Santonio and Plax Mutiny Against Jets OC?
 
These are the team players the Steelers should never have allowed to get away to the Jets:banging:

The Daily News has learned that wide receivers Santonio Holmes, Plaxico Burress and Derrick Mason have individually gone to Rex Ryan in the past few weeks to question offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's system....

i guess it wasnt enough for tone to trash the coaches, now he's got his sights set on the OL as he calls them out and throws them .under the bus

looks like the jets dumped off the wrong veteran complaining wr to the texans for a 7th rounder.

but then again, the cancer who is now attrributed to the divide in the lockerroom, IS the team captain.

"THATS HOW YOU BE GREAT!" lol.

trading him for what essentially turned out to be antonio brown looks like a complete steal at this point.

i dont recall any steelers leadership offering anything other than support when he was benched for blazing a fatty in his SUV. :smoker:

Yep, chances are he would have left anyhow and the other good thing is his leaving allowed Mike Wallace to break out last year. Santonio's replacements have a better attitude than he does too. I know some get down on Brown because he gets excited when he makes a big play but you never see Antonio calling guys out like that and he doesn't have Santonio's problems with the law either. I was shocked when we traded Holmes but it looks more and more like we made the right decision. H

I was shocked about losing Holmes too. I was also pretty upset about losing the biggest play maker on our offense. Just shows how wrong I was. Now more than ever I'm glad that the Steelers have the sense and dignity to get rid of players like that.

Maybe some of you will remember this when you start spewing madness about how the FO doesn't know what they're doing.

it's not the FO that doesn't know what they're doing, it's the coaches.

This proves that race was not an issue at all in the "Ben vs. Santonio" debate.

Since the transgressions, which resulted in the FO keeping Ben and dumping Santonio(and Burress years ago)

Santonio- Served his suspension, comes back, causes huge chemistry problems because of his ego.
Burress- Lands himself in jail, back in the league less than 2 month, and he's banding together with Holmes to cause chemistry problems on a team that went to the AFC championship game last year(and lost to the Steelers!)

Ben- Served his suspension, comes back, helps us get to a super bowl, quietly gets married in the off-season, plays his heart out with a bum foot gets us a big win, and refuses to even entertain the idea of criticizing his offensive line even though not one single person would blame him for doing so.

Those traits are why the FO kept Roethlisberger and not the other two knuckleheads. When times are tough off the field, the entire team and organization was there for Ben(just like they were for Holms), except Ben repays that on the field and in the locker room, he's able to learn from his mistakes(at least to this point *knocks on wood*
