Sunday is still 4 days away so there is still time for Brandon Jacobs to do something stupid as well. Unlikely the Eagles good fortune will continue, but at least we can rejoice that Eagles' Killer Plaxico Burress is done for the season.
In his 3 years with the Giants Burress has absolutely dominated the Eagles and their secondary. In 8 games, Burress has posted 37 receptions, 650 yards, and 7 TDs. We won't miss you at all Plaxico.
Domenik Hixon may be good, may be a great route runner, but he lacks the big play potential of Plaxico. With the absence of Plaxico, Jim Johnson can now deploy more 1-on-1 coverage, not worry about having a safety over the top to control Plaxico, and instead bring the safeties into the box to focus on stopping the run.
The stupidity of Burress has made the Eagles task a bit easier and a win more possible this Sunday.
