I'll bet dollars to donuts he does just that. We couldn't have a monster receiving corps next year. Ward,Holmes,and Sweed could/should be scary good in the near future.

I found this part touching - I think people need to give this kid a break:

During the falling confetti, rookie wide receiver Limas Sweed looked for his mother on the field.

Before he found her, he reminisced about his rookie season, the drops, the catches, this game in which he did not grab a single pass.

You would have thought he caught 100.

"I am overwhelmed, overjoyed," Sweed said, wiping away tears. "It has been a long season. A lot of injuries on our team. Each week, a different challenge. I didn't do much in this game, but I feel like a big part of it. I haven't even gotten started yet in my career, but this is something I am going to hold close to my heart. We won the national championship at Texas, but this seems four times bigger right now. Man, I'm a Pittsburgh Steeler and a world champion. So sweet."

Now that is a "Lover Article" and people should click away on that one all day long.

Sweed wont get a break for awhile. We still ride Bens azz when he does something wrong and all he has done is win 2 Super Bowls and make play after play for us. I do hope though that he turns into a beast and adds a threat beside Holmes and Ward.

Holmes was the same way as a Rookie...he didn't "make a name" for himself til that OT game against the Bengals...you know...the one where we eliminated the Bengals from the Playoffs for the 2nd season in row...the one where we weren't even going to the playoffs and it was a must win for the Bengals but we went ahead and beat them anyway like the kitties they really are.

Yeah...Holmes was in the same boat as Sweed til that play. Sweed should come around. Heck, we won this one without Antwan or Cedric. Imagine that?

I have a feeling a lot of people are gonna lay off Ben at this point. They really have no choice, otherwise they'll just sound like a hating idiot.
