    Santonio Holmes circling the drain.

    MORE BAD PRESS FOR SANTURDIO
    Mike Florio

    Though he hasn't been arrested or pulled another muscle this week, there continues to be a stream of bad press for Steelers rookie Santurdio, who recently was busted twice in a three-week span.

    In the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, former NFL personnel executive Ken Herock says that he believed Santurdio was "ready to explode."

    "I had an impression of the kid, where he was from, such a tough area, but soon as he told me he had three kids I knew it was going to be a problem," Herock said. "He was dirt poor, all of a sudden he's got a little money, you get a little rambunctious. . . . Add it up -- no money, poor family background, three kids already -- something's going to happen."

    Herock, who previously worked for the Raiders, Falcons, and Packers, now has a service called "Pro Prep." He helps players prepare for pre-draft interviews, and he worked with Santurdio in January.

    (Is it just us, or does Herock's decision to talk publicly -- and negatively -- about a guy who apparently paid for Herock's services appear to reflect incredibly poor judgment? Maybe Herock's inability to realize that he should have been a bit more discreet also traces to "no money, poor family background, three kids already.")

    Meanwhile, the executive director of the Pittsburgh Women's Center and Shelter is asking the Steelers not to provide a financial windfall to a guy accused of roughing up the mother of one of his children.

    "I would suggest the Steelers slow down and look at the whole issue before they sign the guy, allowing for due process to take place," Shirl Regan said during a Monday appearance on ESPN 1250 in Pittsburgh. "What kind of example will Bill Cowher, the Rooney family and the Steelers set if they invite Santonio Holmes to sign a contract?"

    Apparently, she's not alone. In a recent poll conducted by ThePittsburghChannel.com, 71 percent of the respondents said that the Steelers should cut Santurdio loose. (Amazingly, the guy who'll wear No. 10 for the Steelers already has become even more despised in Pittsburgh than the last guy to wear that jersey.)

    Though such an extreme outcome is unlikely unless Santurdio gets busted again before signing his contract, his problems apparently have renewed debate in the front office regarding whether he should be a member of the team. As we've recently explained, there were some members of the organization who didn't want to draft him -- and there likewise are some now who are advocating a hard line for a guy who has shown that he doesn't yet "get it."

    Adding to the frustrations of some members of the Steelers front office is the fact that Holmes recently has pulled a hamstring. We reported the injury on Sunday, and there's been no mention of it by the "real" media, apparently because so many of them are taking well-deserved vacations. (We keep hearing people use this word "vacation," but we don't quite understand what it means.)

    But have faith, PFT readers. Word of Santurdio's bad hamstringio will come out soon enough, even as the powers-that-be in Pittsburgh rack their brains trying to figure out how we got our mitts on the info.

    I hate to see that when any NFL player goes down the drain like he is. His life is so perfect and then he just throws it away because he thjinks he is above the law. How Sad



    Thank you Josdin for the sig
