He says he's the scapegoat for the Jets failure last year..

"It was playoffs on the line and your best receiver doesn't get but two passes thrown his way in 60 minutes of football," Holmes said (as transcribed by the New York Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/jets/2012/07/santonio-holmes-calls-himself-the-scapegoat-for-meltdown-in-miami-last-season)' Manish Mehta). "That's just hard to understand when you want everything just as bad as everybody else does and it just doesn't happen. And nobody has the answers for it. But the scapegoat is answer. And that's what happened."

Holmes did admit earlier in the interview that he was at the heart of the problem because of his knack for speaking frankly about the team's struggles during the season, adding that he needs to "(learn) how to hold my tongue and be more critical of myself instead of others."

and about his Super Bowl catch being the best ever..


In terms of great catches, Swann's is among the top three. From a "degree of difficulty" standpoint, however, Swann faces stiff competition from New York Giants (http://www.nfl.com/teams/newyorkgiants/profile?team=NYG) receiver David Tyree's "Catch-42" in Super Bowl XLII (http://www.nfl.com/videos/new-york-giants/09000d5d8069f011/Sabol-s-Shot-Tyree-catch), and Steelers receiverSantonio Holmes (http://www.nfl.com/players/santonioholmes/profile?id=HOL657297)' toe-tapping, game-winning grab (http://www.nfl.com/videos/pittsburgh-steelers/09000d5d826546a9/Greatest-Super-Bowl-moments-Holmes-greatness) the following season in Super Bowl XLIII.In an interview with WRKS-FM on Monday, Holmes said his catch was the better of the two (http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/jetsblog/holmes_says_than_game_winning_catch_v6RjBnZkguhkCe 6TicdASN?utm_medium=rss&utm_content=%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20Jets%20Blog)."Hands down, Number 10," Holmes said via the New York Post. "Ten toes in the end zone...He (Tyree) made a play that happened to be the play he was supposed to make but it did not win that game for them."

It's hard to argue with that logic about the super bowl, it was just flat out awesome. I still have that pic sitting on my Steelers shelf above the TV in my living room.

Rex Ryan and the Jets are a JOKE! They have a media whore back up QB, a loud mouth HC, diva DB and a arena at best starting QB... Holmes is stuck in the mud on a ****** team!

holmes catch was awesome no doubt, but the throw was much, much better than the catch. either way, it was a fantastic play in steelers history!!!!

ben threw it up into triple coverage with the game on the line, the catch was perfect though. not saying it was a bad throw but it was definitely a questionable decision to throw that ball....but holmes came up big after letting one get away from him on the previous play. thats probably the hardest catch you could possibly make in football

Holmes is right about the catch. Best catch ever made in the Super Bowl.

Yes his catch was the best of the 3 simple because it won the game. But Swann's was a thing of beauty. :)

He's totally wrong with this statement.
he was at the heart of the problem because of his knack for speaking frankly about the team's struggles during the season, adding that he needs to "(learn) how to hold my tongue and be more critical of myself instead of others."

It has nothing to do with speaking frankly, it has everything to do with learning how to be part of a team, instead of a me me me guy. But that fits right in with their coach.

But Ben did put it were only Holmes could get it....Ben trusted Holmes no doubt to make plays for him......They had such great chemistry with each other.......

The decision to throw that ball may have been questionable, but the throw itself was absolutely f*cking beautiful... Made better with an absolutely f*cking beautiful catch.

Holmes talent missed more than I have time to type about it but his T.O. attitude NEVER, everyone knows it how freakin stupid your team can be deal with it and move on when you have a chance.

Yeah it was a great catch with the emphasis on WAS it's history they probably don't talk about Holmes as much in a jets forum last time i checked this was steeler talk who cares about him now the jets suck and always will rex was tryin to say his teams have had the best defense over the last decade than anyone even if that's true they don't give lombardi's to the best defense

You can also point out that had Ben been able to connect with Holmes on the previous easier play, we wouldn't be talking about the circus catch that Santonio came down with. That's what super bowl's are all about though right? The drama with the game on the line. I think it was one of the greatest catches ever in SB history and I'd be hard pressed to argue against it being the very best.

When he was here though, man that slant pattern was money every single time. I miss that.

No argument it was a good catch, but a good catch doesn't make a career. You have to not be an idiot.."wake n bake" Holmes. Sucks to suck.

He should have made the catch before.

They were both great catches. Holmes' toe tapping was fantastic, but Tyree's catch, in the context of the game was phenomenal as well and was made in a legendary SB game (against a 18-0 team) and set the team up to win. It's hard for me to pick one over the other.

lol I love this board..Ben's throw was awesome(best ever in SB history given the placement given the timing) and it was what was needed to win the game..arm chair guys are questioning it now??? I believe that if Holmes was on the team vs GB we win that SB also.. as person he is a zero...as a receiver he is awesome and he is right about the Jets..how do you not throw the ball to him..lol BTW I think Holmes should have caught the one before also...but how exciting would that have been..
