Joey Porter's Pit Bulls like Plex and all, but when he was with the Steelers, he had a maddening tendency to ... well, let's just say, he'd get lackadaisical at the oddest moments.
Here's what Michael Strahan had to say about Plex Burress quitting on a crucial play in last Sunday's devastating loss to the Tenn Titans:
"It's a shame," Strahan said on the radio Monday. "You can't give up. You can't quit, because you're not quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on us … we work too hard to have that type of stuff happen. I don't quite understand what his lack of motivation is in those types of situations. But I'm going to try to see what it is, and if I can talk to him about it. He's too good for that."
After making those comments during a radio interview on Monday, Strahan pretty much denied the statements and tried to intimidate an ESPN reporter during a press conference later in the week. Flubby at Kissing Suzy Kolber calls out Strahan in an impassioned and, not surprisingly, well-written post.
