now that it is being resolved, and he is away from the team.

    Re: I don't think Plaxico Buress has anything to do with why the Giants got beat

    I think that having Plaxico on the field is an advantage for the Giants because he is a pretty good receiver, but he is not the only reason that they lost that game. There were dropped passes, miscues, etc. that caused the loss. In almost any game you can point at almost any player and say "what if he did X, that would have changed the entire game."

    The point is that you win and you lose as a team. Yes, missing one of your better players hurts, but at the same time that is when the "weaker" players are supposed to step it up.
