One quick comment

Given everything that transpired between Santonio Holmes and his New York Jets teammates and coaches yesterday, and throughout the 2011 season, that April 2010 trade that the Steelers pulled-off is looking better than ever.

In return for their troubled star the Steelers received a fifth round draft pick in that year's NFL draft, a pick that was eventually traded to the Arizona Cardinals (who selected John Skelton).  In return the Pittsburgh re-obtained Bryant McFadden and a sixth round pick from the Cardinals.  The Steelers used that pick to choose Antonio Brown, this year's Steelers MVP.

Yeah, it's a funny game.
