In a recent interview with our pal Tim Benz of 105.9 The X in Pittsburgh, Giants receiver Plaxico Burress spoke about the rumors that dogged quarterback Kordell Stewart during their mutual time in Pittsburgh.

“It had to be tough on him personally,” Burress told Benz. “I didn’t call him gay or anything like that. . . . I think that’s one of the reasons why he really couldn’t become the player that he wanted to be. . . . It has to play on you mentally a little bit.”

Burress elaborated on the topic in his new book, Giant: The Road To The Super Bowl, which he wrote with Jason Cole.

“People were talking about [Kordell] being gay,” Burress writes in Chapter 5. “The players heard that, but we never talked about it. I don’t know if Kordell is gay or not. It was none of our business. If ever we would have talked about it, it would have made everybody uncomfortable. If some player was gay, I don’t think he could come out while he was still playing. It would be real hard. It would mess a team up mentally and it wouldn’t be good for that person.”

Burress also said that the rumors caused Stewart to withdraw from teammates. “He had to watch the people that he hung around with. Just hanging out with your friends, or your boys and your cousins, all those things come to the surface. I think he just insulated himself after a while.”

As to Stewart’s performance on the field, Burress confirms what many league observers have long believed. “He wasn’t a real NFL quarterback, a drop-back quarterback,” Burress says. “They gave him time to develop as a classic drop-back passer, but it just never happened. He couldn’t, that wasn’t his game.”

Interesting since there has been some recent banter concerning both players on this board.

That is not is not hard to believe IMO. This city owes the man an apology. His career in Pittsburgh was totally mishandled. Through all of the attacks he endured he has shown remarkable composure off the field in regard to the Steelers to this day. Just my :2c

Benz would do his best work if he was on one of those Entertainment news programs where they chase celebrities around and tell gossip stories. That's his game.

We didn't learn anything here. It was a terrible rumor. We know the players heard the rumors. We know Kordell is a human being so it had to bother him. Nothing new hear except plaxico wrote a book..

Yeah, the first think I thought about was Garcia. The guy's sexuality has been questioned his entire career. How many of you purchased a "Browns Suck - Garcia Swallows" T-Shirt?? :lol: And yet, he's been pretty successful at every stop he has made in the NFL. Not to mention the playmate wife :evil:

Kordell had all the talent in the world. What he didn't have was the nerve to handle high pressure situations. Why can't we all just accept that and move on?

First of all anything I read attributed to Plax, I take with a grain of salt.
Plax is pimping his book, doesnt surprise me he's saying this kind of thing.
If true, then regardless of his sexuality, Kordell simply didn't have the maturity or mentality to succeed in a league where the microscope is on the QB more than anyone else on the team.
Maturity is usually gained by using your life experiences to better yourself, learn from your mistakes i.e. It appears after a lengthy run at it he could not correct intrinsic QB flaws. Thus he failed to progress as a QB.
The mentality is much harder to acquire, most times you either have it, or you dont.
It's a very tough mentality needed to be a leader of a premier NFL club.
Being thick skinned comes with the job, ask any former Pittsburgh QB.

How many people have a first name that rhymes with "Plaxico"? About that many people.

In the movie adaptation of "Giant," the role of Plaxico Burress will be played by James Dean. Rock Hudson will play Eli Manning, Sal Mineo will play David Tyree, and Dennis Hopper will play Tom Coughlin. The part of Tom Brady will be played by Elizabeth Taylor.

Don't forget Lauren Hutton as Michael Strahan...
