"As a starting wide receiver in the NFL, you walk out there on Sunday and line up," Burress said. "It's not Peyton Manning back there."
It's times like this when you wonder if Burress has any level of self-awareness. The guy is desperately searching for a job, but he doesn't realize it might not come off well if you go on national television and slyly disparage your former quarterback.
We're not saying a five-minute spot on some morning show will keep Burress out of the NFL. But it doesn't help.
