Default why santonio holmes will find success in pitt.

very good article by john clayton sums up why holmes will not travel the route of the large number of 1st round wr busts:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/column...ohn&id=2448029

in brief, the steelers have the luxury to patiently bring him along slowly, and not expect him to come in and put up #1 wr stats immediately. he will be allowed to develop.

Great article, and Clayton may look the part of the Geek, but he does know his football.

lol. he is a supergeek and it pisses me off every time he pronounces "negotiate" as "ne-go-see-ate" but with a duquene education during the 70's you know hes smart AND knows his football. he hides his steelers homerism well and is rather objective.

Yeah, he's not so bad... you have to like him more than Salisbury.

Good read. Being an Ohio boy, I hope he finds success with the Steelers.

i was hesitant with the steelers taking a wr in the 1st round when it looked like jackson and moss would be the 2 most likely options. and until the failed drug test reports of lendale white came out i though it would be almost impossible to pass up on a back of his ilk (hoping he could have the potential of larry johnson or career of jerome bettis)

but landing the consensus #1 wr in the draft when we were drafting #32 makes as much sense as taking polamalu, ben, h. miller, in the previous 3 years. (all 3 were the best and #1 players available at their position) im very confident holmes will follow their same path to success.

One day, just one day I would love to see Clayton go ape $hit and lay out Sean Salisbury on live TV. That would make my year.
