    Like the article said, a 5th round pick for a SB MVP... Unless there's something SERIOUSLY wrong with Holmes, it was a TERRIBLE trade.

    A 4 game suspension couldn't be the reason. The guy is 26 and entering his prime. Why in the world would they trade him?

    That makes the Jets awfully dangerous...

    This is stupid if it is only for a 5th round pick.

    There has to be either more in this trade we haven't heard about or the Steelers REALLY wanted to get rid of Holmes for some reason we don't know.

    I can't believe this. And they are only dangerous if Mark Sanchez can actually get him the ball.

    My only guess is well... a theory, that they're gonna somehow keep Roethlisberger, and they just wanted to clean their image. Somewhat.

    Last year Holmes got more than 1,300 yards... eh

    Agreed, and definitely agreed.

    If Sanchez is average this year, the Jets are my pick to win the Super Bowl. They just robbed Pittsburgh.

    The Steelers dumped him because he's been a liability throughout much of his career and are reasonably concerned he'll ultimately wind up with a 1 year suspension after this 4 gamer: Santonio's Steeler career ends the same way it started | ProFootballTalk.com

    Plus this is the final year on his contract, and the Steelers probably don't want to spend the money to renew it. Not when you have a high risk player who can't avoid trouble.

    Holmes also said he wanted to play for a bigger market..... That probably means the steelers where not going to be able to resign him, so they got rid of him.

    And since Holmes and possibly Edwards are going to be suspended for the first 4 games, I hope the packers play them in one of those first 4 games. You can bet I"ll be at the game and the Patriot game.

    I think Edwards is predicted to get a game or two at the most for a suspension.

    The talent drop off of Big Ben to Sanchez is huge. I bet holmes tries to go the free agent route after this.

    I think they did this because of public image.

    And that is just dumb. Are you telling me they couldn't trade him for a 4th or 3rd? I don't believe it.

    They wanted to get rid of him. He's the scapegoat to all the bad rep they're getting...

    I think they will be fine. Look at what they did to us last season, they are so deep at WR it doesnt even matter.

    Now if Big Ben is charged their season is over.

    I believe I saw on ESPN a couple days ago that the police in whatever that town is in Georgia aren't going to charge him.

    At the same time, though, some are seeing this Santonio trade as a message to Ben to shape up or they'll ship him out.

    Yeah and ESPN also ran a story two days before Vick was charged saying there were no charges coming. From now on I just wait until I here it from a legit source. I assume he isnt going to be charged though.

    Of course its a message. They took away his favorite WR that was having drug problems. It was a classy move by the Steelers.

    Winners in March don't usually win in January...

    They'll play us. We'll see on the field who's better...
