Default Re: Holmes is a rising star

Just to correct a couple things, Santonio Holmes is not really all that small. He's 5'11" and 190 lbs. He's a giant compared to Steve Smith. Someone also questioned his speed? He consistently ran between a 4.32 and a 4.36 during his pro day workouts, and he had the flu while he did it. He was always clutch at OSU, and he's definitely learning how to play the pro game faster than most, since most WR's take 3 years to really break out.

as far as holmes. i don't really want to reiterate the above post, but holmes runs awesome routes, blazing speed, and with those hands ben could be throwing him eggs and hed catch them unbroken. put him in a system like indy NE, philly, or detroit, or cincy i think you would easily see 1200 yrds 10 td's every year

Having the deep threat of Holmes helps open up the passes to the TE and to Ward. Now if Wilson and Washington would be more consistant with their route running and their catches, our passing game would be right up there with one of the best.

I feel he his really coming in to his own this year. The Bengals game really impressed me. It seemed as if he had no fear.
