Manning warns teammates not to let chance slip by
Seattle Pi - about 3 years
[...] he knows both the elation of putting his fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy and the anguish of watching it slip through his grasp, and he admonished his Denver Broncos teammates not to cut corners as they prepare to face the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 2. Wes Welker caught 11 passes for 103 yards for New England in the Super Bowl following the 2007 season, but the Patriots' shot at perfection ended when Manning's brother, Eli, threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds left to give the Giants a 17-14 win. Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie nearly won a ring with the 2008 Arizona Cardinals, when he had five solo tackles and broke up two passes against Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl only to watch Ben Roethlisberger's 6-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes with 35 seconds left give Pittsburgh a 27-23 victory. None of the Seattle Seahawks have ever played in a Super Bowl, the first team with zero previous Super Bowl experience since the Bills l ...

All Geno Smith's Rookie Nightmare Is Missing Now Is Freddy Kruger
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
In the span of just three weeks, New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith's rookie season has become a disaster, and it reached its lowest point against Miami on Sunday. On the heels of woeful back-to-back road performances in Baltimore and Buffalo, where he completed a mere 17 of 45 passes with five interceptions and zero touchdowns, Smith came home to engineer five failed drives, three of which were 3-and-outs, in the first half. The animosity of the home crowd was so intense that one could almost forget the vitriol once dedicated to the Jets' previous embattled quarterback, Mark Sanchez. "I have complete confidence in myself," Smith said after the 23-3 loss to Miami, during which head coach Rex Ryan benched him for the second half. "It's been a tough three weeks, but I think I am the best option for this team." Playing quarterback in the NFL is tough, and playing the position in New York doesn't make it any easier. Smith was a highly decorated high school recruit who enjoyed a suc ...

NFL Week 3 Football Picks
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
In making football picks for the NFL's Week 3 games, is it safe to believe that the league is settling down to "business as usual?" Will perennial "winners" start to establish their territories while recent dismal "losers" begin to fall apart? Aside from the absolute top and the absolute bottom of the National Football League, the answer is "no." If Denver's Oline can find a system to protect Peyton Manning after losing LT Ryan Clady, the Broncos should continue their steady rise toward preeminence in the AFC. As long as Marshawn Lynch stays healthy, Seattle and their terrifying defense have no fears until they face the Niners again in December. At the other end of the spectrum: unless Jaguars star runner Maurice Jones-Drew can not only rise above his injury, but also play quarterback--Jacksonville has a long way to go, while there appears to be mutiny brewing on the Jolly Roger in Tampa Bay and Cleveland fans have seen the new regime sweep away both 2012 first-round draft picks in o ...

On July 7, 2006, Holmes appeared in Franklin County Court in Columbus, Ohio for both a pre-trial hearing regarding the domestic case and a hearing regarding the traffic ticket. He pleaded no contest to the traffic ticket and agreed to pay a fine. While Lashae Boone, the mother of Holmes' daughter and the victim in the assault case, requested that the domestic violence and assault charges be dropped, the prosecutor refused. Boone and their daughter accompanied Holmes to court. The charges were later dropped.
    Holmes signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears on August 16, 2014.

