Default Ask The Steelers - Santonio Holmes ? Part 1

ASK THE STEELERS

Steelers.com will be bringing you the Ask the Steelers feature throughout the summer. Fans submitted the questions that were asked. Please understand that we receive an incredible number of questions for each player, with many of the questions being similar, and not all of the questions can be answered. We selected as many as possible, and took your questions to the current subject to get your answers.

SANTONIO HOLMES – PART 1


Dave Martin from Hartville, OH: Welcome to the Steel City. Which of the two characteristics is of greater value from you: Your physical capabilities or your desire to be great and why?
Santonio Holmes: Probably my physical characteristics are greatest to me for the simple fact that I am living for the moment and not the things that I can do later. I will let the fans be the judge of what type of person I am in the long run. The legacy that I will probably leave behind can be judged by the fans.

Rian Weber from Denver, CO: First off, welcome to the team, I think you're going to be a great addition. If you could list your top goals for this upcoming season what would they be?

Santonio Holmes: My top goal for the upcoming season is to become a starter for the Steelers. I want to catch as many passes that Big Ben or Charlie (Batch) can throw to me throughout the year. I want to also be a part of the team, have my presence felt on the field and make as big an impact on the organization as possible.

Dale Kegley from Wichita KS: What is the biggest difference between the NFL level compared to the college level?
Santonio Holmes: The speed of the game. The players and the mentality that they have are also different. The way the game is run is different. It is more of an organizational thing. You have to be challenged every day to be a part of the organization. When you are in college you can go with the flow. Things can change in college and you can be okay.

This part of the article is kind of hmmmm

Thomas D. Potter from La Pine, OR: Are you going to be able to remain the kind of person that you are now with all the fame, and attention you are going to receive as a receiver for the Black & Gold?

Santonio Holmes: Just knowing that I am doing something I love to do, but I am not doing just to get ahead in life by playing football and receiving this attention. I am doing something I love to do and I won't take one day of playing in the NFL for granted. I am going to live every day like it's my last one.

His actions aren't showing that. I think Cowher, Mr Rooney, and his teammates can straighten him out. He just needs to keep himself out of trouble.

My assumption is that the answers to the written questions were prepared by his agent, so I have no reason to believe Holmes has even signed off on what was written.

As you observe, let's look at deeds, not words; so far, so bad.

As many other posters have stated, let's hope Holmes straightens out once camp starts and he can focus on contributing.

We'll see.................We'll see.

I had such high hopes for him. But it seems to be getting worse.

I really hope that Bill can get hold of him and straighten him out. If he can, then we'll be unstoppable. If not, the Santonio will be out of a job, and we'll just have to bring Willie Reid up to speed faster......no probs.

All talk so far. He has alot of proving to do. First he has to prove that he is a man. Second he must prove that he is a Rooneys Steeler, so far not even close. He is so far away! He best get it together

Yeah I agree...I was totally Pumped with this pick, but seems more and more leading to camp that it was a wrong feeling. I hope he can, he got the talent but does he got the mental skills that is required to be a Steeler? We shall start to know in less than 2 weeks.
