When I first heard that Santonio Holmes had been traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the New York Jets, I was a bit perplexed. Not for the Jets; Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes as bookends sounds pretty impressive, actually. Mark Sanchez has got to be wetting himself in excitement at this point.
But what were the Steelers thinking? This is a very good, and possibly soon to be great wide receiver. Yeah, he’s got baggage. So what? There are alot of *ssholes in the NFL. You don’t trade a guy for being and idiot, and if you do, you get something of consequence for him. The Steelers didn’t.
Was that baggage all that bad? Is this new found conscience a serious gesture? What’s next? Gonna cut your quarterback? Lord knows Ben Roethlisberger is looking like a guy with some character issues lately. Gonna send him packing?
When I heard the Pittsburgh Steelers did exactly that while listening to ESPN radio tonight, it became perfectly clear what’s going on in the Steel city. Sending Ben Roethlisberger to the St. Louis Rams for the top pick in this year’s NFL Draft (which the Steelers are expected to use to select Sam Bradford) is an unfathomable gamble for a Super Bowl contender. But for a rebuilding team….
Willie Parker, gone. Santonio Holmes, gone. And now Ben Roethlisberger is out the door. You have to figure this is a business decision, although for the life of me I can’t see the logic. Or maybe the Pittsburgh Steelers front office just had a bit of a case of overreacting to last season’s collapse.
At any rate, settle in, Steelers fans. Gonna be a long year.
