Holmes really can be one of the best route runners out there, but it seems as if he only goes 100% when he knows he is the #1 option on the play. on those play-action passes ... he absolutely abuses DBs. the other times, though, half assn. that's doesn't work in the NFL.
feed Holmes the ball (assuming he holds onto it) and he is happy. when he is happy, he plays hard. not the way it should be, but that's the way it is.
And Hill needs to step up and start beating some coverage so things open up for Holmes.
