No Buress, no problem?



Perhaps quarterback Eli Manning has just grown tired of hearing how much the New York Giants’ offense is supposedly going to miss star wide receiver Plaxico Burress.

Or maybe Manning is simply in denial about how the Giants’ passing game derailed as the team nose-dived at the end of last season after Burress accidentally shot himself in the leg at a Manhattan nightclub. Burress was cut loose during the offseason.

Either way, Manning sounded assured today that the Giants are poised to win without Burress during an appearance on the Boomer Esiason Show, per Bob Glauber of Newsday.

“I feel confident,” Manning said. “They didn’t need to go and get a big wide receiver. When Plaxico was injured, the guys stepped up and put up big points. It’s not like we need to have him. We put up big points.

“It’s not like we weren’t playing well because of Plaxico. We just weren’t playing very good football. Young guys are getting more experience. Last year was very beneficial for them because they got to play so much
