Santonio Tops 200 Pounds

As part of his quest for Canton, Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes has packed on some pounds.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Holmes has crossed the 200-pound mark for the first time in his career.

(Some might blame it on the munchies.)

I tipped the scales [Monday] at 201, said Holmes, who was listed at 189 in the 2008 NFL Record & Fact Book.

I look at it as if I have to be a complete receiver. . . . Ive got to be physical, Ive got to still continue with my speed, Ive got to have the great conditioning to last 16 games, play throughout the playoffs and be able to put in about 60-70 plays every week. I come here with great intentions of putting on weight.

But Holmes realizes that he could go too far in his quest to make his body bigger.

I think Ive got to slow down a little bit what Ive been eating lately, Holmes said. Im looking forward to coming to [training] camp around this weight, because I know Ill probably shed about 8-10 pounds throughout camp.

Ill play at about 195 for the season. Ill still have my strength, but losing the weight.

Holmes desire to bulk up comes from the reality that his performance in Super Bowl XLIII will make him a marked man in the coming season.

I really need that strength in the upper body because I know Im going to start getting more and more Cover-2 this season, Holmes said. Im going to face a lot more bigger corners this year than I did in previous years, so Ive got to get off those jams and separate myself from those guys.

I think theres definitely going to be more attention with the performance I put up in the Super Bowl and throughout the playoffs. Those guys are going to say lets try to hold him [down].

That said, Holmes was held to 55 catches and five touchdowns during the 2008 regular season without any extra focus.

In fairness, however, Holmes hit a new level during the playoffs. Hes determined to continue that performance; whether he does is something well get to see in a couple of months.
