He snuck into a radio job in San Diego (XTRA sports 690 - same as Jim Rome) right before ESPN made the big move into radio...but then he somehow slipped into TV. (USC media connections)

I'll listen to what Clayton is saying everytime.

Well I made the point when we drafted Holmes the reason he will have success his rookie year is the fact he doesn't have to carry the offense just fill a role. His role will be big plays.

You know, it's funny, because I actually started to doubt my own guy after reading too much draft crap, but the dude was just always clutch. If the Buckeyes needed it, he came up big. And OSU is NOT a passing team.

I'm sticking with 50 catches for 800 and maybe 5- TD's.

Yea I think Holmes could get those numbers. I have Holmes at around 40 catches for 700 yards and 6 TD's.

I look for him to have around 50 to 80 catchs for around 800 to 1000 yards with around 8 to 10 td's

I don't see Holmes getting 1000 yards. Hines Ward will get his share of catches and yards. Hines should have another 900 to 1100 yard season. Throw in Heath Miller and he will get his share also. Plus the Steelers will run the ball at least 55 percent of the time this year. I just don't see enough footballs to go around for Holmes to get 1000 yards.

i think holmes could have a good year because alot of teams will think to double hines ward becasue he is the only receiver we have and it will be a chance for santonio and miller to have good years.

Once again, the brass got the no.1 guy on their board. We have some of the best talent evaluators in the sport. Holmes has the physical and mental tools to be a very good one. So many wide outs turn out to be busts due to high expectations all he has to do is watch what Hines does. Hard work can become contagious he''s be a pro bowler in three years if no before then.

I see more passing in general for the Steelers, and much like Miller quickly did well with Ben, I think Holmes will also, but in a different niche.

THIS guy will be the legitimate deep ball threat we've lacked for so long because of his blistering speed, but I think the Steelers will mask it well. It will come on plays where the deep ball isn't expected at all, finding him in single coverage.

Without that brace on, maybe Ben can tighten up that spiral & put on a show this season with Holmes, can't wait to see!

i thought we had a pre-season thread predicting santonios numbers for the year. i guess this was it. (good article too. clayton was right)

anyways good call suit.

49 catches/ 824 yds and 2 td's.
