Holmes: A Jets Super Bowl win would be a “slap” in Pittsburgh’s face

Santonio Holmes, Kyle Arrington

The Steelers have done a great job replacing Santonio Holmes this season.   But the Pittsburgh organization and its fans know well that Holmes has a knack for game-changing moments, and he could hurt them on Sunday.

Holmes was asked Wednesday if this week was personal to him:

“I think the personal game is out the way,” Holmes said.   “I got a chance to beat them the first time around.”

“This time it means everything  for the team, for the organization . . . I don’t care about the Steelers right now.   Those guys are in my team’s way.  We have one goal — to win the Super Bowl.”

Holmes said he didn’t understand at first what caused him to be traded from Pittsburgh.   (We have plenty of guesses.) He still has plenty of love for his ex-teammates, calling Troy Polamalu the greatest player he’s ever seen.

Still, he’s hoping to make the Steelers regret letting him go.

“Everything personal, will happen two, three weeks after,” Holmes said.  “If we win the Super Bowl, then everything is personal, that’s a slap back in those guy’s face for trading me.   For right now, that’s not even a focus of mine.”

(And if the Jets don’t win Sunday, at least Holmes can get back to a little offseason wake-n-bake a few weeks early.)

    Santonio might be the single reason Pitt won trophy #6. For that Steeler nation should be thankful.

    Rex ryan cant be beat
    his only weakness is them feet
    he chooses toes over grilled meat
    he becomes like a dog in heat
    he talks so much but hes backed it up
    wait till pittsburgh i thinks hes had enough

  3. knowerofallthings says: Jan 19, 2011 4:00 PM

    He’s going to make a big play late in the game and they’ll remember how good he is.

  4. drgfri says: Jan 19, 2011 4:04 PM

    Glad to see that Holmes can step beyond the “personal” issues and put his best foot forward….

    A Jets Super Bowl win would be a slap in the face of all things good and decent

    …and so the trash talk begins, anyway.

  7. realhousewivesofcincinnati says: Jan 19, 2011 4:08 PM

    I love Tone’ and everything he did in a Steelers uniform. Great player. BUT, WR is the most overrated position in the league as even Andre “Paul Bunyon” Johnson barely gets 10 touches a game — if hes lucky.

    The Steelers already won a SB with Hines Ward, Randle El, and CEDRIC WILSON as their WR core. Only the Colts in 07′ with Wayne/ Harrison had a “star” WR that has won a Super Bowl in the last 10 years. It seems more important to have guys that are consistent in their route running, know the hot routes, and can catch. Playmaking WR’s are a luxury to have, but not a necessity.

    Everyone that “freaked out” last off season when the Steelers dealt Holmes for a 5th round pick — now looks a little foolish. I cant wait for Timmons to welcome you back to the Burgh Santonio as soon as you cross the middle. Oh wait, you wont run those routes.

  8. hairpie says: Jan 19, 2011 4:11 PM

    i cant wait to watch him complain and cry and get flags called. he has his own rules, no one can touch holmes. what a baby.

  9. citizenstrange says: Jan 19, 2011 4:13 PM

    Actually it would be a bigger slap in the face to Holmes if the Steelers win the Super Bowl without him.

  10. scoob766 says: Jan 19, 2011 4:15 PM

    Holmes couldn’t be a #1 WR on 3/4 of the teams in the NFL, he should keep rexs foot in his mouth.

  11. iluvwikileaks says: Jan 19, 2011 4:16 PM

    Santonio is FLYING HIGH!

    GO STEELERS ALL THE SAME!!

    And, Pittsburghers will not lose sleep over a Jets Super Bowl win. We are proud of our team and aren’t going to cry over losing stoner boy.

  12. zookepr says: Jan 19, 2011 4:18 PM

    If the Steelers win on Sunday does that make the Pittsburgh front office look even better? No, get over yourself Holmes, act like you’ve been there before.

