I guess the Rooneys were tired of the bull, I felt we should've got more for him but I believe in the front office, I'm sure they have a plan. Look for us to take a receiver in the 2nd round, maybe Golden Tate.

Worthlessberger's next.

Maybe we'll use the 5th-rounder we picked up to move up in the 2nd. I'd be surprised if he was still there that late in the 5th, but Tate in a Steelers uniform would be awesome.

I wanna know how much Holmes is paying the "witness" to say they are the ones that threw the glass. I have personally met Mr. Holmes and I wasn't at all impressed. This is a great move for Pittsburgh and I'm not a fan. New York will only lead to more problems for this fellow. Get your act together buddy or it's going to be a very difficult road.

He will be throwing to the same people he has been and probably a few new players.

Who is the other criminal? Ben has never been charged with a crime in his life.

A 5th round pick is all the could get for Holmes at this point. He has to many problems righ now. Would fit in perfect with the Bengals or ravens. Now he is the Jets problem.

It makes a lot of sense, he was in the last year of his deal and Pittsburgh wasn't givin him a long term deal, this cat can't stay out of trouble, he's another Plax remember him the other guy we let walk to N.Y. Smart move, we'll get another young talented receiver like we did with Mike Wallace last year, and I believe if Ben was in the last year of his deal he would've been let go too.

Holmes was "great". But came with a lot of baggage.
It was always "me first" attitude.
Time to move him and get something while they could.
He is already suspended for 4 games.

I wonder what was on the video that was "accidentally" taped over and why was the bodyguard standing outside the bathroom door and wouldn't let the victim's friend in?What a joke. Something definitely happened. Sounds pretty fishy to me.

He'll be throwing it to another college girl in the bathroom and then paying to have the video destroyed

Remember yall Hines Ward was 5th rd. pick, and if you're a Steeler fan you know we draft well, I trust our front office, they made the right decision

Toothless and brainless. You must not listen to facts. The DA said there is no camera in the bathroom. The tape that was written over was not relavant in the case.

Well I hope there wouldn't be any cameras in bathrooms...talking about being brainless. Any camera that has Little Ben on it is relevant as it shows who he was with and what he was doing at a particular time.
