I'm a fan of Burress but he deserved the one game suspension for not calling in and the 1st quarter benching for not going to treatment when he was supposed to. He has to follow the same rules as the rest of the team, and the rest of the team doesn't seem to have a problem with it.
I'm not a big fan of Burress after reading all of the crap he's given the team and total lack of respect for his teammates and coaches. I don't think this one event is deserving of a benching (and think most coaching staffs would agree) - it's the continued disrespect and lack of any other options that led to this. I didn't see any vote from his teammates whether they care or not, so not sure where your comment comes from?
Besides, the game he was completely out of I think was the game against the Seahawks where they won 44-6.
Well, that was the point of this whole discussion. Do players who mean more to their team (i.e. Adrian Peterson) get softer treatment than players who the team can get by without. If the Giants knew their chances of winning with Burress off the field were signfiicantly reduced, would they have held him out of the whole game? If so, and they lost the game, would that be fair to his teammates?
