Default Holmes not impressed by Chargers CBs

Calling out Jammer and Cromartie?

Why?


Holmes not impressed by Chargers CBs

By Kevin Acee
September 30, 2009, 2:19 p.m.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and his Super Bowl MVP receiver, Santonio Holmes, contrasting opinions on Chargers cornerbacks Quentin Jammer and Antonio Cromartie today.

"That corner tandem of Jammer and Cromartie is spectacular," Tomlin said. "They play on the line of scrimmage a bunch, and we have to be ready for a battle from our wide receivers' standpoint."

Holmes, on the other hand, was matter-of-fact in his assessment. "Honestly, two normal corners," Holmes said flatly. "At one point, they were doing what they were supposed to do -- intercept balls and keep opponents from catching the ball."

Holmes said he views all corners that way. "They've got to see me on the field Sunday, too," he said

Jammer and Cromartie, by the way, have allowed 13 receptions this season while being targeted 25 times. By way of comparison, Steelers starting corners Ike Taylor and William Gay have been burned 27 times on 42 passes.

Holmes is funny. They are probably equally unimpressed with his hands lately and could make the case that they are doing the minimum required, but Holmes is not.

He would be better off saying, "No Comment" and let his play do the talking at this point.

He needs to keep his mouth shut. I hate when players say stupid things about the other team.

He didn't say they sucked, just normal corners. No smack talk there.

Doesn't matter with the media - that's how Anthony Smith's comment about the Steelers being able to beat the Pats* IF THEY PLAYED UP TO THEIR POTENTIAL got turned into a "guarantee of a win." If you don't offer a superlative when discussing an opponent with the media, then you should simply say "no comment," otherwise the media will turn it into smack. It's what they do.

That's why they need to just keep quiet.
