Default Did Holmes quit?

Quote:
With precious seconds ticking away, wide receiver Santonio Holmes showed absolutely no sense of urgency in getting ready for the next play. He trotted back to the line of scrimmage, giving every indication that he had resigned himself to the fact that the Steelers had no chance of pulling out the game.

Maybe I ,too, am overreacting since that went largely unnoticed and didnít have any bearing on the outcome of the game.

But a playerís body language can speak volumes. And it is often more telling than what the players say in the locker room after they have had time to collect their thoughts following a frustrating loss.

I think it would be tough on anyone not getting any catches and losing a tough game.
He should have a good game Monday, but will have to have a strong will and push against the above average Corners to Baltimore.

I know its tough when things arent going your way the team is losing and your not getting any touches but I dont care there is no excuse for quitting I dont care if the score is 30-0 with 1 sec. left I expect every player to play till the clock says 0:00. Maybe thats just me.

So let me see if I understand this??

Because Holmes didnt sprint to the line in the waning seconds of a game they were down by 2 scores, right after the QB got sacked for the 9th time instead of throwing it away. That effectively turning a 3rd and short into a 4th and long and he had to wait for Leftwich to call out the play to him anyways.......he is a quitter??

OK, yeah......what Edman said.

Well if that's your feeling, then any team that takes a knee to run out the clock when they have the game in hand is "quitting."

Holmes didn't quit. Don't take everything that's said in the media as gospel.

Who haven't we thrown under the bus yet?

"Bush Responsible for Big Ben's 8 Sacks?"

"Osama bin Laden spotted on Steelers Sideline during Loss!"

Gee - ya think?

Time for everyone, including the media jockstraps, to put the Eagles game behind us and concentrate on the game in front of us - the Rats at HF on Monday night. Lots of football yet to be played.

Santo quitting? That kid gives 150% each and every game. Me thinks this dude needs to give his schnoz a reprieve from the glue and pay attention.
