    Antonio's Brown's 5 for 151 give him 55 for 925 in 13 games!

    The young 6th round pick that we got (along with Bryant McFadden) in exchange for the 5th round pick we acquired for Santonio Holmes is already significantly better than Holmes himself (41 catches for 552 yards in 12 games this year). Amazing.

    that really was a beautiful catch and run to seal the game...

    how did this guy last until the 6th round?

    Holmes numbers would be better if he had Ben as his QB.

    To be fair to Holmes, he does have a terrible QB and an OC that would prefer to run the ball. But, I feel that Brown is at least as good. It is really hard to compare them. I prefer Brown's attitude and love the way he has earned Ben's confidence. I'm very glad he is on this team and he'll be dirt cheap next season too. Great draft pick.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Last night during the post-game interview with the NFL Network crew, I thought he sounded like Tomlin wrote his dialogue...

    He said something like, "It wasn't our best game, but we made the plays that we needed to make in situational football."
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.

    Interesting note (a more direct comparison):

    In Santonio's second year in the league, with Ben as his quarterback, he played in 13 games (starting all 13). He had 52 catches for 942 yards.

    In Antonio's second year in the league, with Ben as his quarterback, he played in 13 games so far (starting 2 of them). He has 55 catches for 925 yards.

    Holmes had more touchdowns (8 vs. 2) but Brown offers more on kickoff and punt returns (interestingly enough, Holmes didn't return a single punt or kick in his second year...as a rookie he returned 26 punts and 18 kicks, and in his 3rd year he returned 34 punts and 0 kicks, but no special teams whatsoever in year 2).

    If you figure in the the better value (1st round vs. 6th round), plus the better attitude (no run-ins with police), I'm THRILLED with what this kid brings to the table.

    It could be real tough to resign Brown if we keep waiting. I think he has made more critical plays this season than even Wallace.
