Default A. Brown v. S. Holmes

Who would you take right now? Not based on future potential, but as they are playing right now? I'd take Brown. He's special... and reliable.

Both good players, but with Brown, at least of right now, there's zero drama and problems/trouble, and no "prima donna"/i'm bigger than the team" type of stuff. Talent appears to be about equal.
That makes the decision easily, don't even have to think about it. Brown.

I don't even think it's debatable that you'd take Brown over Holmes. He's younger, extremely skilled, and has by all accounts a great work ethic. Brown was a 6th round draft pick, and Holmes was a 1st rounder. Brown seems to practice and play as though he has a chip on his shoulder. He's a terrific player, and I hope he stays a Steeler for a long time.

I wish Brown would stop celebrating a first down as if it was the very first one he ever converted.

Ditto that first down celebration...ala santonio. Just get back to the huddle.
Even their first names are similar.

They're the same player as far as I'm concerned. Both are excellent after they get their hands on the ball. Brown seems to have better hands however.

I take Brown but Santonio still has the edge in my heart being SB MVP and all

if they were both in their prime, santonio.

brown is pretty close, but santonio at his best was a crisper route runner and better end zone target.

that's not to say that brown can't develop into that, but as far as now, that'd be my choice.

I wouldn't say Brown has better hands, but they're just as good. I see a lot of potential for this guy and I do think he can be just as good, if not better than Santonio but he hasn't made that Super Bowl winning catch yet.

Until then, I would give Tone the nod.

Holmes' hands are not very good. He was and still is notorious for dropping passes.
