    Holmes is becoming what we hoped he would

    Santonio had a monster game today. 5 receps for 75 yards and 1 TD. They make not seem like huge numbers but everyone of his catches was a monster play that kept drives going. He's cemented his place opposite Hines Ward, IMO. He's getting better and better every week, and just has a knack for getting open. This kid,for all his faults in being a punt returner is turning into 1 helluva WR for us.

    Cedric just doesnt make the clutch plays, and his lack of awareness on the field, especially on the sidelines could have cost us big time.

    All of Holme's 5 catches were huge today. I wanted the Steelers to draft Holmes. On Steelers Fever before the draft I was preaching why the Steelers should draft him. As a WR he is fine. But I hope when Reid comes back that he takes over the punt returns. But hey Santonio didn't fumble today on punt returns.

    hell yeah, i knew he was gonna be good, that's why i backed him up even though he kept fumbling on punt returns

    and in the draft i was happy as hell we got him, but i never once mentioned us getting him cause i thought he'd be long gone lol

    Great game by Holmes. First career touchdown, and lots of clutch catches. That's the kind of recieving threat I wanted to replace Randle El. This kid's going to be good.

    I like him in the receiving game, but please not in the returns. Good game by Holmes.
