    Notice the connection

    Holmes is a little thinner than ideal for his height and it limits his strength to break tackles. He does not protect the ball well -- he carries it very loosely and will be a fumbler in the NFL if he does not improve how he carries ball. He makes bad decisions fielding punts and does not consistently field kickoffs well because he tries to body catch the kickoff while on the run. He tends to lose focus occasionally, and it leads to him running nonchalant routes, body catch some easy passes and drop some passes he should catch easily.
    I guess the scouts knew what they were talking about. I worry when he's taking kickoff's or Returns Does anyone else feel this way

    That is nothing new. Holmes was a hell of a receiver at Ohio State. I wonder how many fumbles he had as a Buckeye. You think someone could pull the stats up?

    During his last 2 years when he was always getting the ball he never put the ball on the ground

    I just thought it was funny how they wrote that and how many times Holmes fumble this year with returns

    Holmes just isn't cut out to be a punt returner. It takes a different type of person with unique vision to be able to field a punt and return it effectively. I like Holmes on kickoffs, he does well...but on punts he's not real good yet at being able to avoid the pressure and hold onto the ball.

    The people on Ohio State should stop watching the browns and protect the ball

    He hasn't lost any yet as a WR so it's not all that bad with with. I do get nervous with him back there though. We need to get Reid back for this.
