Brown. It appears many here are forgetting the numerous drops by Holmes, not to mention the off the field problems. Sure, great catch in the Super Bowl, but it was an even better pass by Roethlisberger.

Attitude, attitude, attitude. I loved Santonio but I hated the way he carried himself. He confirmed that he would take plays off on that Jets tv show last year, when he knew he wasn't getting the ball. Brown is always working hard. He is a practice warrior and he seems to really appreciate playing in the NFL much less with the Steelers. AB had a rough, long journey to the pros and he plays with that chip. Also, Santonio didn't seem to embrace Mike Wallace the way Wallace embraces Brown and Sanders. That tight bond, I think, is what has helped Brown develop so fast.

no doubt, if Ben hadn't thrown an INT in the first half that made it a ball game instead of a blow out, he would have won the MVP easily, heck I still think he probably should have won it, but Holmes had that immortal catch that was just icing on the cake that was several other key catches on that game winning drive

however I really don't remember Holmes for his drops, he was very clutch on 3rd downs, but considering our current WR corps he really wasn't anything special in that regard

heck, Holmes' SB winning catch was pretty much mirrored perfectly in Wallace's walk-off game winning catch in that shootout against the Packers in '09. If it wasn't for Holmes' catch being in the Superbowl, it would be very easy to argue that Wallace's catch was more difficult and clutch.

Yeah, I thought Ben should have gotten the MVP in that game too; he would have had at least one more passing TD earlier on in that game if Heath hadn't dropped it, and I still say his knee wasn't down on that rushing TD early on in the game (F*** you, Whisenhunt). But I had no problem with Holmes getting it; he was a beast in that game, and all through the playoffs that year. He had two game changers in the Ravens and Chargers games, so he was highly valuable that year.

As for the Santonio/Antonio debate... I think they are both amazing players but I think it's still a little too early to tell. I absolutely LOVE what I'm seeing from Brown but he hasn't been around long enough for me to accurately say "he's more mature than Tone" or "he 'gets it' more than Tone ever did." Because remember, there were still some questions about Brown early on in the season about his maturity and his ability to memorize routes and such. I think he's surpassed that, but he's only been a full contributor for about a year and I don't think we've seen enough from him yet to be able to accurately weigh his abilities and character against Santonio's.

And Holmes missed the 1st pass to him on the same play called on the opposite side of the field. It was another good pass by Ben that went right through Holmes's hands. Brown has better hands, better speed and no drug problems. I look to see Brown exceed Holmes's accomplishments on this team.
