Plaxico Burress: Giants will win Super Bowl

Former Spartan Plaxico Burress made plenty of news leading up to Super Bowl XLII. With bold predictions and undaunted confidence, he told the papers like it was going to be,

Burress told a New York newspaper that the Giants would defeat the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Jan. 29, 2008, New York Post: As he pulled his car up to the Giants Stadium tunnel to unload his bags, Burress was asked by The Post a direct question: Are you ready to make history? "You better believe it," the towering Giants receiver said.

And then, as he entered the stadium and turned left toward the Giants locker room, Burress was asked for his prediction. Burress never hesitated, flatly stating "23-17." Burress was a bit off - but the point was taken and he played a tremendous role in the upset victory.

Go Green, Go White

He didn't identify the winning team. He didn't have to, I guess.

Not sure if anyone noticed, but during a press conference last week, Burress sported a green Michigan State football t-shirt.

Spartans Live!
