    Perhaps he feels the fans don't like him or is feeling uncomfortable/embarrassed about past drops. I too hope he can prove himself.

    wonder if anyone would give us a draft choice for Sweed? probably why we haven't just released him outright yet...
    No one will give up more than a 7th for a WR with a bad case of the dropsies. But, I would say any interested partner will just wait for his release.
    Bring Limas to camp, let him compete and show his skills, then decide. Maybe at least he'd show trade value. I hope Tomlin and coaches work with him to motivate him to at least compete here.
    Camp and practice isn't Sweed's problem.

    I always felt he couldn't do enough to make up for the past. Regardless of how many TD's he catches fans will always talk up his drops.

    I really hope he catches on somewhere else and has a good career. I would hate for him to leave the NFL without any success.

    It's like Bettis and the fumble... if we lost that game his whole legacy and future changes.

    Redemption, as a Steeler, might be the sweetest success he could achieve. I'm rooting for him, in any case.

    Re: More bad news re: Holmes

    Holmes has never done drugs per his website (1/30/09 article):
    “Everybody that knows me knows I have never done drugs,” Holmes said yesterday. “I have never failed a drug test. I just happened to have it in my vehicle at the time. Someone else was driving it.”

    Re: More bad news re: Holmes

    I thought it was pretty ridiculous how some on this board were condemning Ben after the initial reports of his latest meltdown came out. At least in that case there were reports. From legitimate media sources, the team, and the police.

    This thread is full of people ragging on Holmes based on a story SN1 heard from "a friend of a friend of a friend". Are you kidding me? Did I miss something more quasi-official?

    Just because it fits with the Randle El story doesn't make it true. It may very well wind up being true. But until it at least looks like it might be true...STFU people!



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    "Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

    Not many are "ragging on" Holmes. Like I've said countless times now, I hope its not true, but the guy who told me is pretty reliable.

    some guys like to make sure every post they make is factual, punctuated and doesn't contain the word never, always or use percentages that are 100% accurate.

    others don't care, iike to debate the rumors and hot off the presser stories.

    if Holmes isn't in trouble we are happy... the thread dies and another one is born.

    Well, my cousin's mother's sister's brother that knows Santonio said it's not true!

    Come on, friend of a friend of a friend
