Flag Day is right around the corner
"If that's his excuse, Mother's Day, if that's what he said, then we have to abide by it...But what's his reasoning now? I don't know. I can't answer your question. I thought he would be here. Obviously he's not, and it's sad. I don't think it had to come to this situation anyway."

-Hines Ward, on his thoughts about Plax's whereabouts
Whatever Plax's excuse, I'm guessing he's really shot himself in the foot contract-wise by not showing up. If Plax does decide to test the free agent market next season, he might experience similar contract problems now facing the bevy of experienced, above average QBs currently looking for work. Be careful what you wish for -- and have a happy Flag Day.
