Santonio Holmes, T. O. Or No ?

Let's hope the Pittsburgh Steelers don't have another Terrel Owens on their hands with 1st round draft pick, Santonio Holmes. Holmes has gotten into trouble twice after being picked #1 by the Super Bowl XL champion Steelers. His first arrest came in Miami on Memorial Day weekend for disorderly conduct and his 2nd arrest was on June 18th in Columbus, Ohio for domestic violence against Lashae Boone, the mother of one of his three children.

But that's only where the story begins. Apparently,the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger tried to talk to his future wide receiver after his 2nd arrest, but Santonio never called him back. "I called him a bunch of times and left a bunch of messages for him, and he has never called me back, so I don't know how to take it," Roethlisberger said two weeks ago. "The ball is in his court ... " Santonio, that's no way to treat the one who could make you a star. Roethlisberger said he was trying to do what Jerome Bettis did for him when he was dealing with his problems. Let's hope Santonio Holmes brings his apologies to camp and thanks Ben for his support. Get the rest of the story. That's Pittsburgh Steelers news.

I really don't want to be Holmes with Cowher as my coach, or Pittsburgh as my city, if he turns out to be a drama queen. If he can put this all behind him as just preseason flukes, and be a productive member of the team, I don't think there's any city that would accept that more that Pittsburgh.

I agree with dr obvious. Plus, Holmes has got a long way to go before he's in T.O. territory. A very long way.
