Former New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress found an audience at Radio Row at the Super Bowl XLVIII Media Center in midtown recently, saying he has not ruled out the possibility of a comeback at age 36.

“I’m going to see how I feel,” Burress said. “If I don’t, I’m very satisfied with the things that I’ve done in this business. I’m just not going to go out there and risk my physical health just to go out and prove people wrong. The job is to prove to myself that I can go out there and be healthy and have an impact. I just don’t want to go out there to say that I came back from a major injury. I want to make the right decision for me.”

Never at a loss for words, Burress also proclaimed the Super Bowl between his Giants and the New England Patriots in 2008 as the greatest game ever.

“It’s one of those moments and one of those times in history that will never be forgotten,” Burress said today between interviews on Radio Row at the Super Bowl XLVIII Media Center in midtown. “To me, it’s still the greatest game ever played. No doubt. Best Super Bowl ever played. People ask me about it every day, especially being in this area and this market, New Jersey and New York.”

It seems that Sports Illustrated would agree with the outspoken Burress.
