Default Re: Not Liking Our #1 Draft Pick

I dont mind alittle arrogance in a player, if you're good and you know it..then so be it. Just prove it on the field every sunday, and every day in camp and during practice in the regular season. He's had a rough life, I'll give him that. Having said that, the dude's gotta realize what he's got in front of him. A chance to be a regular contributor on the defending super bowl champs. A chance to be the main guy opposite Hines in a couple years. The chance to impress upon young atheletes the importance of seizing the moment and not letting an opportunity pass by while you screw it up.

I'll wait and see but right now Im still in his corner till we see what he can do for us.

yeah..that lady pulling in front of Ben's bike could have totally been avoided if only the Steelers had some leadership...

Lol, I'm not to sure reason is your strongest card. Try it all again and let me know if it works out better for you.

holmes could be mother teresa in cleats and steelerfans are still gonna rip him when they realize rookie receivers just arent major contributors. hes gonna be lucky to have 3-4 passes thrown his way per game and even luckier to catch more than half of those.

if the fans and media are on a mission to ruin this guy theyre off to a good start. why expect the world from a rookie wr? does anyone really want or expect him to cut into heath's and ward's numbers?

its important to remember the steelers success and offense doesnt revolve around a potential 3rd wr on the depth chart.

I'm reminded of Plax more than I like right now. I grimaced when he said that about Ben, and it made me ponder that whole situation quite a bit. No matter how I turn it, it's not looking good.

Ben brings a lot of confidence on the field, and the kid will have to perform to earn Ben's respect there. A dropped ball or two is all it will take get him in line.

Ben's the leader of the team, and I have no doubt he'll get the kid straight on the football field. You are right--- Ben & Plax were buds when he was here. The team got rid of him for a reason, though, and I hope Holmes isn't similar in those ways. Time will tell.

i'm liking holmes more and more lol, i like the players ppl don't like. the ppl that don't like him right now will be slobbering all over him when he's winning us game. so he got arrested, who cares??? so he didn't apologize, who cares??? there was never anything to say he's sorry for, he didn't do nothing wrong. and maybe ben was calling the wrong number

im starting 2 think we should have picked up chad jackson instead.
