Default Cowher and Holmes Have a "Good talk"

Steelers Notebook: Cowher and Holmes have 'a good talk'
Monday, July 31, 2006

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



Coach Bill Cowher had his long-awaited conversation Saturday night with rookie receiver Santonio Holmes, not all of it about football.

"We had a good talk," Cowher said yesterday. "He's got a lot of work to do but he's committed to getting caught up to where he will feel comfortable."

Holmes has to make up ground off and on the field because of two arrests in May and June, and after he missed most of the Steelers' spring drills because his Ohio State classes were still in session.

He took his first steps on the field yesterday when he practiced with his new teammates in pads for the first time and made a nice leaping catch of a deep pass from Charlie Batch.

"I saw him make a couple good catches," Cowher said. "He looked fine."

Holmes, though, was beset a little by cornerbacks bumping him off the line of scrimmage, a normal occurrence for a rookie receiver.

"He's going to learn certain things as a receiver as far as bump-and-run coverage," veteran cornerback Deshea Townsend said. "He's a great route runner but he has to learn those things in bump and guys are going to test him. It's his first day. He'll get a lot better."

Hines Ward predicted Holmes will do so off the field as well. The Super Bowl MVP spent the week leading to training camp with Holmes. They worked out together at the Steelers' UPMC complex and ate dinner together.

"I hung out with him," Ward said. "He's a good kid. The misconception of what's going on off the field, that's not really relevant to us. We understand the situation, we really know kind of what's going on with everything.

"He's eager to learn the game. He wanted to come out here and really... prove 'I am worthy of a first-round pick.' He's working hard and I'm just excited to work with him."

Some should read this quote very slowly.

There'll be no ass kissing from me. I'll be the first to say he proved me wrong (hope to be able to do this soon). But he's done nothing yet. Let's wait and see.

I'm glad to hear that Cowher finally talked to him. hopefully after a couple more days of camp he'll get into the groove with the team, physically and mentally

Hey I'm willing to give Santonio Holmes another chance. But I don't care what anybody says. You don't want to start your NFL career off with two arrests before even signing a contract. But I agree we didn't know all the details surrounding his second arrest. So its unfair to pass judgement on Holmes. But Santonio has the right person to show him the ropes to be a pro football player. Thats very good to see Hines Ward taking Santonio under his wing. Just another reason to love Hines.

If The Chin and Hines have this much confidence in his attitude and his potential to contribute to the team, that's good enough for me at this point.

It could be worse ... he could be a Bengal which means he probably would have murdered two people by now!
