Hasselbeck tells it like it is on Plax

ESPN NFL analyst Tim Hasselbeck, who played with wide receiver Plaxico Burress with the Giants, offers some scathing insight into the wideout.

"When you're looking at Plaxico Burress, there's no doubt that he can be a dominant receiver at times on Sundays," said Hasselbeck. "We've seen it. But with that being said, I played with the guy. I was in the locker room with him for two years. He's a disaster as a teammate. He's a disaster as a guy that you have to coach.

"And what do I mean by that? If you want to wait for a guy to show up to meetings, if you want to have to beg a guy to run full-speed in practice, if you want a guy that would disappear in games because he doesn't get the ball early - then look, Plaxico Burress is your guy.

"But if you don't want those distractions, and you don't want to deal with the other headaches that come along with Plaxico Burress, then you better stay away from him."
