There has been a lot said about this guy to the right, Santonio Holmes. Heck, he has given us a lot of reasons to say the things that have been said. Public feuding with offensive linemen, culminating with on-field feuding will do that to a guy’s reputation.
He had some off the field problems as well, before he got to New York, and the one incident right after he arrived. He was traded to the Jets, a former Super Bowl MVP, for a fifth round pick.
After a career year in 2009 with Pittsburgh, he was a clutch receiver for New York. He caught a game winner against Cleveland in 2010 as well as a game winner against Houston. We all remember his huge catch against New England in the playoffs.
The question becomes, which Santonio Holmes will we see? The answer as I see it is, the good Santonio Holmes. Specficially, one along the lines of 2009 and 2010. Turn the page and we’ll talk about why.
