Santonio Holmes got dealt from the Steelers due to bad behavior. But Holmes believes that, in the eyes of Steeler Nation, his excellent play on the field for Pittsburgh will override his personal conduct off it.

Holmes was the MVP in Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl win over Arizona. He isn’t downplaying the significance of his return.
 
"It’s been on my mind for quite some time,” Holmes told Connor Orr of the Star Ledger. "I just never let it play into factor until now.

"I had a great relationship with those guys. I’m pretty sure (the fans) will give me a standing ovation once I get on the field. I’m pretty sure you’ll look in the stands and see a lot of No. 10 jerseys with ‘Holmes’ on the back from the Steelers."

If Ben got cheers when he finally stepped back on the field, then the fans should give some respect to Holmes. Both players impacted the team and organization with thier lack of judgement. Even though Holmes got traded, I think he deserves as much as Ben got. Cheer for one, then cheer for both. Don't be hypocritical.

I never once thought that Pittsburgh should have gotten rid of him.

And what happened?  They've only gone 10-3.  Further proof (as though we needed it) that the Steelers are one of the best organizations in the NFL, and maybe American sports in general.

What can I say, I loved him on the field and would never forget that amazing TD in Superbowl 43 against the Arizona Cardinals. But then again for him to continue his bad ways off the field were to much and it was shame to see him leave. I think having him still would of been amazing for are team. But Wallace has def did a nice job in his place and Im extremeley happy we got Randle El back. So I would cheer him b4 the game but wants the kickoff starts. I hope he has the worst game of his career and his return to Pittsburgh was a loss. GO Steelers!!!

The audacity...  Typical Steelers/Patriots/AFC East Mentality.  This is the Jets identity.  They don't need anyone telling them how good they are...because they lie to themselves all day!  All the dropped passes by Braylon and Holmes this year? Their hands are a wee bit sore from patting themselves on the back from the time they wake up in the morning, until they go to bed at night.  If Steeler Nation applauds this miscreant, then they truly are classless and hypocritical, and not a single damn one of them needs to talk about Cleveland fans ever again!

Wow, amazing how quickly fans can forget what a players done for them.

Nah we the fans remember the Superbowl TD.... and the drop TD the previous play, plus the  Wake and Bake comment, and the Possession charge, and the ........ well you get the idea.  Steeler Nation is happy with Mike Wallace, very similar production at 10% of the cost.

Holmes in Pittsburgh was a roller coaster ride, the fans took the good and the bad. Very similar to Plaxico Burress, all world talent, questionable character. With Big Bozo and the allegations, it was a PR band-aid that Colbert had to make. This was Santonio's second involvement with a banned substance, the Rooneys had seen enough. I just do not get these kids. Play 10 years, amass a small fortune, then move to California where you can get a prescription for pot due to"football related injuries". Then you chill and get legally baked all day.  But that is the smart thing to do.
