VIDEO: Never Forget Santonio Holmes Dominating for Steelers During 2009 Super Bowl Run

Remember Santonio Holmes’ dominant 2008 postseason


It’s hard to believe that the Pittsburgh Steelers held the Lombardi Trophy 11 years ago.


In their last Super Bowl victory, there was plenty to remember, but one memory that sticks out was wide receiver Santonio Holmes dominating their run to even get there.


NFL draft writer and Steelers Depot contributor Daniel Valente has not forgotten. He posted this on Twitter to jog anyone’s memory:


Never forget how Santonio Holmes took his game to another level during the ’08 postseason. During that postseason, the Steelers won their 6th Super Bowl & Holmes was a big reason why:

– 226 receiving yards

– 3 TDs (2 receiving, 1 punt return)

– Super Bowl 43 MVP


Holmes had a touchdown in each of the team’s playoff games. In the AFC Divisional Round, he took a punt return to the house against the San Diego Chargers. In the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens, Holmes scored a 65-yard touchdown.

In the Super Bowl, that might have been his best performance. Holmes was Big Ben’s most reliable target and he made his mark by catching the game-winning touchdown using his tippy toes in the right corner of the end zone.


All in all, Holmes did something Antonio Brown could, and never will do. That led a team to a Super Bowl victory.
