    It didn't take long for a few folks in New York to connect the dots and ask the question. Could Hakeem Nicks' foot injury possibly open the door for Plaxico Burress to return to the team.

    Tom Coughlin's response was to shake his head and mouth the word "no."


    Burress may wind up getting a job, but it won't be with the New York Giants. Tom Coughlin has another idea for how to fill in for Nicks while he recovers.

    "We're looking for the next Victor Cruz," Coughlin said.

    Some candidates on the roster: Second round pick Reuben Randle, Ramses Barden, and Jernal Jernigan. Brandon Collins, Dan DePalma, and Julian Talley are some of the long shots on the Giants roster. Coughlin also knows that Nicks may not miss any regular season time anyhow.

    Nicks' recovery is expected to take anywhere from 6-12 weeks, which could have him ready just before Week 1. Nicks is already speaking optimistically, telling Coughlin he'll do everything possible to be back for the start of training camp.

    way to go TC ... yeah we don't need a guy on the back end of his career, who doesn't play every play and who shows up late and sleeps thru meetings




    but Plax will always have a special place with me,as he was a true Giants hero, but true Giants hero does not mean we ignore the flaws in making or not making a roster decision for 2012/13




    afterall,we had to cut David Tyree ... a great guy, a local guy and another Giants hero

    Not surprising at all.

    I can still see Plaxico coming off the field after getting flagged for 15, and Tom says to him "what the **** are you doing"? And Plax replies, "anything the **** I want".

    Well, not as a Giant Plaxico, not as a Giant.

    I'll take Steve Smith before I ever consider taking Plaxico again.

    One of the nicest things about last year is it put the "Elican't win without Plaxico" BS to rest.