  • 2011
    Age 26
    In the 4th quarter of the final game of the 2011 season against the Miami Dolphins, Holmes appeared to get into an argument with Jets offensive tackle Wayne Hunter while the team was huddling.
    More Details Hide Details As a result of the argument, Holmes was benched for the remainder of the game, and the Jets ended up losing the game, which resulted in the Jets missing the postseason for the first time in 3 years. His leadership qualities and credibility as a captain have since been questioned. Holmes finished the season with just 51 catches, the second lowest total of his career, along with only 654 receiving yards, by far the lowest total of his career. He also finished with a career low 12.8 yards per reception average. He did, however, tally a new career high in touchdown receptions with 8.
    Holmes re-signed with the Jets during the offseason, shortly before the start of 2011 season agreeing to a 5-year deal.
    More Details Hide Details He was named one of the team captains, along with starting quarterback Mark Sanchez, before the season began.
  • 2010
    Age 25
    During the 2010-2011 postseason, the Jets made it to the AFC Championship Game before losing to Holmes' former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
    More Details Hide Details
    The very next week, on November 21, 2010, Holmes caught a game winning touchdown from Mark Sanchez with 10 seconds left and the Jets went on to beat the Houston Texans 30-27.
    More Details Hide Details
    On November 14, 2010, with 22 seconds to go in overtime against the Cleveland Browns, Holmes caught a pass on the Browns 31-yard line and carried it in for a touchdown, giving the Jets a 26-20 victory.
    More Details Hide Details
    After serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Holmes returned to practice on October 6, 2010.
    More Details Hide Details Although Holmes was forbidden to participate in practices with his teammates and he was suspended from playing for the Jets during their regular season contests, he was still eligible to attend team meetings and work out daily at the team's facilities.
    On April 11, 2010, Holmes was traded to the New York Jets in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft (the Steelers eventually traded the pick to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a sixth round pick, which they used to draft Antonio Brown, and reacquiring Bryant McFadden; the Cardinals used the pick on quarterback John Skelton).
    More Details Hide Details Shortly before the trade, the NFL announced that Holmes would be suspended for the first four games of the season due to a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. The trade came after Holmes' incident in a nightclub, coinciding with Ben Roethlisberger's own legal troubles, and the Steelers wanting to set an example for its other players. Had Holmes not been traded, the Steelers would've simply released him, meeting a similar fate to that of former first round pick Huey Richardson, who was traded for a 7th round pick one year after going in the first round.
    On March 24, 2010, Anshonae Mills filed a lawsuit against Holmes over a March 7 incident in which she alleges Holmes threw a glass at her in an Orlando nightclub, resulting in a cut above her eye.
    More Details Hide Details Initially, Mills did not pursue charges, claiming Holmes and the police intimidated her into it, but the case has been reopened. Subsequently, after a Twitter comment criticizing the nightclub incident, Holmes told the follower to "kill urself." He later Tweeted it was time to "wake n bake," a reference to marijuana. Holmes alleges his account was hacked and it was not him making the comments. On April 29, 2010, according to a report filed by authorities at Pittsburgh International Airport, a flight attendant told police that Holmes wouldn't turn off his iPod when requested and asked that officers speak to him. Holmes got off the Colgan Air flight and spoke to the officers, who reminded him to comply with regulations, but did not charge the wide receiver with anything. Holmes later talked to Jets head coach Rex Ryan about the incident.
  • 2009
    Age 24

    More Details Hide Details He had 79 catches, 1,248 receiving yards, and five touchdowns and became Pittsburgh's first receiving target in which was surprisingly his last year with the team. He was traded during the offseason due to his brushes with the law (see section Legal Troubles).
  • 2008
    Age 23
    On October 23, 2008, Holmes was arrested in Pittsburgh and cited by officers for possession of marijuana.

    More Details Hide Details He declined in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving average. However, Holmes' still contributed big plays throughout the season, especially during the game versus the Cowboys where he caught a long pass that ignited a struggling Steelers offense. In Super Bowl XLIII, Holmes secured the Steelers' NFL-record 6th Super Bowl win after catching a 6-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger with 35 seconds left in regulation. Holmes caught nine passes for 131 yards and a touchdown, including four receptions for 73 yards on their final game-winning drive. He was named Super Bowl MVP, becoming the sixth wide receiver to win the award, and also was the third Pittsburgh receiver to win the award, following Lynn Swann and Hines Ward.
    Despite returning no punts throughout the 2007 season, Holmes explored returning again for the 2008 season.
    More Details Hide Details During the offseason, Holmes had set a goal to play in all 16 games throughout the season, increasing his weight by 11 pounds through workouts in the offseason. Holmes began the season with 2 receptions for 19 yards in a win against the Houston Texans. In the following 10-6 win over the Cleveland Browns, Holmes totaled 94 yards on 5 receptions and had a carry for 10 yards. In the following loss to the Eagles, he recorded 3 receptions for 32 yards. Holmes saw his first score the following week in an overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens, finishing with 61 yards on 3 receptions for a touchdown. Following a bye week, Holmes totaled 89 yards on 5 receptions in the win against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, Holmes was benched following being arrested for possession of marijuana. Holmes was benched by coach Tomlin twice. He was forced to miss the following loss to the New York Giants, but was activated again for the Monday Night game against the Washington Redskins.
    Holmes was named the Steelers' starting split end coming into training camp. He enjoyed a breakout season in 2007 as he led the Steelers in receiving yards, receiving touchdowns, and emerged as one of the better known deep threats in the NFL.
    More Details Hide Details In Week 1 of the season against the Cleveland Browns, Holmes caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger as they went on to defeat the Browns 34–7.

He also returned a punt 65 yards for a touchdown on December 17 against the Carolina Panthers.
    Early on in the Steelers' disappointing 2006 season, Holmes was criticized for his poor performance on special teams as a returner, a role in which he fumbled frequently.
    More Details Hide Details However, Holmes had better success as a receiver, displaying his athleticism and skill in several of the Steelers' games. He earned Week 6 Diet Pepsi Rookie of the Week honors for his performance October 15 against the Kansas City Chiefs, totaling 58 yards receiving and 13 yards rushing.
