3. Plaxico Burress
It began as a great year for Plax, when he caught the game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl XLI. It ended as an embarrassing, foolish, and downright stupid year for Plax, when he shot himself in the leg at a nightclub. Sandwiched in the middle? – a contract hold-out for more money, a two-week suspension, three separate fines totaling $45,000, and at least two domestic disputes.
Here’s hoping he asked for pants with more than an elastic waistband for Christmas.
