Default Santonio Holmes as a steeler

Based on what he has done on and off the field I see a resemblance to plexico.
The minor Misd arrests that plex. got himself into in cleveland for drinking and then the virrginia beach arrest, hell holmes was arrested twice before becoming a steeler.
The steelers would be smart in telling him to step up on and off the field or he will be another plexico burress.

This board would be smart to ignore anything else you have to say.

Holmes is our #1 deep threat WR that we've been waiting decades for - and you want to dump him

Brilliant!

IMHO, he's not that bad.

He was supposed to have that breakout year...but with all the problems with Ben's injuries, the lack of a strong run game, and poor offensive line play...he's been unable to have that year. However without him we are 9-5 instead of 11-3 because we might have lost both games to Baltimore without big plays from Holmes.

I'm not giving up on him, and I don't think many people here are either. He got suspended without pay for 1 game for the pot thing...I wouldn't doubt that he had a heart-to-heart with Dan Rooney about that and was told to quite until he's no longer a Steeler or he won't be a Steeler for long.

Hopefully next year Ben won't be as dinged up, and we'll get an o-linemen (or five) that can actually sustain a block long enough for plays to develop.

And if he continues to be a problem or doesn't produce on the field, he'll be cut or simply not resigned when his contract is up.

Hopefully unlike plex, Santo will LEARN from his mistakes.

If you look at their careers in parallel, I think Plex was a better receiver from year 2 of their careers forward. Plex had 2 real nice years (years 2 and 3) for us that Santonio has yet to come close to. I also feel that Plex was much more of a threat on the field.

That is not saying that Holmes is not a good receiver. But...honestly, I thought he would be more of a threat than he is.

Santo made some bad mistakes before he took the field for the Steelers, even after his drafting.

I really haven't seen or heard about him in the news since then. So there's nothing in his actions or words that even resemble that of plax. He isn't getting a huge ego, he's playing the game, and he's staying out of trouble.

I worry not about Santo becoming like plax.

They once both wore the evil cornrows, that's the only resemblance.

No wonder the crackers are still ascared of them.

After last season, I think we all expected him to step up more this year. I think he's actually taken a step back this season.

Course, a great playoff run could always change my opinion.
