Plax talking too much for TC

If Tom Coughlin has not already had some words -- probably choice ones -- with Plaxico Burress I think it's safe to assume Burress will hear from the coach soon.

Coughlin is not too pleased with the bravado of Burress, who has predicted a Giants' victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.

"This is not how we've done things all year," said Coughlin Tuesday.

Burress doesn't see what the fuss is all about. He feels he is just expressing confidence in his team.

"I don't understand what the problem is," Burress said. "The goal is to come here and win, not just to step out here on Sunday and say, 'Yeah, I'm playing in the Super Bowl.' You can say that with more arrogance and more confidence, that were going to win the football game. The goal is to go out here and win the game."

Personally, I don't think Plax said anything horrible. I wish, though, that he hadn't said anything at all. I don't want the Giants giving the Patriots anything that even remotely resembles bulletin-board material, and Burress' remarks could be used that way.

Your thoughts?
