Exclamation Holmes or Away??

Do you think that it was a mistake to get rid of Santonio Holmes to the Jets? When we got hardly anything in return! Steelers now have a lack of wide receivers with Ward getting old and Wallace inexperienced.

Quite simply, NO! Holmes is a Superbowl MVP - why let the Jets who are a vastly improving team make use of him, wrong move.

Not upset at losing him due to issues surrounding him, however really disappointed that we didnt get at least a 3rd round pick, or a player in return. Maybe a CB, they have a few!

Vick was amazing, would you have him at the Steelers! One man doesnt make a team. Cowboys for years have had great individuals but not a TEAM. If he was attracting negative attention and focused then get rid of him and he is someone elses problem.

I know one player does not make a team but look at Troy Polamalu, he rules our defence. Take another sport eg. football, the captain is the player who leads the team and i believe holmes couold lead our wide recievers or even our whole offence.

Holmes is gone, forget about him. As great a player that he is on the field he's a loose cannon off it. We new before he went he was going to get a suspension and then hes out of contract at the end of the year.
I expect us to miss Holmes as much as we missed Burress or Randle El when they left.

We have what looks like a potentially very good recieving core and I cant wait to see Sanders on the field.

Holmes has gone I know that but he was a great asset to our team and we have not replaced that get. Who is going to playing at Wide Receiver Mike Wallace, Heinz Ward and who else? I know we have awesome Tight End in Miller but those three can’t be involved in every play along with the running game. If the defence and offence play we could go far, but with the struggles with discipline and injury there is a chance of error creeping in to our game.

I suspect Randel El will be our 3rd wideout and Sanders should see plenty of action too, and I see him being top back up to Wallace, so if Wallace struggles watch out.

Randel El caught 50 balls last season, that's more than he ever caught for us in a season, so it seems there is plenty of life left in him yet.
