I couldn't be happier with Holmes' performance and potential but don't discount Sweeeeed! Remember, it's only his first season and once he has a year or two of development and learns the system, I really think he has the potential to do great things.

I'm ready for Sweed to take over for Santonio.

Holmes has had his three strikes in Pittsburgh, so we need to get rid of him. I really do not like him.

Dallas is a long ways from Pittsburgh, and I may have missed something, but has Holmes been a big problem?

Keep doing it Melwede !
First off darn you for bringing up Sweed! Second he didn't do that good he made the mistake on the punt return and his catches were mediocre, he still has a long way to go.

MeMo has been doing good all season long for us and has that power and speed to get the yards. I would consider Russell the Jerome Bettis since he has become our short yardage player.

The only thing that's been bugging me since the game is the fact that Willie was getting nowhere, but Moore wasn't given the ball much until Willie went down. Now, don't get me wrong, I love what Willie brings and he brought it against the Chargers. But look how the ball started to finally move once Willie went out and Moore went in. If it ain't workin' Tomlin, mix it up! We've got options now.

Moore's a keeper, and 3 cheers for Tomlin for bringing him to the Burgh.

Oh yeah......Swwwwwweeeeeeddddd!

Sweed is really starting to look good out there, that 3rd down catch was AWESOME....A little more time to learn and get a bit more comfortable, I think we'll have a STUD WR in this league for years to come.

As for MeMo, what can ya say, the guy is STEPPING UP BIG TIME....He's done an AWESOME JOB so far.

I still love all the fans that posted their disgust that Sweed was #5 on the depth chart in the first few weeks.

Rookies take time to adjust in the majority of cases and Sweed was behind vets like Holmes, Ward, Washington......and he cant tackle on special teams.

3 years ago I thought that Washington-Holmes would be the starting WR of the future. Now I believe its gonna be Holmes-
Sweed.
