    Plax: Big Ben my favorite QB:

    Plax is a big fan!

    Steelers on Burress' wish list; WR calls Big Ben 'my favorite' QB

    March 06, 2012 at 4:23 PM ET

    Plaxico Burress is set to hit the free-agent market, and the 34-year-old receiver isn't shy about what teams he'd like to play for next season. Whether any of those teams will come calling, however, is a completely different conversation.

    Burress has morphed into a virtual one-man Radio Row of late, telling anyone who will listen that the Eagles are an ideal fit for his services. He won't exclude the Jets or Giants as possibilities, and, on Tuesday, he added another team to his list:

    The Pittsburgh Steelers , where he starred from 2000 to 2004.

    Plax gushed over Ben Roethlisberger , telling SiriusXM Blitz that the Steelers quarterback is the closest you'll get to John Elway in today's NFL.

    "Ben Roethlisberger has always been my favorite quarterback," Burress said . "People can say what they want to about him, but the guy just goes out and wins. And he's been that way since he came to Pittsburgh in 2004."

    It wasn't intended as a rip on Eli Manning , and Burress remains open to taking his magic back to the Giants .

    "It's always a great possibility," he said . "... Playing in (offensive coordinator) Kevin Gilbride's system is definitely one of the best, and you just see the production that those guys are having at the wide receiver position. ... and Eli has really just become a man (at) his position."

    We've heard a lot from Burress this offseason, but it remains to be seen if he'll generate tangible interest from an NFL team, much less from one of those on his wish list.

    Can't blame the guy for peddling his services to anyone that will listen, he doesn't have many years left so why not. He's right, Ben is the modern day John Elway there's no doubt about it. I wouldn't think the Steelers will give him the time of day but stranger things have happened.

    When you hear Plaxico talk, you are listening to the babalings of a desperate man. He's praising ANY potential team because he senses that no one may want his services. He looked like he was running in sand last year. Go look at any Jets game. I went and looked and he had little to nothing left.

    He's done.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    TD wise..yeah. Because he's a big target in the redzone. But overall, he isn't in Holmes zip code. Not anymore.

    Someone will work him out and then you'll see. He doesn't have it anymore.

    If he keeps running his mouth he is going to shoot himself in the foot.

    As much as I love Hines, I have to agree with K Train... Why does everyone want Hines back when he is basically done but wouldn't give Plax a chance as a #3 or 4 WR for a decent price? Forget the past. This is a business. Plax is still faster now than Hines ever was. With a QB like Sanchez, a lot of good WR's will look mediocre or worse. Can you imagine Ben scrambling in the red zone and having someone like Plax to throw the ball to?

    I say for the right price, bring him in!

    Plaxico has been and always will be a sore subject for me. You decided to leave, we don't want you back.