  13. deebo92 says: Jan 19, 2011 4:23 PM

    Such a diva. I was glad the Rooney’s canned him.

    Santonio Holmes: 52 catches, 746 yards, 14.3 yards-per-catch, 6 TD’s

    understand now?

    Pittsburgh sucks!

  17. geezohman says: Jan 19, 2011 4:41 PM

    i’ll give him credit for catching that pass for the SB win, seriously…

    what I won’t do is understand his complaining… he got his SuperBowl ring… then did his stupidness….. substance.. 4 game suspension.. worth only a 5th round draft choice…

    He is good… I hope the defense keeps his catches to a minimal…

    But he is NOT classy…

    Take a lesson from Bernie Kosar… Bellicheck pulled him as QB… sent him to Dallas..
    Check out his news conference… He was Classy about it…. no cry baby.. mature…
    Its a shame how much some rich athletes can let it go to their head.
    Wheres the class?

    Let me hear you got your act together now without drugs…
    Lebron wasn’t classy either… poor way to surprise a team that he played for and lived nearby since a kid. too bad

  18. cornellsteelers says: Jan 19, 2011 4:43 PM

    @herokravon

    Yeah, it definitely was all Santonio without any help from Ben or the defense.

  19. dumbaseinstien says: Jan 19, 2011 4:46 PM

    Like every other player made great in Steeler land & then went elsewhere (Plaxico Burress, Anoine Randel El, James Farrior, Bryant McFadden, Joey Porter, exc…), he will find that they individually do not make or break the team…which is why so many choose to come back given the opportunity!!!

  20. dirtydolphin says: Jan 19, 2011 4:48 PM

    Holmes is the epitomy of the NYJ. Arrogant, moronic, trash talking boys.

  21. bronco4lyfe says: Jan 19, 2011 4:49 PM

    It comes down to the QB’s this weekend. I will take Ben in that matchup. Jets wont be within 10 pts.

  22. kimcon22000 says: Jan 19, 2011 4:50 PM

    Jets already beat the Steelers a few weeks ago.
    And before you say “They were a different team then”, shut up.

  23. halftermguv says: Jan 19, 2011 4:55 PM

    Santonio can’t remember why the Steelers dumped him? Let me refresh his memory; 2 failed tests for illegal substances (reefer) and 2 off field incidents with the police. Strike four…you’re outa there!

    He was given more than enough slack to stay on the team but he failed miserably. The real slap in the face is being a Steelers number one draft choice and SB MVP and having your butt dumped for a low round draft choice.

    ===============================

    Homes played in 12 games, with a QB who’s still getting his feet wet. and also won 4 of those games almost by himself.

    Not saying Holmes is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but i’m sure glad Pittsburgh traded him.

    and considering the jets were 11-5 and pittsburgh was 12-4, both teams made out pretty well.

    ————-
    Your right he only made a superbowl winning catch that alot of the wr’s in the league couldnt make, and the catch last week to beat the “unbeatable” pats. Big time players step up in the playoffs not the regualr season.

    To be fair, Holmes did play in 4 less games due to his “wake-n-bake” activities. All considered, I would still take Wallace over Holmes. He’s a bigger threat, but can you imagine Pittsburgh with Ward, Holmes, AND Wallace? Scary thought.

    Right. I’m sure if the Jets win the whole thing, there will be Steelers fans across the country sitting in rocking chairs, shaking their fists at the sky and yelling “Santoniooooo!”

    I almost completely forgot that his “return” would even be one of the game’s subplots until yesterday. That’s how big of a deal it is to me (read: none).

    Mike Wallace is a baller. And Ben’s been in the clutch business long before Super Bowl XLIII and will continue to do just fine without Tone. That’s how the Steelers machine rolls, baby. Just keep replacing the parts. It’s not gonna fall apart if you throw one away.

