Amani Toomer joins the "Wide Receiver Whining Club"

Speaking of classy guys not acting so classy, Amani Toomer is unhappy with the Giants and the role they used him in at the end of the season.

From friend of the blog Bob Glauber's What About Bob? blog:
"The last couple of games I wasn't a big part of the offense and we lost a big percentage of the games (four of the last five)," Toomer said. "I feel like you can't tell me (that) didn't play a big role in it. I think it did."
I don't know, Amani, maybe your declining skill over the last five seasons has something to do with it? Maybe you just weren't open? Steve Smith's emergence as an Eli Manning favorite certainly didn't help.

Toomer hasn't been considered a "go-to guy" since before the Giants signed Plaxico Burress. For him to act as though the team would have won if he had the ball more screams Terrell Owens, who is the undisputed WRWC heavyweight champ.
