    Exclamation Santino Holmes at it again..."I'm a scapegoat...my catch was the greatest ever"

    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' 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 receiver David Tyree's "Catch-42" in Super Bowl XLII, and Steelers receiverSantonio Holmes' toe-tapping, game-winning grab 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."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