    ______________________________________

    Or maybe not. After a holding call, Ben had to rally his team and drive them 90 yards for the winning TD toss — which he made on the previous throw, except that Santonio dropped it. Ben had to make two perfect throws, which he did, and Holmes caught the more difficult one and then risked losing the game with his silly LeBron baby powder celebration. Thankfully the refs chose not to penalize that silliness. And that’s Santonio.

  31. quincee33 says: Jan 19, 2011 5:22 PM

    @Realhousewivesofcincinati,

    “Wide Receivers are overrated” ???? Ask the Baltimore Ravens who can’t get a passing game to save their lives if WR’s are overrated. 10 touches doesn’t sound like alot but 10 touches equals 100 yards just like 25 carries equals 100 yards so to speak. You could even argue that the Bears aren’t gonna win a SB until they upgrade their WR’s. And really the Jets needed badly to upgrade their Wideouts and give Sanchez some weapons. Holmes is overrated in my books, and the Steelers don’t really need him, but if they wanna win a SB they need Mike Wallace to make some plays cuz Ward is getting long in the tooth.

  32. pappyjoe69 says: Jan 19, 2011 5:22 PM

    That was a “Super Great Toes Tapping The End Zone Sideline Super Bowl Winning Touchdown Catch” Santonio and everyone in Steeler Nation loved and appreciated it and remembers it! Thank you! But we also remember the domestic abuse charges, the stopped for speeding and finding your ashtray full of roaches charges, your infamous “Wake and Bake” Tweet and finally the NFL imposed four game suspension for illegal substances. You were a timebomb ready to explode and the Steelers couldn’t take another chance on you. That, Sir Holmes, is why you’re no longer a Steeler.

  33. mrnumbe says: Jan 19, 2011 5:24 PM

    Now what’s wrong with wake n bake?

    Of course he was stupid getting caught, but seriously, he is worth way more than that 5th round pick. The TD against the Patriots was worth at least a 3rd rounder it self!

    Go Holmes, smoke more weed. Just don’t get caught damnit!

  34. chobes68 says: Jan 19, 2011 5:28 PM

    Mike Wallace : 60 catches, 1 , 257 yards, 21 yards-
    per- catch , 10 TD’s
    Santonio Holmes : 52 catches, 746 yards , 14 . 3
    yards- per -catch , 6 TD’s

    ======

    not a fan of either team, but didn’t Holmes miss the first five games this year?

  35. delrmi05 says: Jan 19, 2011 5:32 PM

    Pittsburgh, like New England has class and will focus on the game at hand, even if the Patriots weren’t able to get the job done this time around.

    Minus Ben Roethlisberger, who in my opinion is complete scum. The Steelers organization, while playing similar smash mouth football (with a better vertical game mind you) to the Jets, is 10 times the organization New Jersey will ever be.

    Good luck Steelers

    Funny that the so-called “classy” franchise trades Holmes after finding his replacement in Wallace yet they keep Roethlisberger and James Harrison even after their multiple issues with the law.

    But hey, they got rid of Dookie Davenport and Jeff Reed.

    Stay classy, Pittsburgh!

    there’s a reason we called him “smokey”

  41. Deb says: Jan 19, 2011 6:06 PM

    @herokravon …

    Will always appreciate Holmes’s contributions as a Steeler, his play in SBXLIII, and that extraordinary final catch. I wish him a prosperous career. If you’ll recall, however, Ben threw a perfectly targeted pass on that final play. Despite their showboating, unless they’re returning kicks/punts, it’s not possible for wideouts to be singularly responsible for much in the NFL.

    On the other hand, James Harrison was singularly responsible for a 14-point swing in the score that night.

  42. hrmlss says: Jan 19, 2011 6:12 PM

    Um, Santonio, you have to beat Pittsburg, and then also WIN the SB. I see they take it one game at a time in NY. NE was the NYJ SB. The’ll get Destroyed this weekend. And I don’t like Pittsburg.

  43. ottawabrave91 says: Jan 19, 2011 6:17 PM

    He was traded because the thing he liked to “pass” around wasn’t a football. And he only likes to take”hits” off the field………….

