    Washington better be part of the deal.
    I dont understand why you guys dont get this?? Santonio Holmes is a major off field problem. He isnt worth anything he can do on the field. He has 4 off field incidents including the lastest--coming up dirty on a drug test.

    Enough is enough.

    The trade didn't surprise me...The compensation did. His "Tweets" were just so uncharacteristic of a professional athlete. Almost to the extent where you could believe it wasn't him but an imposter. I could see it coming. Thanks for the memories...Hope you fall on your face!!!

    This is how.

    Personally, Chadman is kinda proud of the organisation for taking this stand.

    It shows that integrity still holds for this team, despite the current employees forgetting that.

    If Ben is charged tomorrow, expect something similar to come down, Chadman expects.

    And it would be the right thing to do, too.

    Concur! Proud as ever to be a Steelers (franchise) fan.

    It's not just win or lose, but how you play the game. And playing the game the right way will bring your the wins... as this franchise has demonstrated through the years with 6SB titles.

    I'm sorry but I don't get this "The Steelers are Sending a Message" thing. Holmes got just what he wanted ... shipped to a bigger market to show off his skills.

    I don't have any problems with them trading Holmes but to only get a 5th is ludicrous in my opinion. There are teams drooling over getting a proven receiver ... TB, Oakland, Seattle, and KC come to mind and I'm sure we could have worked a deal for better than a 5th rounder. They could have tried for a 2nd and settled for a 3rd rounder.

    I've also come to the conclusion that we are no more the "squeaky clean" team that we used to be under Art Rooney Sr. When we get rid of Wilson and excused Harrison it became hard for me to say we don't give preferential treatment to the better players.

    I was never a huge Holmes fan. I thought he was too inconsistent but he had a ton of talent and the ego to match. But from a football standpoint I think we got screwed in the trade unless we get more than the 5th.

    I agree... Holmes has a looong list of off field problems and went public with his demands for a big market team. What message does this send? Why is today a great day to be a Steeler fan? Because we got rid of a SB MVP who didn't care about our fake image of purity?

    I have no problem with shipping a guy out like Holmes but I find it odd how this move proves how great our franchise is. I think the value was booty and we could have waited a few days or a week to get a little more. There better be more value coming or more scandal coming because as of now it looks like we were robbed.

    Sweed better step up... and Wallace better step up too. There is a big difference without Holmes in terms of DB scheme.

    All I know now after my gut emotional reaction subsided is that we have 11 draft picks. We're now primed to trade up at least once, possibly twice and if some how some way Washington is involved I love the trade.
