    SANTURDIO PULLS A HAMMY

    A league source tells us that Steelers receiver Santurdio (known elsewhere as Santonio Holmes) has pulled a hamstring. As the source remarked, "He apparently wasn't running fast enough from his police or his significant other."

    The source characterized the injury as something that "should be the last straw, but won't be" for the troubled rookie, who has been arrested twice in the past four weeks. Most recently, 22-year-old Santurdio was busted for allegedly busting up the mother of one of his three children.

    As we've recently reported, there was a difference of opinion in the front office as to whether Holmes should be selected with the 25th overall pick in the draft. We've also heard that Santurdio is on "thin ice" with the Steelers, who (we're told) were warned about him prior to the draft.

    But Santurdio still has the favor of folks in high places with the club (i.e., Coach Chin), and there won't be (for now) an effort to cut ties with Holmes or to make him a low-ball offer that he'd be likely to refuse, forcing him to sit out the entire season and re-enter the draft.

    Look for his agent, Joel Segal, to wait until the guys in front of him and behind him in round one have been signed -- and then to argue that Santurdio should get something right in the middle. But if Santurdio screws up again between now and then, he might have to take a one-year, $275,000 deal or otherwise not play at all this year.

    On the draft forum I started a thread called "head cases".

    This was fro draft prospects whose "measurables" and highlight tapes made them look like good picks. However according to PFW draft guide they other had issues.

    The comments on Holmes was he was like Terry Glenn physically and mentally. They aslo said that the team that drafts him better make sure what they were getting before giving him first round money.

    I think that they understated it in his case. But, he's probably the type of guy that will have a good rookie year, then have the $ and won't be a factor after that.

    I'm really surprised that the Steelers went up to get him.

    It seems like only last month -- wait, it was only last month -- that a Steelers troll stopped by to explain that the Steelers took Holmes over Jackson because of his superior character:

    Ahh, memories...

    re

    How lucky did we turn out?

    We got the best receiver in the draft, and in the SECOND ROUND to boot!
    Most media reports have talked about Jackson's amazing hands and unique maturity and knowledge of the position, while Holmes has done nothing but get in trouble with the law and get injured.

    This reminds me a little of 2000, when all these teams picked QB's but we snagged a fiery kid named Brady in the 6th round. I am becoming more convinced that we seriously lucked out with the Jackson pick.

    Also, I mentioned it before, but I have to keep re-iterating it until I am proven wrong. Montana didn't get Rice until his 7th season. In Brady's 7th season, we draft Jackson. Anyone see any parallels?

    Some more:
    Montana-Young, Brady-Cassel
    Craig (Montana's 5th season), Maroney (Brady's 7th season)

    OK I'll stop. Is it obvious that I was a huge fan of the 49ers back in the day?

    TROLL! ;)

    I have to agree though. It's impossible to say who will be the better reciever of the 06 draft.
