Default santonio holmes vs torry holt

just thinking of the similarities of torry holt and s. holmes: same size, both 1st wr taken in their class, both went to a team 1 year away from a SB, both went to a team as an understudy to an excellent, already established #1 wr.

their 1st year stats are quite similar too:


G.... GS.... Rec..... Yds..... Avg..... Lg...... TD..... 20+..... 40+..... 1st
16.... 4...... 49....... 824.... 16.8.... 67....... 2...... 12........ 3.......... 41 santonio holmes
16..... 15..... 52...... 788..... 15.2... 63....... 6...... 12........ 3.......... 32 torry holt

holt edged holmes in td's but holt definitely had the edge in games started.

may the rest of holmes career mirror holts

How many fumbles did Holt have in his first year compared to Holmes?

Normally that's the case with a WR only going into his second year. For only being in his first year I thought he played better and was more reliable than Washington and Wilson.

I'll happily take what he brought in his first year in the NFL, especially the OT TD catch which ended the Bengals season.

And on that note:


For what it's worth, I tried using the new youtube feature and a blank white box showed up in the post.

But Holt has returned only 3 kicks in his career and that was in 1999. As we're all to aware, kick returns have accounted for a few of Holmes' fumbles.

Agreed. He asked I answered...lol. I kind of figured people would take into account that Holmes was returning punts and Holt was not during their respected rookie seasons.

now in holts 2nd year he made the jump to 80+ catches, 1600+ yds and a 19+ypc average.

hopefully bens head and body are straight and holmes will be the starter and not the 3rd wr. its not impossible to think he cant have a huge year.
