Default Santonio the Best?

With all the talk about Troys workout regimine, it reminded me that just before the end of the season, I heard that Santonio was going to be training with Jerry Rice in the offseason.

Is this true? If so, do you think that Santonio will have a monster year (career)?

I wanna see 1700+ yds w/ 17+ TDs

yea but we now can keep defenses true. Giving Santonio even more room to strech the field. I think Limas/Mendenhall only gives our recievers more opportunity. Defenses are gonna cringe when they try and cover all our weapons.

He'll be fantastic, but I don't think he'll get enough touches to hit those kind of numbers.

Santonio is good, but he's never gonna get numbers like that when we have all those other weapons. Besides Heath Miller is still the teams best red-zone target, at least untill we know what Sweed can do

If he gets 1000 yards that'll be a big deal

i know its a strech (great fantasy stats tho lol) but i really think he has the potiental to be one of the best. I hate seeing wasted talent. But i dont care what his stats are as long as we get the next 6 or so Super Bowls!!

without cheating like that other team....

As most of you have already pointed out, Holmes won't be putting up the huge catches/yards/touchdowns numbers that an elite receiver normally gets, but make no mistake, Holmes is an elite receiver.

He has a good catch %, gets a lot of yards after the catch, and has a very good yards per reception average. That's not to mention his above average blocking (at least in my opinion).

He finished the season ranked 6th among all receivers on a per-play basis, behind only andre johnson, moss, owens, Jennings and anthony gonzalez. He was number 1 or 2 up until he was injured.

Those calling for a break out season have missed the boat....
