Default Santonio Holmes

Not sure if this has been debated before on the forum because I am new here. I love Holmes and he showed throughout the playoffs and in the Super Bowl that he can turn it on and take over a game when he wants. However, I hope he doesn't let this get to his head and become a selfish player like T.O. or Chad Johnson. I am not comparing him to those two, so don't put words n my mouth. He's been arrested a couple times since being in the league. Usually the Steelers don't tolerate that kind of behavior. He had a selfish (missed penalty) in the Super Bowl with his TD celebration at the end. Do you feel that these are just minor bumps in the road that he has out grown, or do you think they will escalate this season with the increased media coverage he will get from being SB XLIII MVP and showing that he can take over a game.

HIs advantage is that he has a leader like Hines Ward to look up to.

Ben won't let him get a swolled head.

Find another "controversy".

I think he has matured since he has come to the Steelers. That, however, does not mean that he will not have more problems in the future. Hopefully he doesn't, but there is no way to tell at this point.

It's not meant to be a "controversy", but a discussion to pass time for the next few days. July is the most boring month of the year for sports.

Well, I'll just take the side that our SB MVP is only going to get better.

I can see both Holmes and Ward going over 1000 yds this year.

Something tells me Tomlin won't let ANY player get bigger than his team. So yeah - lets pick on Holmes for wanting the ball. It's not like he's all over the tee-vee like Chad.

I do worry about Holmes also. He will be seeking a new contract soon and if he wants it in Pittsburgh, then he needs to show the maturity that the Rooneys expect...

Tone has come along way and, still has to get better. Doing the little things like less showboating after making first down catches. I really like he has shown that big players make big plays in big games. I really think this year he could put up some huge numbers.
