Seems everyone over the radio waves and out here think Holmes will be the escape goat.

Anyone hearing this, or think he could be out of Pittsburgh over this whole deal??

That case doesn't have much backbone but the NFL can do what they want so we will have to wait and see.

I said this about Ben's situation and its the same for Santonio's...its he said/she said with a very sketchy "victim"....I dont see him being charged and if he's not charged he will not be suspended, cut, traded or anything like that...the worst case scenario would be if Santonio gets charged but even if he does he wont be cut or traded...he would probably get a 4 game suspension...

But like I said, he's not going to get charged, suspended, cut or traded...

Santonio has not been charged nor arrested and, under the Personal Conduct Policy, the NFL cannot suspend him if neither occur....

I don't think anything will come from the Steelers over all this sh*t when the smoke clears......but, I wouldn't want to be the next Steelers player to F up.

dude rooney i guess isnt pleased that he publicly went along telling fans to die on his twitter page.

im guessing rooney prefers to not have role models like that.... thats why he hasnt tweeted for awhile lmao i bet he got busted

i wouldnt be suprised to see some fine or ban w/e from the rooneys for that tweet or several

Holmes isn't going to be out of Pittsburgh over this..I mean seriously if people actually thought for 2 seconds that the Rooney's are going to get rid of their 2 time super bowl winning QB and Super Bowl XLIII MVP, then they need to have a serious couch session with a mental health professional.

He's going to be here, he's going to be on the field, he's going to be productive and be a big part of the offense this year...end of story.

Holmes will pay the girl some cash and the throwing of the glass incident will be over.

please this is stupid.

the browns carry cocked and loaded guns in an airport, which i think is a felony. i dont here the browns sending their NT to the dogs.. :greengrin:

maybe we are trading holmes for a few good draft picks.

see whos in town.. today..


The five players include two big-name wide receivers, Notre Dame's Golden Tate and Oklahoma State's Dez Bryant. Also at their facility today is Oregon running back LaGarrette Blount. Blount was suspended by his team for much of last season for punching an opponent and Bryant was suspended by the NCAA for having a relationship with an agent and he played in only three games.

The two other visitors are linebackers, Koa Misi of Utah and Adrian Tracy of William & Mary.

Ed Bouchette was on KDKA saying he thinks this will be Holmes last year. He's wants to be paid what he's worth,well in his mind. He wants to play in a bigger market ,which I don't understand why that's a big deal. Hell put up some numbers over a whole season and ya may find the STEELERS are willing to pay ya.
He's lot like our last first round pick,Plexiglass, lots of potential but hasn't lived up to it so far...:2cents:

If Holmes wants a HUGE payday, I would rather trade him. Wallace is doing better than we thought and could easily replace Holmes. We could draft another receiver and give Sweed one more chance as well.

We have Wallace and a reciever that can get open but not catch.
Even if Tone is a cancer which I don't think he is, then I would rather stick to someone already established to the locker room.

BUT, I would do a SWEED for MARSHALL trade, since everybody on here THINKS Sweed will be good surely other teams see it too so lets trade him.

Exactly and Meachem was a first round pick.....Some times it takes time for guys to develop.........I'm not giving up on Sweed yet.....Especially with the latest rumor that Holmes wants out of Pittsburgh since he feels the Steelers won't pay him what he is worth in his mind......To bad I really like Holmes......I wonder if the Steelers will look at a WR early in the draft now?.....

i wouldnt give up on sweed to fast.

this may be his year to open up his game.

like i said.. if were as hard on ben's endzone int's as we were on sweeds drops as a rookie.

ben would be gone... but he gets to keep trying so he is better.
when will doixon get better? when he is on the field playing real games.
until then he is not going anywhere.

experience makes you better... sweed needs some time on the field. standing on the sideline doesnt build any confidence.

Bonus


Adam B. Swickle sent the evidence to the lead investigator Wednesday by overnight mail. He would not disclose what information was provided that he hopes will derail any criminal case against the Steelers receiver.

"We have received substantial and . . . undisputed evidence that Santonio Holmes had nothing to do with the throwing of that liquor. He was not the one that did it," Mr. Swickle said.

more people writing this: bleacher report

If the Steelers do believe that Holmes's future in the Burgh is over, look for them to possibly make a trade during the first round of the NFL Draft.

As I stated in my previous article, don't be shocked to hear that the Steelers and Dolphins work out a trade for Holmes.

If, in fact, the Steelers do deal Holmes, don't be too surprised if they make a run at restricted free agent Brandon Marshall of the Denver Broncos.

Marshall was born in Pittsburgh, and previously stated that he would enjoy playing for the Steelers. Other than his occasional attitude, Marshall plays the type of football that the Pittsburgh Steelers play: TOUGH.


or maybe oakland for a

lmao are you high? Sweed for Marshall, who has multiple 1000+ yard seasons and a first round tender next to his name? Marshall is a legitimate #1 receiver. Santonio isn't even that yet.

Here is another sweed fan, I was 2 yrs ago but he has done nothing to prove crap, yes he can get open and block, well that's nice and all but someone forgot to tell him to bring his hands he used in college. I will still cheer for him but I have lost faith in him.

I'm sorry you get offended by a guy asking if you were high. I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not. There isn't a sarcasm font. What am I to expect? People on here thought I was crazy when I said Farrior reeked this year and are only now getting the picture that he lost about 8 steps. There are a lot of dumb people on this board with a few quality posters. I couldn't tell which one you were.