  44. kev86 says: Jan 19, 2011 6:18 PM

    The jets second biggest win in franchise history was a divisional round win against the Pats. Thats on them. Super Bowl talk is nice but with their track record talk is really cheap. Impressive win against the pats but its not like they are the first team to do it. Ravens kicked the snot out of them last year at Gillette and the Gianst beat them when they were 18-0 in the actual Super bowl.

    Before I drift to far, I think Jets offense is a little too rinky dink and they are going to lose to Pittsburgh. Im a fan of neither team.

    Im a diehard Eagles fan, but am also a big ohio state fan and i always liked santonio. I even bought his steelers jersey. Soon, i will purchase a holmes jets jersey. I always tend to route for the steelers when they arent playin the eagles, since they are another PA team and for the exception of ohio state i route for mainly PA teams except for the penguins and penn state. I hate the penguins and penn state. However, I am routing for the jets this weekend bc of Santonio. He was one of my favorite all time buckeyes. Also, Rex Ryan being the son of Buddy Ryan, Im routing for him too. Regardless tho, E A G L E S EAGLES!

    Go get em Santonio. O-H-I-O

    ===============================

    First off, Holmes 4 less games did not cause him to get 7 yards less per catch.

    Second – Can I imagine Pittsburgh with Ward, Holmes AND Wallace? Sure can – 9-7 record in 2009, missed playoffs.

    Fact is, there is only room for one #1 wideout in Pittsburgh, and Wallace is that guy

  50. stixzidinia says: Jan 19, 2011 7:47 PM

    Uhhhh……First of all Mike Wallace is putting up better numbers than Holmes ever did. Second of all, 9 of the Jets points from the last game came from special teams return and a safety. That won’t happen again. Thirdly, Holmes already burned his bridge in the last game when he was taunting the fans…….all of whom were upset with the trade. Santonio isn’t smart enough to realize that the fans did NOT want that trade. But we’re damn sure happy with how it turned out. He was taunting the wrong people.

    Santonio is only as good as the guy throwing him the ball…..and unfortunately for him he’s got Mark Sanchez tossing him the ball. The Steelers D is going to eat him alive like last time. Won’t be any kick returns or safeties to bail him out this time.

  51. steelerzzzrule says: Jan 19, 2011 8:20 PM

    @theroc5156 …

    It’s funny that so many PFT dimwits feel compelled to comment with such certainty on things they know nothing about. Both Holmes and Reed have had “multiple” issues with the law. Neither Roethlisberger nor Harrison has had “multiple” issues with the law.

    Harrison had one altercation with his girlfriend, immediately reported it to the team, went through anger management courses, and has had no further incidents. Like many NFL players, Roethlisberger has been sued in civil court. His only “issue” with the law was when a woman accused him of a crime the medical exam showed never happened. He’s never even been arrested … unlike Mark Sanchez, who was arrested for rape in college.

  54. realhousewivesofcincinnati says: Jan 19, 2011 9:14 PM

    @quincee33

    It is one of the most overrated positions because you dont need a “star” or playmaking threat to win, just a good core of guys that know how to run routes and catch. Would you take a top notch # 2 WR over a great interior lineman (defensive or offensive)? Dont know if I would as they both are just as important but fans always drool over a star WR (see: Randy Moss).

    Check the WR core for the last 8 Super Bowl Winners to prove my point — with exception to maybe the 07′ Colts. None of the final four teams this weekend have a top 5 WR statistically (Wallace and Jennings are close). The Pats won 3 SB’s with Troy Brown, Branch, Patton and a bunch of other smurfs.

    Santonio is a great player, but by losing him this year the Steelers obviously didnt miss a beat because WR’s are EASY TO REPLACE.

  55. laxer37 says: Jan 19, 2011 9:26 PM

    I admire Santonio for everything he did on the field as a Steeler, but facts are facts. The Steelers passing game has excelled since he was sent packing.

