Good read. Also gives fans a pespective of what it's like to write different stuff for injuries so the other team and media doesn't find out.

Didn't get to finish it and I gotta head out soon, but wow thats pretty crazy so far. Plaxico is the man for playing with all the injuries he's had this season - not like he's the only one, just saying I don't think anyone would have questioned him if he said he wanted to sit for the super bowl.

If anyone's read either The Gm or War Without Death: Life in the NFC EAST

They would've read passages detailing that he's one of the hardest studying wide receivers in the league and any myth about a lack of intelligence is purely fictitious.

Apparently he's always doing extra study and has "perfect handwritten notes in all the margins of the play book"

I enjoyed reading that, I might consider buying the softcover when it comes out. Crazy and painful stuff Plax went through, known and (at the time) unknown.

The mother of all books comes out in sept. That's Ralph Vacciano's book. He had access to all the Giants coaches, players, owners, and former GM, Ernie Accorsi. Talks about the idiot coordinator Hufangel, and talks about the gameplan, including how the final TD in the superbowl was all planned out. Hence us calling the same exact play out of Trips right formation for 3 straight plays trying to get the Pats to play cover 0, as plax talks about in the above link.

But this book seems good.


Also, I agree above, he is one of the hardest working WRs, and very quiet guy.

The high school he went to (in my town) isnt known for its academics and is probably in the roughest part of town. So im kind of suprised to hear he is smart and hard working. But good for him.

He did what most other athletes do when "writing a book". He gave his ideas to someone with a brain, and he did all the writing.

But i don't know, i've never read the darn book, but he was on Jim Rome today, and he doesn't seem to be the sharpest tool in the shed.

He wouldn't be the first guy i think of when it comes to being a writer..

Yup. Anybody who has read Mick Foley's Have A Nice Day can attest to this as well, as it was a huge point in his book. Very very very very few people in sports actually write their own books. They basically just conduct interviews and an outside author does most, if not all, of the writing.
