I'm wondering what you all are expecting out of Holmes his first year? History suggests very few rookie WR's make a dramatic impact, usually breaking out in year 2 or 3.

Please don't interpret this question as being negative simply because I'm a Bengal fan. I'm just curious about what kind of numbers you honestly think he'll put up.

Your right my Bengals friend rookie recievers usually don't make a big impact during their rookie years. But I think one reason usually when the top recievers are drafted they are drafted on teams that need much help and rely on rookies to make difference. With Santonio being drafted by the Steelers. He won't have to carry our offense. Just fill a role. Steelers will run the ball. Plus we already have Hines Ward and Heath Miller. So Holmes doesn't even have to carry the passing game. I expect Cedric Wilson to be the number two reciever for the first half of the year until Holmes is ready.

So I think Holmes numbers might be around 40 catches for 700 yards with 6 TD's. Maybe this is to low or high. But since you asked I answered.

Holmes will do what Cedric Wilson can't, and that's attract attention from more than 1 DB. If he fulfills just that role next year, all the rest is gravy, cause, I'll tell ya, if you try to gameplan a strategy and DON'T account for Holmes, he'll make you pay.

I would say you will probably see him catch a few more balls than Randle El did last year, somewhere in the 35-45 range. Somewhere around 600 yards or so. But you never know we will have to wait for the season to find out!

why is that?

why not? 700 yds + 5 td would be great in the steelers system. judging by what heath miller achieved last year it could be considerably more.

Tony hipchest I'm with you I see 40 catches for around 700 yards and 6 TD's for Holmes next year.

This kid's total impact won't come in his numbers, he is going to stretch the field and he is also going to be a pretty good blocker. And I agree about 40 750 6tds

I dont think he'll score more than 3 or 4 times. Id say 657 yards, 3 TD's, 39 receptions

53 catches for 816 yards and 8 TDs. He will also return a KO for 6, plus have another called back due to a hold.

those predictions sound about right. I just wanted to see if anyone was going to predict 1000 yards and 10 Td's

If someone goes out and says that even steeler fans would be questioning them. Steeler fans may be crazy, but we're still smart :sofunny:

I dont look for him to be a impact player as a WR until year 2 or 3, I do how ever see him becoming a big time impact player on KR or PR this year.
