    Good call that smokey joe was worth less then a 3rd. I am glad you were right for the sake that it made our team weaker. Oh buy the way it might bite the Jets in the butt at some point but I think they have a very good chance to make it to the super bowl!

    Agreed, I think the Jets have a solid chance to win the AFC. I think the Steelers will feel the loss of Holmes this season.
    The Steelers’ went through seven consecutive drafts (2003-09) without taking an offensive lineman in the first two rounds, the longest such streak by any franchise this century.

    Agreed...this is the dumbest move in Steeler history. Not only did they lose a star WR...but they gave him away to a very strong conference opponent. We will see who is standing on the "moral" values of the NFL when the Jets put it upside the Steelers heads.

    Both of which are looking at starting next season suspended for 4 games. And Uh...Braylon Edwards is as overrated as they come. The Jets were actually trying to shop him and couldnt get any takers.

    Wasn't aware of Edwards suspension possibility. Agreed again on betting against. Nonetheless I'd rather a bet not even be in the air with Holmes on a non-contending NFC team.

    Edwards is overrated, but it doesn't mean he isn't good. He still is a good player and certainly better than average in my book.

    My point is that I believe we could have done better without too much strain. I do agree with your points mostly though.

    you are flipping nuts lately

    worst move in the teams history??? Are you serious??

    Holmes is an excellent receiver- but- he is a receiver. A guy that touches the ball about a half dozen times a game.

    Factor in his 4 game suspension, on his second failed test. In addition- it is safe to assume he knew about this suspension- and certainly knows the leagues position regarding smoking dope- yet he still felt it prudent to post his wake and bake comment.

    That shows incredible stupidity- and a blatant disregard for the league and team.

    Stoner almost certainly gets popped again. Just a matter of time.

    Now, as far as the worst decisions in team history-

    They should have traded him to the Raiders. We have a ballot initiative out here in CA this November which, if passed, will legalize (not just decriminalize) possession and sale of marijuana.

    EDIT: I meant to add that I sorta wonder if this doesn't indicate the Steelers are expecting some 'down-time' for Ben this year. With a year left on his (Holmes') contract, if they thought they had a good shot a SB this year I think they would have just 'bit the bullet' and kept him on for one more year despite the potential distraction . But if Ben has to sit for disciplinary reasons, well you get what you can.
    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."

    Nuts...let me tell you what's nuts. That fans would actually applaud our team for making a conference SB contender stronger. That's nuts.
