Default Steelers' Holmes aims for his first 1,000-yard season

The NFL leader in yards per catch last season was not New England Patriots receiver Randy Moss.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' reception yards and touchdown leader wasn't Hines Ward.

To the surprise of many, the owner of these three accolades is Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes, who quietly has developed into one of the most feared deep threats and respected young receivers in the NFL...

"Santonio wants to be great, and he wants to do what's required to be great," Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said. "He came [to camp] in absolute awesome physical condition. He's in great shape, he's a good worker, he's very vocal and can communicate with younger receivers, older receivers -- both sides. We expect great things from him, and I think he expects great things from himself."
I believe this season is going to be Santo's season to shine. He wants to succeed in the NFL and with the Steelers and is doing what it takes to achieve those goals. A diamond in the rough no more.

As long as he stays healthy, he'll get to over 1000 yards and probally top 1200 yards. He would have done it last year if not for his ankle.
