Willie probably won't play, santo's out. Lot's of passing for big ben.

Alby's Blog: Santonio Out Sunday
Friday, October 24, 2008 updated: 1:34 pm EDT October 24, 2008

Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes will be inactive for Sunday's game against the New York Giants after his Thursday afternoon arrest for marijuana possession.

Head coach Mike Tomlin said he has spoken with Holmes about the situation

"When you're a great team, there will be distractions," Tomlin said.

Wide receiver Nate Washington will start in place of Holmes.

Running back Willie Parker is listed as doubtful for the game. Offensive tackle Marvel Smith will not play. Defensive end Aaron Smith will likely miss the game for personal reasons, too, Tomlin said. The Steelers said Smith has their total support.

I wonder what the point of deactivating Holmes is. Is he not suspended? Is he still getting his game check? If so, why not just play him?

i think this was the right move by the Steelers. if the man is dumb enough to do that than he should face the consequences, lets jus hope goodell takes it easy on him since its a 1st offense and that the Steelers took action on him (but i would be surprised)

A proper punishment for an idiot. Santo has all the upside in the world, but he's an idiot.

Let's see what Sweed and Baker have to offer. Nate will be fine.
