I don't know, he isn't really saying anything bad about Holmes or the Steelers. He has a point that the past few WRs that we did draft weren't so hot.

The Steelers weren't an offensive-minded team (of legitimacy) until Ben came around. We still have the threat of the run, and we're GOING to. Ben has the talent to put it in the hands of receivers, and with every new passing weapon we get, the Steelers are more and more formidable.

I almost pity the league if the team stays healthy next season. OK, no, I don't. :D

I just hope we don't get pass happy like we did a few years ago. I know Ben is no Tommy Gun, but still... I wanna grind the ball down their throats all game.

Actually, this wasn't too bad of an anlysis. I disagree with the Steelers assessment, and I still think the Bills reached for McCargo, but other wise spot on...

"Holmes may be more willing to accept the realities of playing in the Steel City -- more blocking and less pass-catching opportunities than first-round receivers are used to "

So how is that not a fit. He says that Holmes is not a fit in Pittsburgh but then justifies his spot on the team. It makes no sense.

Yeah,of course our last few first round WR's didn't pan out.

Troy Edwards had Korkie passing to him and Plax has Korkie,Turnover Tommy,and then finally Ben.Plax wanted to be the center of attention and he wasn't.

Santonio Holmes however will fit.We showed we can throw the ball in the playoffs and as we went to the end of the season.Holmes is a much better reciever than Randle El will ever be.Between Ward,Holmes,Miller,Wilson,Morgan,and Tuman we have a bunch of guys that can catch the football.

The Steelers and Holmes will prove this douchebag wrong in the end.
