Santonio Holmes: Stay or Go? Part 3: Clutch Play

New, comments

In his career, Santonio Holmes has established himself as one of the most clutch receivers in the game. On the game winning drive in Super Bowl XLIII, Holmes had 4 catches for 73 yards. This included a 40 yard catch and run to put the Steelers into scoring range and a spectacular 6 yard touchdown grab to win it as he stretched and kept his feet in. He finished the Super Bowl with 9 catches for 131 yards and that touchdown.

Holmes was extremely clutch during his season with the Jets. A 52 yard catch on a slant in Detroit in overtime set up the winning field goal against the Lions. A 37 yard catch and run for a touchdown in the final minute of overtime won a game and pulled out a victory that looked to be headed for a tie a week later in Cleveland. The week after that, Holmes ran a fantastic route to haul in a game winning 6 yard touchdown pass in the final minute against the Texans. He burned his man with a double move.
