Don't trust Willie Parker? Thats crazy all Willie did last year was rush for 1200 yards with a 4.7 yards per carry average. Plus set a Super Bowl record with a 75 yard TD run. What does this guy have to do? Sure he isn't the power back that we are used to and will have his share of no gains or 1 yard runs. But on the very next play he can take it to the house.

Cowher never won the Super Bowl all those years with a power back. He finally won it with a speed back. Today's NFL is built around speed and the ability to score quick. Sure the running game is still important. You can't win without a running game. But sometimes you have to score quick. With Willie Parker and the added weapons in Holmes and Reid. The Steelers have gotten with the times and finally get it that speed kills.

That new found speed is what Cowher will use to make history and bring home that #6 ring.

I think the question is... How will Holmes effect the defense?

cowher doesn't give him much credit for his blocking...

holmes-I'm feeling that is probably the main reason why the [Steelers] picked me, because of my ability to block and my toughness. I'm looking forward to getting in there, making plays and blocking.

cowher-He is an effort blocker.

Is he a physical player?
cowher -He tries to be. He's an aggressive player.

i guess bill missed that video clip...

i didnt know, but jack tatum went to osu and every year they give out the jack tatum award for the hardest hit of the season. s. holmes was the 1st offensive player to win the award.

from his interview after being drafted (he also mentions having a hines ward jersey hanging up at his house and how much he loves blocking):

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_449141.html

Q: Jack Tatum was a safety for Ohio State and the Oakland Raiders with a reputation for nasty hits. What was it like to become the first Ohio State offensive player to receive the Jack Tatum Award for best hit?

A: That's an award a lot of defensive players look to have. My coaches would tell people that I'm a great receiver, but what separates me is my ability to block.

Meh.. If you actually watch that interview, Cowher sings nothing but praises for Santonio. The fact that he's a smaller guy means he's going to have to adjust to the NFL when it comes to blocking, considering the faster, stronger players, etc. The Effort Blocker statement is actually a compliment. They know what he brings to the table, and they hope it translates to the NFL.

Haven't even had mini camp and already we got the Cowher haters. :)
