Default Holmes, stop with the show-boating

Holmes had 2 catches. 0 touchdowns. Yet he jumps up from his plays and points to his bicepts like he is Superman. This is so disappointing and embarrassing.

The first time was when he caught a TD, but it didn't count due to a questionable penalty (another topic). And, to make matters worse... the Steelers were LOSING at the time! He still has to draw attention to himself. I hated seeing that. Not the "Steelers football" that I have known and loved for 40 years.

When Ward scores, he gives the ball to a fan in the stands; Moore junps into the stands; Miller hands the ball to a ref. What does Holmes do???? Point to himself and take all the credit like a douchebag. Reminds me of Deion or Irvin, or Eric Green.

Never thought I would say this after that SB performance, but Holmes is my least favorite Steeler.

There is no "i" in Steelers, but there sure is one in Santonio.

Just so you know, I'd be glad to have any of those guys on the Steelers in their prime.
And Green is one of the top couple TE's in Steelers history in my opinion. Anyways, it's a game. It's meant to be fun. Personally, I think all "Excessive Celebration" penalties should be nixed unless it significantly slows the flow of the game. Ward has done some pretty big showboating in his day by the way.

Um, we weren't losing, it was 0-0. His TD that was wrongly overturned by a bad OPI call eventually became a FG that was the first points of the day, giving the Steelers a 3 - 0 lead.

The second instance you are referring to we were also in the lead (it was 13-10 and his play put us in prime position to make it 20-10 or at least 16-10 if Mendy didn't cough it up) and it was the most explosive and dynamic play of our season that didn't result in a touchdown.

Way to let your blind hatred skew the facts of reality.

He's a great player and as much as I too hate all his god dam showboating and self-love I'm happy to have him.

Holmes has never been a problem with his celebrations....personally i love it everytime he gets a first down he stands up and points the ball foward and then drops it....its great! lol its like a signature thing and as long as he isnt costing the team 15 yards for an excessive celerbration penalty i dont care what he does

Seriously, you guys need to stop with the bitching about Holmes' celebrations. The NFL isn't supposed to stand for No Fun League. He isn't pulling a TO and pulling out a sharpie or putting on a HOF jacket, so I don't know why it's such a huge deal.

i feel kind of blessed that Holmes' antics are the worst on the team. most high profile recievers get fined almost all the time for showboating. just watching the bengals game today (stupid bears), Chad 85 has something to do after any catch. Holmes flexes, signals a first down (which i love, cause Ward's been doing the same thing for 32 years now) oh well. when he starts pulling out cell phones and other objects he's hidden on the field, then we have a problem.

can this be considered a delay of game penalty with the new rules this year?

What good is a win if people can't bitch and moan about it?
The only thing worse than Steelers fans after a loss is Steelers fans after a win.
