Default Re: Santonio Holmes: Jets winning SB would be slap in Steelers' face

Letting Santonio go is the gift that keeps on giving. First without Holmes punching his own ticket out of town we never get to see what Mike Wallace can do as a starter. In Wallace's second season he exceeded Holmes' career highs in both yards and touchdowns for a single season. Plus he ( Wallace) broke the Steelers single season record for 100 yard games by a receiver in a season. Plus Emmanuel Sanders and Antoine Brown emerged as big time talents, players who will pay dividends for seasons to come.

Even if Holmes had been retained, there was no way this wasn't going to be his last season in Pittsburgh. He was innattentative at meetings, took plays off, and obviously Mr. Wake and Bake is another positive test from a years suspension. Oh yeah, and he wants to be paid like a superstar, which he's not.

One last bonus from dropping Bongtonio, his clinching touchdown catch against the Patriots last week gave the Steelers home field for the AFC title game. That's not to say we're guaranteed a win, but let's put it this way, if we can't beat the Jets in Pittsburgh it's really kind of hard to make the case we would have beaten the Pats in Gillete.

So any way you cut it, the Steelers benifited both in the short and the long term by getting rid of Holmes when they did,

I never would have believed it at the time, but we have been fine without Holmes. He is a great reciever, he is a big time play-maker who delivers when it really matters. However, I wouldn't trade the receiving core we have now for anybody.

If Holmes believes that the Jets winning the Superbowl would be a slap in the face to the Steelers, then he's revealing just how personal he really takes getting traded away.

He's been around the Jets too long now. Now he's becoming one of them as now noted by his "talk trash" tone of speaking... Once a Steeler, always a Steeler ? He "was" a Steeler, but by his admission here, he's no longer one. He's kind of like the "Terry Bradshaw" of our former Wide Receivers ... I now give him 2 thumbs down...

Get over yourself, Santonio. We wanted to trade you.

It wasn't a good fit for the Steelers organization. You're better off with the Jets........and we're better off with Wallace, Brown, and Sanders. Period. End of story.
Like i said...get over it....This win has nothing to do with you.