  56. goldsteel says: Jan 19, 2011 9:49 PM

    So Santonio drew first blood? He doesn’t care about the Steelers but it’s personal. He loves some of his ex team mates but it’s still personal. The Steelers organization was up to it’s neck in unwanted controversy with Ben. The last thing the organization needed was another player with a 4 game suspension looming and an interest in perfectos full of Acapulco Gold.

    GO STEELERS!

  57. mborz says: Jan 19, 2011 9:50 PM

    @andyprough: Two more things to bolster your argument: Santonio never had a season where he had as many yards, or touchdowns, as Wallace did this season.

    That includes full (non-suspension affected) seasons with the same QB who threw to Wallace this year. That’s about as apples-to-apples as you’re gonna get.

    Holmes is a clutch receiver, I will give him that. He can also be somewhat of a goof who doesn’t always have his head in the game.

    You’re right, Holmes’ 4 less games didn’t cause him to get 7 yards less per catch…Braylon Edwards did. NY has two WRs capable of being #1s, not just one.

    Second…Polamalu and Smith were both big injuries last year to the Steelers. The D blew at least 3 4th quarter leads last year. That 9-7 record and missed playoffs is more on the D than on an “over crowded” offense.

    Fact is there is only one #1 in Pittsburgh, Wallace is well on his way, but Ward hasn’t handed over the reigns completely yet. Ward is still the #1 read in clutch situations.

  59. theroc5156 says: Jan 20, 2011 12:01 PM

    @Deb

    Was Roethlisberger not involved in 2 sexual assault disputes? Motorcycle accident?

    James Harrsion is a thug and while he may have only been arrested once, he’s still a thug. How many times has he thrown punches during actual games? Many.

    Don’t forget about Cedrick Wilson either. He was arrested and the team terminated his contract the next day. So why not Harrison’s or Roethlisberger’s? Hypocrisy. That’s why.

    So take your “classy” franchise crap and shove it. You’re no better than the Bengals in this regard.

    So the Steelers should have paid Holmes #1 money to be a #3 receiver, AFTER his drug suspension?? That would have really been dumb!!

  62. podevil says: Jan 20, 2011 3:32 PM

    And Holmes wonders why Pittsburgh didn’t want him anymore.. The Jets can be sure of one thing…Santonio’s days are numbered..He couldn’t stay out of trouble in Pittsburgh and he certainly won’t be able to stay out of trouble in New York..He has great abilities but he really isn’t that fast.. he is another Plaxico…full of himself…and his day is coming…I almost wish that the Steelers do lose the game on Sunday, so we don’t have to listen all the crap about bad play calls and why the Jets didn’t get a fair shake…

  63. Deb says: Jan 20, 2011 3:39 PM

    @theroc5156 …

    What an infantile response … are you in junior high school?

    What difference does it make that Roethlisberger was accused by two women when the evidence shows that both accusations were bogus? Mark Sanchez was actually arrested for rape–do you believe that means he’s guilty? Seven Packer players were accused of rape during this off-season, do you believe that means they are guilty?

    The first woman to accuse Roethlisberger was several years older than him. They had a one-night stand and she texted people the next day that she couldn’t wait to see him again. Her own account of the incident conflicts with the timeline of her text messages. She obsessed about him to coworkers for a year–so much that when he was schedule to return to the hotel, her bosses asked her to take paid leave. She freaked out and filed a lawsuit claiming rape and demanding $3 million from him and her coworkers. Cops have said there’s no evidence a crime occurred.

    Witnesses said the Georgia woman followed and propositioned him all night and her medical exam showed she didn’t have sex with anyone. She and her sorority sisters cooked up that story after he threw one of them out of the party for ragging on him about Nevada. The DA said he hoped they’d learned their lesson.

    So a guy gets targeted by two women instead of the one woman who targeted your QB and that makes him a rapist despite evidence and authorities saying otherwise?
