Thread: A guy to bring back?

  1. #11
    Really? Santonio Holmes, with his one whole 1,000-yard receiving season, and whose only noteworthy accomplishment in the five years since Super Bowl XLIII is creating chaos in the Jets locker room? I know three Jets fans, and they don't want him back either.

    On a related note, the career implosions of Santonio Holmes and Mike Wallace prove who really stirs the drink in Pittsburgh.

    I hear ya, but you guys soon forget how he carried us in the playoffs. The dude is a wasted talent and I think his immaturity is over.

    Umm... have you even read any news on Holmes since he left the Steelers? He has completely disappeared from the Jets offense, and is generally disinterested in dedicating himself to football. The Steelers don't need another underperforming prima dona. The lockerroom is only now cleaned of the malcontents and me-firsts that spoiled the team the last few years.

    I'm more inclined to believe his career is over.

    It amazing how some trades can seem so lop-sided in one direction at the time, but in retrospect, it's lopsided in the other direction.

    Giving up Super Bowl MVP Holmes for a 5th round pick, then trading that pick to Arizona for Bryant McFadden and a 6th round pick that we used to take...Antonio Brown. We panicked at the time, but made out like bandits on that deal (much like the Colts thought they were fleecing the Browns with the Richardson trade earlier this year, but it looks like the Browns may have fleeced Indy in that one instead).

    I'm sorry but it's the Jets and Miami...

    I can't fault these guys for putting up weak stats on these teams...

    While I don't want Holmes back he would be a beast if Ben was throwing the ball to him.. same with Wallace.

    Well you just made the case for why you don't spend on guys like Holmes and Wallace. It isn't about them and they aren't the difference makers. It was about the QB throwing them the ball.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    In this case, nothing to do with stats. Don't need the lack of dedication to the game the guy has shown lately. (its possible his friend Ben could turn that around, but at what cost?). Rather risk a draft pick.

    Ben made Stoneyo and Wallace some money. Time to make some other lucky WR a bunch of green.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL
